The social distancing function was added to an existing product: the patented Presence Control solution – which was also developed in Flanders by Ticto, a start-up that was acquired by RightCrowd. With that smart badge holder, companies can make sure that only authorized personnel are present in any given area at any given time.
“Because we already had a solid base to work from, we were able to develop our wearable extremely quickly,” Bart Vansevenant, chief product officer at RightCrowd, explains. “In just 8 weeks, we went from the initial idea to a finished, marketable product. The best part is that we can serve both our existing customer base through a simple software update, as well as our new customers.”
