Amika Mobile products selected for testing for COVID-19 contact tracking by Canadian government
Ottawa-based Amika Mobile says its situational awareness, command and control products and mobile apps have been selected through a competitive process for a COVID-19 tracking project with the Government of Canada by Innovative Solutions Canada.
The company says contact tracking will enable the Government of Canada to enforce its quarantine law and assist health care workers and first responders with COVID-19 incidents, ensuring individuals are able to receive critical messages from front line workers and respond to them promptly, saving hundreds of thousands of personnel hours in tracking who has COVID-19 and who their direct contacts are. Amika says its Situation Commander and Amika Mapper will be used to map them in real-time to support public safety and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Amika Mobile has operated as an essential service during this pandemic crisis and has continued to support customers in the U.S. and Canada leveraging its products for critical and emergency communications to their employees, customers and stakeholders, via integrations with IPAWS and AlertReady regional and national alerts and by tracking their critical employees during the pandemic.
“We are keen to work with the front line workers in collaboration with the Government of Canada testing out our award-winning and innovative life safety contact tracking solution during this critical time in history,” said Amika Mobile’s CEO, Sue Abu-Hakima, in a statement.
