Technology solutions and information sharing protocols can help States in reopening their economies safely

Danny Lessem, Chief Executive Officer at ELMO Software

ELMO Software‘s CEO, Danny Lessem advances the idea that existing technology solutions can be vital in order to facilitate the next step in reopening the Australian economy.

This is through secure information sharing of employees’ COVID-19 vaccination and test status between Government, industry businesses and the technology sector.

ELMO Software advises embracing tech solutions

Government announced new check-in and vaccination status app integrations. ELMO Software hopes to ease employers’ task to manage records of employee vaccination and test status.

Government and businesses share data about workers’ taxation, superannuation and salary through highly secure payroll software solutions that simplify single-touch payroll.

Protocols like APIs for businesses to connect and determine an employee’s vaccination status should be explored to share information with employers through secure technologies.  

These check-in app integrations are crucial to reopening hospitality and retail venues.

However the hospitality sector and other vital industries will need different technologies to help them keep data about the vaccination and test status of their workforce. 

Industries such as construction, manufacturing, education and aged-care will be the first to face compliance challenges to manage employees’ vaccination and test status. 

ELMO Software has recently released a new software solution, COVIDsecure, to help businesses automate record keeping of the COVID-19 testing and vaccination status of their workforce. 

ELMO Software executive’s comments

ELMO Software’s Chief Executive Officer Danny Lessem argues that securely sharing information will be an integral part of helping businesses reopen safely and securely. 

“The Government already works with employers to share information about an employee’s salary, superannuation and taxation via payroll software solutions.”

“It’s not too great a stretch of the imagination to think this type of information sharing could take place for an employees’ vaccination and test status too.”

“Just like there are payroll solutions in the market, there are tech solutions such as COVID secure to automate record keeping of employees’ vaccination and test status.”

“Figuring out how government, industry and tech solutions can work together to reopen the economy safely while keeping information secure is an important national conversation.”

“There are entire industries that are going to need to keep track of employees’ vaccination and test status information to remain compliant with Government regulation.”

“Using software will make it easier for them to do so, using software with vaccination and test status information securely flowing in from the Government will make it even easier.”

“While the country is moving ahead with vaccinations, it’s important to look at the tools needed in the near future to manage COVID-19 in the community and the workplace.” 

“Governments across Australia embraced technology to manage COVID-19. The next step in their journey is to work with technology players and businesses to share information.”
