Weeks before state governments released their own contact tracing apps for registering people in a shop or some other location, Tower Systems released a free and secure QR code based solution.
Many small business retailers embraced our free solution. It provided them with an immediate solution that they could show to their customers and thereby demonstrate safe protocols in place, which were key to maintaining shopper traffic.
Being nimble like this is important in small business, especially in businesses that serve small businesses.
What was a stress-inducing announcement from a government about a requirement became an I can do that moment because of our rapid deployment of our QR code solution.
We have ensured the security of contact data collected, not used or accessed it ourselves and ensured the removal of data as per privacy requirements.
Helping small business retailers in situations like this is another ay we can show our local relevance.
