Shipbuilding Company Keeps Processes in Check with Touchless Temp Solution

Business Environment Challenges

A large shipbuilding company located in the Pacific Northwest, was looking for a simple and cost-effective solution to take their employees’ temperatures and eliminate the need to assign staff or hire outside contractors to do so.

The Director of Security at the shipbuilding company contacted Sharp for a demo after a colleague at another company passed along some marketing materials from Sharp about LivMote™, a touchless solution for temperature, mask checks and screening questions. They had hired contracted guards to manually take the temps throughout the day of their 10,000 employees, with shift changes every eight hours. The cost was significant, which is why the company wanted to investigate a better, more cost effective method to screen employees.
