Its Temperature Sentinel solution uses thermal imaging technology to identify those who may be suffering from COVID-19 or other illnesses, allowing business managers to maintain a live, 24/7 overview of site visitors.

NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance has provided two loans totalling £300,000 which have been invested in technical development including Temperature Sentinel, marketing and training for the team.

“In the coming months, industry and commerce across the UK will be pressed into service to adapt and thrive through creativity and smart investments,” said Connectus Group Chief Technology Officer Duncan Shaw.

“Our new Temperature Sentinel service can not only allow businesses to keep harmful viruses from entering their premises, it can also send a clear signal to employees, stakeholders, clients and partners that positive action has been taken as part of a long-term business strategy.

“Confidence is key as the country gets back to business, especially if the ‘new normal’ means a lasting change to the fundamentals of how we all manage offices, workforces and visitors.”

FW Capital Portfolio Executive Melanie Taylor said: “As the world returns to work after lockdown, businesses across the UK are going to have to introduce safety measures to secure continuity for the future.

“The technical team at Connectus are leaders in their field and are continually developing new products and services. The Temperature Sentinal technology will help businesses get back up and running which is vital to reboot the economy.”
