Zoho Corp.’s latest modular solution called BackToWork is designed to enable businesses and organizations to safely transition back into the workplace. Zoho is a technology company that offers a suite of software applications for Sales, Marketing, HR, Finance, and IT teams.
Free for the remainder of 2020, BackToWork, powered by Zoho Creator, is the latest program to be introduced as part of the company’s ongoing relief efforts, which support businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Zoho Corp., today announced BackToWork, a fully comprehensive modular solution enabling businesses and organizations to safely transition back into the workplace.
Back in March, amid global office shutdowns, Zoho introduced Remotely, a free suite of 11 business applications designed to help companies of all sizes transition to remote work. Since its release, more than 25,000 organizations are using Remotely, which will remain free for businesses through Sept. 1.
Zoho Vertical Relief Plan
In the next phase of relief efforts, Zoho unveiled its Small Business Emergency Subscription Assistance Program (ESAP), which continues to provide Zoho’s small business customers free access to their existing Zoho applications. Nearly 20,000 organizations have taken advantage of ESAP, providing financial relief during this crisis.
In April, Zoho’s Vertical Relief Plan was rolled out, offering businesses in three hard-hit industries — Retail, Government and Non-Profit, and Education — custom-built tools and assistance programs to navigate pandemic-related issues. Zoho is entering a new phase with BackToWork, giving businesses around the world a safe and secure way to return to the office.
“Now that organizations are planning to re-open in some parts of the world, we want to help them resurge, this time through BackToWork, an application enabling companies to maintain end-to-end workplace safety and meet compliance needs, without affecting productivity,” said Gibu Mathew, Vice President, and GM, Asia Pacific Zoho Corp. “The next phase of normality in the workplace would also need confidence-building steps from employers and this application would help in that direction.”
Scalable to companies and organizations of all sizes, BackToWork supports Chief Operations Officers, Chief Human Resources Officers, Facility Heads, and their teams in making critical decisions around returning to the workplace without compromising on the safety and compliance aspects.
The application consists of six modules designed to address every concern involved in the process of re-entering the workplace, all within one secure, easy-to-navigate solution:
Safe Entry: Define multiple buildings and locations and control facility access based on employee wellness and travel history via a contactless end-to-end check-in system through generated QR codes.
Employee Wellness Assessment: Track workplace wellness by defining self-assessment, safe entry, and travel policies. Employees can securely and privately submit a wellness questionnaire reporting travel history, recent medical history, and other pertinent possible exposure histories.
Maintenance and Assets: Define and manage assets and building maintenance requests for employees. Repair/replacement requests can be handled in the app.
Admin Control Panel: Gain a 360-degree view of workplace data in preconfigured dashboards as well as add and manage your employees, and define roles for tasks such as approvals, and emergency contacts.
Communication: Materials such as announcements, FAQs, and best practices, policies, and safety documents can be shared with employees and managed in the Communication module.
