Appian, a low-code developer that assists financial services providers with automating their business operations, has introduced a free-to-use Coronavirus (COVID-19) response management software application for its clients, which include major government agencies.
Appian’s management noted that the application, which is currently available only to firms with at least 1,000 workers, may be “fully configured and adopted within two hours.” It helps corporations set up a central or single command center in order to ensure the health and safety of company staff.
Users of the software application don’t have to be existing Appian customers. The application allows workers to keep track of their important health information, locations and travel histories.
The app operates via Appian’s HIPAA-compliant cloud platform. The company said that it is using the software to establish a COVID-19 help department in order to support its workers.
The application could serve as an effective tool to onboard new clients.
Appian’s management stated that the aim of the new application is to assist the world’s largest employers in dealing with economic instability caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Appian’s clients include Barclays, Commerce Bank, Credit Suisse, Santander, and State Street.
Sidney Fernandes, chief information officer at the University of South Florida, stated:
“Centralizing accurate information about our people, where they are, and what they might need, and reaching our whole community is key to coordinating our organisation during crises.”
Appian worked with the university, during the hurricane season in 2018, to keep track of its 50,000 students. Some of the same technology that’s now being used by the coronavirus application was used at the time of the hurricane season.
