Foko Launches COVID Symptom Checker for Retailers

05/20/2020

Foko Retail, a provider of retail task management and communication software, has released a tool that’s designed to screen employees for symptoms of the coronavirus.

MyCheck-In is a self-assessment tool that allows users to screen themselves for potential COVID-19 symptoms before reporting for work. Based on the results, retailers can identify employees who are at risk of contaminating the workplace and notify users when they need to stay home. Foko said that the tool doesn’t record personal information and securely stores the results.

The company has also created a website that tracks store re-openings across the United States, known as When Will Stores Reopen, that provides merchants with news about state reopening plans and changes to policies, procedures and guidelines.

In March, Foko Retail announced it was making its communication module free to use internally for retail teams affected by COVID-19. The module remains free for retail teams until September 2020.
