One of the benefits of ScanForce is that Sage 100cloud and Sage Intacct users have their own individual logins. Once logged in, the device they are on will recognize them and display the features and data relevant to that user. Any activities performed on any device will be associated with the user name they are logged in under. This empowers them to share devices, eliminating the need to have one device per worker.
This opportunity to share devices - perhaps across multiple users working different shifts, or when there is employee turnover - presents some new challenges in the current climate.
Not only should devices be sanitized regularly under normal circumstances, even if they are not being shared, but it is now especially important to sanitize devices regularly and between users.
Whether it’s ruggedized mobile devices, or just your own personal phone or tablet, here are some resources to help you understand how to best mitigate this one risk area for transmission of COVID-19:
