Accredit Solutions offers platform to help Governments lift Coronavirus lockdowns

Accredit Solutions offers platform to help Governments lift Coronavirus lockdowns
April 23, 2020

With more than four billion people, more than half of the world’s population, now under lockdown orders, governments around the world are turning their attention to the ways in which they might go about easing lockdown restrictions - looking to find balance between the high economic and social costs of lockdown against the, potentially higher, costs of a secondary infection crisis.

Mindful that whether restrictions are lifted by age, industry, geographic area, or by the results of wide-spread anti-body testing, public health departments have an urgent need to collect and interrogate massive amounts of data, the Accredit Platform developed by accreditation software specialists, Accredit Solutions, has been built to collect and interrogate unlimited amounts of data, files and documents as a means of approving and producing accreditation access for high-security events and venues and has already been used by several governments for various state-sponsored events.

Now it is being offered to public health departments looking for a way to collect and manage data from a variety of sources to model strategies for lifting lockdown restrictions, and identifying those individuals or groups of individuals safe to get back to work.

Accredit Solutions Chief Executive, Peder Berg explains "the Accredit Platform already offers the kind of functionality and API integrations needed for a project of this scale. We are extremely proud to be able to offer the Accredit Platform as a solution, and play a part in supporting governments get their populations back to work as safely and efficiently as possible.”

Utilising end-to-end encryption and fully GDPR-compliant, the Accredit Platform is able to act as a secure central data repository that an unlimited number of public sector departments, private-sector companies or individuals can feed into with data, files and documents. The Accredit platform can then produce a physical or electronic clearance certificate or permit to help identify those able to work.

Berg explains "producing software systems to manage large amounts of inbound data is what we do and what we have been doing for almost 20 years. Every organisation that has the means to support others during this crisis should do, so if we can help out, then we will."

In additional to government-led events in the UK and Ireland, the last 12 months has seen the Accredit Platform used by the ICC for last year’s Cricket World Cup, the TCS New York City Marathon, England Rugby, New Zealand Rugby, Cricket Australia, The BAFTA’s, BRIT Awards, London Fashion Week and several top Premier League teams. Accredit Solutions has offices in London, Dubai, Melbourne and the United States.
