COVID-19: Coy launches `BackToWork’ safety module for businesses, organisations



Zoho Corporation, a global technology company offering business software applications, has introduced ‘BackToWork’, a comprehensive modular solution enabling businesses and organisations, a safe transition back into the workplace.

Mr Andrew Bourne, Regional Manager, Zoho Corporation, on Thursday announced in a statement that the `BackToWork’, powered by Zoho Creator, was the latest programme to be introduced as part of the company’s ongoing relief efforts.

He noted that the programme was supporting businesses impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

According to him, the programme will be offered free to organisations in the remaining months of the year.

“We have seen tremendous successes in our existing initiatives, aimed at helping organisations through COVID-19 and its associated lockdowns.

“Now that businesses are reopening, we want to help them at this time through `BackToWork’, an application enabling companies to maintain end-to-end workplace safety.

”Scalable to companies and organisations of all sizes, `BackToWork’ supports Chief Operations Officers, Chief Human Resources Officers and others, in making critical decisions around returning to the workplace, without compromising on the safety and compliance aspects,” he said.

According to him, the robust 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.

Bourne said that `BackToWork’ is a user-friendly application that also allowed for advanced customisation for companies that had specific requirements.

He said that the application could be easily integrated with top HR platforms like Zoho People and Bamboo HR and also with Active Directory and Zoho Directory.

According to him, it is currently available in English, French, Japanese, Chinese and Arabic and will soon be available in Spanish, Portuguese, and German languages.

He said that `BackToWork’ also ensured a level of confidentiality that no other vendors in this space could guarantee.

The regional manager said that Zoho did not allow any third-party trackers to monitor usage behaviour and never sold any data, because Zoho had built its entire technology stack.

Bourne said that the company was able to offer the most secured experience to its users without compromising on data privacy.

”Zoho `BackToWork’ users have the assurance that their data is confidential and protected and only users themselves maintain ownership of that data,” he said.

He noted that on the pricing and availability of the programme, `BackToWork’ would be offered free of charge until the end of the year, after which it would cost N780/user/month.

He noted that this was in line with part of Zoho’s ongoing efforts to support businesses during these uncertain times.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Zoho Corporation is a global software company with over 45 applications in every category.
