Necessity is the mother of invention

From Genetec:

They say necessity is the mother of all inventions and this announcement is a perfect example of that. A few days ago, McCormick Place, the largest convention center in the US, reached out to Genetec with an idea: they wanted to be able to use their existing Access Control system data to help identify if any employees or badged visitors had been in close physical contact with someone who had recently reported a positive diagnosis for a contagious disease, so they could be informed and take the necessary steps. Genetec was able to quickly develop a “Contagion/Contaminant Proximity Report” for Synergis, its access control system, and the company is now making it available to all its customers, free of charge.
