Vaccine tracking feature VaxTrack released by workforce management provider Ento
With a number of Australian states and territories moving to require early childhood education and care (ECEC) employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19, Melbourne-based technology firm Ento has launched VaxTrack, Australia’s first COVID-19 vaccination tracking feature, for its leading workforce management platform.
VaxTrack enables workplaces, including ECEC settings, to manage frontline staff vaccine requirements and keep track of employees’ vaccine status for safety and compliance. It has been designed to support those responsible for ensuring employee vaccine requirements are compliant to remain up to date with current regulations.
Ento Chief Customer Officer Ami Price-Gagnon explained that the system is designed to assist managers to keep track of vaccine requirements in a way that is easy to use. For workplaces such as ECEC, where vaccination is now mandatory, having visibility of vaccination progress is vital for compliance, but can be complex without the use of special features such as VaxTrack.
“VaxTrack will help businesses stay on top of changing health orders and easily confirm that their workforce is rostered correctly depending on the role and location vaccination requirements,” she explained.
VaxTrack enables managers to have full visibility of staff and job roles that are identified as required to be vaccinated through Ento’s workflow functionality. Employees simply upload proof of vaccination including a record for the first and second shot, which managers can then validate to ensure staff are compliant.
The VaxTrack feature is completely customisable for individual businesses and job roles, which provides businesses flexibility when rostering staff across different industries or states where vaccine requirements might differ.
As COVID-19 vaccination regulations change daily across states and LGAs, the roster builder can be configured to automatically ensure the correct staff are being rostered, depending on their vaccine status and the requirements for the role or location, providing managers with reassurance that the business and staff are fully compliant.
Simple reporting allows managers to view what percentage of their workforce is partially or fully vaccinated and clearly shows the workforce vaccination status, which can be filtered by role, location and division.
While health advice for the virus and regulations continue to change, businesses can futureproof workforce with automated and scalable onboarding of new staff and setup vaccine expiry prompts for managers and employees, in the likely scenario booster shots will be required.
