As companies started to shut down due to the coronavirus, Varchasvi Shankar began working on the best and safest way to bring people back to offices and factories.

Through Sqwirrel LLC, a subsidiary of Shanker’s company, V2Soft – which he is the founder, president and CEO of – they created the patent-pending app, CompanyTRAK.

"What it does is it helps in managing the primary exposure with employees within an organization," Shankar said. "It's very neat."

Since their founding in 1998, V2Soft, headquartered in Bloomfield Hills but with locations all over the world, has always been about more than just providing high performance IT solutions.

“It’s a passion of mine to build software applications,” he said. “It’s a passion of mine to solve real world problems with technology solutions.”

Other ways his company has been able to do just that have been through iConnectX.com, a patent-pending social fundraising platform for non-profits.

But right now, the focus is on CompanyTRAK.

How it works is employees can download the app through their company’s Enterprise App Stores, which Sqwirrel LLC distributes CompanyTRAK to. From there, companies are able to let their employees use the app from their corporate provided devices or personal devices. The app is not available via Apple or Google play stores.

Once the app is downloaded, all employees need to do is download it and make sure it’s connected to bluetooth. The app will do the rest.

"Say I'm in contact with 10 people in my office for meetings or walking by the hallway, it tracks the people in my company I’ve interacted with over the last 14 days," said Shankar, who mentioned it only tracks those people have come within six feet of their device.

If any employee becomes positive for the coronavirus, they are able to push a button in the app that activates an authorization code to make sure it wasn’t by accident. From there, CompanyTRAK will notify every other individual who has been exposed to that person in the last 14 days. A positive diagnosis notification can be sent out through a company’s human resources department or the app itself.

Due to it's geofencing, CompanyTRAK only tracks people once inside the building where they work. Everything is kept confidential. They also consulted with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and legal experts.

For employees without a cell phone or one that’s unable to download the app, Shanker has a solution for that too – bluetooth tags that they can carry around while at work.

How have companies reacted to CompanyTRAK? Enthusiastically.

"I think people are super excited. They all want to do the pilot,” Shankar said. “Any time we tell someone we have something like this they ask if they can use it."

Originally, though, this wasn’t the app the team had planned on releasing. That was ViralTRAK, which they were hoping to have available via the Apple and Google play stores.

According to Shankar, those two play stores have policies that no longer allow coronavirus apps to be released to the public unless it comes directly from a government agency. But there is hope the app might be able to reach the public. Shankar said they have already sent it to Governor Whitmer, and would like ViralTRAK to be free for all Michiganders, if released.

"I'm sure she has so many other, bigger battles,” he laughed. “At some point, if they come back to us, I would love to release it to the public."

Social Distancing Solution to Bring Employees Back to Work

Social Distancing and Contact Tracing Technology, a Safe Way to Bring Employees Back to Work

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., June 5, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Many states are opening up after the Covid-19 shutdown, companies are starting to get employees back to work, but with opening, there are rules around bringing employees back.

As an example, Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, recently sent an order, Executive Order 2020-97,
to all business owners in Michigan. Included in this order is the following:

Provide COVID-19 training to employees that covers, at a minimum:

  • Workplace infection-control practices
  • The proper use of personal protective equipment
  • Steps the employee must take to notify the business or operation of any symptoms of COVID-19 or a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19
  • How to report unsafe working conditions.
The above includes a lot of work for both company and employee. Tools to help with these needs include:​

  • Self-declaration – a set of questions or PPE needs required to be answered daily as employees enter the building
  • Contact Tracing – tracing contact of employees breaking the 6-foot proximity recommendation by CDC over a period of time
  • Social Distancing – ability to track and warn employees when approaching or breaking the 6-foot proximity of another employee.
  • Data Collection – collecting data on contacts, to determine which employees have symptoms or test positive, and a way to inform employees they are exposed and what to do.
From the CDC website

"Adoption and evaluation of digital tools may expand reach and efficacy of contact tracers."

CompanyTRAK is the leading digital solution to help with Self-Declaration, Social Distancing, Contact Tracing and Data Collection. With patent-pending technology including mobile location services, Bluetooth tags and scanners, the solution traces employee interaction within a geofenced building. If an employee has contact within the CDC recommended 6-foot distance, that contact is logged. If employees self-reports as symptomatic or having tested positive, CompanyTRAK notifies an exposure risk to any employee that they have been in contact with over the last 14 days. This minimizes employee risk in the office or facility by understanding who is at risk, symptomatic, or is tested positive. The solution leverages a combination of proprietary mobile technology, web portal and Bluetooth tags to achieve this and be accurate.

“We built CompanyTRAK to help companies bring their employees back to work and provide a safe means of operating their business leveraging technology,” said Varchasvi Shankar, President & CEO of CompanyTRAK.

CompanyTRAK includes a daily “Self-Declaration” with customizable questions, a PPE list and temperature input. This helps with understanding which employees are prepared for the day and which should return home or work in other areas.

Data is securely encrypted and available through our CT Portal. This portal enables assigned admins to set-up/geofence locations, manage users, run reports and send out broadcast messages. When an employee is exposed, self-reports as symptomatic or positive, the admin is provided a notification and views all contacts that employee has had since adopting the solution.

CompanyTRAK helps companies bring their employees back safely while meeting regulations now. It includes a mobile app, web portal, and Bluetooth tags and scanners to help quickly and efficiently.

The solution to getting employees back to work in a safe environment.

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sqwirrel LLC, a Michigan company, has developed patent-pending technology utilizing a combination of enterprise mobile apps, with Bluetooth tags and scanners to bring employees back to their workplace called "CompanyTRAK". The solution provides a safe way to get employees back to work, keep them mindful of social distancing and alert them to possible risks of exposure from symptomatic, positive tested and exposed employees. CompanyTRAK helps HR and internal health professionals manage exposure to COVID within their company and to isolate all exposed individuals.

CompanyTRAK follows employee interaction with other employees from the time they enter the building using Geofencing technology. "We first announced our public solution, ViralTRAK in April," according to Varchasvi Shankar, President & CEO of CompanyTRAK, "where I was able to give an in-depth overview of the public app in a featured segment on WXYZ Channel 7, an ABC local affiliate. If any of the members test positive, they simply press a button in the app. All the app members who have been in the CDC recommended safety distance in the past 14-days of that member who tested positive would be notified of possible exposure."

CompanyTRAK uses a proprietary, advanced location services model plus technology add-ons without collecting any personal information. The solution identifies which employees have been within the CDC recommended parameters of the self-reported symptomatic or positive tested employees over a 14-day period. It identifies primary and secondary exposure, which is unique to CompanyTRAK. The Admin Portal helps company HR and other authorized personnel to manage employees with daily PPE and temperature checks that employees need to follow.

The solution went from ideation to fully functional in just a few weeks, utilizing our existing technology framework and platform solutions. We are working to develop additional use cases to help companies get back to work and keep their employees safe.

"Using CompanyTRAK helps employees feel safe and maintains the current social distancing rules. We are working on ways to bring this to other industries including hospitals and schools," said Ray Drzala, Marketing Director. "We are learning more about increasing government requirements and company needs as we continue with conversations about our solution."

CompanyTRAK is currently being tested at multiple sites and available on Apple and Android Enterprise App Stores for corporations. "This solution can help us get back a little closer to normal and aid significantly in business continuity to identify exposed employees within companies," said Varchasvi Shankar, President & CEO.
