Appian Offers Free Application to Manage COVID-19 Response
Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) has announced that it has created a free COVID-19 Response Management application for enterprises and government agencies. True to Appian’s commitment for speed, the application can be fully configured and adopted within two hours.
The app establishes a central command centre to safeguard the health and safety of employees. It tracks health status, location, travel history and any COVID-19 incident details. Employers can see the health and work status of all employees, by geography and department. The application runs in Appian’s HIPAA-certified Cloud.
The app also enables organisations to offer community support to their employees. At Appian, we believe workplaces are more than simply jobs, they are communities, and they should rally together in challenging times. For our own internal use, we have created and automated a “COVID-19 Help Department” to connect employee volunteers with employees who need assistance. Appian has scores of volunteers rallied to help employees in need — delivering groceries, offering a ride, helping at home, or making virtual social connections. In the application we announce today, we bring the same functionality to any organisation that wishes to deploy it.
Organisations can request, deploy, and configure the COVID-19 Response application in as little as two hours. They do not have to be Appian customers to use this application, and no Appian expertise is required. Organisations implementing the application are given access to Appian’s COVID-19 Application Desk for assistance. When they call, we will walk them through the setup process until the application is up and running. This service, like the software, is offered at no charge.
Appian is being used by Global 2000 organisations in financial services, pharma, manufacturing, and other industries to manage their COVID-19 response. Appian software helps these organisations move quickly, adapt to change, and coordinate a disparate workforce — exactly what’s needed now.
“Centralising accurate information about our people, where they are, and what they might need, and reaching our whole community is key to coordinating our organisation during crises,” said Sidney Fernandes, CIO, University of South Florida. “During the hurricane season of 2018, Appian helped us build and deploy an application for tracking our 50,000-student community in just one day. We use it to ensure the safety of our students and faculty during all crises.”
Qualifying organisations of 1,000 employees or more that would like to use Appian’s COVID-19 Response Management application can sign up for access at www.appian.com/covid-19-response-management.
