9 April 2020– (LONDON) As cases of COVID-19 continue to soar, the pressure on logistics and transport businesses providing vital frontline delivery and collection services, along with the guidance surrounding social distancing, shows no signs of letting up.  As a result, more and more of these organisations are relying upon technology to keep their key workers, drivers and home-based office staff informed, as well as to continue to communicate and collaborate. 

Ensuring continuity with health and safety procedures and updated policies during what is proving to be a volatile time is a challenge for the transportation sector. To support these workforces across the country, employee software firm Eko, (www.ekoapp.com) is offering its platform for free, to help enhance productivity and community across various logistics businesses during the peak of the outbreak.

Korawad Chearavanont, CEO at Eko explains: “It’s always been part of our core mission to provide the right working tools to make the workplace engaging and efficient for employees working remotely or in multiple locations. Logistics businesses are under immense pressure right now with many frontline delivery drivers on the roads, keeping essential services running, so anything we can do to help those workforces to stay connected and to feel safe and informed within their communities is hugely important”.

The real-time Eko app will keep all transport staff connected, productive, and engaged during pressurised situations and access to the platform will be offered to all logistics operators free of charge*, without obligation. The virtual workspace is accessible on both mobile and desktop, keeping all staff connected whenever and wherever, using an intuitive and familiar tool that helps recreate the inclusive community atmosphere of a physical presence even while workers are out on the road and physically separated for extended periods of time.

The free-to-use platform includes features such as Broadcast, which will help logistics businesses to maintain a clear and transparent line of communications to all staff with team-wide announcements, including advice from managers to help reduce anxiety or prevent misinformation.  Also included is Banner, which will highlight new, key virus information to all home-based staff and drivers on the move, as soon as they open the app.

The Chat feature will also help staff stay connected in real-time, ensuring teams remain in the loop throughout the period.  The Cards feature enables teams to work on projects and documents together in real-time with checklists and attachments. Finally, the platform includes a Library to centralise health and safety guidelines and information on self-quarantine, health insurance, travel policies etc.  All of this is also easy to access and update.
