Exela Technologies Launches ‘Contactless Entry and Exit’ System that Supports Evolving Business Needs in the New Normal

Cloud-enabled technology tracks employee time and location through non-contact identification badge and application

IRVING, Texas, September 17, 2020 – Exela Technologies, Inc. (“Exela”) (NASDAQ: XELA) today announced that it has launched its Contactless Entry and Exit (“Contactless EE”) system to help manage the growing mobile workforce, in addition to onsite personnel. Contactless EE is enabled by a seamless reporting dashboard with analytics for managers and HR professionals to improve operational transparency and compliance, and supports social distancing protocols.

The system is powered by easy-to-install software and can function as a standalone system, integrate seamlessly into existing payroll platforms, or operate as a core component of Exela’s broader human capital management platform. Contactless EE is comprised of a sensor module, including an employee badge system and contactless card reader, and time-reporting software. The system is compatible with desktop and mobile devices to track an employee’s location and clock-in/clock-out times, whether onsite or offsite, and the data collected is cloud-hosted and accessible manually or integrated directly into payroll systems using Exela RPA technology.

“Exela’s Contactless EE system offers a better user experience, improved visibility into personnel status, and consolidation between payroll and timekeeping systems that might otherwise be disconnected,” said Mark Fairchild, President, Exela Smart Office. “The inclusion of the app makes Contactless EE particularly well-suited for the growing remote workforce.”

Contactless EE is a part of Exela’s Work-from-Anywhere (“WFA”) suite, which includes Digital Mailroom, DrySign e-signatures, workflow automation tools, on-demand print solutions, and more. Future releases of Contactless EE are planned that will provide longer-range badge tracking, removing the need for any interaction with a card reader and enabling enhanced functionality that supports stricter social distancing enforcement, contact tracing, and employee location monitoring during emergencies.

Contactless EE is already in use by the majority of Exela’s mobile and office-based workforce in the Americas and Europe. The internal rollout of Contactless EE began in May, 2020, and will continue with the onboarding of the remainder of the Americas, EMEA and APAC workforce planned by the end of the year.
