Successive Technologies Makes a Big Contribution to the Fight Against COVID-19

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

The basic idea behind this process is to keep a track of the details of all those who have come in contact with an infected person. Governments emphasize contact tracing so that timely decisions can be taken and these people can be self-quarantined.

In the context of COVID-19, taking immediate action can help flatten the curve and prevent community spread when social distancing is relaxed. Successive Technologies believes that digital contact tracing can be extremely useful in breaking the chain of transmission due to the surge in the number of cases.

“We have built a contact tracing application to ensure our employees’ safety. Our mission with the app is to track high-risk and asymptomatic people so that they can be tested for the disease on priority,” said Sid Pandey, the CEO of Successive Technologies.

The underlying principle of this app is that if two mobile phones can connect to each other via Bluetooth, the users are close enough to transmit the virus among themselves. Successive has built the application such that it is triggered as soon as this happens and records information about location, time, and participants involved in the interaction.

They plan to deploy the app within the organization and also collaborate with state and national health departments to take appropriate steps once they receive information about those who have come in contact with a COVID-positive person. This will make testing more convenient and enable the authorities to offer support during the quarantine.

Businesses, in particular, need internal apps to automate contact tracing to make better, smarter and most importantly, faster decisions since public apps do not suffice in this regard. During this pandemic, ensuring employees’ safety is of utmost importance and thus, contact tracing is essential to every company.

With features like easy on-boarding, self-assessment forms for the risk determination, COVID updates and navigation bar, the application is an easy-to-use tool that offers all-round support. “We are focusing on making it as user-friendly as possible since this app requires a high degree of uptake to be successful. We have also kept data privacy and security in mind since this might be a concern for users,” said Mark Bavisotto, Head of North America’s Business Unit for Successive Technologies.

The only information that is exchanged between mobile phones is an anonymous random key when the devices are within 10 meters from each other. “We will not even disclose the identity of the person who has tested positive. Those who have been in contact with an infected person will receive a notification on the app. They could be friends or strangers in the metro or even co-workers,” said Sid.

“We are confident that it will help countries control the disease as restrictions are eased. We hope that vaccines come up soon but until then, this app will help support health systems and control the pandemic,” said Mark.

Successive Technologies Makes a BIG Announcement on Appraisals, Bonuses and Hiring

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

COVID-19 has had serious implications on business, the workforce, and the economy. With deals worth $3-4 billion suspended within March alone in the IT industry, many companies were forced to halt pay hikes and promotions.​ However, over 300 employees at Successive Technologies were considered for appraisals, bonuses, and promotions even during the nationwide lockdown. This leading technology services provider hired 35+ people in the last three months; a time during which most enterprises withdrew their job offers.

Successive Technologies has an engaging, employee-centric culture. This is reflected in the fact that a poll was created to take employees’ opinions on the appraisals policy during the coronavirus pandemic. Approximately 85% of the respondents stated that they are happy with the company’s decision to organize the performance appraisal process in phases. The idea was to consider junior and mid-level employees first and then the rest based on the budgetary allowance so that salary cuts can be avoided in difficult times.

The company also announced that it would offer 100% variable pay to all its members for their impeccable performance in the last year. A few team members expressed their sincere gratitude towards the organization for taking this step on social media.

Since mid-March, Successive has had over 25 project releases and has managed to sign a big contract from a multi-billion dollar U.S.-based company. With existing clients continuing to give more business and sales teams trying hard for new accounts, the company attributes its success to its hard-working and dedicated team members.

Sid Pandey, the CEO of Successive Technologies, said, “We will keep revising our policies as the situation evolves. We value our people more than anything and really care about their overall wellbeing. We need to keep the people above profits. This is the time where we need to help our people and clients rather than worrying about profits. We will also take initiatives to build a safe working environment for them.” The company will take all necessary steps for prevention and, therefore, sanitizer dispensers, fumigation machines, pulse oximeters, and infrared thermometers will be made available to maintain safety at the workplace, whenever Successive reopens. The company has prepared an effective business continuity and disaster recovery plan and restructured its financial models to deal with the impact of COVID-19.
