Visitech, an IT company from the Russian Far East, presents its AntiPandemia package of solutions to the President
9 July 2020 – Visitech, a portfolio company of the Far East High Technology Fund based in South Sakhalin, has presented its developments intended to counter the coronavirus pandemic – the AntiPandemia package for industrial enterprises – to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The developments were presented under the auspices of the Supervisory Board of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives to Promote New Projects (ASI) headed by the President. Vladimir Putin commended the innovation: “Appealing, practicable, and promising,” he said.
The AntiPandemia IT package recently developed by the company makes it possible for the enterprise to obtain real-time data on production processes and respond promptly while monitoring occupational health – employees’ body temperature and social distancing. Should any person contract the disease, the package will trace the infected person’s contacts and all of his / her locations for the sake of additional disinfection. Back in 2019, with a view to developing its innovative solutions, the company attracted 100 mln roubles from the Far East High Technology Fund that was established to support hi-tech business in the Russian Far East under the instructions of Vladimir Putin and Yuri Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.
Rustam Milanov, a founder of the company, demonstrated one of the new IT solution components – the tracker map making it possible to monitor compliance with the social distancing requirement – to the head of state.
“This is the employee’s digital passport that retains access to the database of personal data important to the employer starting from the employee’s medical examinations, permits, and proficiency up to access rights for specific areas. Furthermore, this is a tracker capable of operating for 4 months on a single charge and making it possible to track the employee’s location on the site in real time. Finally, this is a master key for doors, equipment, and vehicles and a perfect digital signature tool. It may even be used to pay for food in the canteen. In addition, it has an integrated confirmation and SOS button,” Rustam Milanov said.
It is planned to issue such maps to each employee of the enterprises ordering the IT solution from the Sakhalin-based company. Apart from serving as the employee’s digital passport, AntiPandemia includes a digital map of the production facility, video analytics, and state-of-the-art accounting systems using machine learning algorithms.
Visitech has been engaged in the development of software products in the area of industrial and occupational safety and operational excellence since 2015, and at present, it cooperates with such major companies as Novolipetsk Steel, Glencore, Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works,
Gazprom Neft, etc. “Currently, 150,000 people use our software products, both in Russia and abroad,” Rustam Milanov told the President noting that the company has upgraded its system repeatedly by integrating multiple innovative solutions.
AntiPandemia is based on the staff monitoring system originally developed by Visitech for Messoyakhaneftegaz – a joint hi-tech project by Russia’s major oil companies – Gazprom Neft and Rosneft: this is a unique project with a tracking area twice as big as the area of Moscow and change in temperature of down to -50oС.
According to Visitech CEO, the company is currently planning to implement AntiPandemia in such companies as T Plus and Rusagro and engage in cooperation with the Sakhalin Region government.
