Many entrepreneurs are struggling with various doubts about how to deal with the directives for the resumption of work in the catering and hospitality sector. "Who should measure the body temperature of the customers?" or "How to not go crazy every month to buy masks and disinfectant gel?".
The answer to these problems comes from Wikifriend, who has launched a thermoscanner that also includes the people counting system. In addition to measuring fever, this product includes other features developed specifically to address phase two of the pandemic caused by COVID-19.
In particular, it is possible to automatically perform those controls that would otherwise require the use of a dedicated resource, with all the problems related to health protection and costs for PPE (masks, gloves, disinfectant gels). Operations such as verifying the correct use of the mask and counting the flow of people within the premises will be carried out entirely by the device, as well as monitoring the body temperature of employees and customers, "our device, allows the measurement of body temperature in a totally automatic way" says Maria Krausch, head of marketing at Wikifriend.
Many Italian restaurateurs and hoteliers are really worried about how to manage the measurement of body temperature in the workplace. Among them is also Gina Casadei, owner of Il Veliero, a restaurant and bathing establishment in Fiumicino, who says: "The idea of having to ask my staff to measure the fever of my customers puts me in difficulty, as it is not their job".
With regard to privacy issues, Tony Buda, hotelier from Ostia who is one of the first entrepreneurs to install a thermal scanner in the reception of his hotel Bellavista, says: "Only the temperature of customers and employees is measured, there is no storage of personal data, just as there would be if the measurement were taken manually.
On the Italian market there are several automated solutions for the control of body temperature, Wikifriend company that operates in the field of artificial intelligence applied to healthcare, however, offers a complete solution for restaurants and hotels, providing together with the device a complete supply of PPE taking away the burden of finding everything necessary for entrepreneurs who will be able to face this period of recovery with more serenity.

Wikifriend has created a publisher bot that can understand and react to questions, not just do a "normal" search of chat words, but provide a valid tool for us working behind BUTAC and for you reading it. BUTAC is an Italian fake news platform which helps uncover misinformation, incorrect information or misleading news.
From today on Facebook comes a news for BUTAC, we will have a chatbot to respond to your reports. Everything happens thanks to the help kindly offered by Pascal Casadei and Maria Krausch, founders of Wikifriend.
For BUTAC it is a great help, given the number of reports of news already handled that arrive daily. Every time you send us a report of something you would have found in a few seconds using the search engines and the virtual assistant links you to it, it is a gain for us. With the new system everything should be faster and easier. Or at least that's what we hope.
