Software solutions provider DeCurtis Corp. hired Matt Winans as VP safety & security.

DeCurtis Shield

'The response to our announcement of DeCurtis Shield as an addition to the DeCurtis Experience Platform (DXP) has been nothing short of amazing,' said Derek Fournier, president, DeCurtis Corp. 'We needed to take swift action during these challenging times to help our clients reopen their businesses with enhancements to their safety and security. Mr. Winans is a critical addition to our leadership team, and we trust him to lead this charge.'

Facial recognition and thermal imaging

DeCurtis Shield is part of a suite that collects basic health information through facial recognition and thermal imaging to assess temperature via standalone kiosks. When integrated with the DXP, that health data can be layered on in a secure fashion to enable proactive measures in the event of potential illness.

When deployed in an environment enabled with the DXP Location Solution, Shield can provide both real-time and historical indoor location timelines to address potential outbreaks, assess risks from known interactions and strategically plan for cleaning protocols.
