Press Release


AUSTIN, TEXAS  — November 19, 2020 — Pennrose, a leader in multifamily development and management, has selected ReturnSafe, a mission-driven BioSecurity company focused on workplace health safety, to help keep Pennrose’s 400+ person workforce, across 10 states healthy and safe during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

“We are in a unique situation in that we have hundreds of employees that are working in our 130+ properties in nearly a dozen states so we wanted a solution that would be easy to roll out, simple to use and had a straightforward oversight process while giving our HR partners a platform to identify potential outbreak risks,” said John DeSantis, Vice President of Technology at Pennrose. “After researching several potential solutions, we chose ReturnSafe to automate our screening and contact tracing efforts for both our corporate office as well as across our developments across the country. The seamless integration with a single sign-on solution for our employees to access and check-in daily was a critical component and one that the ReturnSafe team was able to deliver.”

Pennrose employees use ReturnSafe’s BioSecurity app to conduct daily health screening and contact logging, a scalable solution that eliminates the slow and inefficient paper-based system previously put in place. To learn more, click to read the Pennrose case study.

“Too often we see businesses attempt to implement daily screening and contact tracing management of COVID-19 in their communities by having employees – and even visitors – sign paper waivers and complete paper-based symptom surveys. Not only is that format an ineffective way to monitor a community for signs and symptoms but it does not provide organizations with the speed or tools they need to react to potential outbreaks and infections,” said Tarun Nimmagadda, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ReturnSafe. “ReturnSafe’s BioSecurity Platform integrates daily health screening status via our app with automated contact tracing and administrator tools to help case manage potential outbreaks. This screen, test, and trace solution is what prevents one infection from turning into hundreds of infections.” 

The ReturnSafe BioSecurity Platform offers organizations an integrated solution that slows the spread of infectious diseases by implementing critical daily screening with a symptoms diary and recommendations governed by HR policies; testing data management for quick notification of a positive test; and Bluetooth contact-tracing via smartphone and hardware wearables at the workplace including a built-in social distancing alarm.
