Welcome to ASK
What is ASK?
As schools work to manage the safe return of in-person activities, they are experiencing the burden of collecting a significant amount of new data and validating users daily. ASK, ITC’s new “Automated Service Kiosk”, originated from a customers need to greet people as they enter a campus building and provide quick and secure validation of their COVID status.
By using the campus’ existing credentialing system, ASK can efficiently interface with systems on campus to confirm vaccination status, completion of a daily COVID questionnaire, business on campus within a specified timeframe, and that the user is active in the system.
ASK supports NFC (i.e., mobile, card, wearable), barcode, and mag swipe cards. All people entering a building are greeted by ASK. Within seconds of the user presenting their credential, ASK verifies their status using data stored in your Campus OneCard, SIS or ERP system, as well as any applicable daily COVID screening questionnaire. If the user meets all established requirements, they are given approval to enter the facility, and if not, the user will be directed to see security.
With the option to add WiFi or cellular capabilities, the kiosk can be moved seamlessly around campus.
When combined with the companion ASK Security Monitor, campus security personnel can observe many ASK stations in real-time from one screen. This allows for a reduction in resources required to manage access points and will provide personnel with immediate feedback related to failed verifications. How does it work?
In addition to meeting the needs required for complex COVID screening, ASK is an efficient way for office towers to validate tenants upon entering the building, allowing one security desk to monitor many entrances. It is capable of quickly verifying a large number of entrants against any data-based requirement with minimal staff overseeing the process. What else can it do?
