What we are doing to slow the spread of Coronavirus

As the world rallies to cope with the unprecedented impact of Coronavirus, we hope that you, your family, your coworkers and your community are healthy and staying safe by following the guidance of your local officials. As a society, we must employ our inventiveness and follow the advice of healthcare professionals, including social distancing guidelines, to minimize the negative impact of this crisis.

At Smartmatic we are using our technological expertise to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus and to ensure that business and government can continue operations. We are focused on our core strengths in three areas:

Elections

The coronavirus crisis challenges democratic institutions to remain stable and productive by continuing serving the electorate. But this requires innovative approaches to both public elections and to votes within governmental bodies on proposed measures – the everyday business of government.

That’s why Smartmatic offers several options to ensure election continuity, such as remote voting channels and support services to assist election officials with safe in-person voting that does not put the health and safety of voters and poll workers at risk. Find more information on our web sites:

Bringing the ballot to the voter

When in-person voting is not an option, we bring the ballot to the voter with our remote voting platform. The platform is flexible to meet the particular needs of any voting jurisdiction with online authentication, online ballot delivery, onscreen marking, printing, manual return, electronic return and online voting.  

Our online voting system is the gold standard. It’s been proven in Estonia for more than a decade. It was also successfully used in the 2016 Utah Republican caucus and in Norway and Chile.

This solution allows voters to cast ballots on their tablets or smartphones without ever entering a polling place, so they can maintain social distancing. You can learn more about our secure online voting platform here.

Mitigating health risks in polling places

COVID-19 poses many challenges to in-person voting. We realize that information on these challenges is often conflicting and sometimes overwhelming. Smartmatic’s support team can assist you with cleaning best practices, staffing for poll worker positions, poll worker training and disinfection services at polling places and warehouse facilities.

Vote-by-mail products and services

We also support jurisdictions looking to expand vote-by-mail (VBM) processes with the product and services they need to transition smoothly. For election officials that tabulate ballots at centralized locations, we offer a line of high-speed, high-volume central scanners and the logistical services to securely transport ballots from polling stations to processing.  

Logistics and Support Services

In this difficult time, election officials need to make drastic process changes quickly. We have an entire division dedicated to logistics and support services to help jurisdictions with change management and implementation.

Health

Fighting this invisible enemy requires the dedication of untold numbers of medical professionals, first responders, and countless others engaged in supply chain and delivery. We are thankful for their sacrifices. To support these professionals, we are working to create safer environments and workspaces.

Identity ecosystem to register and track patients

We provide health and law enforcement institutions with an innovative solution to monitor COVID-19 patients and potential patients.

Closely following the evolution of patients and their contacts is critical to combat the spread of this pandemic. We offer a comprehensive solution to register and track both patients with suspected and proven COVID-19.

Our identity ecosystem leverages biometric and mobile technologies to put in the hands of decision-makers the information they need to act timely and stay in control.

Global Sourcing and manufacturing support of mission critical items

We operate in 40 countries and our core business is the delivery of mission-critical solutions. This has allowed us to establish an impressive supply-chain organization and strong manufacturing capabilities. We have refocused them during this pandemic and found partners to manufacture two critical items: 1. N95/FFP2/KN95 face masks and 2. Ventilators.

Business Continuity

Despite this crisis, there are essential functions and services that must continue. Smartmatic can help ensure these activities are as safe as possible for those who must continue to travel and be in public places for the good of all. As we reactivate society to normal functions, it would be very important to reduce exposure to the virus.
