As the economy starts to reopen and organizations look to return to work, it’s essential that businesses do so responsibly and safely to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 virus. An important way to ensure a safe place to work is to give organizations immediate and ongoing visibility into employee health status and an easy way to manage the flow of employees back to the office.
That’s why TIBCO LABS™, our own innovation research group that is focused on applying emerging technologies to today’s business problems, has fast-tracked the deployment of a symptom tracking solution, TIBCO GatherSmart™. The GatherSmart solution is designed to help organizations monitor and regularly check on personnel’s health and readiness for coming into the office. It supports immediate visibility into employee status and enables the safe return of personnel to the office.
Leveraging the powerful TIBCO Connected Intelligence platform and the innovative, technical resources of TIBCO LABS, the GatherSmart™ solution provides a safe, easy-to-use tool for all types and sizes of organizations.

Part of the #TIBCO4Good Initiative
GatherSmart is a part of our wider TIBCO4Good mission aimed at contributing our expertise and technology to help communities solve meaningful human challenges with a data-centric approach. GatherSmart grew alongside the amazing efforts of our data science team who began working on a series of dashboards to support communities managing the spread of COVID-19 with actionable insights and deep analytic capabilities back in March. They built a Visual Analytics Hub to help visualize the progress and effects of local interventions. Many groups have used this resource in the fight against COVID-19.
Designed to help employers manage the challenges that come with transitioning back to work, GatherSmart is:
- Safe and simple to use
- Available across multiple mobile devices
- Frictionless to install
- Single source of truth to safely manage personnel access to work sites
- Not-for-profit solution
Here’s a breakdown of the different components of the solution:
- Smart Mobile App: The employee mobile app provides a quick, simple way for organizations to assess the readiness of employees to return to the workplace. With a daily health survey form, predetermined by the employer and in compliance with HR policies and privacy standards, employees report their symptoms and receive guidance on whether to work from home or go into the office. If they are given a green light to return to the office, employees will receive a daily digital passport to be scanned on entrance.
- Employer Control Center: HR and other personnel departments of the employer can use the TIBCO GatherSmart control center to manage access to different offices. Drawing from up-to-date survey data and other analytics, this single dashboard creates a comprehensive view of employees’ status with regional context and allows for quick and easy monitoring and management of personnel.
In alignment with this mission, we are excited to announce that the GatherSmart solution will be free to companies with less than 50 employees and sold at cost to others. We know this affordable solution, in combination with other public safety and government initiatives, will help us all transition safely and responsibly back to work.
