SMHCC’s contact tracing technology receives citation

    Designed with a user-friendly interface, the technology works on any platform, browser, and any type of mobile phone.

    Driven by a culture of quality and safety, SMHCC properties across the country use a contact tracing technology, which has recently been regarded by the National Privacy Commission as a best practice in handling contact tracing data in the country.

    A brainchild of Eric Uy, SMHCC Vice-President for Technical Services, he stressed that “the thrust of the platform calls for an appeal to guests’ sense of civic duty.”

    After a successful pilot in SM properties, including SMHCC, the same technology is now being used by SM Supermalls, one of Southeast Asia’s biggest developers and operator of malls in the Philippines.

    With this type of versatility and universal adaptability, it does not also come as a surprise that even government entities and some healthcare institutions patterned their respective contact tracing initiatives after this SMHCC-developed software.

    Inspired by a continued sense of purpose and innovation, SMHCC is humbled to have been an instrument in providing a contact tracing initiative that may easily be adapted by institutions, which contribute to the government’s ongoing efforts to fight COVID-19.
