Helping essential financial centers stay open safely.


The following case study showcases the numerous benefits experienced by City National Bank’s 32 branches, after utilizing the AlertTrace System.

As the U.S. economy navigates these uncertain times, banks are needed now more than ever to help maintain a sense of safety and assurance to those in economic need. America’s banking industry remains a powerful, reliable drive for employment, economic stimulation and income. Assuring that the workforce behind this essential industry has been an honor for AlertTrace, as we strive to provide banking personnel with safety and peace of mind.

City National Bank has benefited exponentially from AlertTrace’s anonymized, accurate and scalable contact tracing. At slightly larger than a U.S. quarter, AlertTrace wearables are ruggedized Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices that actively detect other wearables within a customized range and register it as a contact. This data ensures the quick and accurate notification of those most at risk after a positive infectious disease test. AlertTrace enables a safer workforce, keeping employees who have not been exposed in the office, while allowing for strategic quarantine of only the necessary few.

A recent case study with City National found that not only was the AlertTrace System and immense time saver for upper management, helping them maintain safety and health protocols with digital solutions, but it also kept cases of COVID-19 from spreading to other employees and branches. Other noted benefits for improved employee morale, and discovery of future applications beyond COVID, for which this essential industry could benefit.

Prior to the 2020/2021 flu season, which may have been dampened by the extensive protocol in place nationwide to prevent COVID-19 spread, businesses have historically faced $15.4 billion in lost productivity due to influenza. Being able to maintain a healthy workforce is crucial, and proactively promoting prevention of disease spread will benefit all involved. City National wants to be prepared for whatever is next. As the AlertTrace wearable Mini becomes indispensable to the team, CNB looks to move from their traditional badge system to utilizing the Mini for ID, operations analytics, and additional safety features.

Manufactured and developed in the United States, AlertTrace was designed with tracing in mind, mitigating the spread of infectious disease while maintaining security. With encrypted, anonymous data, no personally identifiable information is involved. Leveraging optimized Bluetooth instead of GPS, AlertTrace wearables seamlessly gather contact tracing information without collecting location tracking data.
