Jupl is a leader in medical grade personal monitoring systems which comply with mandatory privacy regulations. It is responsible for ensuring that quarantined individuals are fitted with a non-removable wristband upon arrival during their home isolation.
The wrist strap is paired with a Jupl phone which connects to a cloud-based server monitoring someone’s movements 24/7.
If the person breaches their designated quarantine area or removes their wristband an alarm is automatically sent to MIQ security staff.
Travel Lab managing director Simon McKearney, says the company will utilise the Jupl technology that has never been applied to the NZ travel industry.
Travel Lab will organise all NZ home isolation travel arrangements from inbound bookings through to regional transfers to MBIE approved home isolation facilities.
‘Travel agents have been working for clients, trying to help them home through the MIQ system,’ he says
‘Many have been utilised for government contact tracing and Healthline work but it’s now time they were involved at an even greater level.’
Avery says the travel guardian concept took the market leading technology of Jupl into the travel industry to be alongside travellers when and where they needed help anywhere in the world. It has now been adapted to provide end to end guardianship.
McKearney says agents can make sure that prior to departure travellers have the correct and valid covid entry documents.
‘If they are wearing a Jupl watch they can track them globally and, if necessary, automatically reroute their travel plans and reschedule their home isolation booking accordingly.’
