Tennessee-based Q Ideas hosts live events that convene leaders for insightful conversations about current issues at the intersection of faith and culture.

In home_page, Image, Product News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

Glory Star, the leading provider and manufacturer for commercial-grade tablet solutions, is helping businesses and organizations safely reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic with its popular self-service solution, the patent-pending TAURI Temperature Check Tablet. Designed to screen people noninvasively when entering healthcare, manufacturing or government facilities, hotels, restaurants, conference centers, retail stores, schools, and gyms, TAURI is a touch-free, highly accurate, quick, and private temperature check and messaging system in one tablet.

“In response to COVID-19, businesses and organizations are grappling with choosing temperature check products that don’t induce anxiety or put people at greater risk of exposure,” said Cindy Cheung, chief operating officer of Glory Star. “The idea for TAURI came to us after going out to eat and realizing how threatening gun-style readers are when they’re aimed at you. They also require extremely close contact with the operator. Because people are accustomed to tablets in their daily lives, TAURI makes temperature screening a more positive, calm, and familiar experience. Patrons only have to stand in front of it momentarily to have their temperature taken. It’s more welcoming and doesn’t require additional staff to operate it.”
