Mobile-ready low-code solution supports health and safety for automaker’s offices across the U.S.

McLean, VA  – Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) today announced that Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is using Appian’s Workforce Safety solution to automate the process of helping manage the safe and healthy return of the majority of its U.S. workforce to the workplace in phases, and in accordance with local health conditions. The solution, built on the Appian Low-code Automation Platform, enables Volkswagen to manage the complexities of the workplace return, including prioritizing workforce health and workplace safety.

Volkswagen Group of America is the North American operational headquarters and a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG (FWB: VOW), one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers and the largest carmaker in Europe. The company, which includes the Volkswagen, Audi, Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Ducati brands, as well as Volkswagen Credit, has approximately 8,000 employees in the United States and sells its vehicles through a 1,000-strong dealer network.

Volkswagen needed a comprehensive mobile solution that could be up-and-running quickly, and that was easily configurable. The Workforce Safety solution, hosted in Appian’s HIPAA-compliant and HiTRUST-certified cloud, provides Volkswagen a fully integrated solution with a central command center to monitor the health and work status of its employees across all locations in real-time. The solution’s Mobile Pass feature uses fast, easy, and self-reported employee health screening to automatically and intelligently generate “safe to return” designations that are displayed on an employee’s mobile device. Complete case management capabilities enable contact tracing and fast resolution of exceptions and appeals.
