Palmers launch online 'check in' system ahead of pubs reopening

A Bridport brewery have launched a new check-in service for customers using their pubs.

Government guidelines require drinkers to leave their contact details. 

Palmers have updated their website so customers can either enter their details online or 'check in' by scanning a QR code at the door.

The form asks for your first and last name, email address, phone number and which pub you are going to.

Details will only be stored for 21 days and will be accessed if they are requested by the NHS 'Test and Trace' team.

It takes less than a minute to fill out and personal details will not be used for marketing purposes.

Tenanted Trace Director Jim Jones said: 

"It was clear from reading the guidelines that pubs across the country would collectively be scratching their heads and trying to come up with a solution that was easy to implement, quick to use and able to cope with the tricky data protection requirements that we have in the UK."

"With the help of our digital partners, Key Digital Agency in Dorchester less than a day to have everything up and running, which Is quite staggering given the scale of the problem. I have been overwhelmed with the generous feedback from our licensees to our quick and inventive solution.

"It looked like a potentially big banana skin to start with…let's remember that the government itself has just admitted defeat with its £12 million test and trace app, so to come up with a fully operational fix in such a short space of time is staggering really."
