To assist customers, we are automatically deferring all repayments on eligible BetterBusiness Loans and Equipment loans (Chattel Mortgage) for qualifying customers with total commercial lending limits with CommBank of up to $5 million.

How has this been communicated?
All eligible BetterBusiness Loan and Equipment loan (Chattel Mortgage) customers have been or will be sent an Electronic Digital Message (eDM) to their recorded email address explaining the deferment.

Lifestylepanel has developed a precision tracking system (LSPTRAK) that can track and analyse the movement of individuals or objects within 30 – 50cm of their actual locations within multi-storey buildings.
This has application to hotels, hospitals, aged care facilities, stadiums, commercial properties or any other business that wishes to track movement within a facility.
The individual or object being tracked can be registered via smartphone handset or an array of low-cost Bluetooth (BLE) beacons. The system does not require expensive networking and is easily deployed within days.
LSPTRAK creates a Bluetooth network which has demonstrated advantages in deployment (in addition to cost, speed and deployment) over alternative technologies including RFID, 3G/4G/5G, Sigfox and LoraWan.
LSPTRAK is compelling for any organisation wishing to manage the transmission of COVID-19. This is because LSPTRAK tracks registered users through 3-Dimensional structures with precision and provides an analytics platform that allows facility operators to:
- Efficiently contact trace COVID-19 infections limiting the quarantining to the affected individuals and area within a structure;
- Provide an compliance audit trail that hygiene procedures have been systematically followed;
- Monitor and implement traffic flow solutions to manage transmission risk.
In dealing with the ongoing challenges posed by COVID-19, LSPTRAK has an important role to play in rebuilding the confidence of an organisation’s stakeholders and managing the permanent behavioural changes which will be expected in the management of facilities.
Additional benefits of LSPTRAK include:
- Safety - precise location and movement of individuals who trigger a duress alarm;
- Security - geofencing means that the system can alert managers when a perimeter is breached;
- Duty of care and service compliance of multiple operators;
- Geo-marketing or other information alerts to registered users.
