Extra•Ordinary Conversations is a series of dialogues that aims to provide a platform for discussion and catalysis of partnerships towards inclusion of marginalised communities. The inaugural seminar took place virtually on Friday, 14 May 2021, with the theme “Co-solutioning for an Inclusive Society”. Mr Eric Chua, Parliamentary Secretary for Social and Family Development, graced the event as Guest-of-Honour, while a distinguished panel of speakers contributed insightful thoughts towards the topic.
The event also debuted “SpotOn Inclusive”, a smart thermal imaging system, and “Litehaus”, an integrated visitor management solution. These solutions, developed and brought to market by multi-sector partners including the Government Technology Agency (GovTech), Embrio Enterprises Pte Ltd and Extra•Ordinary People, aim to build partnerships and foster a more inclusive society.
The modular assembly of “SpotOn Inclusive” and “Litehaus” has created work opportunities for persons with special needs as well as low-income persons. In a typical round of assembly, the “SpotOn Inclusive” device is put together by clients of MINDS Idea Employment Development Centre, before being built into “Litehaus” units by low-income persons identified by ground partners.
During the event, Extra•Ordinary People committed to donating one “Litehaus” visitor management system to all 19 Special Education (SPED) schools in Singapore.
Visit Litehaus webpage to find out more about our smart Visitor Management System (VMS) integrated with contact tracing features. It speeds up the check-in process and reduces the manpower needed for the building management teams significantly.
