When the pandemic hit, Sameday Testing CEO and Co-Founder Felix Huettenbach recognized the need for a simplified testing experience. The company’s innovative scheduling tool and software solutions, which were custom-built by four MIT software engineers, integrate with local laboratories and help clients easily view appointments at the testing center most convenient to them. The technology platform also streamlines the results process with automated alerts so clients can access their test results as soon as they are available.

“We must grow faster than the virus to beat it — this is our ethos,” said Sameday Testing COO and Co-Founder Max Oscar Oehme. “By focusing on speed, convenience and excellent customer service, we’ve been able to scale our operations to test thousands of people every day. Our partnership with Westfield is an integral next step to expanding access to fast, reliable COVID-19 testing.”

Sameday Testing’s labs also offer PCR tests with 3-day turnarounds and no out-of-pocket costs for clients with insurance coverage.

In time for the holiday season, Sameday Testing’s Westfield locations will open starting on Wednesday, Dec. 16, while the remaining testing centers will open by the end of 2020.

“Westfield remains committed to the wellbeing and vitality of our local communities,” said Colin Shaughnessy, Executive Vice President of U.S. Leasing at URW. “Through this partnership with Sameday Testing, our centers will continue to serve as a cornerstone of the community by providing access to a safe and convenient way to be tested for COVID-19.”
