Whether you have a storefront, warehouse, or corporate office, if your business welcomes many visitors daily, it can be challenging to track their records manually. Therefore, implementing an effective visitor management system should be a high priority. Visitor management software can help you track visitor data and ensure the safety of employees and visitors while enhancing overall productivity. Our experts offer these ways to implement visitor management software effectively.
A visitor management system is the first point of interaction for visitors to your facility. That makes it critical for their experience to be user-friendly. Choose a system with a user interface that can be easily customized and provides ease of use to your guests. It should never take more than 20 seconds for your visitors to check-in for optimal results.
It is crucial to print photo badges for your visitors from a security standpoint. Doing so will help security confirm that the person wearing the badge is the same person who checked in. In addition, you will always have a visual record of anyone entering your facility.
Your visitor management software should automatically alert key staff members when a new visitor arrives in your facility. In addition, if a staff member is out sick or fails to cancel a meeting, other staff should have access to this information through your messaging system.
Your visitor logs should offer an accurate record of anyone inside your facility. If there is an emergency requiring building evacuation, accurate visitor logs will help to ensure successful tracking. The need for precise tracking makes it crucial to mandate check-out to leave your facility.
Your organization should regularly analyze visitor data to determine areas where you can improve the visitor experience. For example, you can explore your records to determine whether appointments are scheduled effectively or if they are going past their scheduled time. In addition, you can confirm if FedEx is making multiple pickups that may make more sense to combine into one shared pickup. Analyzing these elements about your operations through recorded visitor data will help eliminate organization loopholes that affect productivity.
Today, many organizations have visitors sign NDAs and other legal documents to protect confidential information from getting into the wrong hands. Your visitors’ first interaction with your facility happens in the reception area, where your staff welcomes guests and helps them with the check-in process. Check-in is the perfect opportunity to have them sign any required legal documents, like an NDA. The sooner this document is signed, the better. This will keep your legal documents safe on the cloud, where you can find them when you need them instead of searching for paper copies. In addition, a visitor will not make it past reception if they refuse to sign the legal document.
