Don’t struggle with visitor management - We’ve got the answers

Friday, 7th April, 2017

Do you really know who is on your premises or campus at any given time? Would you struggle to manage visitors during an emergency? Sadly security is now crucial to all business types and sizes and a multi-layered approach is the best way to make sure you are achieving a high level of security that protects but isn’t detrimental to the day to day running of your business.

You may already have an access control solution in place, controlling key entry points and possibly some internal doors/areas, taking a multi-layered approach would mean adding to this a visitor management system. Visitors can be a weak area in building security giving undesirables or opportunists the chance to go undetected. It’s important that you are in complete control of managing visitors so you know who is in your buildings at all times. Not all your visitors can, in advance of their arrival, receive a costly ID card which is associated with your access control solution, so a visitor solution makes the management of visitors more controllable, not only improving site security but making visitors feel instantly welcomed.

Using a visitor management system can successfully track traffic flow through your reception and enhance the security and safety your access control solution provides. It’s a great way to check visitors in/out and monitor visitors during open days, for contractors on site and for people arriving for meetings.  

With CardExchange™ Visitor Management visitors you can also pre-register via email and can choose to check in at a self-service kiosk. You have the option to categorise your visitors such as contractors, event attendee or cleaner giving you full control of where they are permitted to go, at what times and for how long.

CardExchange™ Visitor Management allows you to create a watch list, and if a visitor does arrive and is included on your watch list they would be flagged and unable to register for access and a receptionist would be able to alert security. To further increase security, in the event of an evacuation a one-click roll call report is available ensuring you are able to easily account for everyone on site.

Exceptional security is achieved by taking a multi-layered approach, giving you, your staff and your visitors’ peace of mind.
