Visitor Management Systems in Nigeria: Everything You Need To Knowsbtelecoms
I have a few questions for you;
- How many visitors are in your office right now?
- How many did you have yesterday?
- How many of the names can you actually read or were typed incorrectly?
- How many visitors don’t have a time noted as to when they arrived?
- Who forgot to sign out? (Or are they still hiding somewhere in the office?)
- Was the sign-in or sign-out time that was recorded accurate?
- Do you know which employee each visitor met with?
If you struggled to answer these questions then you might need a visitor management system.
Visitor management systems play a vital role in monitoring and recording information regarding employees and visitors of a public building or a business electronically.
These systems also help in documenting and gathering information about the whereabouts of a visitor in the facility and now more than ever, in the wake of the pandemic, it is very important to safely document visitor activity in your premises.
Whatever form of business you are in, whether it is small medium or of a large scale, a visitor management system will definitely boost the safety and security of your organisation.
Just think for a while, a client is entering in your company and instead of filling the log book, you make them enter office premises by check-ins through an automated system.
What a different level of professional impression you will create!
What are Visitor Management Systems?
You might be used to welcoming and checking guests in and out of your building using a sign in sheet or notebook.
Although signing in is just a small percentage of the process.
There are other elements to consider as well; visitor safety and security, evacuation management, notifying employees that a visitor has arrived to see them and much more.
Using a visitor management system, all these parts can be easily managed/automated in one place, allowing your front desk officer time to attend to other duties.
A visitor management system is also referred to as a visitor management solution or visitor management software.
With this amazing software, all you’re required to do is download an app and install it into a tablet or device of your choice to keep at your front desk.
Smart, simple and professional!
