Any security firm will tell you that visitor safety is a two way street. Not only do companies need to protect the safety of visitors on their premises, but they also need to protect their company from visitors with hidden agendas. In the past, seeing to the safety of visitors was usually delegated to security staff, but new innovations have taken a huge amount of the burden off their shoulders. Visitor management systems and proprietary visitor management software have provided innovative ways to protect visitors and the company all at the same time.
An Overview of Visitor Safety Systems
Briefly, a Visitor Management System is a computer network within the company that logs visitors in when they reach the main entry. Sometimes the visitor is responsible for logging in through a user-friendly application set up at the front desk. Other times a staff member enters all the vital information so that every person in the building is accounted for at all times. As a side note, many companies also use Visitor Management Software to monitor all employees in the building as well.
