A Visitor Management System (VMS) is a digital machine designed to help you keep track of visitors entering and exiting your organisation. This fast and secure way automates your sign in process by replacing your paper sign in books/sheets.
A visitor, staff and contractor management system will integrate its software with door access control solutions like Paxton to give you peace of mind when it comes to your emergency roll call.
Why is a visitor management system important?
Entrée visitor management systems give you maximum control over your reception area and provide authorisation of your visitors. Each organisation has a responsibility of keeping its guests, staff and contractors safe. Entrée allows you as an organisation to strengthen your on-site compliance and security by storing your visitor information and data secure as well as giving you a real-time emergency fire evacuation list.
Having a visitor management system can be beneficial in detecting who was present and when. This information helps catch unauthorised individuals, especially in the event of a lawbreaking or security breach.
In addition, in today’s world with the importance of contact tracing for COVID-19 spread reduction and other infection control monitoring, these systems have become a vital part of contact tracing procedures.
Furthermore, unlike a manual sign in book/sheet/log that can be easily stolen, an entrée visitor system protects the information of every visitor. This is especially important as governments globally continue to reinforce data privacy regulations (such as the GDPR)
