4 Reasons for a Visitor Identification System

by david 28. September 2011 08:52

When it comes to building security, most organizations take precautionary measures to ensure that both their people and their property are protected. However, we recently conducted a survey that found 46% of organizations don’t identify building visitors, and 34% don’t track building visitors.

Today, visitor identification is a no-brainer. Regardless of organization size, identifying visitors is an important and simple method which safe guards your people. Having a working knowledge of the visitors in your building is a simple safety measure that can make a big difference in times of crisis.

IDville Visitor Identification SolutionsTo ensure your organization and people are protected, equip your organization with the hassle-free visitor system that fits the needs of your organization.

 If you’re a small organization with visitors few and far between… Outfit your front desk with Rewriteable Visitor PVC cards . Visitors can write their name on the badge when they enter the building and wear the ID for the duration of the stay. Your visitors will be clearly identified, and staff will be able to easily greet visitors with a personal ‘hello.’

 If visitors must receive vehicle access to an area… Keeping a concise record of visitors and clearly identifying visiting cars can make a difference in effective building security. Record visitor information in a log-in book and use hang tags to clearly identify vehicles.

 If you want to track building visitors…  Implement a log-in book system  to maintain records of all building visitors. Visitors simply sign the book when entering the building. Your log-in book  will help you to better understand the number of visitors you receive each month, and can help you justify a more comprehensive visitor system.

 If you want to protect the privacy of your visitors… Visitor log books are a popular way to track building visitors, however they have little discretion. To keep visitor information confidential, try a Secure Log-In System . This system, hides the previous visitor’s information, tracks visitor activity and creates wearable visitor badges all at once.

Implement Student ID Cards for Safer Schools

by david 14. September 2011 09:56
Do you know if your kids are safe at school? Schools today are taking security more seriously than ever, and student ID card programs have become a growing trend to keep schools and their students safe. A student ID card program outfits each student with an ID card or badge that must be worn every day at school.
Student ID cards are a simple and effective security solution because they provide instant visual identification of each student and a quick way to determine if a student belongs in the building. Student ID cards are especially helpful at the beginning of the school year when the student’s picture and name are visible to help teachers and staff learn names quickly.
Using student ID cards can be simple, and its benefits will make everyone in the school district happy. To start a program that meets your school’s needs, follow these guidelines:
Create Student ID Cards
1. Find the ID card system that’s right for you. Identification systems allow you to take control of identification by designing and printing your own ID cards onsite. To find the system that’s right for you, use a user-friendly system selection guide like the IDville System Information Guide.
2. Make user-friendly software a priority. Equally important to the system you select is the software you use to create the student ID cards. The individual who uses the identification software in a school is often an administrative assistant or staff member. View a demo or tutorial of the software before buying to make sure it will be easy for this person to use.
3. Have fun with identification! Student ID cards are an important part to a security program, but they can also be fun for students. Promote school spirit by customizing your identification cards with the school mascot and outfitting students with custom lanyards. Make students excited about their ID cards, and your program is bound to be a success.
