Implementing a visitor management system doesn’t have to be complicated. With visitor log-in books, lanyards, badges, and visitor management systems, it’s easier than ever to make sure that you know who’s visiting your office or building. Tracking visitors not only keeps your building safe from theft and violence, it promotes a feeling of security and well-being throughout your entire organization. 
 

Visitor Login Books: With self-expiring badges, visitor login books are an effective way to track visitors while keeping their visit information confidential. 

Visitor Cards: Choose from reusable and durable plastic PVC visitor cards or one-time use adhesive visitor name badges. 

Visitor Lanyards: Visually identify visitors with bold, bright visitor lanyards. Simply attach a visitor ID card for added security. 

Visitor Management Systems (school edition): Our Visitor Express: School Edition allows you to choose from over 50 badge templates, track and report on visitors, and print visitor badges in 20 seconds or less. 

Do you know who's visiting your office?!
Visitor management made easy! 
 
Whether you encounter fewer than 10 visitors a day or more than 50, a visitor management system should be a vital piece of your daily operations to ensure that you know who is visiting your facility in order to ensure the safety of your employees.

Fall is in the air and children across the country have recently returned to school. Elementary schools in particular are where children spend a large portion of their day for several months of the year – and yet, are you familiar with the safety measures your institution takes when it comes to your child? Do you know the systems that your school has in place to protect against child predators and abduction?
 
Visitor Express: School Edition is a system that offers peace of mind for parents, children, and school administrators. The system uses the following features to ensure security for children within the school building:
 
• Instantaneous sex offender check and mapping                
• Customizable unwanted visitor lists 
• Approved pick-up list                                                 
• Mass-alert in event of an emergency
• Emergency response reporting
• Time-expiring visitor ID badge technology
    
Ensure the safety of your students!
Visitor Express enables secure visitor check-in in less than 30 seconds. Simply scan your visitor’s state-issued ID, check it against the database, print their badge and go! The barcode scanner makes check-out a breeze and quick reports show who is in the building, who they’re visiting, and their location! 
 
When it comes to children, you can never be too careful. Learn about Visitor Express: School Edition and gain peace of mind when it comes to the security of students.

What Visitor ID Solution is Right for my Organization?

by david 16. January 2012 07:00
david

Whether you work at a business, school, or hospital, tracking visitors is very important. Visitor management provides you with knowledge about who is in your building and why they’re visiting. It also helps your coworkers to identify visitors who may be unfamiliar to your building, policies, and procedures.

Visitor identification solutions come in a variety of sizes, so you can implement a program that fits your organization’s needs and budget. 

Find the Visitor Management Solution for Your OrganizationVisitor ID Solutions for Small Organizations: For small organizations, one time visitor name badges are an affordable option. This program is also very easy to implement, so you don’t have to conduct in-depth training.  Simply have the visitor write their name on the badge and wear it while in the building for easy identification.

Visitor ID Solutions for Mid-Size Organizations: In a mid-sized organization, additional visitor information may be necessary to understand the purpose of the visit. A visitor login book requires the visitor to provide additional information about their visit and creates a wearable adhesive visitor badge in the process. 

Visitor ID Solutions for Large Organizations: Large organizations often have multiple entrances and welcome lots of visitors every day. Streamline your visitor management program with a visitor software program that includes an automated process, tracking and reporting capabilities, and custom badge creation.

4 Reasons for a Visitor Identification System

by david 28. September 2011 08:52
david

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.

Visitor Login Books Increase School Security

by todd 22. March 2011 12:10

Focus on School Security. For the month of March, the IDville team will be focusing on school security. All this month, we’ll blog about different ways to improve school security. Have questions? Email us or request a System Information Pack for more info.

Schools have countless visitors in any given day. Parents, teachers, volunteers, community members, and sales people all present themselves at a school for one reason or another. Visitors can throw a wrench in even a sound student and staff ID card policy by being in the building unidentified. To safety identify school visitors, implement a visitor login book at your visitor entrance.

Schools should always track visitors with a visitor login book. Keep your book in the main office and require all visitors to register before going to a classroom. A secure visitor login book will create a record of all visitors and assign visitors with a self-expiring visitor adhesive ID badge. Visitors wear the badge while they are in the building, but it changes color after 24 hours. This feature prevents visitors from reusing badges and re-entering the building at a later date.

Implementing a visitor login book into your security plans will have several benefits for your school: Shop Visitor Login Books

Make a good first impression. Your visitor login book should be kept in a central location where all visitors enter the building. Other entrances should be locked and marked with a sign to direct visitors to the correct door. Put an individual in charge of welcoming visitors and instructing them to complete the sign-in process when they first arrive.

Create a record of visitors. A visitor login book creates a record of who is in your school building. Most visitor login books record the visitor’s name, their organization or purpose for visit, and the date. Keep this information in a safe, discreet location on hand for three months before safely discarding it.

Visually identify visitors. Visitor login books equip visitors with an adhesive name badge to wear while in the school. Visitors who wear an ID card send a clear message to your employees and staff, which is especially helpful in a large school building.

Visitor Management System at Community Hospital

by david 18. January 2011 08:49
david

This month, we’ve been talking about ways you can make your facility more secure in 2011.  A visitor management system is an important part of a secure facility because it gives you the knowledge of who is in your building. Community Hospital, an IDville customer, added a visitor management system to its security procedures to keep staff and patients safer. Here’s how they did it:

Visitor Login with Self Expiring BadgesCommunity Hospital is a 58-bed hospital in rural southwest Michigan that recently implemented a visitor management system. Even at its modest size, the hospital takes patient and employee security very seriously. To improve facility security, the hospital’s security committee created a visitor management policy to identify the numerous vendors, visitors, and contractors that visit the hospital on a regular basis.

Previously, visitors were announced at the reception desk and permitted into the hospital without any form of identification. When creating the visitor management policy, the security committee wanted a Visitor Login System at each of the two public entrances. All visitors who enter through the front or emergency room doors must pass by a receptionist who asks them to sign in. The other entrances into the hospital require an HID card that is given only to employees.

The visitor management system at the hospital now requires all visitors to sign-in and wear an adhesive name badge. The name badge changes color after 24 hours to indicate that the badge has expired. More importantly, the login process creates a record off all visitors, so the hospital can track vendors and visitors in the building.

Keep Identification a Priority during Halloween Celebrations

by david 27. October 2010 14:07
david

Halloween is on Sunday, and many workplaces will be having Halloween parties this Friday to celebrate. At IDville, our employees can wear costumes and their kids trick-or-treat around the office.

With so many people coming in and out of the building for Halloween festivities, it’s important that identification remain a top priority. This week, put your visitor identification system to work to ensure the safety of both your employees and your visitors.

Here are a few tips that will keep everyone safe and improve your Halloween celebration:

1. Ask guests to RSVP.
If you’re inviting guests to your facility for a Halloween party or trick-or-treating, ask employees to RSVP their guests ahead of time. This way, you can create ID cards for guests with your photo ID card printer.

2. Register visitors at the entrance.
You may not be able to collect RSVPs for everyone, so be prepared to register visitors when they arrive. A visitor system can help you keep track of everyone who is in your building.

3. Create name badges for visitors.
In addition to creating a record of visitors, a visitor identification system will also create an adhesive name badge that visitors can wear in the building. Since both children and adults will be in costume, it may be difficult to identify individuals by sight. Name badges will make sure you know who is in the building.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
