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.
