Automate Your Visitor Management

What is visitor management?

A visitor management system helps you and your staff manage the visitor process to achieve an effective workflow: from registration, to the printing of visitor badges, to reporting on visitors.

It allows receptionists to quickly check visitors in, print badges and perform barcode scans of badges to keep track of registered visitors. The system helps to improve security and comes with many benefits and automation features.

Registering Visitors

When registering visitors, you can add multiple visitors at once in order to make the registration of many visitors faster for the end user. You can also create a recurring visit when inviting visitors. The visitor will be listed in the visitor overview for each day and can be checked in appropriately. The expected arrival and departure times can be adjusted per day, e.g., if the visitor is leaving earlier on Friday.

The software allows you to set up your user interface as you prefer. Also, you can decide which data should be stored on the visitor and therewith can be used again if the visitor visits frequently.

It is also possible to configure a visitor badge to be used as default on one or more locations when creating new visitors in the Visitor Module or for badge print in a self-registration kiosk.

See an example of visitor management.

Authorization of visitors      

Resource Central has a Visitor Authorization feature implemented. This means that you can configure Authorizers to authorize visitors’ visits at specific locations and zones.

You can set up a mix of authorization processes so that only visitors going into areas with high security or areas with limited capacity will require authorization. Visitors going into your more ‘open’ areas will not require authorization. Visitors can also be set up to be escorted during their visit.

Authorizers will be notified by email, when visitors require authorization, and they can see and manage the authorization in the visitor overview. The role of the Authorizer can also be configured as a receptionist and thereby be able to check visitors in and out, print badges or perform any other functions in the visitor module.

Easily configure your own visitor types

In the visitor registration system, different visitor types can be created. This makes it easy for the reception staff to ensure the right reception when guests come to visit. Examples of visitor types are

  • VIP guests
  • visitors with restricted access to certain areas
  • craftsmen
  • long-term guests
  • or other categories that might be relevant to your organization.

The front desk personnel can then, for example, make sure to have access cards ready, reserve a VIP parking space, or book extra lunch, depending on the organization’s internal procedures and wishes.

The guest types can be configured per location, so it is possible to have different types or categories at different locations. The guest type can be set as needed by the meeting organizer or by the front desk staff.

Self-registration Kiosk

In unsupervised lobbies or high-traffic reception areas, companies can use the self-registration kiosk feature where visitors can check themselves in (hardware required). No longer do receptionists have to spend an inordinate amount of time signing visitors in and notifying hosts.

Resource Central as a visitor management system

Resource Central has many built-in features that make it easy to use the software as the company’s preferred visitor registration system.

When visitors are registered correctly when they arrive, security is enhanced. And when guests’ arrival can be registered faster and more efficiently, delays or queues at reception are also reduced.

When using Resource Central as a visitor management system, meeting organizers can also register visitors in advance and front desk staff can quickly check them in and print name badges or hand out access cards – or guests can check themselves in. The visitor registration system can also be used with barcodes, so with a simple scan it is easy to identify who is checking in.
