Visitor Management Systems should be fully integrated with electronic access control systems

Leave a Comment

Visitor management systems are now moving into the electronic/digital sector, offering facilities more options to monitor and manage visitors, such as vendors, clients, and prospective employees.

The technology and cost behind these systems has changed considerably in recent years, driving an increase in demand. This is because hosted visitor management systems, app-based solutions, and tablet interfaces have all made visitor management accessible to a larger segment of the business population. Where visitor management was a common solution for companies with a large corporate office, it is now increasingly important to those with 50 or more employees.

The desire to implement a visitor management system has been driven by good policy; however, a majority of businesses are required to implement a system because of regulatory compliance requirements. Critical infrastructure facilities are just a few entities that need to monitor guests, what floor they visited, and when they arrived and left.
