Managing Visitors with ID Card Systems
Visitor management systems that create ID cards for visits have become popular in many different industries and settings in the past 15 years. They ensure safety and security, streamline Visitor check-ins, and even create databases of people who visit a business.
Visitor Management ID card systems can capture photos and other pertinent information that can be used for security purposes. Common industries to use ID cards for visitor management include education (school or college), healthcare (hospitals and doctors’ offices), retail, technology, finance, and government.
Visitor ID Benefits for Businesses
While this system has several functions, businesses mostly use visitor ID cards to:
- Ensure proof of identification. Visitor management with ID cards can be used so that office staff knows that a visitor is who they say they are. By showing their driver’s license or other ID, a business is able to capture visitor information. Visitor Management systems are secure, fast and cost effective.
- Administer and manage visitor details. ID cards can provide you with a wealth of information. You’ll know how many people are in your building, who they are, why they are there, and in some cases, you’ll even know where they are, based on the Physical Access Control system that is available. The details can be used for people who are entering the building for a job interview, for a sales meeting, for package delivery, or for training.
- Secure your company or building. The visitors who enter your building are required to present their Drivers License. The Visitor Management System will scan the Drivers License and the information will be uploaded to a Visitor Database and be given a temporary visitor ID either paper or plastic and a time stamp. For example, if the package delivery contractor only enters your office between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. every day, they can be given an ID badge that grants them access only during those hours—or only on certain days.
