We’re going ISO

Earlier this year, we decided to gain ISO 27001 certification, and it’s not just a certificate on the wall. This is yet another step to give our customers confidence that their security is our top priority. Read more >

New office

This year our Wellington crew took up residence in a shiny new office on Vivian Street (with an outdoor area and barbecue to boot).

Super top security!

We were chosen as the visitor management solution for a major government-backed tech organization (doing amazing work in AI). This was hugely affirming as it is testament to our capability to support some of the highest-security operations in the  world.

Speedy support

For the show to go on, Live Nation needed urgent customer support for a feature they needed to use. Getting in touch instantly, our support team completed their request in less than a day!
“I highly appreciate the extra effort to make this a usable feature for us. This will make our lives leaps and bounds easier.” – Parker Woods

A flexible product

We’re always amazed when we see WhosOnLocation being used in different and creative ways. This year, a school we work with told us they’d been using WhosOnLocation to track which students were going off-site for lunch, and know when they’d returned. That way, if there was an emergency or evacuation on-site at school, they could verify their safety.

Epic releases this year:



This year, we gave users the ability to sync employees’ information in WhosOnLocation with any third-party employee database system.


Woohoo! In the past 12 months, our WolMobile GeoLocation update means you can choose to have employee or service providers’ location send from their WolMobile app automatically.

Inter-zone Kiosk

You wanted to track movements between zones, not just on and off site. We heard you loud and clear! Now, you can create Inter-zone Kiosks that are used for entering and exiting separate zones within your location.


With WolScan, we’ve made it even easier to secure your facility. The latest addition to the WhosOnLocation product suite, WolScan allows you can capture visitors’ passport, driver’s license or other photo ID at sign-in – either a Kiosk or by signing in at the front desk.

GDPR changes

A big change for companies worldwide, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was the new comprehensive data protection law that strengthened the protection of personal data. To help our customers adhere to the new standards, we released several new features in May, including…

  • The ability to erase a visitor’s personal information from your account manually or automatically
  • A privacy disclaimer for photo capture
  • Visitor opt-in to being remembered by your Kiosk or Sign In/Out Manager.
