Why choose People Presence Management over Visitor Management?

Posted by:Alice Cresswell onMay 9, 2018

There is an upward trend in companies shifting from spreadsheet or paper-based sign-in systems to visitor registration software.

A digital log of site visitors is more secure and it makes it much easier to pull up live and historic site visitor reports.

But before you take the plunge and decide on a product, have you considered a more widely functional people presence management solution?

What is people presence management?

People presence management is a revolutionary way to manage more than just visitors or people coming on-site. Using people presence management software, you can measure and track movements around the site (for example, zone-to-zone movements) and even at off-site locations.

With people presence management, kiosks aren’t single purpose sign-in / sign-out points. They become a tool for running inductions, a site hazard awareness resource or a checkpoint for qualifications and zone access permissions.

Does my organization need people presence management?

Ask yourself: What problem am I looking to solve? Do I want an easy way for visitors to sign-in to your office so that you can provide a smooth brand experience?

Yes? Then a simple visitor management app could be your ideal solution.

But if you’re an enterprise-scale organization with 150+ employees, multiple sites and/or zones, complex safety and security requirements and a need to accurately track each and every person on-site, consider upgrading to people presence management software.

Industries that need this kind of deep, integrated functionality are usually high security or high hazard facilities or sites that require stringent access control. These typically include…

  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Government
  • Science and Research
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Technology
