5 Signs Your Current Visitor Management Program Needs Help

Posted by Dan Ryan on Oct 20, 2016 9:00:00 AM

With Visitor Management, it's easy to talk about the good stuff.

When your system prevents an unwanted guest from gaining access to your site or a guest compliments the strong first impression he or she got from your sign-in process, it's fun to soak in the praise.

You take a step back, pat yourself on the back and think, "I am great."

And you are! There's nothing wrong with celebrating Visitor Management successes and basking in the glory of keeping your site and its personnel safe and secure.

However, there's also the other side of the coin.

Yes, the bad.

No one likes to discuss their failures, let alone celebrate them. But with Visitor Management, some failures are telltale signs that your Visitor Management installation isn't working properly, and needs to be looked at again.

Don't worry!

These failures aren't things that you need to dwell on or mope about. Instead, identifying these weaknesses can be looked at as a good thing: by finding issues and rectifying them, you'll ensure that your site remains secure.

You can't fix your problems without identifying them first

3 Common Worksite Problems That Can Be Solved By Contractor Management

Posted by Dan Ryan on Oct 4, 2016 8:15:00 AM

Visiting contractors play a pivotal role in operations running smoothly at organizations of all kinds.

Whether it's a warehouse that has contracted HVAC employees visit regularly to check on their freezers or an office building that has a contracted food service company bringing in deliveries daily, contractors are essential to many a successful business.

From an administrative standpoint, however, contractors can be tricky.

They're not technically employees, so they don't fall under the same umbrella as your daily personnel. However, they're also not technically guests, as they're at your site to do a job.

Contractors will be risking injury on occasion and will be logging hours that cost your organization money. For those reasons (and many more), giving each contractor a visitor badge and calling it a day simply isn't good enough.

If your organization welcomes contractors to your site on a regular (or even semi-regular) basis, you need a Contractor Management system.

From clearing up billing discrepancies to making sure your organization is protected in the event of an incident, a good Contractor Management system is crucial to ensuring that your organization is able to welcome contractors effectively and safely.

Contractors, Employees and Assets: What is People Presence Management?

Posted by Dan Ryan on Sep 27, 2016 3:00:00 PM

It's kind of a vague-sounding term, isn't it?

People Presence Management.

Managing presences? Is it making sure people are present?

Is it giving presents to people, just spelled incorrectly?

Yes, the idea of People Presence Management can be confusing, as it kind of sounds like a buzzword that doesn't really mean anything, like "moving the needle" or "value add."

However, in reality, you're probably already performing some kind of People Presence Management at your worksite, without even knowing it.

People Presence Management, as a practice, is a key aspect of increasing workplace safety, limiting billing discrepancies and ensuring that key insurances are recorded and up to date.

Like Visitor Management, People Presence Management is an emerging concept in the ID and security industries.

Solutions range from the basic to the comprehensive, but all of them have the same goal:

To increase control over what's going on at a worksite, thereby increasing safety and security for all.

You're probably already performing People Presence Management...

4 Ways WhosOnLocation™ Goes Above and Beyond Visitor Management

Posted by Dan Ryan on Mar 22, 2016 1:03:42 PM

At its core, WhosOnLocation is a Visitor Management solution: its main goal is to record and track the presence of guests, thereby increasing security at your site.

WhosOnLocation does Visitor Management very well, offering a clean interface, easy set-up, expiring badge printing and a variety of options that allow users to tailor the program to meet the specific needs of their sites. 

However, WhosOnLocation does so much more than Visitor Management. Customers doing research on Visitor Management solutions are often (rightly) so focused on guest-processing capabilities that they're unaware of the additional features that come bundled with this powerful, web-based Visitor Management platform. 

For example, did you know WhosOnLocation includes a built-in way to track tools, keys or other shared equipment? Read on to learn more about that feature and to see what else WhosOnLocation has to offer.

What else can you do with WhosOnLocation?
