5 Questions to Ask When Shopping for a Visitor Management System

Visitor Management!

We talk about it a lot, and you know it's important.

You want it. You need it. You gotta have it!

But how do you go about finding the system that's right for you?

Truthfully, there's no simple answer to that question: choosing a Visitor Management system is one of the more difficult ID/security-related purchases an organization can make because each system is unique to the site at which it's installed.

Basically, there's no "one size fits all" solution when it comes to Visitor Management. And because there are a ton of different options to choose from, finding the right one can be tricky.

However, there are several key questions you can ask that will help you zero in on the perfect Visitor Management system for your needs.

Asking yourself certain questions about what you need from a system and about how certain aspects of your site operate will eliminate some options while elevating others to the top of the pile.

The result? The perfect Visitor Management system for you.

Sounds simple enough, right?

However, if you dig a little deeper, there's a larger root cause behind every Visitor Management system.

After all, most organizations aren't just a bunch of nosy people who want to know the names of strangers coming by.

No, the overarching goal of Visitor Management is to increase workplace safety for all on-site personnel, including both staff and guests.

And if you stop and think about it, it makes a lot of sense: Visitor Management systems try to identify threats, prevent unauthorized access and record any incidents, three key components to keeping a work site safe and incident-free. 

However, today's Visitor Management systems go far beyond simply recording a name when it comes to keeping your workplace safe from violence.
