3 Ways to Do More with Your Employee Badges

Posted by Dan Ryan on Nov 14, 2017 12:00:00 PM

The majority of today's workplaces require employees to carry some form of identification card. These employee badges are often pretty standard: a name, a photo, a title, maybe a company logo.

There's a reason why such a format is so popular: it works.

Simplicity is king in many cases, with organizations settling for the basics because they're not aware of the other options out there.

However, if you're settling for a basic ID card for your employees, you're missing out on an opportunity to make your ID program even more powerful.

ID cards all perform one key function: they verify the identity of the wearer. However, you can also use your ID credentials to perform a variety of other tasks.

By simply changing the kind of card stock you use and adding some equipment, you can take your ID card program from "ID only" to "wow, this card does a lot!"

In doing so, you can make life easier on your employees, offer a better way to track attendance and more, taking your ID program to another level.

Keep the ID, but do more with it

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

Posted by Dan Ryan on Sep 27, 2016 12:00:00 PM

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

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 10:03:42 AM

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.
