A lot of components come into play when it comes to keeping a business safe. You can install a closed circuit security camera system to safeguard against intruders (or at least to be able to identify them). You can hire security guards. Some places have metal detectors. Hopefully, every single business owner has a solid cyber security plan. But what about visitors?
If your business foresees people coming in and out of your property on a daily basis, it’s imperative to have a reliable visitor management software. This will not only protect you, your business, and employees from potential threats; but it also keeps at bay any legal liabilities that would arise if a guest or client got injured while on your premises. The following are just a few of the benefits you would get from installing a visitor management software:
Keep things digital:
Have you ever been to one of those buildings that only require you sign your name, time of arrival, and office you are visiting in a Visitors Log? Honestly, how practical do you think that is? If a person were going into the building with the intent to commit a crime, do you think they’re going to sign their real name? Or what if all the information in the book is accurate, but is later needed for record keeping purposes (or litigation), and it gets lost? This is 2017. Having a paper log is the equivalent of having a rotary telephone in your home.
In addition to safety concerns, there’s the issue of being efficient. Do you like showing up to a building, only to stand in a long line at the entrance? We all have things to do. Waiting for everyone and their mother to sign their name on a log book is like waiting for that old lady at the grocery store to write out a check to pay for her groceries. Don’t piss off your clients. Pre-register them ahead of time, and let them go on about their day.
Increase your security:
A visitor management software will allow you to include pictures of visitors, as well as cross reference names with known criminals. Know exactly who’s in your building and who should stay out.
Look more professional:
This one’s a no brainer. Compare both scenarios described above and tell me which one would give you the impression that one of the business owners is more professional than the other. What impression do you want to give your own visitors?
If you still don’t have a visitor management software, it’s time to get with the program and show that you care about your business. Call Source 1 Solutions, and we’ll get it done for you.
