Visitor Management Application Software and Equipment

Sign In Visitors

Attendant types in visitor information (or optionally scans business card or driver's license) and optionally captures digital photo. This information is stored in visitors log database along with the person hosting the visitor. The person hosting the visitor is automatically notified by email of the visitor's arrival.

Produce ID Badges

An ID badge with tracking bar code is produced on Inkjet, Label Printer or Plastic Card Printer. Software supports photos and interfaces with inexpensive web cams to produce useful and attractive photo ID's.

Track Visitors

Visitor's badge is barcode scanned by the attendant to log in. Badges can be scanned elsewhere where appropriate and tracking information is stored in visitor's database record.

Sign Out Visitors

Upon leaving the visitor's badge is scanned by the attendant and visitor is signed outl. Visitor leaves badge with attendant.


The Visitor Management System now has all visitors' movements recorded in the system database. This means a variety of searches and reports may be performed on the system. Records may be kept available for extended periods and brought up conveniently with a few keystrokes.
