What is a visitor check-in app?

With a visitor check-in app like Greetly, it has never been easier to register visitors, connect them with the right host and get them where they need to be. Having a visitor registration app can be crucial in saving time for your employees. And since 60% of people say they prefer self-help tools, visitors will appreciate the ability to check themselves into your location without having to wait for, or have awkward conversation with, a receptionist or office manager. This is a win-win.

With Greetly, visitors can quickly select the reason for their visit, who they're there to see, and type in their name. Employees can receive notifications about the arrival of a guest via phone, text, email, or even Slack message, making it easier than ever to be notified without interrupting workflow. (Greetly can do so much more during visitor registration, like capturing visitors' pictures, printing name badges and facilitating NDA eSignatures.)
