What are the hardware specifications to run Greetly's Digital Receptionist software?

You can always find the most current hardware specs and requirements here:

Do I need dedicated hardware to operate Greetly's visitor management system?

Actually, no, you don't. With Greetly's touchless visitor management system you do not need a kiosk or any other dedicated hardware. You can email or post a link or QR code that guests can use to initiate the visitor sign in process.

A kiosk though is a great way to bring visibility to your Greetly reception software. It also helps visitors who don't have a smartphone register their visit.

iPad or Android tablet?

The choice is yours. There are some clear benefits to selecting an Android versus iPad receptionist though. Let's explore each mobile device operating system.

There are several benefits of using an Apple iPad for your reception software. One is that iOS is less prone to viruses and malware. Another is that accessories, like mounting kiosks to secure your tablet computer, are plentiful.

Some do not select iPads for their lobby check in software due to their cost. Another is that they stop supporting their own devices after a few years.

The primary upside of selected an Android reception kiosk is cost. There are many device manufacturers competing on a variety of factors. Depending on your organization's IT infrastructure, it may also be easier to support Android devices.

Device cost savings are often offset though by accessory costs. Ironically, the greater the tablet options the fewer the accessories for them.

Can you automatically generate reports?

Yes. First, save a report. Then you can have them emailed to your inbox either weekly or monthly. Data analysis has never been easier.
