Inform Requisites of Your Check-In Process Beforehand

While inviting visitors to your office, it would be beneficial if you could provide details about your check in process such as temperature check at entry point, wearing face mask or face shield, no touch identification such as QR code scanning and much more. This will make the visitors prepared well in advance and avoid confusion at entry/exit points.

  • Health and Temperature Check at Entry Point

You can introduce health and temperature check mechanisms before any visitor is granted entry to ensure that the visitors are not carriers of the disease.

Generate eBadges Automatically

The organization can install a printer adjacent to the check in system which automatically generates E-badges rather than a front desk employee physically signing them for the visitor.
