What is a typical visitor sign in process?
The sign-in process at most aged care homes and health care facilities can be time-consuming and cumbersome. It often involves a paper sign-in book that needs to be completed manually by each visitor. This can lead to long queues and frustration, especially during busy periods.
Our digital visitor management system streamlines the sign-in process and makes it more efficient. Visitors, contractors and staff can easily check in using our self-service kiosks, which are located at the entrance of the facility. The process is quick and easy, and visitors can even use their face with the built in facial recognition feature or a QR code to speed up the process.
Once signed in, the system sends an instant alert notification to the host or resident to alert them of their arrival.
The check-in is also recorded in the online web dashboard so that administrators and support teams can access a live view of everyone on-site.
