What are Microsoft visitor management systems?
A Microsoft visitor management system is a software that enables a business or government organizations to manage visitors by tracking their arrival and departure times, as well as record their contact information.
Additionally, a Microsoft visitor management system can help businesses keep track of who is visiting their office and why.
For added security, visitor details are securely stored on regional Microsoft Azure servers that are certified to ISO27001 standards.
It can also be used to issue badges and print out guest passes at the front desk and impress visitors with a simple to use interface.
The visitor management process is improved with instant host notification can be sent to employees via MS Teams after the visitor check-in process.
The host notification includes the visitor details and a link to sign them out.

By integrating MS Teams into the VisitUs visitor management system, it means that you won’t leave an important guest waiting as their host is sent an instant notification.
VisitUs features real time reception notifications that are sent via SMS, email, Microsoft Teams mobile and desktop app and push notification to the VisitUs mobile app.
It’s easy to set-up as any employee with the appropriate access can create a notification channel. Once that’s completed simple save your new web-hook in the VisitUs admin dashboard to start receiving instant notifications.
Notifications sent to hosts in Microsoft Teams include an interactive button to sign out their visitor in case they forget at the end of their visit.
