A powerful, web-based system that automates visitor data collection, secures entries and maintains historical information on all incoming visitors across a school building or district.
While it’s important to have visitors identified and processed through a single, automated system, it’s vital to have the historical and real-time data available. Having that information provides clarity on the amount of traffic a school gets on a daily basis, the reason for visiting and peak visit times. With that level of detail, not only can it be used to make operational or facility adjustments, but it could improve how schools react to an emergency situation.
With so much activity in a school’s front office, having an integrated system in place to streamline visitor entries will not only make things more efficient, but it’ll give administrators the peace of mind knowing that each visitor is vetted properly. This means automatic and discreet sex offender checks as well as the ability to know who is authorized to pick up a student.
When front office traffic is high, utilizing one system to check-in and register people keeps things running smoothly. Many schools opt to use their visitor management system to also track time for staff or volunteers as well as student arrivals and dismissals. Simply toggling between visitor types means added functionality and convenience, with less manual work for staff.
There is an increasing need to make sure students are being picked-up by their authorized guardian. This feature shouldn’t be overlooked when assessing visitor management systems. A simple, integrated student pick-up feature provides staff with basic details on who is and isn’t authorized to pick up a student, leaving the guesswork out. This gives administrators peace of mind knowing their students are safely leaving the building.
