Secure Visitor Management from EasyLobby, Inc.

Improving Security Through Better Visitor Management

In many organizations, visitors and contractors are still being asked to sign a paper visitor log.  While this method of keeping track of visitors is perceived as quick and easy, it provides very little security, and poses a number of other problems:

  • More often than not, the names are not legible, or are false
  • In an emergency (fire, etc.), it would be impossible to quickly determine who is still in the building (can’t read the names and check out times are not always required or enforced)
  • Information regarding who has visited the company is readily available for everyone to see, but this information should be confidential
  • The paper log, and hand-written visitor badges, presents a poor image to visitors, and a perception of lax security

To address these issues, both large and small organizations are implementing an EasyLobby secure visitor management system (SVM).  The system resides on a Windows computer, typically at the reception desk, and automates the entire process of registering a visitor and printing a badge.
