I have been asked to look into visitor/staff registration systems to choose one for my company's remodeled reception area. Does anyone out there have experience or recommendations for such a system? I have no real knowledge of them apart from the times I've used them as a site visitor myself. Any help is appreciated.

One of the by far easier to manage systems..

You supply a PC, Kiosk mode the hell out of it. Get printer and set it up, lock down IE. Integrade user address book. Done.

Visitors login, emails/txts the person visiting that they are there. I had seen it at a number of places before needing to set it up for a client myself. Not sure on the costs (I Only did the tech stuff to it) but its fairly popular around NZ

whosonlocation is very good. we use it. Just use a touchscreen PC with IE running in kiosk mode and a brother label printer. Just look at their list of label printers before buying anything, I think they only support a few types. 

Try Vultr using this link and get us both some credit:

We have systems like that but customers just end up abusing the service without understanding the security implications: e.g. "John Key" signing in , meeting with "your mother" type childish scenarios. Call it unprofessional but the way NZ contracts work is they are done on handshake-in-a-pub type attitude.

Another option: Vistab. Not sure if it has a print function.
