We are looking at replacing (or rather implementing) a visitor management solution at my workplace. All we currently have is a label printer :/

What we are wanting is something touch screen where visitors enter their own details and then are printed out a visitor label. All of there details including who they are visiting, time of visit, company they are from etc are captured and stored in a back end where we can do some minimal reporting. Also at a glance see who is visiting in the building in case of fire alarm etc.

Has anyone got anything implemented that they would recommend? Plenty of hits on google for this stuff but would love to hear about a real world implementation.

Thanks :)

I ended up writing a custom one in ASP.NET for the place I work. Currently we have about 150 visitors a day.

Pop into your local Pak 'n Save. Our local one (Lincoln Road, Henderson) has a touch screen at the entry with "Sign In" and "Sign Out" options, and basically what happens is when a merchandiser arrives to stock shelves or whatever they do, they tap sign in and enter their details (I believe they get a printed tag for the duration of their visit) and when done they tap sign out to indicate that they are leaving, and that's that.

Next time I'm in there, I'll see if they have an identifiable vendor name anywhere.

If you're interested I can find out what Telecom use in our receptions in Auckland and Wellington. Touch screen kiosk which looks up AD to find names and has a camera up the top to take a mugshot and then sends an email & sms to the person that their visitor has arrived. Then has bar code scanner on the bottom to scan folks on the way out with the barcode included on the visitor sticker. As an end user I think it is a pretty nifty solution.
