From the simplicity of its user interface to the fantastic first impression it sets, the benefits of an electronic visitor management system are pretty crystal clear. There are some advantages you might not have thought of, though. Here are 5 benefits of visitor management systems:

Saving Time, Gaining Productivity

One of the first, and largest, benefits of using an electronic visitor management system is that of saving time, and thus, improving productivity.

Data Compliance

With the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming into place on May 25th 2018 data compliance is more important than ever, and a visitor management system is a fantastic way to get your reception ready for GDPR.

If you would like to learn more about the implications of GDPR we’ve put together a detailed GDPR guide in our Road to Compliance whitepaper outlining the steps you can take to prepare for the new regulations.

Better Visibility

Visitor information logged in the system, along with captured photo IDs, enables easy identification and tracking of individuals within the building. Reception staff can swiftly identify visitors, track their activities, and analyze visitor patterns. Pre-registration options further enhance preparedness by providing receptionists with advance information about arriving guests.

Improved Security

Enhanced safety is one of the most important benefits of a visitor management system. It’s vital for any organisation, company or workplace to be aware of everything that goes on within the premises. The ability to identify visitors allows staff to be prepared for any unwanted circumstance. If someone has caused trouble in the past they will be identified quickly. The system also ensures that visitors can only enter authorised areas.


Overall, Visitor Management Systems play a crucial role in modern facilities by balancing security requirements with the need for efficient and welcoming visitor experiences. Their benefits extend beyond mere access control, positively impacting organizational efficiency, compliance, and reputation.

With all the benefits a digital visitor management system has to offer, it is clear why so many organizations are giving them a try.

  • Airports use self-check-in kiosks in order to let the employees handle the real challenges.
  • Schools use visitor check-in systems for security purposes so they know exactly who is in the building with the students.
  • Coworking locations use them to contact hosts in a fast, efficient manner when a formal receptionist doesn’t make sense.
  • Businesses of all kinds, from manufacturing to sales, use them to ensure their guests are welcomed, are where they are supposed to be, and walk away with a great impression of the organization.
