Lister signing in for a secure welcome
By Rob Freeman | 12th November 2020
With staff working from a mixture of locations and the need to remain Covid secure, it has never been more important to know exactly who is on a company's premises.
And Stonehouse-based Lister Communications is providing the answer with its visitor management system.
Designed as a modern and secure replacement for the traditional visitor log book, it can monitor visitors, contractors and staff as they enter the premises.
As a visitor signs in on a touch screen tablet in reception, the system can take their photograph, print a visitor's badge, make them aware of their responsibilities and send a message informing the person they are there to see of their arrival.
The system is particularly useful in helping with issues from coronavirus, collating which staff are in the building and taking the necessary contact details for track and trace.
And the information can provide an evacuation list via a mobile device in case of a fire drill or emergency.
Director Jim Clapham said: "The track and trace capabilities have been key at the moment as it can take and log all the necessary contact and health and safety details.
"It's very useful for buildings sites, factories and offices, especially if they have contractors on site. It's important they keep track of who is on site.
"It certainly makes you a lot more Covid compliant."
He continued: "The traditional way of taking details in a book is not GDPR compliant, using the virtual reception means the data is stored in a secure admin portal."
The screen can be used to display branding and information when not being used to sign in.
