What is a visitor management system?

A visitor management system is a tool used to check in employees, patients and other visitors. Most visitor management systems streamline the entire process of welcoming a visitor end-to-end. It’s a modern alternative to checking people in with a paper book and requiring them to hand write their names and email addresses.  


In the past, and still today, it’s very common to use paper to check in visitors, even in a world going paperless. And you likely know how the rest of the process goes— the receptionist will have to perform actions such as alert the relevant staff members, print a name tag, and keep track of the sign-in sheet for record-keeping purposes. 


This entire process is connected with a visitor management system, and one action automatically prompts the following action. Here’s a simple breakdown of how it can work. 


  1. Visitor enters their details 
  2. A name tag is automatically printed 
  3. Relevant staff get a notification on their device 
  4. Visitor information is stored for record-keeping purposes

Visitor management systems constantly add more features to further streamline many routine tasks associated with checking in and checking out visitors. Here are just a few of the many benefits you can enjoy when you add visitor management systems to your tech stack:  


  • Make a memorable first impression: The lobby is the first thing your patients, visitors, and contractors see. Using a visitor management system is a simple way to show your visitors that your practice is modern and you’re up to date with the latest trends and technology. 
  • Keep track of who’s who: If you work at a larger company, you know it’s easy to start seeing people around and wondering if they’re a coworker, contractor, or visitor. A visitor management system has many features to help with this, including badge printing and photo capture.  
  • Improves the experiences for your guests. Your patients and visitors will love how easy it is to check in. For future visits, they will not need to enter details they’ve already shared in the past since the system will already have the information linked to their email. 
  • Help the receptionist: Your receptionist works hard and a visitor management system can be like hiring an intern for them. Your receptionist will still play a big role in being friendly and welcoming guests, without the stress of needing to sort out routine tasks that can be handled by technology.  
  • Streamline compliance and privacy: From helping to comply with mandatory data retention periods to capturing signatures for NDAs and other legal documents, visitor management systems are a great solution for healthcare businesses who are looking for ways to streamline compliance.
