This is the reason we have come up with smart desk management systems that enable you to automatically check in, on getting approved via the application.

Digital Check-in

How does Visitdesk’s ‘Check-in’ work?

 When a visitor enters the workplace, they are immediately classified based on the category of visitor they are. They then move to a self check-in kiosk where they feed their data in a digital form. The host is notified of their entry and is immediately summoned to escort them to their meeting room.

Visitdesk offers different ways to check-in for different visitors. Your employees and guests may either check in with credentials or self check in by scanning QR code. Apart from this, separate options are also made available for recurring and invited visitors.
