Going Paperless At Office Reception Now Possible With New iPad App.
Apple launches first app for the iPad converting the sleek tech gadget into electronic visitor registry for offices around the world.
Companies prefer keeping their visitor information discreet, a tricky problem when using a paper binder. The “Sign In” app allows each visitor to sign in, showing only their own information and sheltering that of visitors ahead of them.
One issue often encountered by those highly visible paper binders, is the limitation of collecting useful information on your visitors. Visitor information was limited to that already in the public domain. Perhaps the collection of email address, or license plate was an impediment. With an electronic registry, the data can now be collected while remaining private.
The app is highly flexible, allowing each company to personalize the welcome message, play a slideshow between visitors, print personalized badges if needed, and even present a visitor’s agreement (ie: Waiver of liability) before granting access to the premises.
“Sign In” has been making great strides in markets around the world. Leading the app’s popularity is the US, UK and Australian markets. Apple’s iPad platform is a relatively inexpensive device ideally suited to be used in this way. Instead of a cumbersome computer with screen and keyboard, the iPad is compact, powerful, easy-to-use and aesthetically sophisticated.
High-tech, custom software solutions already exist for large companies that need to control door access with badges. Along with the high-tech solution comes high-tech prices in the thousand of dollars. The “Sign In” app is inexpensive, selling for the same price as a nice binder. The solution is viable for any sized company needing a sign in binder alternative.
