In the event of an emergency...

Proceed directly to your designated gathering point. Do not stop to grab your coat, your bags or a cheeky cigarette.

Visitor sign in system

Do not chat, dawdle or dilly-dally. Do not pass GO, do not collect £200. Oh, and don’t forget to make sure your colleagues and visitors make it out of the office.

When you’re standing outside in the cold during a roll call that reminds you of your school days, it’s easy to forget why we have fire drills. The fire marshals in their high-vis vests, clipboards and the ‘record’ time to beat, it can all seem a bit silly. Until you picture this happening in a real emergency, until you consider what could happen to the ‘unaccounted for’.

Do you know who is in your office right now? If you’re a small team, you probably have a very good idea. A mid sized business? Well, you might know who is on holiday and which visitors are in the book, but as for staff, you might be relying on your colleagues knowing each other's diaries. A larger office with several floors or perhaps a shared office space? The risk of missing someone is much greater.

With technology affecting and improving all areas of business, the visitor book has strangely been left behind. A relic, resurrected only for fire drills.

Using tablet PCs as touch screen kiosks, visitor management apps have finally addressed this, giving staff and visitors a quick and easy way to register on site. One such solution is Sign In App, developed locally here in Northamptonshire.

Sign In App is an iPad solution that sits on your reception desk, branded with your logo and corporate colours. The app is simple, allowing guests and your team to sign in, providing their name and company name, with any additional information you require such as who they are visiting, car registration or email address.

It’s a complete visitor management solution. With the option to wirelessly print visitor badges and capture photos with the built in camera, security is also improved. Frequent guests are remembered automatically and you have the option to pre-register expected visitors and VIPs. Staff can sign in and out using the same system and a complete history can be viewed and exported at any time.

A fire evacuation list can be accessed from the iPad itself or any internet connected device, giving you a live picture of exactly who is in the building at any time. Something you hope you’ll never have to rely on, but could be a life safer (literally) if you do.

Sign In App delivers a great first impression and peace of mind for £295.00 ex vat per year. Alternatively the full package which includes an iPad, printer, premium desk stand and one year license for the app is just £995.00 ex vat.
