Here are a few must-have features that organisations must look out for while choosing the right visitor management system software.

BIOMETRIC: Proper identification is a must in places where the number of visitors is large like retail, hotels, offices, courts, theme parks, cinema halls and museums. Book registration is an obsolete form of logging in details, as it cannot provide the right details. Visitor management software with biometrics is a perfect fit for such secured and highly populated areas. With biometrics, the details of the visitor can be easily logged in using the fingerprint. Tracking software like this can easily detect new visitors.

CLOUD: Saving visitor details in paper-sheet is a huge task, an easy solution to this problem is the cloud. A cloud based system allows the visitors to enter their detail which it automatically stores. Paper-based log system is not quite safe and secure, there is no privacy and anybody can access the data. On the contrary, cloud-based system is secure and nobody except the authorities can access its information. Also, with a cloud-based system the data can be accessed from anywhere around the world.

BLACKLIST OPTION: Manual systems are not trustworthy and there are high chances of fraud being committed. However, biometric visitor management software is capable enough to identify such frauds. It can identify culprits as it has fingerprints and iris stored in the data. Whenever an unwanted visitor enters the system, it would deny access.

CUSTOMISABLE: All organisations are different from each other, some are small and some are big, some are public and some are private. As all the originations are different it is important to choose a system that is customisable. A customisable system is capable of meeting all the needs of an organisation and is relatively less expensive.
