Digital sign-in process
Posted on 2013-06-25
My boss is unhappy with the current, clunky sign-in process we have which is the traditional sign-in book. He would like to see a digital system set up at our reception desk with populated fields, such as staff someone might come to see, companies that frequently visit and auto-entry of dates/times, etc. We could perhaps implement something with one of our RIM Playbooks or perhaps purchase something like a tablet, I see that being easier to sign on than a touchscreen. If we could also combine it with a Visitor Welcome sign/board then he would truly be impressed.
I'm not sure if there are dedicated systems for this but my searching so far has only come up with creating visitor badges or school-type systems. I would like to find something more business oriented that would allow for spontaneous visits rather than planned visitors we would know and log and give clearances to ahead of time. We could use InfoPath and/or SharePoint or even something based off Office as long as we can pre-populate and automate some fields and allow a signature if possible.
If anyone knows of any digital systems I can research or has ideas of how to implement something it would be greatly appreciated!!
