Gatehouse staff can quickly check identity of business visitors using ID pass
A rural insurer says agricultural theft is on the rise, and this is estimated to have cost the UK farming industry £49.7m in 2010. NFU Mutual said ‘agri-crime’ on farms has risen from £41m in 2009, with power tools like chainsaws, electric drills and lawnmowers the most stolen items in 2010. The organisation surveyed its branch offices in rural towns and villages and found that two-thirds of branches had reported an increase in rural crime in their area.
Among the varied options for business access control security supplied by Tensor is VMS (Visitor Management System). Simple to operate, and user friendly with WindowsTM style software, it allows reception and gatehouse staff to quickly check the identity or enter the details of visitors, and print their personalised ID pass. On arrival at a site, a full colour photograph is taken and personal details are recorded and digitally stored. Once the details are safely stored within the PC, an inexpensive bar coded pass is then issued containing a photograph, name and validation dates.
