Modern visitor management systems can improve physical security and cost-effectiveness


Access Control and Management of Contractors and Visitors System from Tensor

Modern visitor management systems capable of integrating fully into access control and time and attendance systems can significantly improve the overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of a physical security system, experts have argued.

The most advanced visitor management solutions allow real-time system integration for more user-intuitive registration and badging processes and enable access control and visitor management to evolve and become more deeply integrated into any organization’s overall physical security structure.

Government regulations are also driving increased security levels for visitor management. Private industry, where the need to manage and monitor visitors is an equally high security priority, is following suit. As a result, access control and visitor management are evolving and becoming more rooted in an organisation’s overall physical security structure.

Additional levels of integration further expand the utility of today’s more powerful advanced visitor management platforms. A combined visitor management and access control system allows users to consolidate entrance and exit activities onto a single system for improved management in a distributed environment. The single interface enables greater speed and accuracy in scanning and tracking visitors as well as greater control via user-defined security access privileges and real-time activation and de-activation of badges.

Tensor Management of Contractors and Visitors Software(MCVS) – a leading visitor management system to meet all your needs and requirements

The Management of Contractors and Visitors Software(MCVS) is a network-based application that allows you to advance book visitor appointments and pre-book on site contractors. These bookings can be made either via the PC based application or a user’s Internet browser. Directly an appointment is booked, notification emails are sent to both the visitor and their host informing them of the appointment’s date, time and location.

Visitor appointments can be pre-booked either directly on the system or through the online Appointment Planner found within Tensor’s Self Service Module (SSM). Employees with an account can log into SSM using their Internet browser. Depending upon their security profile, SSM users can view and make appointments for themselves or colleagues. SSM users can also create new visitor and visitor company entries, view their own appointments, view all appointments at their site or view all appointments for their organisation.

The Visitor Monitoring (MCVS) module can be integrated with Tensor’s Access Control application. In this way when visitors and contractors arrive they are handed a smart card along with their identification pass. The smart card will grant them access through doors according to the security rules assigned to them on arrival. Furthermore, security settings are available to require authorised cardholders to escort visitors. The authorised escort must scan their card to validate the visitor’s card before access is granted.
