Visitor management represents a critical aspect of commercial security, since, more often than not, visitors are the biggest security breach in most buildings around the world.
While most companies and organizations do have solid access control and security systems in place, they are quite often bypassed when security guards and/or receptionists hold open a gate, boom or turnstile for visitors to walk through.
Moreover, visitors typically have to fill in a desk-based register or complete a slip in a security guard’s book, yet no one really checks this information, despite the fact that these visitors are the biggest unknown on any site.
In order to avoid further security risks, visitor management should be an integral part of any company’s or organization’s existing access control systems, making sure that one system is used to manage both employees and visitors/contractors.
Tensor Management of Contractors and Visitors Software(MCVS) – a leading visitor management system to improve the security of your business premises
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.
