A visitor management system may seem like the sort of thing that only larger businesses need. “Need” is a strong word though. There are numerous benefits to installing a visitor management system that small businesses would appreciate.
It can sometimes be a struggle for small businesses to hold the same gravitas as the larger competitors. Small changes such as removing a paper sign in book and replacing it with an iPad based visitor sign in system is something that can boost your visitors’ first impression of your organisation. When visitors are often prospective customers, this is no small benefit.
Another common problem small businesses face is interruptions from visitor arrivals. Without a host-specific notification system, staff who need not have been interrupted by a visitor’s arrival end up being interrupted. As numerous studies show even a very small interruption can cause productivity loss of 15 minutes or more. Such lost time can ill be afforded by smaller businesses in particular.
