Welcm is a Visitor Management System made up of three separate apps: a visitor-facing Virtual Reception, an online Dashboard and a staff companion app. The Dashboard is accessed via your web browser, the Virtual Reception is available as an iPad app and the companion app is available for iPhone. The Virtual Reception greets your visitors, delivery personnel and staff with an intuitive sign in system. The Dashboard allows you to manage your reception more effectively and customise your Virtual Reception. The companion app provides a number of useful features for you staff.
Welcm will provide a number of benefits to organisations of all sizes, regardless of industry.
Visitors, staff and couriers can all sign into a building using the iPad virtual reception. Features such as photo capture and badge printing can be enabled as part of the sign in process. All collected data is stored securely in your browser-based admin portal / dashboard. Notifications are sent to hosts once their visitor has signed in.
The virtual reception app requires an iPad Air or newer model. The 9.7", the 11" and the 12.9" iPads are all compatible. The web app works on all modern browsers. The companion app is compatible with iPhones running iOS version 11 or newer. We recommend the Brother QL-820NWB for badge printing and support 4 paper types. Other iPad compatible Brother printers will also work.
Absolutely! Welcm helps you through every step of your setup and requires no specialist technical skills. If you can use a computer and a tablet you already know how to use Welcm.
We treat your data very carefully. In depth information can be found in the small print section of our website. With the removal of your paper sign in book there is also no more salespeople thumbing through your visitors’ details seeing which companies have visited which hosts!
No! Your visitor management system dashboard is accessed via your web browser. This means that if you have an internet connection you can manage Welcm. Whether you’re in the office, at home or on the train… just please don’t use it in the car (unless you’re a passenger)!
This is an iPad that you install in your reception area. It is what visitors, staff and couriers use to sign into your building.
A Host is a member of staff whom visitors can select on the Virtual Reception device. Not every member of staff has to be a host so, for example, if your CEO does not want to be shown on the Virtual Reception she or he does not have to be.
A Visitor is anyone who arrives at your reception area excluding members of your staff. They may be someone attending a pre-arranged meeting, a courier, your lunch delivery service, a salesperson, an interviewee or any ad-hoc guest.
A User is any member of staff who is given access to your system. We recommend all staff members have access to Welcm as they can manage their profile and visitors from the system (coming soon). We have a range of easy-to-manage user permissions so you can make sure each member of staff only has access to the parts of the system they need.
Simply put, a Location is your office. If you are from a geographically dispersed organisation with several offices in different places you have several locations but you will still only need a single Welcm account.
A Notification is a message that lets a member of staff or a department know that someone has arrived for them in reception. These are all sent automatically by your Virtual Reception.
Receptionists are some of the busiest employees in a high footfall office and have many more duties than registering visitors, notifying staff of a visitor’s arrival and handling deliveries. If those elements of their role can be removed they are free to concentrate on more valuable tasks and can provide a higher level of customer service to your visitors when required.
“Hello. I’m here to see Jon”. “Erm… he’s not at his desk. Hang on please… has anybody seen Jon?”. If you don’t employ a receptionist everybody within earshot is distracted and loses focus on their work for a few minutes. Then of course if you do have a receptionist someone who is paid to do other work has to manage the reception area at lunch time or when your receptionist has time off . These and other problems are removed when Welcm takes control of your reception area.
Absolutely! Increases in productivity, automation of time-consuming tasks and less time wasted all saves your business money. The average salary for a receptionist is around £20,000 so you can expect to save over £18,000 every year on salaries alone. That’s not to mention that Welcm never takes time off nor does it need a lunch break!
Absolutely! With the Welcm Visitor Management System you can add your logo, add background images and change the welcome message displayed on your Virtual Reception.
