When choosing a visitor management system, the highest priority for Columbus Chemical Industries was security. Due to the nature of chemical manufacturing, along with general health and safety concerns, knowing what visitors are in the building in the event of an emergency evacuation situation was of utmost importance.
The biggest reason for the company to choose SwipedOn was because it was best suited to the Columbus Chemical’s industry and is user friendly. And the real benefits of SwipedOn shine through with the easily accessible list of visitors for evacuation purposes (simply shake the iPad to activate!). Not only that, but Bridget is easily able to look back through the records at when people came in and have reports on demand for higher management.
After implementing SwipedOn Bridget reported that she had better visibility over the visitor flow and the ability to provide reports on visitor movements when necessary, further commenting “each host gets an email with the visitor picture knowing that they arrived to see them. It is great! All of our visitors are impressed with implementation of this visitor management and how easy it is to use. I'm so glad we can print picture ID labels.”
The three key features that Columbus Chemical Industries benefit from are easy visitor sign in, customizable design and evacuation mode. Being a chemicals company, evacuations are a reality and could be frequent so it’s really important that this easily addressed with a quick and efficient solution.
