SwipedOn is an alternative to Traction Guest

SwipedOn and Traction Guest are visitor management systems, but overall SwipedOn is a better value for money alternative to Traction Guest.

While both brands have similar offerings on the surface - a secure digital sign-in solution hosted on a tablet at your welcome desk - they do have some key differences including price, feature-set and customization options. In this article, we take a closer look at how these two visitor management solutions differ from one another, to highlight those key differences and help you find the system that aligns with your business’ budget and feature needs.

Main differences between
SwipedOn & Traction Guest

Feature set

SwipedOn offers visitor screening , contactless sign in for visitors and employees and time-stamping allows for easy contact tracing.

SwipedOn also offers a contactless employee sign in solution; SwipedOn Pocket is a smartphone app for employees which allows them to sign in touch free and remotely. Evacuations are made easy with SwipedOn’s offline evacuation roll call feature.

Traction Guest also offers a touchless solution with emergency roll call view.


SwipedOn is a more cost-effective solution than Traction Guest. While SwipedOn offers plans which allow for multiple iPads in a single location, Traction Guest pricing is on a per iPad basis. If you have multiple entry points in a single location, you’ll need to pay for every iPad you use with Traction Guest, whereas with SwipedOn you can have multiple iPads in the same single location. Therefore, SwipedOn offers a better value-for-money solution.
