SwipedOn is a great alternative to Villo

Villo and SwipedOn are visitor and employee management systems, but overall SwipedOn has a wider feature set, which is actively being enhanced, and is a great alternative to Villo.
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 visitor flows, employee roaming, automated vaccine pass verification and reporting. In this article, we take a closer look at how these two workplace sign in 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
Villo & SwipedOn

Feature set

Visitor screening, contactless sign in and time stamping for all visitor and employee sign in/out allow you to protect your workforce against potentially high risk visitors. Should the need arise, contact tracing is available at the touch of a button.
SwipedOn also offers a convenient sign in solution for employees; SwipedOn Pocket is a smartphone app for employees which allows them to sign in touch free and remotely from home or across all locations. Evacuations are made easy with SwipedOns offline evacuation roll call feature which accounts for all visitors and employees who have signed into the premises. With visitor flows you can request documents or automatically verify vaccine passes based on visitor categories.

Villo offers an iPad sign in solution as well as an employee sign in app. However the app does not allow for employee roaming or remote sign ins. There is no ability to upload documents on sign in or automated verification of vaccine passes.


SwipedOn offers the ability to report on all visitors and employees who enter and exit your premises, and with a dedicated ‘contact tracing’ button located in the web dashboard, a report is automatically generated should the need occur to carry out contact tracing.
Villo offers reports that allow you to view and filter your visitor logs only.

Notifications & Alerts

SwipedOn supports instant email and SMS notifications which are sent to the host (employee) when a visitor has signed in to see them. Visitor screening questions allow you to screen all visitors and employees entering your premises, to ask simple yes/no questions. If they select the answer that requires approval from an admin, the admin is immediately notified.
Villo allows you to ask visitor screening questions and notify employees to let them know that a visitor has arrived, however they don't offer the ability to approve or reject visitors based on these answers.
