Main differences between
SwipedOn & WhosOnLocation

Feature set

Both SwipedOn and WhosOnLocation offer features such as touchless check in, multi-language kiosk, visitor badge passes, instant notifications and customization for the welcome screen on the iPad but overall SwipedOn is easier to use.

SwipedOn 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 and offers the ability to ask employee screening questions to meet compliance needs. The feature is also accessible as a digital employee in/out board on the iPad. WhosOnLocation offers the WolMobile app for employees to sign in/out.

Evacuations are made easy with SwipedOn's offline evacuation roll call feature which accounts for everyone who has signed into the premises including all visitors and employees. With location settings, multi-location businesses are able to customize visitor agreements and branding per location.


The SwipedOn pricing structure is based on features and size of business to ensure customers receive the best value for money possible. With three plans to choose from, SwipedOn starts from $49 USD per month for the Starter plan and offers unlimited sign in/out movements.
However, the most basic plan for WhosOnLocation starts at $55 USD per month and is based on visitor and employee sign in/out movements. Offering a total of four plans, all other WhosOnLocation plans are upwards of this figure.


SwipedOn includes Microsoft AD and Azure AD as part of its enterprise plan. While WhosOnLocation offers an impressive list of integrations, it is not clear whether these are included in all plans or come at an additional cost.
