This week I have had two of the most surprising conversations I have ever had around visitor sign in books. We all know visitor sign in books because most of us at some stage would have been asked to sign into a visitor book when arriving at a business, factory or building.
Visitor sign in books date back way before I was even born. I remember many times looking through the book as I myself signed in to see who had signed in before me, always checking to see if one of my competitors had already been to present their products.
Visitor sign in books in general are not really that exciting, when the alarm goes off for a fire drill typically reception picks up the book and everyone runs outside. Once outside you can check off all the visitors and your job is done…..well not exactly….over the years people have started to realise when doing fire drills that many people are not being tracked via the visitor book.
How do we track employees, contractors, courier drivers and more. It is true the traditional visitor sign in book was exactly that…..a sign in book for visitors.
Move forward to today and electronic visitor management systems allow so much more information to be collected in preparation for planned fire drills and the unexpected emergencies. Electronic visitor management systems today can track visitors, contractors, employees, courier drivers and more.
What was so surprising I hear you say about my visitor sign in book conversations this week…..One customer with multiple locations told me on one very busy location they spent $4,000 for visitor sign in books that only lasted 6 months. A second customer made my jaw drop when he explained after completing an audit of the costs of his visitor sign in books for 3 locations that the cost for 12 months was in excess of $20,000. Sure the visitor sign in books were personalised for the company but wow….20k just for visitor sign in books.
