It’s a complaint which is if not exactly as old as time, definitely as old as contracting as a professional concept: overpaying contractors due to inefficient time tracking and management on the part of the contractor’s client. It may not be something that you spend a lot of time thinking about, but of course when the client in question happens to be your business, then it is a different kind of situation altogether. No one likes overpaying for the service they receive from a contractor – and as a business […]

There are a lot of different opinions about this, ranging from choosing the right guest speakers or entertainers, having various educational or entertainment opportunities available – and some people will even tell you that having a successful event depends on the little things like catering and decoration. While these are all good answers, they’re also all wrong. The secret to a successful event is planning well and managing the preparations for the event effectively before, during and afterward. It’s really as […]
Unfortunate as it is, we live in a world where not everyone you’re going to meet means well. As individuals, we all need to be conscious of our safety, including taking note of our surroundings, especially with regard to the people around us. When you manage a facility which receives visitors on a regular basis or is otherwise open to the public, you have to be especially vigilant about security. This is why every such facility needs to have a visitor management system in place which lets the people in […]
Unless someone starts building everything out of indestructible materials, there will always be a need for contractors and maintenance workers at residential and commercial buildings of all kinds. Of course, even if there were no need for repair, renovations and maintenance, there would still be courier services and other workers delivering packages and the like; which means that if you manage a building, campus or corporate facility of any kind, contractor management software is an essential part of your overall visitor management system.
Planning and managing any kind of event calls for a lot of work, especially project management work. Sure, there are a million things to do and each of these tasks is work in itself, but it’s keeping things going smoothly towards your goal of a successful event by keeping track of the big picture which is generally regarded as the biggest challenge. It’s never easy, but when you have sophisticated event management software working for you, it can be a lot less of a headache than you’d expect.
Have your reception or other front desk staff ever lost track of a visitor? It can and does happen from time to time, especially when you’re relying on an outmoded visitor management system like a paper log book to keep track of arrivals and departures. Most of the time, it’s not a serious incident – the visitor simply got off on the wrong floor or took the wrong turn down a hallway. At worst, in these cases the visitor may simply be late for their appointment or meeting in your […]
If your business or organization sees a large number of people coming in or out of its facilities on a regular basis, you need to have an effective visitor management system in place. These people could be staff members, visitors, students or more to the point, contractors. After all, your employees are people you expect to see – but unfamiliar or infrequent visitors are much more likely to be a concern for your organization.
There are a lot of different organizations which plan and host events of all types. These events may be anything from sales meetings to corporate retreats, awards ceremonies to graduations, sporting events to seminars. Whatever the nature of the event, there are a lot of things to take care of before, during and after the event, as you know all too well if you’ve ever borne the responsibility for making sure that an event goes smoothly.
There are a lot of different things to consider in the area of event management. There are a million details to plan for and take care of along the way, not the least of which is making sure that you can keep track of exhibitors and attendees and route them to where they need to be efficiently and on time. It’s a big job, but when you choose the right event management software to assist you, it can seem a little less overwhelming.
Security is something that we’re all concerned about. Whether you are the owner or manager of a business which receives visitors on a regular basis, the management company in charge of an office building with many people going in and out daily or an educational or cultural facility which sees a nearly constant stream of visitors, keeping your facilities safe and secure for employees and visitors alike depends largely on knowing who is coming through your door and when.
