EntrySign records the attendance of staff, visitors and contractors. In educational establishments EntrySign also records pupil & student movements. The easy-to-use Back Office Suite allows you to monitor who is in the building at all times, look-up historical information, generate detailed reports and activate an instant evacuation roll call in seconds.
Does your current visitor management process allow you to easily identify if a particular person has ever visited your site?
Do you know exactly who is on site at any point in time, either right now or on a specific date in the past?
If you had EntrySign, the answer to both of these questions would be yes. You can quickly and easily look up historical data and even view photographs of your visitors and contractors.
One of the first things your visitors will see upon arrival will be your sign-in process, whether that is currently a digitial or paper-based system.
Entrysign provides a self-contained touchscreen which visitors use to enter their details.
The screen is fully customised with your logo, colour scheme and any slogans/mottos meaning that your organisations image and identity is reinforced as soon as visitors arrive.
EntrySign reduces administration by replacing traditional paper-based books which are often found on reception desks.
Processes for signing people into your organisation can be made much quicker and efficient with EntrySign. Expected visitors can be pre-booked for an efficient sign-in process using optional QR-codes.
Listed below are some of the most popular features within EntrySign - click the tiles to see more information.
This is not an exhaustive list and customers may choose which options they want displayed on their front screen.
EntrySign™ brings together all of the paper-based health and safety and auditing systems that you will currently use in to one unique and easy to use digital system.
Improve safeguarding in your school by having live, up to the minute visibility of who is on site and a wealth of information and reports just a click away.
Staff, pupils and students, authorised visitors such as school governors, supply teachers or peripatetic teachers and even contractors can all sign in and out using dedicated options on the touch screen, and the EntrySign back office suite can track CRB/DBS dates and other essential information.
Join the many schools in the UK and across the world who have chosen EntrySign as their new visitor management system. Each school has it's own front screen design to match their school branding, logo and colour schemes for that personalised touch.
Above: our new EntrySign kiosk is perfect for schools, colleges & nurseries who are looking for an easy to use signing in system for visitors, staff and pupils.
EntrySign™ integrates with many popular school management information systems including Capita SIMS, Bromcom MIS, Scholarpack and RM Integris making administration simple and automating the process of importing staff and pupils into the visitor management system.
Where the MIS allows, EntrySign™ can even write back to the MIS allowing pupil late marks to be entered or updated automatically including calculating the minutes late inline with your school's attendance policy.
If your school uses a different MIS which we don't currently support, then our developers would be happy to talk with your MIS provider about integration. You can also import staff and students quickly and easily using CSV files or by using our free Active Directory integration.
The EntrySign™ system has many benefits and features designed to enhance and improve your health and safety procedures and has received universal praise from large companies and public sector organisations through to small and medium sized private businesses.
If you have an unattended reception area, EntrySign can ensure you still have a professional front-of-house for your visitors and deliveries with functions specifically designed for this purpose and notifying you staff by email when visitors sign-in or delivery men and couriers are waiting in reception.
EntrySign is now used in many business, enterprise and corporate environments including offices, warehouses and factories, shopping centres, and government organisations such as the NHS and Fire & Rescue services.
Administration is simple: quickly and easily import your staff from CSV files, or automate this with your corporate network using our free Active Directory integration.
Here are just a small selection of the many companies & organisations who are using EntrySign...
In addition to tracking visitors and contractors, residential and care homes also need to record details of residents who leave the facility with family and friends for visits, days out etc.
EntrySign™ provides an easy to use alternative to traditional paper-based books frequently used for this purpose, at the same time improving both health & safety and efficiency.
All information is stored in a real-time database allowing to quickly and easily see who is on site (staff, visitors, contractors) at any time and lookup historical movements by date, visitor or resident.
Our events feature allows you to quickly create an event, and optionally pre-book delegates into the event. You can customise the sign-in options for each event allowing you to create a minimalist, speedier sign-in process.
Delegates can sign-in using QR codes for an even faster sign-in, or alternatively pick their names from the list of pre-booked attendees.
After the event, you can easily see who attended, and what time they arrived. If your delegates are required sign-out you can also see how long they spent at the event.
The EntrySign™ ID card bolt-on allows you to use RFID cards to sign in and out quickly and easily by simply presenting the card to the contactless reader. Cards can be issued to staff, authorised visitors, students or approved contractors as required.
We offer a cost-effective card printing service where we can design and print your customised ID cards and usually despatch these to you for next delivery.
If you already have a contactless technology in use (e.g. for access control, or cashless environments), we can in most case utilise your existing cards or fobs. Supported technologies include Mifare, Paxton, HID, Indala and more!
Our multi-format readers support most contactless card technologies, and if you're not sure what technology you have at present, our technical team can analyse your cards or fobs before purchasing to ensure they're supported (they usually are!).
If you prefer to print your own ID cards in-house, our optional card printing bolt-on makes this easy.
Cards can be printed directly from the EntrySign back office suite which means there's no need to repeatedly input names, job descriptions and other information into other systems or software to produce your cards.
We can supply a complete solution including a high quality card printer, but if you already have a printer EntrySign is compatible with most other card printers. Our designers will even produce your card template if required.
We can also supply your consumables, such as printer ribbons, blank cards, lanyards and other ID accessories, so please contact us with your requirements.
* Currently available only in version 4 and will be available in version 5 in the near future.
Simple to use and clear, EntrySign LIVE provides evacuation and roll-call functionality from any internet connected devices such as iPads, tablets, phones and even laptops.
Using our new web-app you can quickly and easily see exactly who is on your site at any time from anywhere in the world, and initiate an evacuation roll call instantly with the very latest data synchronised from your local EntrySign system to the cloud.
EntrySign LIVE is an electronic equivalent to traditional paper-based evacuation reports and provides a clear, easy to read overview of people who are signed in to your site organised by type (e.g. visitors, staff, contractors, pupils etc.). Interactive roll-call functionality allows you to check people off, marking them as safe and provides an overview of who has been accounted for, and a clear visual indication of any persons who haven't.
EntrySign LIVE is an optional service available to customers on an annual subscription basis.
EntrySign™ integrates with Paxton Net2 access control systems so if you already have a Net2 door access control system EntrySign is the perfect addition for a truly integrated solution.
Enter your Net2 server details into EntrySign and it will create users within the Net2 environment at the push of a button so you don't need to repeatedly input the same details into seperate systems. If your Paxton system is using Mifare cards, you can even update the card numbers in Net2 automatically.
For education customers who use a compatible MIS, EntrySign can bridge the gap between this and your access control system.
EntrySign can also release your doors automatically when certain types of people sign in or out.
Our self-contained kiosks offer an innovative and attractive alternative to the conventional desk or wall mounted solution, with all the comprehensive features of EntrySign.
Completely self-contained with integrated RFID reader for use with contactless cards or fobs and optional QR reader for rapid acquistion - just one power and one data point is required for the entire solution. Multiple kiosks can be connected together to provide multiple sign in points for a single centralised system.
EntrySign kiosks are designed to be free standing with no physical install required, but they can be secured to the floor if required using the supplied fixing kit.
Kiosks are supplied in white or black as standard, and are available in any other colour to order.
We can also add your logo or branding to the front of the kiosk if desired.
