EntrySign for education

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 primary and secondary schools, nurseries and colleges 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.

EntrySign free-standing kiosks

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 school/college/academy logo or branding to the front of the kiosk if desired.

School MIS integration

EntrySign™ integrates with many popular school management information systems including Capita SIMS, Bromcom MIS, Scholarpack, Progresso, Arbor 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. We also support MIS integration to many other school management systems via Wonde.

If you do not wish to integrate directly with an MIS you can also import staff and students quickly and easily using CSV files or by using our free Active Directory integration.

Use your existing ID cards and/or fobs

Where customers already have a contactless technology in use (e.g. for access control, cashless catering, library systems or managed print solutions), we can in most case utilise your existing cards or fobs. Supported technologies include Mifare, Paxton, HID, Indala and many 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!).

We also 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.

Paxton door access control integration

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.

Entering your Net2 server details into EntrySign allows it to create users within the Net2 environment automatically, or vice-versa 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 card numbers in Net2 automatically from EntrySign.

Education customers who use a compatible MIS can utilise EntrySign to bridge the gap between the MIS and your access control system, reducing administration time.

For convenience, EntrySign can also release designated doors automatically when people sign in or out, and can also utilise real-time clocking data from your Paxton system to sign people in and out automatically on EntrySign when they enter and leave the building using Paxton readers or keypads.

* minimum Paxton Net 2 software version required - please contact us for further details.
