Visitor Management Systems: Choosing the Right Check-In Kiosk

Determining which check-in kiosk is right for your manufacturing facility is about more than its features and benefits. First impressions matter and your visitors should feel welcome and accommodated. Your visitors need to be able to easily identify what to do upon arrival and how they should check-in. A visitor management kiosk needs to be eye catching, self explanatory and it needs to work accurately every time. The hardware needs to accommodate your lobby, visitors, and meet your needs.

Considering Your Lobby Layout: Kiosk & Mounting

When visitors arrive in your lobby, what is the natural flow of traffic? Oftentimes, improper hardware selection produces the wrong result and the sign-in kiosk isn’t used. Knowing how your lobby is structurally laid out allows us to offer the appropriate types of hardware. In our experience with manufacturing facilities, we’ve seen a vast variety of lobbies and we offer equipment options to accommodate them all.

Lobbies with reception desks were common in the past but today the receptionist is gone and the front door is locked.  The visitor often stays in a glass vestibule, uses doorbells or intercoms to notify staff, and waits to be let in.  Because this affects the productivity of the staff responsible for answering the door, we’d want to eliminate this process. Using a freestanding floor stand, a LobbyFox kiosk can be placed in the glass vestibule allowing visitors to check themselves in.

Do those visitors walk to a reception window that has a ledge with a log book on it? That ledge is a great place for a countertop kiosk. Is that ledge hanging under a wall and not a window? Maybe it’s a great place for a countertop kiosk OR a wall mount kiosk?

If there is no main focal point or traffic pattern, we can utilize the wall and mount a kiosk in a size appropriate for the room. Screens range in sizes from 10.5-55” so large ceilings with lots of empty space or a tiny room with nowhere to turn can be accommodated.
