Effective communication is the key to creating a functional and collaborative work environment. Having a reliable way to communicate with your visitors allows you to form a relationship with them and ensure they have all the resources they need to execute their visit. Not only is communication with visitors important, but effective communication with your staff ensures that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities and is updated with company news and upcoming events.
Good communication is essential. With customizable notifications across many different platforms, LobbyFox has you covered.
Notify your staff when a visitor arrives through email, text messaging, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and more.
Quality communication in the workplace boosts employee engagement, morale, and productivity. With LobbyFox’s employee texting feature, it’s easy to keep your staff in the know. Automatically notify your staff when their visitor arrives, or a package has been delivered to them. Create custom notifications to remind all employees that open enrollment forms are due, notify an entire department that safety training is tomorrow or tell specific employees about payroll delays or shift changes. Keep your employees engaged in company news by sharing company milestones or recognizing outstanding employees' hard work.

Along with text and email notifications, LobbyFox offers many different integrations to keep you connected the way you prefer. For example, hosts can receive notifications through platforms like Slack and Microsoft Teams, with much more on the way! Keep your employee list up to date with our newest integration, Microsoft’s Active Directory.
With a Microsoft Active Directory integration configured and connected to your workspace, LobbyFox can import and update employee data directly from Active Directory.

In the unfortunate event that an emergency occurs at your facility, it’s critical to have a plan to rapidly notify everyone on your premises.
With our emergency notification system, you can easily send a custom or pre-programmed text message template to all of your facility and currently checked-in visitors. Create templates with instructions for different scenarios so they’ll be ready to go should you need them. Gain peace of mind with LobbyFox.
If your company is anything like ours, delivery drivers with packages or food are frequently in and out of the lobby throughout the day. Especially in offices that don’t have a receptionist, constant interruptions are a big problem. Drop-off notifications are a convenient way to make your facility more efficient for delivery drivers and employees. When visitors enter your lobby for a drop-off, they can simply select the drop-off button, type in the recipient's name, and be good to go! The recipient is notified that their order has been delivered, and employees who don’t host visitors can still receive drop-off notifications. Drop-off notifications save your employee time by not having to stop what they’re working on or deal with the hassle of managing a piled-up mailroom.Start Free Trial
Behind the scenes, we’ve built a powerful system that administrators can use to communicate with visitors via text message. Text individual visitors, certain visitor types, or everyone currently checked in at your facility!
Yes! If you have existing safety videos or documents we can serve those to visitors directly through the kiosk. If you don’t have a safety orientation in place already, we can help you create one! Read more here.
The LobbyFox check-in kiosk couldn’t be easier to use. When a visitor arrives at your facility, the kiosk instructs them to check in by using the touchscreen. LobbyFox asks them who they are, who they’re with, who they’re there to see, and what the nature of their visit is. At that point, a name badge is automatically printed for the guest, and their host (the employee they’re there to see) is notified via email, text, or both that they have a visitor in the lobby.
In combination with your restricted access lobby set-up, LobbyFox can accommodate all compliance regulation requirements for sign in and out, vetting and orientation, data collection, confidentiality, and record retention. All regulations have slightly different requirements so ask your sales rep for more information about your specific regulation!
Text blasts can be used to share information such as company announcements, reminders, birthdays, goal completion etc. See the Employee Engagement page for more information.
