From paper visitor books to visitor management software, the process of visitor registration continues to evolve. With an ever-growing demand for speed and ease of use in visitor management technology, we continue to see an increase in touch screen visitor management solutions.
Touch screen applications are all around us. From self-serve supermarket checkouts to browsing store catalogues, we are now very familiar with touchscreen technology. There are numerous benefits associated with using touch screen systems in visitor management including not only improving the visitor experience, but also adding value to organisations who implement them.
Let’s look at these benefits in more detail:
Ease of Use
Many of us are well versed in using a keyboard and a mouse, however reaching out and touching icons on a screen has become more and more common. From the use of smart phones and tablets through to touchscreen ovens and coffee machines, the technology is all around us.
High levels of concentration and training are not required as well designed touch screens tend to be easy to follow, making their usage simple and efficient.
Touch screens save time by speeding up tasks. Using a mouse and keyboard is a lot slower than using a touch screen as users have to correlate mouse movement and clicks with interactions on the screen.
With a step-by-step touch screen and clear buttons, tasks can be completed more quickly, thereby speeding up your visitor registration process.
The introduction of a touch screen visitor management system can also have a positive impact on resources in a busy working environment. With touch screens taking care of the sign in process, staff simply need to hand over a badge to the visitor once it has been printed. This frees up busy reception staff to concentrate on greeting visitors and customer service instead of being preoccupied with visitor registration admin.
Touch screens allow you to set up systems in areas where there may be a lack of abundant space. They can be installed in confined areas, either wall mounted or placed on or near your reception desk, creating a professional first impression upon visitor arrival.
Unlike with a keyboard, where dirt, dust and moisture can accumulate, touch screens are easy maintained with an occasional wipe down.
Touch screens are also valuable in accommodating users with physical issues that might make a traditional mouse and keyboard setup difficult to use. Users with arthritis, for instance, may have difficulty manipulating a mouse or typing on a standard keyboard, making traditional computing tasks difficult. Directly accessing icons on a screen, however, may be much easier for a user with physical challenges, especially when paired with a stylus or other pointing device to enhance the interface.
In conclusion, it is clear to see why touch screen technology is becoming such a common part of our day-to-day lives. The demands for speed, ease of use and user engagement are driving the growth of touchscreen technology, products and services.
