Jump straight to the “wrapping up” conclusion for a TL;DR
The ultimate goal of a visitor management system is to make it as easy as possible for people to sign-in, and get connected with the people they are there to visit. Ideally, even the least tech savvy visitors who are signing in for the first time should feel right at home with your sign-in process.
Here are some of the best visitor management apps on the market right now:
Questmate’s visitor management app lets you create a totally custom sign-in process where you can decide what kind of details you’d like guests to provide about themselves when they sign-in. You can also setup automatic notifications that lets hosts (and optionally front-desk staff) know when visitors have arrived.
You can all of the same basic visitor management activities (like setting up a kiosk-mode sign-in process and notifying hosts of guest arrival etc) for a fraction of the cost of most other visitor management solutions currently on the market. We’re not right for everyone however, so read on to find out what our competition does differently to us :)
You can use Questmate for so much more than visitor management. All of the features that apply to this use-case, can be reused in any custom workflow process you can think of, like daily standups, onboarding, deal flow closing and so much more!
Questmate’s visitor management app works across all of your devices out of the box. You don’t have to pair an iPad separately if you want to setup a self-service sign-in touch device (kiosk).
If there is a feature you would love to have that we don’t support natively yet, you can use our in-built escape hatch to code your own features.
Or you can tell us what you need and we can help you make it happen. In fact, most of our native features are created this way. First we use our escape hatch to ship new features extremely quickly (hours, not weeks!). Then the most useful get turned into native features. The rest live in our (soon to be) extensive QuestScript library in our help centre.
Try it out for yourself! The demo below is interactive 😉

A digital check in system handles the process of greeting guests, connecting them with their hosts, and in some cases reminds them when it’s time to check-out again. It’s more common now than ever before to use some kind of digital check in system for managing visitors to your workplace.
