Jump straight to the “wrapping up” conclusion for a TL;DR

Visitor Management Apps 🐧🐧🐧

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:

  1. Questmate
  2. Envoy
  3. SwipedOn
  4. Sine
  5. Greetly

#1. Questmate

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 set up automatic notifications that let hosts (and optionally front-desk staff) know when visitors have arrived.

Questmate benefits


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 :)

Do more with less

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!

Works across all devices out of the box

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 set up a self-service sign-in touch device (kiosk).

Build your own features with our built-in escape hatch

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 center.

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, reminding 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.
