Sine overview

What is Sine?

Sine is a visitor and contractor management software solution for recording all staff, visitor, and contractor check-ins, from small to large businesses. A multi-platform software, it is available on the web, iPad, and a mobile iOS and android app.

The online solutions allows businesses to maintain electronic records of all visitors, including personal information, photo ID, and the purpose of their visit. Automatic alerts via email, SMS, or app push allow hosts to know instantly when a guest checks in. Visitor types are customisable, and pre-registrations, invites, and csv uploads allow quick registration of large groups and staff. 



Sines inbuilt reporting and analytics dashboard provides detailed charts on visitor check-in and exceptions. Reports can be exported as a csv, and a automatic daily email. Users can accept or reject guests, and digital ID badges can be printed automatically. Time limited QR codes embedded in the badge allows for fast check-out or entry. Geo-fencing allows visitors to easily check-in via the mobile app, and reminds visitors to check-out upon leaving the site. Custom forms can be set for check-in and out, for everything from NDAs, inductions and electronic signatures to reminders to return all items. 



The solution integrates provides calendar, web hook and API integration, allowing verification of identities and registrations. Sine is found world wide and is trusted by large corporations such as Qantas, Vodafone, GE, Arup, and JLL.

We were looking for a local solution with better support when required, the support over the trial process was great, I was able to get answers to questions and was lots offered support to help me get going, with that in mind the setup was straight forward little support was needed. We looked at Sine with the view that we could use to check in/out staff at a later date (via the app), helping us keep track of who is on/off site in emergency situations, the SMS function is a great way to also assist here for unaccounted visitors

Pros
Simple to setup and get operational and simple to use from the end point, The App for signing in works a treat for our contractors, also the email alerts when their is an issue like the printer stops helps us be proactive to fix. overall very easy to setup and deploy Recommend checking it out.

Cons
Jump in price between the Medium and Enterprise, another level for "large" I feel would be a good idea. for now the medium plan works for us, so not an issue, bulk SMS is another feature I would like to see in the future

Pros
We've been using Sine for about six months now, and have mostly great reactions to report. The ease of use and universality of the iPad is one of my favorite things, as it didn't take much at all to get used to and the iPad could serve us multiple purposes. We have been utilizing the name badge printer on a daily basis as well. Sine has overall improved our visitor management and given us a much-needed peace of mind.

Cons
We do wish that the printer was more user-friendly; we can't connect it to our wi-fi since we require usernames and passwords, and therefore have had a harder time setting the printer up manually. Maybe in the future, colored badges would be an option, since the lighting isn't always the best and some of our black-and-white badges either wash out or appear too dark. In general, I will say Sine is very easy to use and the customer service is very responsive.

Overall Sine has been an incredible tool for our business, allowing us to tidy up our reception area and get rid of messy, time-consuming paperwork. I've been happy with the assistance I've received from staff and the system itself is excellent.

Pros
It is so easy to use. It's really helpful that the sign-in process is very self-explanatory so I don't have to spend time explaining to those who are not tech-savvy. I also loved how easy it was to set up. I thought it would be much harder but the process is very straight forward and the helpdesk is available on chat for any questions.

Cons
The only thing I don't like is that you cannot access a full list of visitors on site from within the app itself. This would make me feel more comfortable in the event of an emergency evacuation. At the moment you can only access this list via the web version, which requires prior knowledge. I would like this to be more obvious so that anyone could easily access this information.

Some people visiting say question in contractors field a bit complex - also floor level only allows level 1 entry details. Stylus pen does not work on panel well.

Pros
Its ok, but don't know why we still also have to fill in paper based registers as well. Doubling up of workload. Needs area for card numbers to be placed by visitors, so we can reconcile card audit at end of day.

Cons
Some people have put details in and when go to use it again details not there, so they have to restart again whole process. Seems to happen at times after a software update.

Response from Sine


Thanks for taking the time to review and provide some feedback, Warwick.
We don't provide stylus pens, but reach us at hello@sine.co and we'll gladly make some recommendations on the best options. :)
Provided your returning visitors use the same mobile or email on the returning visit, their details will be remembered and pre-populated; offering a fast check in experience.
Our scan and track function would make card allocations a lot easier for you. View this guide and let us know if it's of interest. https://help.sine.co/knowledge-base/scan-track/
Also, any existing paper based systems and registers can be incorporated into our system. Reach us any time via online chat, email or phone and we'll gladly discuss where we can help.

Very easy to implement and customise - highly rate how helpful the team was in getting this deployed quickly as part of our Covid response plan.

Everything works well. Some extra customisation would be nice but not essential.
