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.

Key benefits of using Sine

• Sine supports multiple communication channels allowing businesses to communicate visit information to both host and the visitor via standard text message, email or through in-app notifications.

• Businesses can create & print a live visitor evacuation list for all their units from a single location and share it with the site inspector during a drill session or real emergency situation.

• The administrator can fully customize logos, backgrounds and check-in procedures from a central account.

• Businesses can generate QR codes or barcodes for their visitors to automate their check-in process and to eliminate manual data entry at multiple entry gates.

• Visitors can sign NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) digitally, view fire evacuation plans or safety exists and chose check-in processes according to the requirements of their business.

• Sine offers mobile apps for iOS and Android devices to help users view live activity, receive notifications and customize the set-up from anywhere.

Pros
Basic functionality of letting new users check in, notification to host of visitor and issue of a badge. The ability for previous visitors to log in using facial recognition is pretty great.

Fast, comprehensive, friendly customer service. It is refreshing to colloborate with external partners where it feels positive.

BB

Brenton B.

Easy to setup, easy to use. The photo recognition is the best idea, it make signing very quick and easy.

JV

Johan V.

Cons
Emergency evacuation – this is quite ambiguous. If we have access to WiFi & power we can print out active passes however this may not always be possible in an emergency.

JT

Jayne T.

We recently had problems with the label machine and it will at time not communicate with the iPad and printing will delay or not work.

JB

Photo quality is terrible and everyone complains about it when they get their photo taken.

Great product

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

Feeling safer already!

Reviewed 3 years ago
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.

Review - MDC.

Reviewed 5 years ago

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.

Vendor response

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. Full support page via https://help.sine.co/

My Review for Sine

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

What I like the most about Sine is its facial recognition feature that allows the user to identify the visitors without the need of presenting valid proof of identification. I also love its geo-fencing capability to ensure that all visitors are within the vicinity of the building, ensuring their safety at the same time. Finally, it has a user-friendly interface, enabling users like me to utilize the software in its best potential.

Cons

Despite its facial recognition feature, the software produces very unclear copies of photos. I have also noticed that it consumes a lot of power, draining my phone instantly when in use.

Easy setup and great functionality

Reviewed 2 years ago

Sine have been good to work with on initial setup and are easy to reach when needed. I have been disappointed that they dismiss our dashboard requirements as this is functionality that is standard with every other offering I have used.

Pros

Very quick and easy to setup. Interface looks good and i've found functionality to be better than the alternatives.

Cons

We need a customer visible dashboard to display number of people on-site which Sine cannot do and they don't have it on their roadmap. Talking to them about adding this basic functionality has not yielded positive results.
