Pros
The best thing about this software is the customer support. It is superior and love the personal touch and that you are actually talking to someone live.

AB

Anne B.

The check in process is super important because that's like a first impression, so I love how we can customize it to certain visitors.

AM

Ashante M.

Super easy to setup and more cost-effective than the competitors. We tried Envoy and iVisitor and this is a better product.

DF

David F.

Cons
Our staff is now immediately notified with a delivery is made or a client presents for a session. No more checking the lobby a dozen times.

KH

Kendhal H.

It does not stick well to most fabrics to usually within a few mins the name tag is lost somewhere.

NV

Nicole V.

The only problems we've had, is when there is an apple update, the iPad is not compatible with the iPad Receptionist app. I have to continually delete and re-download the program and printer.

New receptionist customer - we have yet to experience all of the features but so far a great product

Reviewed 4 months ago

Communication in general with the sales/service team has been excellent. They responded quickly with any questions we may have and immediately provided support. Shoutout to [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and [SENSITIVE CONTENT] for providing great customer service!

Pros

The contact list and its accuracy is one of the strong points of this product. The other is the ability to integrate our Active directory. Although we have not use this product in a production environment just yet I have tested and piloted a few of the available features. I like that it is easy to customize and manage.

Cons

To be honest we haven't used it long enough to give a valid "con," we're currently waiting to move into our new office to pilot this product in a production environment.

Reduce lag time, this could be an effective product

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

Capture all visitors; prevents use of traditional sign-in sheet

Cons

There is a LONG lag time between questions, and it makes it difficult to register a heavy flow of traffic (job fairs, trainings, workshops). The software causes a crowd at the sign-in stand - thus creating a longer window to start events

Great platform for small or large business

Reviewed 7 months ago

One of the easiest platforms on the market, especially for a small business that is just getting familiar with implementing a visitor management system. The staff are very helpful and accommodated our needs as much as possible.

Pros

The setup layout is straightforward and easy to figure out and manage.

Cons

More customization for the button types. Wish we had the option to stop a visitor from registering upon check in and receive an instant notification if someone selected yes to a Covid-19 screening questions.

IT works for us!

Reviewed 6 months ago

The Receptionist notifies us via email when a client has arrived. It eliminates clutter in the hallways and having to run back forth to the lobby to see if someone has arrived.

Pros

This software is easily customizable to your practice and very easy to use. It is definitely less expensive than other products on the market.

Cons

There are plenty of features on this software that I feel we may be paying for that are never used. I'd love if we had the option to drop price if not using some of these features.
