Nice Visitor Tracking Application

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2018-10-09
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
This application is very light and can be installed easily. It is a very simple application using which we can track visitors and also check who is expected to visit on a particular day

Cons
There are no cons. This is a very small application and everything has be thought of

LISA The Receptionist

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2021-03-22
Review Source: Capterra

We do not have a permament receptionist at the factory. This job was givin to the customer service team who doen't have the time nor the joy to do it all the time... especially in a pendemic situation. The Receptionist software allowed us to automate the visitors and employees management experience. We no longer use the traditional paper log visible to everyone who visit the factory. We also increassed the security and health of our visitors and employees by using the touchless login.

Pros
We named our software LISA (Log In System Autonomous). What I like about this software is the simplicity to configure it to my specific needs despite it's limitations when it comes to foreign languages and multiple work shifts. Our factory is in the Fench province of Quebec CANADA. Once you figure out what it can and cannot do, you work around it and it does the job.

Cons
The foreign language option is limited.. meaning you have to personally sellect and translate all the text (painful). The other thing missing is the ablility for the visitor to phone call the person you want to meet with via The Receptionist... you need to use a third party application and if you aren't familiar with it yet... you will need the help of their customer support. That been said, when it works it is great and LISA The Receptionist comes to life.

Good and bad. Lacking features in specific areas.

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Ease of use and implementation. Very intuitive, best by far of the competition. Great at making the sign in process smooth for guests. Everything works as it should.

Cons
Feature Set and Customization. Other solutions have better ability to tweak features and modify from a plain vanilla solution. Every aspect could do with a few additional features to make the solution the ultimate virtual receptionist. Suggestions include: Ability to backdate checkout of guests in portal. Ability to receive notification if guest does not checkout by end of day or preset time. Ability to delete guests that are registered in device. Ability to block guests that have pre-registered and flag if guest attempts to re-register. Ability to send notifications on check out of guest. Ability to customize e-mail notification form and change sender address. Ability to fast sign in via phone OR e-mail address (make it customizable) Better layout for customizing visitor interface, what you see in portal is not always what you get. Ability to see how many times a guest has checked in previously by simply clicking on a previous visit. (Maybe more statistics)

Easy to use and looks professional

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Our clients are signing in with ease and we are being notified that they are in our lobby. It reduced the need to have a person "sitting" in the lobby.

Pros
The software is easy to set up and is very easy for our customers to use. The notification time is quickly and helps us to greet our clients quickly and without fuss

Cons
As of now, we are not finding anything we would change with the product.

Response from The Receptionist


Thank you so much for leaving such a wonderful review of our software, Melanie! I appreciate it, and I'm so happy to hear our system is helping you clear up some front office chaos!

Functionality for ABA Center

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

Overall experience has been great! I look forward to seeing more changes and options with this.

Pros
It is easy to use. It has a clean sleek appearance.

Cons
I would like for it to connect or for us to include information about our clients so caregivers can verify accuracy, report changes, etc. I would like to see a way this can be used for client sign in/out instead of staff clock in/out. Would like to ensure security features are in place for when we are using for families to sign in and out. There is so many other areas this could be used in.
