A visitor management system is any method of recording and logging information about those who visit your property. The purpose of a visitor management system is to protect those on your property from unwanted visitors.
A paper log is an example of a visitor management system. Writing down visitors’ names and other information is quick and efficient, but it’s not the optimal method for keeping your property and those on it safe. You can’t track the visitors when you simply write down their names and other information. Plus, the information isn’t kept confidential when it’s in a paper log.
Electronic visitor management systems provide more robust and efficient access control than paper logs.

When you choose a VMS from MCA, you can capture detailed information of a visitor that you can use to keep those on your property safe. The data you capture is up to you. The VMS software is pre-set but allows you to:
Create and manage your own lists and allow selected visitors to have customized card access directly from the Secure Visitor Management interface. The VMS integrates with more than 40 of the leading access control systems.
The VMS solution from MCA also includes options to make the visitor registration process more efficient. You can choose to register visitors by scanning their information yourself. Or you can choose for visitors to register themselves in a registration kiosk.
You can streamline the process even further by using pre-registration or self-registration options via the internet or corporate intranet. You can also choose for visitors to require approval for even greater access control.
The VMS from MCA allows you to add visitors to watch lists and check to see if visitors appear on existing lists. Import employee lists from any Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) database or Active Directory with auto scheduling and updating. The software also allows you to check your visitors against felony and sex offender watch lists. You’ll receive an alert on the screen, by email, or through text if any such visitor enters your facility. You can also create your own watch lists to screen for unwanted visitors.
The visitor management solution from MCA allows you to manage visitors from a single application, but you’re not limited to only one location. You can change from a single check-in station to as many as you need to provide optimal access control. Regardless of how many stations you need, all stations can share a central database.
