Visitor and staff management-inventry
Not sure this is the right category but I thought I would share my thoughts on our new visitor and staff management system.
So this week we finally puchased and implemented inventry.
No more paper signing out, all digitally recorded and backed up in a secure cloud accessable from anywhere in the world over the web or iPad application.
Inventry can also be used for students too but at this stage we are not using it.
Early days yet but already It's been life changing for our receptionist. No hassle they just use the friendly interface of invetry to input their names etc, smile for a photo and off their identity badge prints.
There is a little work at the start to import all staff VIA csv and you can also import any regular visitor info including crb information.
It gets better. No more problems for the receptionist ringing every extension in school until they locate you, if the visitor is here to see you you are sent an email or sms (costs apply) with visitor name and picture letting you know they waiting in reception.
We have chosen to print out own I'd badges internally too through inventry, straight onto our door access cards with a. Option to have it done they them too.
I would definatley recommend it, its awesome. It's not overly expensive. We added a couple of add ons like an extra staff swipe point in another location and the printer to print our I'd badges.
The developers are extremely friendly and are happy to answer any questions.
Most importantly.... Ofsted love it.. it ticks all the safeguarding boxes.
Check it out..
