Effective visitor management means greater security — it’s that simple. And Genea has just made things a lot more secure. As of March 2021, Genea Visitor Management will feature three customizable tools to better regulate and monitor foot traffic in and out of the workplace. The three additions include:
“Watchlist was the most commonly asked-for feature from the moment we rolled out our Visitor Management solution,” stated Matija Abicic, Product Manager at Genea. “Even before the launch of Visitor Management, as we talked to existing and prospective customers, it was something that would come up in every single conversation.”
Whether its a client arriving on-site, a delivery driver, prospective employee, or caterer, visitors are inevitable. With this in mind, Genea designed Watchlist to smooth the process from sign-in to suite by improving property management-tenant communication. When a visitor checks in, administrators receive an instant notification. They can then greet their guest in the lobby without trying to guess their arrival time.
Blocklist for Visitor Management empowers administrators with a fast and easy way to block visitor access to their facilities. By adding the names of unwanted visitors, blocklist keeps tenants out. Therefore, you will know exactly who has access to the building at all times.
Visitor Invite Restrictions
In addition to Blocklist, administrators can restrict specific access groups from creating or altering visitor invitations. This feature helps businesses follow The Principle of Least Privilege (POLP). As a rule-of-thumb, POLP states that permissions should only be shared with personnel requiring the permissions to perform their job. Subsequently, by minimizing invite permissions, teams can keep unwanted foot traffic away from the facility.
“As user adoption of Visitor Management grows, so does the desire for new, advanced features,” Abicic stated. “As we anticipated, offering users more capabilities empowers them to tackle more complex challenges. Genea is constantly improving our products and helping customers tackle those challenges.”
