    Pre-Screening all Personnel on Site

    Due to the strain COVID-19 has placed on organisations globally, it is now important to enhance security procedures for all personnel entering facilities, not just visitors. Along with a contactless workflow upgrade, screening questions before entry are now an integral part of managing all personnel entering your facility while maintaining a safe and secure working environment post-pandemic. 

    To ensure a full risk assessment before permitted entry to any facility, risk profiling with screening questions is the strongest way to prevent further spread of Covid-19 as we return to the workplace.

    Organisations will now need a secure way of monitoring every person who enters their facility post-pandemic to ensure the future stability of their organisation while there are restrictions still in place. 

    Before entering a facility, each expected visitor will be issued a series of questions alongside their visitor invitation relating to their health, travel, and recent contacts over the previous 14 days.


    Simple and Effective Self Check-In Process with TDS Visitor

    In order to provide your visitors, contractors and VIP guests with an enhanced visitor experience, TDS provide multiple visitor capture models to cater to your specific facility and security requirements, depending on the nature of your business, or size of your organisation. 

    All of TDS' secure solutions are designed to follow a user-centric principle with a focus on the user and their experience with the Visitor Management workflow when entering and exiting a building. Now, with COVID-19 being a prevalent issue when conducting everyday entry into buildings, adhering to government guidelines with hygiene, capacity control and risk profiling is increasingly becoming a necessity, globally. 

    TDS proudly provides customers with the option to decide and build their own custom hardware packages, in order to meet their specific security requirements, company vision and corporate values. All hardware options offer the same elegant, modern and intuitive user-interface that TDS has become known for. This device flexibility ensures a digital Visitor Management solution that is suitable for and can complement all office types. 


    Customised Visitor Badges Compatible with A Fully Contactless Workplace 

    The final stage of a Visitor Management solutions check-in process is badge printing. Regardless of whether a visitor pre-registers or completes the check-in on arrival, customised ID badges can be printed in seconds as part of a modern Visitor Management solution. In some cases where Access Control integrations have been made, ID badges can be scanned at control points to gain access to zones that have been configured to grant authorisation.

    When creating the badges for your company, the main question asked is what information is needed on the printed product. Normally, the standard information needed for these badges for proper execution is: first and last name of the visitor, your company's logo, a custom text labelling the person as a 'visitor', 'contractor', 'interviewee', etc., the name of the host and the date and time of the check-in. 


    Customise your badge further by displaying your companies logo on your badges! Add your companies logo to your kiosk or iPad to reinforce your brand and create a polished and professional first impression.

    Now with TDS' Pandemic Proof features for returning to work, visitor badges are fully contactless. The QR codes attached with visitor badges now are fully compatible with a contactless check-in procedure. 


    Achieve Full Health, Safety and Legal Compliance in the Pandemic Workplace

    With each industry governed by unique regulatory frameworks, organisations need to choose solutions that offer opportunities to digitally display and capture critical information before allowing visitors to complete their check-in process. In some cases, the signing of forms or agreeing of terms is required to provide an audit trail for compliance audits and internal investigations.

    The COVID-19 pandemic presented one of the biggest health and safety crises for global workplaces. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and throughout, TDS were at the forefront to support global organisations' return to work with confidence. Our goal has been to assist with an action plan to protect against the pandemic and effectively set best practices when reopening to protect your people, property, and assets.
