2020 has been a year of significant change for the security and technology world due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, organisations have had to completely rethink how their everyday workplace environment works and if all measures have been put into effect to keep their employees safe.
2020: A Year of Change for Digital Visitor Management Solutions
Throughout 2020, effectively managing and monitoring third-party guests has become a priority for businesses globally. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that all organisations now need to rethink the secure processes they had previously put in place for all personnel entering and exiting each facility, not just their visitors. With the impact of the pandemic on global organisations, companies no longer have an option when it comes to efficient visitor management. It has become a necessity and an essential tool for a safe workplace.
An Enhanced Future for Visitor Management Solutions in 2021
2021 will bring new and exciting opportunities for the security and Digital Visitor Management industry with further enhanced features and solutions, particularly with the strengthened protection of digital workplace solutions.
Moving into 2021, it is now clear to global enterprises where their security priorities must lie. Digital Visitor Management solutions for global organisations are no longer an option, but a necessity. 2020 brought about unpredictable and unprecedented times for all businesses. 2021 in comparison will be fully equipped for any such unprecedented event that comes its way.
How Visitor Management Has Evolved Ahead of 2021
Digital Visitor Management solutions are now the first line of defence for all organisations for 2021. There's now an increased need for organisations to integrate security into their everyday operations, the prevalent reason being the new COVID-19 restrictions implemented throughout 2020. Investing in a digital security system will now protect your business' daily operations and fully ensure the safety of all employees.
The digital security industry has fully evolved and expanded its capabilities throughout 2020, particularly in the world of Visitor Management. All of these positive changes and enhancements to secure workplaces will continue and improve as we prepare for another transformation in 2021 when making a full return to work.
New and Expansive Solution Integrations and Features
Almost all visitor management solutions on the market today come stacked with a host of integrations and features to address visitor needs. However, only a select few features generally associated with a brand, differentiate them from the rest of the competition.
Product and software upgrades will become increasingly important when it comes to Visitor Management solutions. Upgrades are important to keep systems updated with new technology and new integrations that are made available.
Some of the solution features which have been developed throughout 2020 to aid in compliance with COVID-19 restrictions, help develop new workplace conditions and prepare organisations for a full return to work include Custom Alert Notifications, Contactless Check-In Experiences, Pre-Screening and Contact Tracing Functionalities.
Making a Fresh Start in 2021: What to Expect
All Digital Visitor Management providers are continually working to improve their digital security solutions to cater to all your workplace front-of-house requirements.
While the existing features developed throughout 2020 have set organisations up for a fully secure return to work, 2021 is expected to be a year of further growth and enhancement within the industry. Expected feature updates expected in 2021 may include: Expanding Integrations, a Virtual Reception, Event Management, Parcel Management, Further Automation and Streamlined Processes, Improved Contactless Processes, and Fully Mobile-Oriented Check-In's.
