What is Firelist and why it is a must-have for your organization?

Crisis management at work

Technologies, like guest registration software, are slowly evolving to bridge the accountability gaps in cases of evacuation, helping emergency responders tackle crisis situations more efficiently in the ever-growing vertical cities.

The Veris “Firelist” feature is one tool that expedites roll calls during fire hazards. The administrator or firefighters can check whether all staff and visitors have left the building. It can also help find specific areas or last known whereabouts of employees and visitors to ensure that no one is stuck inside the premises.

Amidst all the chaos and confusion during times of crisis, the last thing anyone wants to do is sift through the pages of a visitor logbook to check who might be present.

Workflow of the Firelist feature

Can the Visitor Management System Assist in crisis situations?

What if there is a fire or an earthquake? Do you have a system that tells you who is present in the building and who needs to be evacuated? Does it allow you to notify everyone quickly? During times of emergency, the accuracy and speed with which you evacuate the premises could mean the difference between life and death.

Let’s look at a smart visitor management system that allows you to create file lists. The Visitor Management System has records of everyone present on the premises at every point in time. It can automatically send out evacuation notices to the mobile phones of visitors and employees, ensuring quick evacuation.

Another area where such a system can help raise red flags regarding specific visitors. Any visitors deemed a security threat to the organization can then be blacklisted. Once someone is on the blacklist, they cannot check into your premises via the system or have visitor badges printed. So, no amount of bribery, coercion, or personal relationships need to get in the way of protecting your organization and its physical and intellectual property.

Your visitor management software is the first touch point for guests. It should allow you to reflect your brand identity while streamlining and easing the entire process for all stakeholders. Smart visitor management systems like Veris that require minimal effort on your part to deploy within the organization can help you streamline footfall within your premises, whether it is from employees or guests. In addition, it allows you to manage multiple locations via a single dashboard, easing the admin and security processes. So, next time you consider digitizing your visitor process, use these questions and choose the one that is your visitor management system’s match made in heaven.
