Something we’ve learned over the past couple of years is that the future can’t be predicted. Circumstances can change overnight, and new ways of working are continuously evolving. Mindsets have changed, working environments have changed, and the workplace today doesn’t look like it once did.
The distributed workforce is here. ‘The Great Resignation’ is still happening across the globe, and so consequently, hybrid working structures are being adopted by organisations in one way or another. Some companies are maintaining centralised offices alongside working from home, while others are utilising co-working spaces; some teams are now completely remote, working from all over the world.
Further to this, safety and wellbeing for both visitors and employees is now a bigger focus than ever. With ever-changing working environments and the distributed workforce being the norm, organisations need to be prepared for unexpected circumstances and as a result, there’s an increased demand for flexible tools to enable them to look ahead and adapt to change quickly while minimising risk and maintaining safe environments for employees and visitors alike. But traditional processes are no longer enough.
The VM 2.0 vision
Visitor management has come a long way in recent years. Visitor management and workplace safety are both constantly evolving and it’s no longer simply about replacing a paper sign-in book in your reception area. In today’s world, traditional visitor management doesn’t cut it when it comes to maintaining safety, meeting the demands of the current workplace and being prepared for the future.
We are now seeing organisations implementing systems that are not only solving today’s demands on the workspace, but are flexible enough to adapt to new challenges of the future – systems that combine multiple solutions into one.
Visitor management is transitioning to workspace management. It looks at streamlining and modernising the workplace experience beyond physical thresholds; giving organisations the intuitive technology they need to guarantee safer environments and keep remote and hybrid workforces effortlessly organised and running smoothly.
Our VM 2.0 vision is why we formed Sign In Solutions and it redefines safety and risk mitigation in the workplace. VM 2.0 goes beyond traditional visitor management and focuses on reducing risk while changing the norms of the everyday workplace.
Through our solutions, businesses are given real-time visibility and insight, allowing them to better anticipate, plan and manage the modern workforce and enabling them to better understand visitor intent before they even step through the door.
