Benefits of Visitor Check-In Tools during Covid-19 Pandemic

Free Contactless Visitor Tracing Tool

Whether you’re welcoming customers to your bar, clients to your offices, or away teams to your sports club; a Visitor Check-In Tool is essential for helping to support Test and Trace during the Covid-19 pandemic.

With infection rates rising and a “second wave” of Covid-19 potentially on the way – we all need to do what we can fight back against the coronavirus.

Here’s why you should consider using a Visitor Check-In Tool.

What is a Visitor Check-In Tool?

A Visitor Check-In Tool is a digital system that helps you take the details of visitors to your premises during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Visitor Check-In Tool allows you to capture their names and contact details.

If someone tests positive for Covid-19 that has been in your premises, you have a database of people and can then pass the details on to the relevant bodies, such as the NHS in the UK.

How does a Visitor Check-In Tool work?

The digital check-in form is supplied either via a link or QR code – two options for easy accessibility on a mobile device.

This can be done when visitors arrive or – if you know in advance who is arriving – you can send the link by text or email to them beforehand.

Visitors submit their name, contact number, date of arrival, and number of people in their party.

This information is then stored and ready to be accessed when needed.

Who should be using a Visitor Check-In Tool?

The Visitor Check-In Tool is suitable for any business or group that is welcoming people on-site.

This includes:

  • Pubs, bars & restaurant patrons
  • Sports clubs (e.g. a tennis club hosting away teams)
  • Businesses (e.g. having employees sign in or welcoming clients or guests)
  • Community groups (e.g. youth clubs or charities)
  • Entertainment or Tourist attractions (e.g. theme parks or cinemas)

If you have a need to collect data to protect against the spread of Covid-19, then a Visitor Check-In Tool is the perfect solution for you.

How do I keep customer data safe and comply with GDPR when using a Visitor Check-In Tool?

It’s vital to keep customer data safe to be compliant with data protection laws, so you need to be diligent in how you collect data and where you store it.

Hopefully you’ll be using a tool provided by a company experienced with data collection.

Look for businesses that have ISO 27001 certification – as this is considered the gold standard for anyone who hosts sensitive data.

In addition, find out where the data is stored and whether it has the functionality to allow you to be compliant with GDPR.
