See How Our Construction Workforce and Visitor Software Works

Your visitors and employees have more in common than you think. Let a centralized system take care of their journey at your construction sites — from visit planning through registration and check-in to post-visit reports.

Shift/visit planning
Shift/visit planning

The system helps match the workforce to specific tasks and create worker schedules, ensuring a seamless handover between shifts, all in compliance with labor laws. It can schedule construction site visits by considering supervisors’ availability and the level of disruption to ongoing operations. Pre-visit registration takes place online.

Shift/visit communication
Shift/visit communication

Inform workers well in advance about their shifts and changes to their schedules. Easily create, edit, and send personalized invitation/reminder emails to any visitor type in the versatile, user-friendly system. Outlook integration and multiple notification types are supported.

Employee/visitor badging
Employee/visitor badging

Allow individuals arriving at a site to register using a self-service kiosk or industrial tablet with a connected printer. Let them undergo a safety briefing, complete questionnaires, and sign compliance forms without any paper involved. Provide automatic photo capturing and print a personalized badge or time card.

Employee/visitor check-in and check-out
Employee/visitor check-in and check-out

Individuals check in by scanning their badge at a portable scan station to enter the restricted area of a construction site. They then use a corresponding check-out station at the end of a shift or visit. Integrated physical access management devices, such as security turnstiles or gates, restrict passage only to people with a valid badge.

Attendance report/visit logs
Attendance report/visit logs

The system collects clock-in/clock-out data for accurate payroll and billing with contractors. Detailed discipline reports highlight tardiness, early departures, absences, and excessive recreation area time. Real-time visit logs enhance security and facilitate quick response in an emergency.
