Local biometrics solutions provider Ideco has launched an app, in co-operation with its Electronic Visitor Identity Management (EVIM) solution, that now makes visitor access management quick and easy.
EVIM is a mobile data capture and fingerprint scanning device that reinforces security with a digital visitor register. Unlike the traditional paper-based visitor book, this ingenious device captures, registers and verifies all data in real time with the National Centre of Certified Identities (NCCI).
Ideco managing director Marius Coetzee says this new EVIM app gives a whole new meaning to keeping a competent visitor register. “This is a fantastic opportunity for gated communities and organisations to implement visitor management within their existing access control systems. At the same time, security at access points can now provide truly effective access control.”
A growing number of business parks and residential estates are deploying Ideco’s EVIM solution to improve access security and enhance the overall effectiveness of existing services. Not only does EVIM enhance the visitor handling process, it also minimises the risk for criminal behaviour associated with identity fraud and provides improved accountability.
“With the same login details as the EVIM portal, authorised residents can now login into the Android app and create appointments from their telephone contact list. Once they have selected the contact, date and time for the meeting or visit, the app will create the appointment in their calendar. The EVIM app also provides a function to update your profile details and change your password,” concludes Coetzee.
