The majority of companies will welcome visitors onto their premises. In the past, this process has been handled via manual processes such as using a visitor book. As our buildings are becoming smarter and more integrated with technology, there is a more efficient way to manage this process and that is called a visitor management system.
A visitor management system is a technology that tracks the people who are entering your building. Historically, visitor management systems consisted of a sign-in sheet placed on reception and users would write down their name and what time they signed in and out.
Staff members then have to let their colleagues know when someone is waiting in the lobby and at some point, the sign-in sheet gets filed away or discarded and the process carries on. Not only is this method not environmentally friendly, but it is inefficient. On top of this, it is desirable to look innovative and modern with the latest technology.
Integrating with a digital visitor management system replaces the conventional system and allows building owners to track the movement of people around their building as well as giving them greater access to functions and operations.
Twinview has its very own built-in visitor management system which connects to all other systems. It even connects to existing visitor management systems if one is already in place.
Visitor management systems can also be used by tenants to improve their experience within the workplace. Twinview has recently launched Smartview which goes one step further and gives users access to a range of features aimed at increasing workplace productivity.
Not only can users track the number of people entering a building, but it also aims to improve how they manage their day by letting them book meeting rooms, personalise the lighting and temperature of their workspace, order food from the café and even get live updates for weather and transport.
The emergence of digital twin technology has been one of the most exciting developments of our generation. In this piece, we'll address some of the most frequently asked questions regarding digital twins, both in a general sense and as they relate specifically to budlings. By the end of this article, you should better understand what digital twins are, how they work, and why they're becoming an increasingly important technology in various industries.
Implementing a visitor management system gives building owners the maximum amount of control over their premises providing a safe environment for employees with full control and visibility of everyone in and out of a site.
Simplifying the process of managing visitors makes it easier to search for their information instead of going through multiple pages of information. Unlike having the receptionist spend time managing the information, digital software such as Twinview can save time and efficiently keep a record of movement within the building.
Visitor management systems are crucial to the modern workplace. They create streamlined and enjoyable experiences for staff and visitors by keeping everyone safe and securely managing personal data whilst making building processes more efficient.
Our parent company, Space Group, hosts an annual _shift conference that brings together industry leaders and professionals from around the world to discuss the latest strategies and innovations in decarbonising the built environment. Held on November 9th in Newcastle upon Tyne, this year's conference was a tremendous success, with hundreds of attendees joining in-person and online.

Building Management Systems (BMS) have long been the gold standard in controlling and monitoring a building's mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical services. These systems streamline operations, allowing facility managers to oversee everything from HVAC to lighting to security systems. However, a new technology has emerged that pushes the boundaries of building management even further – the digital twin.
