Does your current visitor management process allow you to easily identify if a particular person has ever visited your site?
Do you know exactly who is on site at any point in time, either right now or on a specific date in the past?
If you had EntrySign, the answer to both of these questions would be yes. You can quickly and easily look up historical data and even view photographs of your visitors and contractors.
One of the first things your visitors will see upon arrival will be your sign-in process, whether that is currently a digitial or paper-based system.
Entrysign provides a self-contained touchscreen which visitors use to enter their details.
The screen is fully customised with your logo, colour scheme and any slogans/mottos meaning that your organisations image and identity is reinforced as soon as visitors arrive.
EntrySign reduces administration by replacing traditional paper-based books which are often found on reception desks.
Processes for signing people into your organisation can be made much quicker and efficient with EntrySign. Expected visitors can be pre-booked for an efficient sign-in process using optional QR-codes.

Where the MIS allows, EntrySign™ can even write back to the MIS allowing pupil late marks to be entered or updated automatically including calculating the minutes late inline with your school's attendance policy.
If your school uses a different MIS which we don't currently support, then our developers would be happy to talk with your MIS provider about integration. You can also import staff and students quickly and easily using CSV files or by using our free Active Directory integration.

Protect your investment in your new or existing AV system with a professional AV support contract that guarantees response times in person & is tailored specifically around your needs.
We’re already on hand for companies all over the country and would welcome the opportunity to provide an AV support contract for your business. Whether you need an emergency call out now or a quote for a one, two or three year maintenance contract for the future, please call us today to see how we can help.
An ‘AV system’ combines various individual pieces of AV equipment into one unique system and although the user interface is designed to be as simple as possible the component parts are often complicated and regardless of the equipment manufacturer nothing is guaranteed for life & can fail at any time. Of course when something does go wrong it’s usually when you need it the most!
Under an AV support contract we try to reduce unexpected equipment failures by periodically servicing, cleaning & testing all your equipment to ensure that everything is in operating correctly & will last as long as possible.
When something goes wrong we want to get you up & running again as quickly as humanly possible. We offer our clients telephone support for immediate first line support to queries and can guarantee onsite response times in person ranging from 2, 4 & 8 hours through to ‘next working day’. We understand that some AV systems are critical or in client facing retail environments that simply have to be working all the time and we will tailor our response times accordingly.
If you would like to discuss a new AV support contract for your business or are experiencing problems with any of your existing AV equipment, whether we supplied it or not, then please call us today on 019050640217 and we will do our best to help you.
When a piece of AV equipment fails it can often be time consuming to arrange a replacement or repair. Manufacturer warranties vary greatly, the better ones will typically offer ‘3 years onsite’ whereas most will be 1-3 years ‘Return to base’ (RTB). An ‘RTB’ warranty is better than nothing but in reality this means you will have to uninstall the equipment yourself and arrange for it to be sent back to the manufacturer and then wait for a repair or replacement, with no guarantees about how long this will take or when your system will be working again!
Under an Bpf AV support contract we can carry equipment spares specifically for your system so if anything does fail we can leave you with a temporary fix so your system still works and then we will return any faulty equipment to the manufacturers on your behalf & then once its repaired we will return to site and re-install it for you.
To ensure you have one point of contact and that we co-ordinate our technical, sales and installation teams to meet your requirements every project we undertake has a dedicated Project Manager.
