Benefits of printing badges

  • When you require every property visitor to wear a badge, it’s easy to identify visitors that did not go through the approved sign-in process.

  • Integrate with select access control systems to allow for access barcodes/QR codes to print directly on badges, allowing easy access to the building.

Available customizations

Badges will always print with the visitor’s name, but the rest is up to you. No matter what type of supported badges you’re using, you have several options for customizations.

  • Branding: Tenant name, Tenant logo, Property name, Property logo

  • Visitor Photo: Display or hide the visitor photo.

  • Custom fields: Tenant name, Host, Group name, Property walk-in, Floor, Suite.

  • Time of entry: Displays the date and time of visitor check-in

  • Custom message: Display a custom message on all badges.

  • Access control Barcode or QR code. Learn more about integrations available for connect here.
