With this application on the GT890 or an Android tablet at your receptionist desk, a visitor simply walks up to it and the application guides them through the process of checking-in step by step. Profiles are captured and customized badges, complete with an individual's photograph, are created. An email automatically notifies the employee being called on that their guest has arrived. When the time comes to leave, visitors simply stop by the reception desk, pull up their profile and select the check-out button.
