Pros: It's very easy to configure. During the on-boarding process WhosOnLocation team configured the software for me. All I had to do was download the iPad application, login and setup printing. The entire process takes less and 1 hour.

Overall: I've worked as a software Engineer in Silicon Valley California since 1976. During my career I've purchased many software licenses and deployed numerous enterprise applications for global companies. My experience with customer support from WhosOnLocation is my new gold standard. Their response time are immediate. Their staff really cares, has deep product knowledge and excellent communication skills. Doesn't matter what time of the day or night they return my emails and or call me. They check-in on a regular bases to insure everything is running smoothly. They email and call to discuss new features. Best of all, although my account is small the customer service they provide is better than I've received when working for very large enterprises.

I tip my hat to them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure to purchase a compatible printer, form WhosOnLocation list of approved printers.

Pros: Very easy to use. It's web based and doesn't take much of a computer to run it. Easy to integrate a web cam and badge printer. I use it every day and the management interface is easy to navigate and setup.

Cons: Would be nice to have a button on the main menu of the management interface to show who's onsite without having to go to the location. But I only have 1 location.

Overall: We use WhosOnSite for managing our visitors and it has made our life so much easier. Our facility is access controlled and this software has allowed us to have our visitors read and acknowledge our visitor policy, while also taking their photo and printing a visitor badge. The point of contact notifications are great and we have ours set to email and SMS text message notifications upon visitor arrival. It's been a great tool for seeing who is currently onsite and being able to report visitor history. We set our system up with a Windows 10 basic pc and are using a 19inch touch screen display which makes it very easy for visitors to enter their info when signing in and out. The web management interface is fairly easy to navigate and there is plenty of help if you need it. We're just scratching the surface of what you can do with this software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the good work !

I would also like to point out to you that you can favourite any page in the application, simply select the star on the page you require, and this will then bookmark under under the star in the header of the application. We hope this helps. Enjoy!

Thanks Alex for the review - And thank you for the feedback on price. We do strive to deliver the very best value to our user community and this is why we include a host of features our competitors don't include all in one suite. Contractor management, visitor management, pre-registration, induction management, employee attendance, Geolocation tracking of class field trips and more - Many competitors offer a lower price but when you look deeper their feature set is limited. Thanks again for the review - we love you guys for supporting us.

Comments: Working with Ben and the team from WOL has been a straight forward process. Initial training and set up helped to get the programme running for our needs. The site is easy to navigate and support is only an email away. WOL allows us to track our contractors on the work site. As our office is not always manned, the txt messaging function is an added bonus. The system alerts us via txt when a contractor is signing in / out. We will continue to use WOL as it fits our Health & Safety requirements.

Pros: It's awesome

Cons: None. At all.

Overall: We kicked off the trial, loved it, and smacked it in without any issues at all. Easy, inexpensive (a bit of gear to buy for kiosks, printers and barcode scanners etc), and just the right amount of support - though you don't need it if you can use a computer; the help desk has everything you need. Smartphone support for staff to login and logout makes it easy for them to interact, and once we get the subcontractors part up and running it should be easy for all. Almost everything we thought we could do with in this type of system Whosonlocation already has built in. Still exploring and finding good things in the software to put in place. Cracker work guys!

Pros: Easy to deploy and simple to use. Great customer service and support from the WOL team. the software come with a rich feature set. Our visitors, contractors and co-workers are enjoying using it.

Cons: No issues come to mind.

Overall: Last year we had a major project about to start and required a system that can effectively track, induct and manage a large number of contractors and visitors. We evaluated a number of systems but were not able to implement any one of them due to short time frame or they have the features that we require until we had the demonstration from the WOL team. Instantly everyone in my team would like to have it and in no time we had WOL kiosks running at the project site. Now all our 4 NZ divisions have WOL implemented. More importantly we have awesome support from WOL team and training sessions are fantastic.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not hesitate, just book an online demonstration, you will not regret.

Pros: Very easy for incoming vistors to use.
Notifications are customisable and the rules based triggered notifications are a really flexible mechanism.
Can be deployed globally - we intend to roll out to our sites in AU and UK too.

Cons: We use a touch screen rather than a tablet as hooking on a Bluetooth scanner is too expensive. PC based captive scanner is a good option.

Overall: After an extensive search and trialling many product offerings I selected this for our business for use in our new premises. The team from WhosOnloaction were extremely helpful in getting us up and running very quickly.

Pros: Easy to use, Gives peace of mind in terms on ensuring we have met our obligations to induct our visitors from a Health and Safety perspective.

Cons: No issues as far as I'm concerned

Overall: We were looking for a electronic system to manage the induction and tracking of our reps and visitor to the store, Through Mitre 10 we had the opportunity to trial Who's on Location for the Mitre 10 group and found it to be a seamless process which automated much of our visitor induction process and gave a much more professional interface with visitor and reps than our previous paper based system

Recommendations to other buyers: A great solution to replace a paper based sign in and induction process for visitors to site.

Pros: It is online and the company are very responsive to support requests. It is easy to operate and being online can be used concurrently by multiple users without the need for a network. It can also be used from home and from mobile devices.

Cons: I have yet to find anything that I dislike about WOL and we have been using it for over 12 months.

Overall: This is an excellent piece of software for controlling visitors and contractors as well as various asset types, such as keys

Recommendations to other buyers: Much better than a pen and paper solution to visitor and contractor management

Pros: So simple, easy to use. Great customer service, very responsive

Overall: We recently replaced our paper sign in visitor book with the WhosOnLocation solution and are very pleased with the results. Not only was the configuration of the system simple and straightforward, the intuitive nature of the product required very minimal end user training. We initially implemented this for one location, but due to the overwhelming positive feedback from our internal and external clients, we will be rolling out this solution to all of our US and International locations as well.

Pros: SMS alert upon arrival of visitors
Evac events include visitors
Safety induction for visitors
Ability to review visitor information

Cons: The badge printer capability needs some work. More ability to customize the badge (more fields to choose from, ability to change the position, size printing sometimes off due to kiosk software).

Overall: Prior to installing WOL, we were utilizing a sign in book and pen. We had no way to track visitors during an emergency, and front desk checkin was cumbersome, safety was an afterthought, and notifying the host was painful. Afterwards we now have an induction process for all visitors, we are tracking all individuals to our facility, and we love the SMS alert we receive when a visitor arrives.

Recommendations to other buyers: Create an app that is simple enough to allow employees to open the app and have 2 big buttons (green and red) for sign in and sign out). Literally, 2 buttons to make it easy.

Pros: Good pricing structure. Like the text messaging embedded. Ability to customise pictures, health & safety messages. Would be good to have detailed off the shelf wording for H&S in regards to obligations of a PCBU.

Cons: Lack of integration to Office365 active directory - needs to be seamless for companies to set this up. Would be good to make the health & safety page a bit more pretty to read than just a script of words - embed pictures etc. click them to acknowledge etc. Would like more understanding of what the product actually does and how to bespoke configure for our needs. Like any software, usually you start to use in the absence of 50% of the functionality - I feel like this with WOL. Aware for example of app for evacuations, but no knowledge if this can link as add on in Outlook calendars etc?

I would like to also understand how we can setup the touch screen for multiplecompanies, and you link to either of the active directory accounts. We are in a shared office.

Would also recommend that you offer to sell / partner with someone to create keyring barcode for staff that can scan in and out each day using scanner (ie like a BP coffee club barcode). You need ot make the functionality as seamless as possible for corporates to use.

Overall: Disappointed at the sales process. Very eager to get me signed up. however very much left to our own. Would have appreciated more support at the start (pushed at us,m rather than us pulling form you etc). I also had to follow up to understand if we had started our contract - which we had by 10 days or so - but we were unaware and paying!

Recommendations to other buyers: You need to provide better advice on the technology it can be used with and where these can be purchased. Get yourself a preferred stockist and sell this up front. It was a hassle to go and find this stuff out, order, get installed. Woudl have been seamless to order and order the printer, scanner, computer screen at once. We ordered an ACER large touch screen computer and tghis is magical on the wall with WOL - very cheap option and I highly recommend. I can send you some pics if you would like - I definately recommend that you promote this. Much cheaper than Surface Pro of ipad, and triple the size etc.

Thank you for your review - it is greatly appreciated. We take on board your comments regarding the migration from version 1 to 2 and my team are reviewing their process and your experience from our customer support notes to see where we can improve. Just a small note (albeit this is not a support forum) - you can adjust the returning visitor look back option for Receptionists from the default 60 days to as much 365 days under Tools > Locations > View > Location Settings. For Kiosks it is set to 60 days but we are reviewing this as a result of your comment with a view to providing you options to match the receptionist look back. We will let you know once released.
