Take a Modern Approach to School Safety

Envoy visitor registration is a smart part of today’s modern school safety systems.

There’s no doubt that school safety is a priority, and is essential to student well-being and academic success. In fact, feeling “safe, welcomed, and respected” plays a key role in students’ ability to learn1, according to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).

Many common safety solutions, like security cameras, locking doors, and metal detectors, are needed to protect students from uncertain events. But they are a far cry from the traditional image of an elementary or high school.

It is our job to protect our students: to find solutions that safeguard our school, while maintaining a positive and friendly feel. Visitor management software is one risk prevention measure that NAPS recommends to help protect students and make them feel comfortable2.

Envoy is the only visitor management software designed to delight and make visitors feel at home. It’s so warm and welcoming that amongst schools, Envoy is becoming the new standard.

Unlike old fashioned visitor management systems which use bulky, outdated and third party hardware, with Envoy, visitors sign in on an iPad. And your office receptionist can view the web dashboard on any computer, PC or Mac. It’s present day look creates a modern and friendly feel.

Envoy packs a punch for school safety, too. Key features like a watchlist and badge printing ensure that it’s easy to identify unauthorized visitors. Plus, the mobile-compatible dashboard allows administrators to easily see a snapshot of who’s on campus at any moment, from any location.

Envoy is simple to roll out and even easier to use. Setup takes about ten minutes, and you’ll get customer service in under a minute from real people, not robots. So help your schools embrace the digital age with Envoy. It’s the only system that focuses on making your school be the best, most efficient, and safest that it can be.
