Considering an upgrade to a digital visitor management system? Once you have chosen the perfect system that matches all your needs, it’s time to get started.
An important first step to get the most out of your digital visitor registration app is to install it correctly on the proper device. We’ll explain to you what you’ll need, how to install the system and how to configure the application to your specific needs.
To manage your visitors digitally, you don’t need much. With nothing more than a tablet or a computer you can already get started. Place your tablet in a tablet mount or stand and add a label printer, and you’ve got the perfect set-up.
The visitor management system Vizito can be installed on any Apple iPad built after 2015. Most customers opt for the regular 10.2 inch iPad (model 2020).
For Android, we recommend devices built after 2018 for optimal compatibility. Most of our customers opt for Samsung tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy tab A 10.1 (SM-T510).
No tablet at hand? No worries: you can also use a PC with touchscreen to run the app. We recommend using a system lockdown application to protect the PC from unwanted access, such as KioWare.
To integrate the tablet smartly into your reception area, you can use a tablet mount, such as Bouncepad.
You can opt for a desktop model, wall mount or floor stand.
If you want to print badges for your visitors, you will also need a label printer. We recommend this Brother label printer.

By default, one visit type is active and enabled. You’re free to add more visit types, like for instance ‘supplier’ or ’employee’. In the Vizito app, the visitor will be prompted to select their corresponding visit type.
You can configure these visitor types separately. For example, you can show a different welcome message for each type of visitor, choose whether documents should be signed, and whether a badge should be printed.

You can integrate the app with the applications you use within your company, such as Google Workspace, eID integration, Slack, Teams or KioWare QR code scanner.
