The reception desk is the first place visitors interact with your business. While it holds a lot of weight for first impressions, it now is your first line of defense in keeping your office and employees safe. 

Prior to COVID-19, visitor check-ins commonly consisted of badge printing and alerting team members of guest arrival. Those two things are still important today, but using the check-in feature for guests and employees can help mitigate COVID-19 in your office. How can this help your business? Here are a few things visitor and guest check-in can do to help with your capacity and space reservation efforts.

The reception and check-in are going to be essential parts of your business, without a doubt. It is also important to prepare the rest of your check-in space to communicate important information and ensure that space and desk reservation policies are followed. 

While the goal is to have everyone plan in advance, plans will change. The check-in process coupled with space reservation can keep real-time updates if someone cancels their reservation or leaves early. Using existing digital signs and kiosks to display open workspaces at check-in aids in any rebooking efforts or if someone happens to stop in when they weren’t planning on it. Displays are also a great tool to reiterate the office’s traffic flow and share safety reminders for anyone in the office. 

Don’t miss the opportunity of the reception desk to help with your capacity and space reservation goals. It plays a key role in effectively keeping your office the healthy environment you’re striving for it to be.
