Are You Ready to Bulletproof Your Credentials?

by 24/7 Software / January 30, 2018

“Are you ready for today,” asks Jerry, your operations manager.

You give him a nod to acknowledge that you are ready while he hands you today’s guest list.

But, your nod quickly changes once you see the list.

You’ve got a lot of people coming to your property today – not just everyday customers either.

“We’ve got to stay sharp today,” you tell Jerry with a concerned look on your face.

Things didn’t go too well the last time you had this many people visiting your property in one day.

Several people made it on your property, and to secure locations, without proper credentials or with false ones.

But frankly, managing your guest credentials and access is a challenge every day.

Your boss, you, and Jerry all know that it’s a process that needs immediate fixing.

Do you have too many different credentials to organize, memorize, and control?

Do you worry that unauthorized people will gain access to areas that they shouldn’t?

These anxieties exist for many leaders working diligently to run a world-class operation.

We don’t want you to stress about it anymore, though.

We’ve got your back on this, and believe we can help shed some light on how to foolproof this process.

Fail-safe credentials can be produced and validated using credentialing software.

They can do so much more too!

Keep reading; we’re going to show you just how much more.

7. Credential Application Web Form

Create a web form on your website to let your staff or vendors apply for credential access for specific dates or events.
