The optionally integrated Gallagher Visitor Management Client and Self-Registration Kiosk can make reception tasks simple, ensuring smooth processing of visitors upon arrival and letting you rest assured that your health and safety obligations have been met and your site remains secure.
Managing visitor access is historically time-consuming, costly and error-prone, potentially compromising security. Receptionists who are reliant on logbook-based visitor management systems can become overloaded and miss vital steps when receiving a sudden influx of visitors. And while many computer-based visitor management systems have automated most tasks, their inability to integrate with a sites existing security management system leaves potential security gaps.
Gallagher's Visitor Management module is a highly configurable, secure and easy-to-use solution. It uses client-server architecture for the Gallagher system, allowing the Gallagher server to communicate with Visitor Management smart clients via network services over TCP/IP.

The Visitor Management Web Service allows an external system to create and modify visits and visitors.
The web service sits on top of OPC-UA and enables a real time replication of information from an external system to Command Centre, allowing the third-party system to dynamically update visit and visitor information. For the external system to interact with the web service, a custom SOAP application needs to be written. The web service is primarily a data import mechanism but does allow a limited set of information to be queried.
Advantages of using the web service:
