Why have 2 international airports signed up for visitor and contractor management this month?

I was surprised this month when not one but two international airports signed up for Visitor Management and Visitor, Contractor Management. Our customer base over the past 6 years has become very diverse from schools and white collar offices to manufacturing facilities and construction sites, Fortune 500 companies to companies most people have never heard of.

To then have not one but 2 international airlines make inquiries was surprising. Each airline had different needs showing how two companies in exactly the same industry can require a very different solution.

Tampa International Airport Florida USA required a simple Visitor Management with SMS and email alert on arrival of a visitor to the host. You can see on the front page of the companies website details on a major construction project underway….Tampa International Airport is preparing for one of the biggest construction projects in airport history: A new Consolidated Rental Car Facility and Automated People Mover. The project is part of phase one of the Master Plan and will create 8,000 jobs in the Tampa Bay area between 2014-2017

Tampa International Airport went directly to a 30 day trial. You can try Visitor Management for free through the link below.

Darwin International Airport – Sydney Australia had requirements for Visitor, Contractor and Induction Management. Like Tampa International Airport Darwin International Airport is going through substantial construction upgrades to the airport. Krystal was not just looking to manage visitors on and off location but also needed to manage contractors licenses, insurances and more including contractor inductions. Having the ability to challenge a contractor on the spot with a hand held device was also appealing, immediately alerting the security team to potential expired inductions, licenses and general non compliance by a contractor

Krystal also needed several industrial style contractor management kiosks to be installed through out the airport for ease of access to contractors and management of contractors across multiple zones.

Darwin International Airport completed a series of demonstrations before committing to Visitor, Contractor and Induction Management. You can book a Visitor, Contractor and Induction Management Demonstration below.
