Repetitive Authentication

NEC's Front Desk Assistant can effortlessly streamline the management of repeat visitors, including visitors, guests and employees.

With a person's consent, their biometric data can be stored. On return visits, the Front Desk Assistant can check against an existing facial recognition database. If a match is found, the saved information will be auto-populated to check the individual in and get them on their way quickly.

Proactive Paperwork

Should a visit require a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) or other documents such as safety protocols or building location, the Front Desk Assistant can manage this automatically.

Customizable documents can be made part of the preregistration process, averting the chance of being overlooked or taking up important meeting time.
