Infrasafe Provides Web-Based Visitor Management to Improve Security and Eliminate Lines

Wednesday, August 28, 2002

ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ – Infrasafe, Inc. has contracted withBREA Property Management to provide iVisitor, a web-based visitor management


system, for the third-tallest building in North America, Chicago’s Aon Center. The iVisitor system enhances facility security and expedites guest check-in, allowing tenants to pre-enroll guests, receive real-time notifications of their arrival, and have visitor access control badges automatically printed.

iVisitor has reduced long visitor lines in the Aon Center’s lobbies by 86%, all while increasing building security. Through a standard web browser, tenants can easily register anticipated visitors, dynamically updating expected visitor information at the security station and guest reception areas. iVisitor interfaces with the Aon Center’s existing access control system, automatically printing unique barcode badges that control building access for that visitor. For increased security, system administrators can input unwanted guests, such as disgruntled ex-employees, into a “barred individuals” database to alert of potential threats to the facility. In case of an emergency or building evacuation, iVisitor’s unique architecture allows for the real-time collection of visitor information from any computer, anytime, anywhere.

Curtis Hrncirik, Product Manager for Infrasafe states, “This was a major win that will further fuel our momentum within the multi-tenant market. The selection to deploy this product at the Aon Center validates its scalability and overall ease of use.”

Roxanne Osborne, General Manager for BREA Property Management at the Aon Center states, “We are passionate about delivering the level of customer service a premier building such as the Aon Center deserves. After a lengthy and complete competitive analysis, we are excited to apply Infrasafe’s new technologies to provide a more secure environment, streamline costs, and increase our overall efficiency.”
