Acuant Partners with RightCrowd to Extend Visitor Management Solution

LOS ANGELES, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Acuant, the leading provider of identity management and verification solutions, has partnered with RightCrowd® to provide cutting edge software solutions for Visitor Management, Self-Service Kiosks and Continuous Workforce Assurance. RightCrowd® provides products that add functional enhancements to existing physical access control systems. The partnership provides corporations and venues with an automated ID verification and authentication solution that streamlines visitor management and enables better access control via self-service kiosks.

The benefits of such a service are readily apparent to both those who employ it as well as those who experience it. No longer are visitors at the mercy of waiting in line to see attendants completing tedious manual entry tasks. Visitors are able to complete a speedy and secure check-in, with a notification of the guest’s arrival going out to the recipient, and there is no need for superfluous staff. A leading global entertainment studio and top national retailer have recently incorporated RightCrowd’s self-service kiosk solution into their corporate offices and reported increased satisfaction and improved workflows proving tremendously positive results.

Acuant’s identity management solutions swiftly verify and authenticate ID’s enabling corporations to automate physical security processes. Acuant’s solutions validate driver’s licenses, passports, and other ID cards through both data and image extraction, allowing companies to verify visitor identities efficiently and effectively.

“Visitor management is a critical first line of defense in a company’s total security process,” said Yossi Zekri, CEO of Acuant. “Manually processing visitors can be a time consuming process where details are often overlooked. We are delighted to partner with RightCrowd to provide the technology that automates that capture and verification of information from IDs in real time to increase productivity without sacrificing accuracy and security.”

“Corporations now have to meet higher security standards, which can be time-consuming for employees, and difficult for visitors,” said Peter Hill, CEO of RightCrowd. “We’re pleased to be working with Acuant to streamline visitor management for businesses in support of Continuous Workforce Assurance.”
