Alice Receptionist now available in Canada through Konica Minolta

WinTech, a U.S.-based privately-held technology company, has announced that it will partner with Konica Minolta Canada to offer the Alice Receptionist to Canadian businesses. The technology offers companies another option from the traditional office environment by enhancing the overall visitor experience. Alice Receptionist is “a new solution for today’s workplace environment that allows companies to feature a smarter, safer and more efficient way to process on-site visitors and provide employee security – all while maintaining customer friendliness,” said WinTech.

The award-winning technology is a state-of-the-art, touchscreen-secure, visitor-management system that greets guests by utilizing two-way video communications, or one-way video or audio-only conversations. It alerts employees at their desks (or remotely) of visitor arrivals and allows visitors to contact employees or residents safely in real time, in any building or in any lobby. Alice Receptionist is also “enterprise-ready” with integrations to VoIP phone systems, Microsoft Lync/Skype for Business, and Active Directory. The automated visitor-management system checks guests in and out, and offers badge printing as well as visitor-induction processes – so that companies can easily track and manage guests efficiently.
