Multiple locations, multiple tablets

Many doors? Many areas to access or leave? ZAP IN writes to our secure ZAP IN Cloud allowing all of your tablets to sync to the same data. Have a visitor sign in at the main entrance and sign out at another exit!

Time Tracking for Employees

It’s a modern punch clock! Employee time tracking with tallied hours.

Badges will not only show name and company, but the photo also. Each photo is time and date stamped and stored with the visitor’s record if verification is ever required.


Badges & Printers

Badges display current date, visitor’s name, visitors company and your logo. If photo capture is active, then the visitor’s picture will also be displayed.
