There are many benefits to using a digital sign-in system for farms and rural properties. Perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it is more efficient than a traditional, paper-based sign-in system. Often, it takes a lot of time to complete a paper-based sign-in and it requires visitors to physically travel to an office or location where this is kept. With a digital sign-in system, visitors can check in as soon as they arrive, for example by scanning a QR code sign at the front gate, or be prompted in an app to check in once they cross the property boundary using geo-fencing technology. This can be especially useful for security purposes, as well as for keeping track of employees or visitors such as contractors performing jobs. It also saves a lot of time and hassle when it comes to reporting and meeting compliance obligations – you can access records quickly and easily, pull reports from the system and share health and safety plans digitally.
Another benefit is that it can help to streamline communication between different parties. For example, if you have a large farm with multiple employees, you can use a digital sign-in system to send out messages or updates to everyone at once. This can save a lot of time and hassle, and ensure that everyone is always on the same page and aware of developing situations, for example, updates to tasks or an incident being reported.
Finally, a digital sign-in system can also help to create a more professional appearance for your farm or property. If you’re regularly dealing with customers or clients, then having a sleek and modern sign-in system can give them a good impression of your business. It shows that you’re keeping up with the times and that you’re willing to invest in technology to improve your operations.
