Visitor Management and Return to the Smart office

18:00 - 18:30

 

When Vodafone needed a way to enhance its visitor experience and better manage high footfall across its London and Newbury estates, it looked to streamline its visitor management with Vpod’s Vgreet visitor management system.

After deploying the system, Vodafone can now automate the visitor management process, enabling their reception teams to become hosts and focus more on the visitor themselves and not the process.

Hear from Vpod Solutions, Condeco and Vodafone at this year's RE:Connect event, on the future of the workplace.

Sam Farrant from Vpod Solutions, Simon Cohen from Condeco and Sherry Nematalla from Vodafone will share their thoughts on what the future of the workplace holds.
