ABSTRACT: The paper aimed at designing and implementing a computerized visitor management systems for Small, Medium and Large organizations. Many large organizations with numerous visitors who come in and out of the organization to meet up with various appointments are always faced with the problem of adequately capturing visitors and booking appointment dates with them.

It is a record in digital format that is theoretically capable of keeping track of list of visitors and their personal details for effective service from both clients and the company.1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM This project work is to unravel the tedium of working with conventional visitor system, where record entry and retrieval are still done manually. Using these conventional moods of operation may pose delay in the administrative system, where issues such as an instant retrieval of visitors(clients) information as with regards to tracking our clients either for promotions, advertisement, or shared company interest may pose little delay. But this research work provides basic visitors(clients) system where clients information are stored on visit to the company aiding proper storage and maintenance of client. Staff performance record are being access by the administration since every client is tag to a staff on visit to the company. 1.3 AIM AND OBJECTIVE OF STUDYThis research work is aimed at providing an electronic system for keeping tracks of visitors(clients) on visit to the establishment, reasons and booking base on the staff visited are assess for proper performance work ratio.The sole objective of this research is to provide adequate assessment of staff base on the amount ofvisitor(client) and their reason. Also keeping track of visitors(clients)information for easy communication.1.4 RESEARCH JUSTIFICATIONResearch is based on the current trend ongoing in offices I have visited,where I have to filled my details on a visitor book manually. These book is later stored on a file cabinet. Retrieving of visitor information from these book is done manually by going through the pages of these book one after the other. The new system that is to be developed is handle visitor record in view to access staff performance work ratio and providing easy and reliable storage medium.1.5 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF STUDYThe scope of this research is to design and implement a visitor system that model an organization structure by registering staff into the system, and collect visitors information on visit. Reasons of visit are taking and append to a staff for whom the visitor is there to see. The system will also provide a search engine for easy retriever of staff record from store. And lastly, provide a secure interface by granting access to only authorized personnel to use the system.This visitor management system will be limited to the following areas:1. Visitor(Client) feedback automation through mail 2. Biometric capturing of visitor information1.6 DEFINITION OF TERMSClient:A client is a piece of computer hardware or software that accesses a service made available by a server. The server is often (but not always) on another computer system, in which case the client accesses the service by way of a networkVisitor:A person who visits, as for reasons of friendship, business, duty, travel, or the like.Management System:A management system is the framework of policies, processes and procedures used to ensure that an organization can fulfill all tasks required to achieve its objectives.Visitor management system software: This software is what runs the electronic visitor management system. At most facilities, this software would be installed on an existing personal computer that is already located at the receptionist's desk..
