Madison, Wis. – Sept. 20, 2023 – Singlewire Software, the leader in solutions that help keep people safe and informed, has won a Platinum 2023 New Product of the Year Award from Security Today in the Visitor Management category for its Visitor Aware solution. The awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security.

“Organizations need to protect their buildings and people, and that starts with knowing who they are letting inside,” said Paul Shain, president and CEO of Singlewire Software. “Visitor Aware offers organizations a powerful tool to screen visitors and identify potential issues. This award stresses the importance of having security solutions that can stop threats at the front door.”

Visitor Aware enables organizations to notice and handle threats to safety from the moment they arise. Administrators can create customized guidelines for visitor approvals and keep sensitive areas free of unwanted guests. Visitor Aware incorporates ID scanning and facial recognition to screen visitors against important watchlists and active legal injunctions. The technology then alerts administrators of any flagged issues or threats to prevent these people from accessing the building. Those who are approved by the technology then have a printed pass to continue into the building. Additionally, Visitor Aware aids organizations in volunteer management, safety drill management, rostering, and reunification.

“In the realm of security, innovation is essential. When judging new security products, remember that they should not just meet today’s challenges but also anticipate the threats of tomorrow,” said Ralph C. Jensen, publisher of Security Today magazine. “By taking a proactive and holistic approach to security products and technology, you can better anticipate and adapt to ongoing physical security needs in commercial and industrial settings, ensuring the safety of your assets, employees and operations. We are pleased to recognize so many outstanding new security products that are addressing these concerns.”
