Managing the hundreds of visitors that Bimbo Canada welcomes each week to its numerous offices dispersed all across Canada used to be a daunting task for Caitlyn Bannister.
Bannister is the Facilities and Leasing Coordinator for Bimbo Canada, a manufacturer and distributor of breads and other baked goods and salty snacks as part of the multinational Grupo Bimbo company. After many of their locations opted to no longer staff a full-time receptionist at the front desk, Bannister said there was still a need to keep track of visitors and notify employees of a guests’ arrival.

“At a lot of our locations, especially the ones where we don’t have a full-time receptionist anymore, The Receptionist became our check-in point,” Bannister said. “Because of the simplicity of the system and the backend, I can send it out to any of our locations, and they can easily set it up and manage it for their facilities needs.”
Case in point: some locations simply offer guest check-ins and check-outs, where employees are immediately notified once a visitor checks in. At other locations, in addition to handling check-ins and check-outs, The Receptionist for iPad is set up to route deliveries, contractors, and guests without appointments to the appropriate staff member through unique workflows.
“It’s a very easily managed and cost-saving tool for the company,” Bannister said. “It’s very intuitive, very simple, and overall a great service.”
