A reception system that lets you see the faces of all members of staff
FaceTouch is a reception system that displays photos of your employee's faces on your touch panel display and calls when clients touch the appointed person's photo. Calls are sent through permanent* PC applications or emails to cellphones, notifying the person directly. In the information society, human connections are increasing through the likes of social networks and it can be come difficult to remember everybody’s name. With FaceTouch if you remember a person’s face you can retrieve information about them. This is a new way of communication suitable for a new generation of people using social media.
*Messenger of the original application Unlike typical applications, it can only be used to call members of staff so there is no fear of an information leak.
No hesitation when looking for personnel
Even if you do not know the name or department you can search for a person with whom you have an appointment from their photo only. You can also search for personnel from their name or department.
Intuitive, simple operation
Touch the photographic portrait of the person you want to call. Does not require any difficult operation.
Get to know more about the company
Visitors can get to know a member of staff and what kind of staff are in the company through the profile that is also displayed with the photographs.
A fixed phone in a company's entrance gives an old-fashioned impression that the company is not up-to-date. It's not cool to have a piece of paper with employee extension numbers written on it beside the phone; nor is it correct to assume that the visitor will remember the employee’s name.
Unmanned Reception System
Uncool and unthinkable. That uncool image will be projected out into the world.
The common reception scenario presumes that a visitor will remember an employee's full name and department details.
Receptionist "May I ask which Mr. Tanaka you are looking for?"
Visitor "Ummm, I think Mr. Tanaka working in the Digital something department."
Receptionist "We dont have any department called Digital something department..."
like this, there are times we have trouble when others are not as flexible as expected. The era of being happy for cute receptionist girls is over. And when taking a bullet train ride, not all people want to buy tickets at the ticket counter. Some people prefer buying it at the ticket machine. Facetouch will let you choose by face, even if you don't know their name, It will be convenient if it was next to the reception desk.
