In a written statement Gregory Blondeau, founder of Proxyclick, said: “Not five to ten years ago, the visitor experience did not really exist, the basic process simply covered how someone is received in a building or premises and how they’re able to move around. Today, the rise of smart buildings, developments in automation, open application programming interface standards and cloud technology, have changed the game. Now, forward-thinking organizations are implementing fully-integrated solutions, enabling the Integrated Visitor Experience to begin the very moment they connect with their guest.”
