Startup SafePass Profile

Author: Dan Gelinas, Published on Oct 19, 2018

A major problem with visitor management is that the systems mostly require adhesive printed paper labels and paper logs, creating waste and an ongoing expense.

SafePass, a small (under 12 employees) privately-held, Houston-based 2016 startup that specializes in visitor management, says their technology fills a need and does so in a completely novel way. IPVM mentioned SafePass as an emerging technology in early 2018 (see: 30+ Emerging Tech Companies Examined). This video from the company's YouTube channel discusses what the company says differentiates it from others:

Further, SafePass says the innovations are just starting and there is lots more to come.

Inside this note we will discuss:

  • Where SafePass Came From
  • Its Patent-Pending Technology and Algorithms
  • Pricing
  • Channel Strategy
  • Attendance at ISC East & West
  • How the Solution Works
  • Badges
  • Visitor Management System
  • System Employee App
  • Future Roadmap
  • Compared to Other Options
  • Potential Problem
