One of the largest tank storage companies in Europe, Odfjell Terminals Rotterdam, has been working with ID-Visitor by ORIBI ID-Solutions since February 2010. The ID of every visitor to this immense 65-hectare site is scanned and automatically checked. During scanning, the document and personal data are read and transferred into the software. This ensures that visitors are processed quickly and with the correct data.
The only thing the company security officers have to type in after the scan is the number of the access card given to the visitor. In the background, the visitor's data are linked to the access card provided. When leaving the premises, the visitor simply has to deposit the access pass in a pass receptacle and he or she is automatically marked as no longer present.
Odfjell has to comply with the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS). The ISPS certificate was created after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001. The purpose of the ISPS is to prevent terrorist attacks at high-risk companies. Rob Rietveld: "This code dictates that we must be able to prove who is on the premises at any time of the day or even at night. We are also obliged to check identity documents. Because of this, I make certain demands on my security guards. I think it's important to provide them with the right tools. ID-Visitor is one of them. You cannot expect a security guard to recognise all the documents in the world, let alone check them. Fortunately, with ID-Visitor we have found a suitable solution for this."
