How we made Envoy better in 2018
If you signed in with Envoy or spent time in the Envoy dashboard last year, you probably noticed that a few things changed. That’s because Envoy made over 100 improvements to our products, be they new features or design tweaks, in 2018.
Your feedback served as our guide: signing in needed to be more intuitive, managing and inviting visitors could be simpler and more integrated with the tools you already use, and protecting your data was imperative.
Make sure you’re getting the most of the improvements Envoy added in the past year. Or, skip ahead to see what’s on deck for 2019.
A faster sign-in that’s all you
Your visitors will find it easier to see which text field corresponds with which label (like Full name or Email address). Your branding is also more prominent, so visitors can see that they’re in the right place. Learn more about the redesigned sign-in experience.
Welcome visitors in 17 languages
Visitors can now choose their preferred language when they sign in. Just pick which languages you’ll support and Envoy translates your sign-in flow automatically. Learn more about supporting multiple languages.
Stronger protections for your data
Envoy is now both SOC 2 type 1 and type 2 certified, and our services are in compliance with GDPR requirements. Learn more about how Envoy supports your compliance efforts.
Organize your deliveries in a snap
Taming the chaos of your mail pile is easy—and now free—with Envoy Deliveries. Take a photo of each incoming delivery, and Envoy notifies the recipient to pick it up. Learn more about managing deliveries with Envoy.
A simpler way for your visitors to pre-register
Now your visitors can upload a photo of themselves and sign any necessary documents before they arrive. The day of their visit, they simply type their name to sign in. Learn more about pre-registering visitors.
