Send instant notifications

Think about what it feels like when visit an office for a meeting or interview: You walk in and head to the front desk where you’re greeted by the receptionist. They ask why you’re visiting, or who you’re meeting, and that’s it—the conversation ends because they need to contact your host. Or, they might even have to get up from their desk and leave you alone in the lobby.

Now imagine it differently with Envoy: You walk in and are greeted warmly. You’re asked to enter a few quick details on the company’s iPad, including your host’s name. Then, you have a nice chat with the receptionist until your host comes to meet you. It’s easy to see how automatic host notifications create a better experience for everyone.
