Notify and communicate with employees

Instant Notification

ALICE notifies employees when visitors arrive, check-in, or use the employee directory to call employees.

Text/Email/Slack Notifications
When guests check-in, ALICE notifies employees by either a mobile text message, Slack, or e-mail.

Live Video/Audio Call Notifications
When visitors use the Employee Directory, they can call an employee. Employees can receive video calls on their PC or a phone call to their Teams client, desk phone, or mobile phone.



Communications can be provided by the ALICE Cloud service or ALICE can use your existing on-premise or hosted communications server.

ALICE comes with its own hosted cloud communication service which is included at every ALICE subscription level at NO additional cost.

On-premise VoIP
If your company has a SIP-based Voice over IP phones (VoIP) system such as Cisco or Avaya, ALICE can easily route all calls through your existing communications system.

ALICE Receptionist serves as the receptionist for your office or building entrance. Alice greets visitors, provides information and quickly connects employees with visitors using audio or video calls. The ALICE Receptionist system accomplishes this following three simple actions:

Detect • Greet • Connect

Visitor Detection

With visitor motion detection technology, ALICE knows when a visitor has walked into its detection range and greets the guest with a prerecorded welcome video. 

Motion detection sensitivity can be adjusted to detect visitors close by or across the room.


Visitor Greeting

Once the visitor motion detection identifies a visitor entering the area, ALICE will greet the visitor with a welcome video. ALICE offers English-speaking ALICE Personalities as well as 8 other language options including Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, and Arabic.

ALICE video personalities
Choose from two AI Receptionist avatars.*

Customers can have a custom greeting created for their organization, ** or choose to record their own personalized video personality.

*Some language options use pre-recorded individuals.

** Additional fees apply for ALICE-made custom videos. No fees apply for customers who implement their own receptionist videos on the system.

Connect Employees with Visitors

ALICE Receptionist calls company employees and connects them with the visitor at the ALICE Receptionist kiosk in the building lobby. Calls between employees and visitors can be both audio and video calls.

Reach employees anywhere
Employees can be reached on any number of communication devices, including desk phones, mobile phones, soft-phones, and audio calls to Teams clients.

Employee Notification

Improve Your Lobby Management
How you manage visitors and the sign-in system for your office is an important decision, especially when you have hundreds of clients and customers coming through your doors. First impressions can make a huge difference in how a customer views or interacts with your business. It is crucial to ensure that information is communicated without delay providing a seamless initial interaction.

That’s where ALICE Receptionist comes in. We provide a lobby management and visitor receptionist software platform that helps you easily register every person who walks through your doors. Upon entry, the visitor check-in process can help manage most of the repetitive aspects of the client/customer interactions improving communication and enhancing the customer experience with assured consistency.

Simplify your processes and gain confidence that your front office visitor interactions run smoothly with a visitor receptionist system from ALICE Receptionist.


Highly Visible, Communicative Devices

Today, most lobby management software systems are small and attached in some fashion as an afterthought to a fixture in your current lobby set up. There are options with iPads and laptop computers that let your office manager check people in and out available on the market today, but unfortunately, those options are difficult to use and can get overlooked. We usually find this equipment often becoming unused or forgotten.

Coronavirus in the Workplace

ALICE Receptionist is unique in the lobby management space by offering various highly visible devices such as floor standing kiosks and large screens that are easy to access and use for your team and, more importantly, the customers visiting your office. This offering makes the check-in technology easy to spot and interact with so visitors can freely engage with your business in an easy and intuitive format.

In addition to high-visibility devices, we incorporated video and audio communications between the ALICE kiosk and your team as a vital component to the visitor management process. Instead of just focusing on the automation of a check-in process, ALICE ensures things are running smoothly by keeping the human element ingrained in your lobby management. See our demo here (link) for a quick overview showing how our video solution taps your current employee team directly to improve customer communication!
