Empowers Ecosystem of Leading Vendors and Developer Community to Create and Collaborate on Solutions for Building Connected Systems for the New Era of Security and Risk Mitigation

SEATTLE – July 22, 2020 – Traction Guest, the global leader in cloud-based enterprise visitor management systems (VMS), today unveiled its Traction Guest Catalyst Partner Program, which enables organizations to create and collaborate on connected systems for protecting the health and safety of people in the workplace. At a time when 84% of employees are concerned about returning to the physical workplace, the new partner program is designed to make it fast and easy for partners to build solutions with the highest levels of customization, flexibility and security. The Catalyst Partner Program supports an ecosystem of leading independent software vendors, technology solutions vendors, value added resellers, security integrators, professional services providers and affiliates in the development, sale, deployment and marketing of enterprise solutions leveraging the Traction Guest platform. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies around the world to reassess their risk tolerance,” said Erica Pretorius, Partner, Risk Advisory at Deloitte Canada. “Employee and visitor management is becoming a key component of risk and compliance programs. Partnering with Traction Guest enables our clients to derive critical new value from their risk management strategies, enabling a safe return to the workplace and ensuring a centralized system of record for all people onsite.”

To meet rapidly evolving needs for enterprise employee and visitor management, Traction Guest is now offering partners access to its APIs and low-code development platform. As the backbone for building out connected systems – such as integrations between access control systems, watchlists, contractor certifications and workplace dashboards – Traction Guest enables organizations to develop sophisticated flows and scalable, repeatable processes across multiple technologies. The platform will enable the creation of Traction Guest’s App Marketplace that will foster collaboration between developers and verticalized use case-specific solutions.

Contractor Compliance

“Verifying contractor credentials and actively managing onsite visits should be a key component of any organization’s security protocols.

Our partnership with Traction Guest enables our customers, especially those in highly regulated industries, to efficiently and securely meet their unique requirements for onsite personnel. For the contractor, they simply sign into the Traction Guest system and it verifies credentials and whether they are compliant.” – Mark Bania, CEO, Contractor Compliance

By partnering with Traction Guest, the focus on security now shifts from detection to prevention. Our customers can instantly screen incoming visitors against 2,000+ databases and custom watchlists through a quick ID scan, providing actionable data and ensuring workplace safety.” – Lance Clark, CEO, Ident Solutions, FedCheck
