This summer has been full of excitement for us. We’ve redesigned our app, released a ton of new features, and seen amazing growth in our business. But all of these things pale in comparison to the news we are announcing today. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re getting a new name. Going forward, we will no longer be called The iPad Receptionist. Instead, we’ll simply be The Receptionist.
Why we’re changing our name
Over the past several months, we’ve made a lot of changes. We’ve talked with our customers about what they want from their visitor management system, and we’ve introduced many new features to make sure our app fits the bill. We’ve also learned about the innovative ways people are using our product, some of which go far beyond simply signing in visitors. A few examples:
- TripAdvisor uses it to enhance their brand image as a technology company.
- Robinson Bradshaw uses it to protect their clients’ privacy.
- Vault Fitness uses it to track hours for billing.
One thing we’ve heard over and over from our customers is that the app frees up their front desk staff to support the company in more valuable ways. The receptionist or office manager can now devote their time to tasks that help the company grow and succeed, rather than being chained to a desk. Our visitor management system isn’t just an office sign-in technology. It’s a multipurpose tool that supports businesses in myriad ways. In the future, we plan to continue developing the app to provide even more ways for companies to improve efficiency in their office. We wanted our name to reflect what our company is really about. “The iPad Receptionist” has a great ring — but it focuses on the technology. Instead, we needed something that conveys the value the technology provides. That’s why we chose The Receptionist. And we’re proud to introduce The Receptionist to you today.
We’ll be rolling out the new name over the next few weeks. If you’re a current customer or receive any communications from us, here’s what you can expect.
- Our website will switch over to www.thereceptionist.com. Bookmarks and links to the old site will still work — you’ll just be redirected to the same information on the new site.
- Branding within the app will change to The Receptionist.
- Information about us online will shift over to the new logo and name.
- Emails you receive from us will be from the new domain, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s staying the same
Our commitment to providing value and to supporting our customers will still be our top priority. That’s the only way we’ll live up to our new name. Prices are staying the same. The app itself will still work the same way. We’ll continue to introduce new features, and our customers will continue to receive the same level of support they always have. Our goal isn’t just to make the best visitor management system out there. It’s to create the best possible experience for our customers and for everyone who enters one of their offices. If you have any questions about our new name and what it means for you — or you’d like to learn more about how The Receptionist can transform your visitors’ experience — contact us at 888-315-5230 or email@example.com.
