Fremont, CA: It is more important than ever in today's world to be able to keep track of who came to see you, when they arrived when they left, and what they were there to see.

A Directory of "Who to See

It's critical to link to or import a database of people the visitor is looking for. It's much easier to select Thomas Cunningham from a list than to type his name. Furthermore, if the names are typed, there would be no database consistency since Thomas, Tom, and Tommy will be entered. Employees or students are examples of "who to see."
