BBC Coffee Implements Yardi Bluepoint to Provide Automated Visitor Management


Southampton-based coffee manufacturer removes paper-based guest check-in with Yardi technology

LONDON, UK, May 10, 2022 – BBC Coffee, an innovative coffee manufacturer in Southampton that produces 1.5 tonnes of roasted coffee per hour, has selected Yardi Bluepoint™ visitor management to provide a flexible solution that can scale to its needs.

Yardi Bluepoint will allow BBC Coffee to automate check-in and replace the existing paper-based registration experience. This will improve GDPR and let visitors self-check-in to the factory, which includes customers buying coffee, suppliers and contractors.

“The Yardi Bluepoint team were communicative and responsive and articulated how Bluepoint could be implemented and used to manage visitors without anyone having to be on reception,” said Ewa Bellman, accounts and commercial manager for BBC Coffee. “It was important to us to have visitor notifications sent to the host, who could be anywhere on the factory floor. By having a self-check-in kiosk and using a QR code, we can streamline the check-in process, align with GDPR regulations and provide a better visitor experience.”

“We’re excited to work with BBC Coffee to provide their visitor management,” said Paul Speariett, regional director for Yardi. “Bluepoint will allow them to automate the visitor journey and provide an enhanced experience to visitors, improve security and gain better efficiency.”
