Traction Guest opens Dublin office, expanding into European market

22 Jan 2020

Traction Guest, a global leader in cloud-based solutions for enterprise visitor management, is excited to announce the opening of a Dublin location. The new office, which follows the company’s Seattle launch earlier this year, will expand its sales and customer success teams, focusing on providing visitor management solutions and support for enterprises throughout Europe. 

The opening of the Dublin office adds another milestone in Traction Guest’s record year. In 2019, the company received a new round of funding, enjoyed a rapid increase in sales and employees, opened a Seattle office, and received numerous awards. “In order to truly maximize Traction Guest’s impact and adoption rates in customer sites across Europe, we needed to be accessible and establish a strong presence in the area,” said Keith Metcalfe, CEO of Traction Guest. “Opening operations in Dublin is consistent with our global strategy and will allow us to help European organizations significantly improve their visitor management protocols.”

Joining Europe’s tech “hotbed”: Traction Guest’s Dublin office is located on the Digital Hub campus in the city’s Liberties area. After assessing multiple locations across Europe, Traction Guest selected Dublin, which is also the EMEA home for Google, LinkedIn, Facebook and Slack, for its strong tech ecosystem. In 2018, Ireland was rated sixth in the world for doing business by the Institute for Management Development (IMD). 

Dublin is renowned for its thriving tech community, supportive business ecosystem and a talent-rich pool of technology professionals from all over Europe and beyond. The Dublin office will facilitate new opportunities and allow Traction Guest to solve visitor management challenges unique to the region. 

“Traction Guest has been a global company from the early days, and we have seen the interest around visitor management consistently increase in Europe,” said Gareth Evans, Director of Sales, EMEA, at Traction Guest. “The Dublin office puts us close to our growing international customer base and allows us to effectively assist in scaling their enterprise VMS deployments.”

ITAR compliance gaps in two real-world use cases

When it comes to ITAR compliance, organizations need to run a tight ship.

Stringent rules paired with complex operations can make compliance a tall order, but failing to adhere means opening the door to extremely harsh penalties. Two recent cases illustrate this. Compliance problems for two large organizations resulted in $13 million USD and $30 million USD in civil fines and remedial compliance measures respectively. Administration, documentation, and communication mistakes contributed to these penalties, and unfortunately, these are categories of errors that we often see organizations encounter.

In this piece, we examine the errors that led to these penalties and discuss what organizations can do to reduce the possibility of repeating them.

3 Ways Salesforce Ventures used a Visitor Management System to Welcome Guests

We all know what it feels like to walk into a new place and feel completely invisible. A good handshake is often all it takes to dispel that feeling, but unfortunately, our frenetic world makes it harder to personally meet the people who visit our organizations.

The first time a guest walks into your facility, the welcome you give them sets the tone for the entire relationship. If, before anything else, your visitors know that they are anticipated, valued and remembered, then you have laid the foundation for a partnership built on real human connection.
