Service Provider Members

The different attributes of a Service Provider Member which you can set up in WhosOnLocation. You must have the Service Provider Manager user role to access this feature.

A Service Provider Member is any person that enters your location as part of their work and aren’t employed by your organization. They are counted as members of service provider organizations. These can be anyone from cleaners to builders to suppliers to temp workers and anyone that performs services for your organization and needs to sign into your locations.

There is a lot of different information you can store in WhosOnLocation about a Service Provider Member. A lot of this data can be used to manage these service providers, their roles in their organization, and their accesses to your location, keeping safety and security at the forefront of your organization.

The different sections for Service Provider Members covered in this article are:

Profile Information

Organizations

WolMobile

Member Indeuctions

Member Tokens

Qualifications

Please Note: Some of these sections are only available with the corresponding Add-on turned on and the necessary user role assigned.

Profile Information

These are the contact details of the member. The only required field to add a new member is the Full Name field, this must have a first and last name to be accepted.

In order for a member to have access to your locations, the Status of their Account needs to be Active. When first adding an account, the Status defaults to Pending, you can then change this to Active, Inactive, or On-Hold.

InactivePending, and On-Hold are all statuses which prevent access to your locations, you can use these to manage your members in any way you want. E.g. On-Hold means you are waiting for paperwork, Inactive means they are not currently providing services but they may in the future, etc.

Organizations

Add or remove the organizations a member belongs to in this section. Once an organization has been added, you can adjust the Location Permissions and Organization Roles of that member for that organization.

A member cannot have access to more locations than their organization, but they can have fewer. E.g. An organization has location permission for all locations in one country, but a member may only have permission for one city. This means they will only be recognized as a service provider for the location in that city.

You can assign different Organization Roles in this section. These roles can be used to manage inductions, e.g. all members with the builder contact role must pass the builders induction; to identify specific members of organizations, e.g. Account Managers are the main contacts for each organization; or they can be used for specific purposes in WhosOnLocation, e.g. Panic Alarm Responders, Policy Owners, etc.

Organization Roles are set up in WhosOnLocation at the Service Provider Manager level under Member Contact Role Types from the left-hand menu.

Member Tokens

Please Note: Member Tokens will only appear when the Identity Management Add-on has been enabled by the Account Owner.

Tokens are used to expedite the sign in/out process through scanning. If you have a token set up in WhosOnLocation, you can scan this instead of entering your name into a kiosk to sign in or out.

Tokens are any barcode or QR code that is entered into the system to give a service provider this ability. They can be added by an Identity Manager user in the system or by the service provider themselves when signing in on the kiosk if the self-register option is enabled.

Please have a look at Service Providers Self-Recording On The Kiosk for more information on Self-Registering tokens.

From this section, you can view any tokens set up in a member’s account and, if you have the Identity Manager user role, add new tokens.

You do not need to have the Qualifications Manager user role to add qualifications to a service provider's profile, only to create different qualifications.
