We are looking for a cost-effective system to track visitors to our historic site. The site is comprised of about 27 acres of "historic park" with a museum, chapel and giftshop in one building and a small historic shrine in another building. The site includes walking paths, a cemetery, a bridge, and a rosary garden.
We are trying to solve two problems in a cost-effective way:
Unfortunately, many of the products that are out there are VERY pricey, and it would be helpful to hear back from colleagues as to effectiveness and ease of product use. As I mentioned, we are looking for a cost effective way to solve this problem, because we are short on funding and staff.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Please e-mail me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org

We are planning to transition from a paper guest book to an tablet-based visitor sign in. We're going to use Google Forms for collecting the information. The data that's entered by the visitor goes into a spreadsheet which makes it easy for us to upload to an email list or analyze it further. It eliminates any backend data entry by us. And, the price is right (FREE)!
