Gaurav started Vizitor in 2018. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Vizitor?
I visited Facebook's HQ way back in 2014 and the first time I saw how they were making the visitors’ check-in digitally and the process was really smooth and in the meanwhile, I completed filling my details, my friend Connie was there to receive me at the entrance. In 2017, I used to visit a company office for some project discussions regularly and that time I realized we really need some system in India to automate this lengthy time-consuming process. I then started researching a visitor management system similar to what I saw in Facebook's office and found that there is no such product that caters to India's market with a good price point and customer user experience.
I would encourage all entrepreneurs is to launch their MVP as soon as possible. Once you will give your product in hand of your customers, their feedback and reviews will be valuable to you and help understand the next steps in product development.
Secondly, at the same time, I got an inquiry from my friend's company regarding building a similar product for their new office. So, this came a perfect timing and intuition that I should continue building a product and make it big.
I had past experience working on multiple SaaS products, even though they were not successful enough but I have learned a lot from my past failures and till now I have to make sure that I iterate fast on the product and in parallel work on the marketing side also.
We did good research in our city Chandigarh while we were building the application and we talked to around 10+ customers which involve consultancies, office, and co-working spaces. They all were happy to sign-up for our beta launch. During the demo and various meetings, the best part is that companies liked the UI/UX of the application and the price is what they are comfortable paying to move from manual registers.
We felt our success was when people themselves started signing up from our website and set up the devices and started using free-trials without our intervention. This was our goal from Day 1 to make our onboarding process smooth and user-friendly as that will help us scale in the future.
