Posted on April 19, 2013
School is the place where the kid spends his maximum of time after home and it is the place where parents are unable to keep a watch over their children and this becomes a reason of stress for many. They constantly inquire about their kids by teachers, bus drivers and their friends. Time and Attendance software is a blessing for school going kids and their parents; many would think how would this software help the kids as it is designed to be used in business firms but yes it is now being used in schools.
Security of the kids while traveling to school in buses and even when they are in school is an important thing and this software ensures that too. The parents could easily log on to their systems and can see that their kid has safely boarded the bus or not and they can even keep a track of time. Many schools have opted this system and got it installed in their buses and campus as well. The system helps to scan students and keep a record of students who go out for various activities; this ensures double safety as record of each student is stored in the system. When a student enters the campus he would have to give his fingerprints which will later be scanned and then only the student can enter the campus. These fingerprints cannot be forged or manipulated which makes security very tight.
Time and Attendance software has been successful with both large and small businesses and its recent adaptation in schools would certainly give relaxation to the school authorities whose primary concern besides providing quality education is the security of students. Parents on the other hand can easily see where the child is and can keep track of his time. The intruders would also be easily located with the help of this software. The software has many additional benefits apart from providing security. It is easy to install and does not require an installation team. It can easily be connected to software which can be accessed by many and can see the information. It has good storage capacity and so large information can also be easily stored in it. Thus it goes on for years and reports regarding attendance of the past years can be easily taken.
The software is cost effective and a single unit can work for the whole system. It also keeps a track of other employees. It is user friendly and no technical expertise is required to operate it. With this software, parents can easily relax and can concentrate on their work otherwise the concern whether the child has boarded the bus or not, whether he has entered the school or not is a big concern for all parents. The increasing crime even in schools have raised an alarm and the schools who have taken this seriously are doing very bit they can to ensure a protective environment for their kids.
