Students and teachers are the core of your institution, so all data relative to them should be paramount. But documenting such data is a time-consuming task. After all, you don’t want to be misinformed about the students and teachers in your institution or have no idea if a teacher is absent or not for the day.
Biometric devices take the complexity and time consumption out of collecting the attendance data of teachers and students in your institution. It’s a technology that lets your institution create data ids connected to the biometric print of every teacher and student. There are a world of possibilities with biometric devices, you can also start using these devices to allow students to automatically pay fees or generate their receipts, you can generate teacher leave applications and reports, allow access to institution infrastructure by just taking a scan of their fingerprints – all with just one device!
The biometric device becomes a lot more powerful when integrated with the local database you use for your institution. By integrating your biometric devices with a school ERP system, it instantly connects all the data of the teachers and students in your institution.
Build a seamless attendance tracking feature for your institution, generate fees, leave applications and even attendance reports, without hours of additional work on a daily basis by adopting the biometric technology.
