Attendance is one of the most important elements of administrative processes in educational institutions. A proper attendance system not only brings for the success for students but also the institute.

Enhanced Student Performance

With a smart classroom attendance management system, students and their parents get the real-time notification via SMS or Email if a student is absent. This not only increases parents’ involvement in their child’s academic activities but it also motivates students to maintain discipline attendance records in the class.

By this, it maximizes students’ engagement rate in the class thus improves their performances.

Time-saving for Teachers

With a student information system and its attendance system, teachers don’t have to maintain manual student attendance. Biometric and RFID can record attendance automatically. If an institute doesn’t use the above-mentioned systems, teachers can mark attendance on their mobile/ tablet via ‘Teacher’s Portal’ which is less time taking and better than manual processes.

This saves a significant amount of time which they can use in focusing on students, creating better teaching methods and help in the development of the institute.
