Imagine marking attendance everyday as present or absent on the register everyday for all student in every class. It’s a tedious task for a school which doesn’t have a school automation software like ECAS (Enhanced Campus Automation System). Let’s have a brief idea about the Attendance Management Software module in ECAS.
ECAS uses such highly advanced techniques to mark attendance automatically from Smart card machines and Biometric devices. This saves more time as compared to manual attendance marking.
Some institutes use bar-coded identity cards or RFID based Smart Card for the students and employees where they have to scan their IDs before entering or leaving a class in Smart card machines. Some institutes also use Biometric machines for attendance that recognise the candidate on the basis of either thumb impression or face features.These machines run on a server and update such time-in/time-out logs on a real-time basis.
These records can be obtained in Excel or CSV format from the machine database. The administrator can login to their account in the campus automation software and import the Excel or CSV file by clicking on Import button, the attendance is automatically marked and updated in the database for the selected period setting .
ECAS automates the whole attendance marking process, thereby saving time of the faculty and the class. Such a campus automation software helps to maintain accurate records of students and staff through time log reports.
