Attendance Registration Card System is developed for schools
, where students can register their own attendance by swiping a card and checking in when they arrive at the school , as well as checking out when they leave again. By integrating UMS with the card system , it is easy to monitor the students’ attendance . All registrations made through the card system will automatically be available in [[UMS]].
Through the user-friendly interface, the teacher can see if everyone has registered correctly and make corrections if necessary. We currently integrate
to the Buanco card system. If you prefer to integrate to another card system, please contact us for price and availability.
