Attendance Registration Card System is developed for schools, where students to 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 automatically become 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.
