The IMS attendance module can be easily integrated with a biometric device that uses finger prints or a Radio frequency identification (RFID) card. Students have an RFID embedded in their identification cards which are recognized and registered by the biometric machine. IMS biometric keeps track of staff and student arrival, departure, lunch durations, off-days, overtime, holidays and absences. Using biometric systems eliminates the hassle of taking attendance on paper, saving time and cost. The system makes it easy to keep records of student and staff attendance. It also gives administrators 27/7 access to attendance records as it is linked to the overall system.
