Remember the older times when there were no established education system in country or world, the time when a teacher use to sit under a tree and students on the floor and they use to call the name of each student vocally and student use to give them reply either by raising hand or after their name saying “yes sir/madam”.

The second part was of the teacher to remember all the name in his mind about the present one and absentee.

What a tough job, isn’t. Later on that has moved onto paper records. Teacher’s use to write and record the attendance on paper writing it again and again for each month’s record making a bunch or can say a store of paper sheets in record section making a good shelter for rat’s and other tiny creatures.

Off course it’s sometimes difficult for the school authorities to find out a particular record of a student in case of conflict regarding attendance or something other.


Now in this technological world when everybody is having a smartphone , access to computers, internet and other digital modes of communication , what is the requirement left for schools not using a school management software that can help them to make there system more connected ,efficient, accessible and time saving.


If a school implements a digitally managed Attendance management system either alone or as part of an overall school management software, surely they are going to earn acclaim from parents and society for providing following benefits:
• Up to date records of each class and students.
• Real time notification to parents about presence, absence or late.
• Reducing the unnecessary workload of school staff so they could focus on their core purpose of education and students well being.
• Easy reporting and analysis of various factors such as total absences, absences vs students performance etc.
