Biometric School Attendance Solution Mtech
Mtech Networks Limited is a solution based developer, We have developed a Biometric School Attendance Solution that has some of the best functionality and outcomes in East Africa. Our school attendance system normally enables teachers and guardians to keep track of students via remote SMS notification.
Biometric school attendance solutions are designed in a way that when students clocks in the morning notification is through SMS to the phone of parents or guardians. The system also sends an SMS in the evening when the day is done.
School attendance system can also be integrated in school fee payment program, where if a student clocks in a notification is made to the school database showing the students payment plan, it also sends a text to the parent giving detail of the student fee balance.
By employing the use of biometric school attendance software, the school can, therefore, keep track of staff movement in and out of the school compound. No more roll calls, no more paperwork, just click and search and all the report is displayed on the screen.
Biometric attendance system is not restricted to students only, teaching and non-teaching staff can also be integrated into the time attendance system where class attendance and workplace attendance is easily monitored. The supervisor only need to extract attendance in an excel sheet to know who and when a person did not attend to the duties given.
Since the system uses SMS to notify the parents, the same can be applied when there are events in schools and parents and guardians are required to attend. This way students will lack a chance of deceit of not telling guardians to attend to a meeting concerning their children’s welfare.

Biometric school attendance software
Biometric school attendance software includes sender ID and SMS system, this is the software that sends a notification SMS to the guardian or parent whenever the students clocks in the morning and when the students leave in the evening.
Biometric time attendance system for school is a package that has come to sanitize how our education system works, the system does not leave room for cheats when it comes to school attendance for students and workstation reporting for workers
School time attendance solutions give the date and time when one clock in the morning and when leaving in the evening.
University students used to take advantage of manual class attendance register since one had the option of asking a colleague to sign attendance for him, things have changed since the introduction of fingerprint attendance system, every person has unique fingerprints hence there is no way another person can clock in for his/ her colleagues.
It is also possible to configure biometric time attendance to be used to control those who have not paid for lunch, and a transport system to control who should use the transport system.
The commonly used identification methods such as visual identification, ID cards, PINs, card punches, etc. pose a lot of challenges and have certain limitations.
These methods are unable to provide accurate identification and the administrators have to spend time and resources in correcting errors.
Biometric time attendance system is designed in a way that If a student forgets to carry their card, they are unable to swipe attendance or access lunch. A password is also not a solution since students will be required to remember the password. This is an additional burden and does not go well with students.
Visual identification may not be suitable for a large group of students and can lead to security concerns and wrong attendance reporting.
It cannot solve the issues of proxy attendance and other loopholes such as bullies eating lunch of other students by using their cards or passwords. A biometric system can effectively eliminate these problems and streamline school operations by eliminating the need to track and reconcile attendance data.
School biometric for attendance provide reliable data from
- Students attendance
- Educational performance
- School fees payment history
- Teacher attendance
- Parents attendance during school meetings
- BioSIM offers the Ministry of Education Science and Technology with the entire Quality Index rating tool.

- The platform is able to link the school performance to the quality index school
Biometric School attendance System has so many advantages including
- Live scan enrollment station comprising of dual or single Iris scanners, Android phone, laptop computers and BioSIM system. These will be used to capture iris impressions of all participants as well as their head shots.
- Verification system comprising a single iris scanner and android phone. This will be used by the teachers to scan the students’ iris while in class and will be linked to the student information management system where it will have the time and date stamps of when the scan happened. This is effectively the time and attendance system.
- A central repository with all students, teachers, parents’ and school data that can be remotely accessed by any authorized person.
- OSCARating system for Ministry of Education Quality Department
