According to an official release on March 26, India’s IT solutions provider Infologic Consultancy Services (ICSPL) has launched a bilingual biometric-enabled attendance system based on radio frequency identification for schools and educational institutions in Saudi Arabia, eliminating the need for manual attendance registers. The new system will ensure automatic attendance tracking and reporting to senior management, teachers and parents through a text messaging service (SMS) or email. “The student tracking system has been highly appreciated by local school authorities because of the problems faced by school officials and parents, especially when smaller kids are left unattended or left asleep by careless drivers in school vehicles,” said chief executive officer of Infologic Consultancy Services G.N. Khan.
Infologic offers solutions based on three modules for the student tracking system (STS), vehicle tracking system (VTS) and parent authentication system (PAS). These services will replace manual registers by electronic registers that will provide an instant report about student absenteeism and about the whereabouts of the students, said the company.
Khan added that the badges distributed among students, called ‘Smart Tags’, use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to identify and relay information for safety purposes, including when students get on and off their school buses and their whereabouts within the campus or en route to schools.Posted in International
