University students – whether freshers getting used to independence for the first time or returning mature students – are ideal users of biometric or smartcard-based attendance, registration and access systems.
With FasTrak’s solutions, Universities can provide the tools for a simple-to-use and easy-to-integrate campus wide attendance and access system.
Simply placing ID points at the entrance to a lecture hall or seminar room allows students to scan either their fingerprint or smart card to confirm their attendance.
Professors and lecturers need not waste time taking a register. It’s a hands-off approach for staff and hands-on one for students.
Other campus resources can also be accessed this way – from the library to the fitness gym, resources use can be authorised, monitored and – if integrated with a cashless payment system – charged for where appropriate.
It’s an extremely easy system for Universities to implement and for students to use, even more so when biometrics are used. Students can’t forget their fingerprints, lose them, or borrow somebody else’s to game the attendance records, or worse, use another student’s account for payments.
Fingerprint, and smart card based systems, make it easy for Universities to keep track of who is on campus, where they are, and even plot typical routes to help planning pathways or allocating lecture rooms.
FasTrak’s attendance and registration systems have multiple benefits for students and universities:
