MinuteHound's automated, cloud-based, biometric time clock software is making it easier for private school administrators to keep track of both students and employees.
Student and employee attendance keeping often takes a large portion of the day for school secretaries, business managers, and even administrators. Because school attendance must be accurate and teachers are prone to forget attendance-taking as they rush to meet time constraints for their lessons, school employees are often forced to spend much of the day verifying attendance and ensuring it is entered correctly into the school's data-keeping and hr management software.
MinuteHound's innovative new technology has provided a third way. Using a biometric fingerprint scanner, MinuteHound automatically records when employees or students report for work or class. Using cloud-based software that can be running in the background on any computer, even a teacher's primary workstation, MinuteHound then automatically records data regarding number of hours present or worked and number of students/employees present throughout the day.
The biometric scanner, which recognizes each students or employee based on fingerprint data but scrambles that data to meet privacy regulations, eliminates arguments over tardiness and attendance. Students cannot accuse teachers of being biased because the system automatically records when a student has reported for class. The system has been known to dramatically increase student responsibility and decrease tardiness, which results in a safer school with a greater focus on learning.
Additionally, because the data reporting is done automatically, school secretaries, business managers, and administrators no longer have to spend hours processing attendance sheets. Further, there is no margin for error, so schools can rest confident in the fact that they are well within state regulations. Further, because the information is kept in real time and administrators/secretaries can access both current and historical data at any time, it is easy for these individuals to check to see if a student is present, how many days he or she has missed, or whether he or she is routinely tardy.
Because MinuteHound's latest release also allows schools to track their employees, the system is an all-in-one solution. While they keep track of student data, administrators and secretaries can also easily see which hourly, salaried, and temporary employees are on duty. This not only streamlines payroll, which can be completed using the automated system in minutes where it would have previously taken hours, but it can also make everything from sub calling to staffing changes simpler.
Keeping track of students and employees is one of the biggest challenges private schools face. MinuteHound's newest release makes this process much easier, so administrators can focus on education.
