The Finger Scanning ID software can replace ID swipe cards, PINs, barcodes, and visual identification. It can be deployed anywhere in a school where students, teachers, staff, or visitors need to be identified—such as a lunch line or at the front door. It can operate in a single location or provide identification to multiple workstations.
Ident-A-Kid’s Complete Campus Security System (CCSS) is a free, visitor-management program that signs in and prints name badges for all visitors, and documents the lengths and reasons for their visits. Tardy and early-dismissal students also can be recorded. Its new messaging system, ParentAlert, can notify parents of any emergency.
