The biometric attendance software can be used in a simple manner. We first capture unique characteristics like, fingerprints, iris scanner etc. This can be done for complete staff and even students. This data is then fed into the system. Whenever a person enters or exits the building, he/she has to make a biometric entry into the system. Without making this biometric entry, access will not be granted to use that door or passage. This way we can track their entry and exit timings.
