Attendance management is the act of managing attendance or presence in a work setting to minimize loss due to employee time theft. The current world relies on various methods of attendance management, which range from biometric devices. This category of technology is under human resource management systems. The best attendance management software will use advanced technology in the market. The current technology that serves multiple work environments include fingerprint attendance. Also, there are mobile applications that operate in similar ways to traditional attendance management systems, for example a time clock application. These applications focus on the fundamental rules of attendance, identity, time and location. The attendance management applications use GPS and facial recognition methods. Attendance control has traditionally been approached using time clocks, timesheets, and time tracking software, but attendance management goes beyond this to provide a working environment which maximizes and motivates employee attendance. Recently it has become possible to collect attendance data automatically through using real-time location systems, which also allow for cross-linking between attendance data and performance.
Attendance management takes place in all educational campuses be they university, college or school.
