“Does it work on a touch screen?”
Why, yes, as a matter of fact, it does!
After being in this business for a number of years, I can tell you that there are just about as many ways of taking attendance as there are organizations in the world. When I started, I didn’t even realize all the different ways attendance could be taken with a computer, and customers keep surprising me on the innovative methods they come up with.
Some swear by the old-fashioned way: scratch your name off a list with a pencil. Others have a dedicated staff member for attendance. Some give their members a password and allow themselves to sign in on the computer. Bar code readers, card swipers, and even fingerprint readers are in common use. And touch screens. Some organizations like to set up kiosks around their facilities and have members just point at their names to sign in.
The whole mobile space is also exploding. This makes sense, because not all of your events will be in a building or a classroom. Field trips and other activities make iPads and other mobile devices very handy.
