Student ID Card Scanning

    Good evening,

    We are looking to find a student ID scanning solution to help us with students coming and coming going on campus, tardies, PBIS, safety, and more that would integrate or exchange data with our student information system (SIS) in real time. We use Infinite Campus as our SIS and we have started to look a couple of solutions (Raptor, SSICA, etc.) but I am curious as to what other solutions exist that we may not know about.

    Thank you and I look forward to hearding to what others are using.

    Hi Coby - We presently use Raptor for visitor management and developed a custom in-house app for PBIS, check-in/checkout for lunch and other things. PlascoTrac is one of the programs we reviewed before developing our own in-house app many years ago. It's a little pricey, but has a lot of good features.

    Good luck with your search!
