We are pleased to announce the general availability of our Check-in/Check-out (CICO) feature, an advanced system to check students into a class and check them out. CICO supports two types of authentication codes, PIN and QR codes. These codes secure the attendance process and ensure that students are checked out by their parents or authorized persons. CICO also provides live attendance reports to track the status of students at any time. Furthermore, it allows an organization to set up late pickup fees and to automatically run the charges.
