In some ways, attendance software may very well be worth its weight in gold whether you own a small business or a large company. Even a school or major event could benefit from it.
But I’ve also learned from both sides that computers are not always that reliable. They tend to make more mistakes than we humans do. Errors that are caused by glitches in the system or software that tends to try to overpower other software.
However, if you can get a good computer and keep it running smoothly, then I think using a program that keeps track of who is showing up for work, meetings or class and who is not, is worth it in the end.
