Manual Attendance collection is a tiresome job that is prone to errors. The Driver Console from TrackSchoolBus is a simple school bus app that helps you in this regard. It's simple and easy to use.
Most school bus tracking solutions require pre-installed hardware in a vehicle for the tracking function to work. But here, all functions including tracking, attendance and many other features are handled easily with a single android application.
Our driver console app helps you to experience hassle-free student attendance collection and quick application setup instead of going through heavy wiring and configuration to track hardware. The DriverConsole app consists of almost all the features of our Attendant app.
The driver can help verify attendance which syncs simultaneously with Attendant App/Vehicle Tracking Hardware. The whole process becomes more organised and scheduled to the minutest detail.
