Whether teaching a course, presenting a webinar, or engaged in professional training, attendance is a critical metric to determining success.
However, taking attendance has been a tedious process throughout history for both instructors and students alike. It takes time and energy away from the actual teaching of the course, leaving everyone involved dissatisfied.

Attendance is critical to students’ success at the postsecondary level. In professional development environments, attendance is often mandatory and must be carefully taken. There needs to be a better way to collect, monitor, and report key attendance statistics.
