How to choose a kids check in system for my church
First off, it is important to know what capabilities you want your check in system to have. You need to answer questions such as: Will you have a self-serve check in machine or will you have a manned kiosk to help in check-ins? Will there be a centralized check in are or will it be at the children's area? Will you need the system to be compatible with a barcode scanner? Do you need mobile integration to check who has checked in?
Why use church check in
Threats are real. Every year, 1.3 - 1.8 million children are reported missing in the US alone with 2100 reported missing every day (according to FBI records) Most abductions are reportedly carried out by close acquaintances - people who know the the family and children. This makes an effective check in system vital.
Accurate guardian and child information is also important - having up-to-date records and info on all the children checked into the system is the key to security. If you have a check-in system for children, then parents can input the correct family information and easily keep it up-to-date.
