PATS was developed for use by the transportation departments of schools, nursing homes, churches, or any other organization with monitoring or tracking needs. It is an affordable and easy solution for tracking vehicles and patrons. PATS accomplishes this process by utilizing cutting edge technology and past practices. PATS allows drivers, monitors and/or helpers to accurately take attendance as patrons enter and/or exit the vehicle. Using pictures and/or ID cards, PATS is capable of taking current, accurate attendance on the vehicle and transmitting that information via cellular or Wi-Fi connection to a hosted server.
