The CONFIDENT Childcare Management System from Lifewares is used in daycare centers, churches and schools to control the dropping off and picking up of children by parents or guardians. Most childcare facilities manage the identity of children and their proper guardians using solutions like clipboards and papers, wrist bands, ID cards or claimchecks, but all of them are slow and unreliable. With the fingerprint recognition capabilities in CONFIDENT, every parent or guardian checking a child in or out of a facility accesses their account using their fingerprint.
