About CCSS

Ident-A-Kid's CCSS is an easy-to-use K12 Visitor Management software that will secure and streamline your office by tracking all Visitors, Volunteers, Staff and Students that check in at your campus. Security is enhanced through the use of proprietary badges that include a current photo of the visitor, as well as all pertinent check-in information. CCSS is also a sexual offender alert system. The CCSS system can scan a visitors drivers license and then quickly check government offender's DB.

Pros: It's great for when we have visitors & volunteers. It's helpful with tracking tardies & early dismissals/returning of the students.

Cons: Not completely user-friendly. Not having a sales rep at our disposal.

Overall: The system concept is a great idea. It would be nice to be able to modify the program more to the needs of the school as the needs vary from school to school. It would be GREAT if the product worked more with PowerSchool, which we know you're working on but it's taking longer than we anticipated. Our customer support representative is very busy all the time and it's hard to get answers from her when needed.

Recommendations to other buyers: More PowerSchool integration would be good as we will get more bang for our buck.

Pros: It is simple for anyone to use and once set up the program runs smoothly throughtout the school year. Parents love the ease of it and we love the fact that we have a record of everyone in the building. If there is someone without a nametag they are sent back to the office to sign in.

Cons: The big red checkout button causes confusion sometimes. As soon as a parent walks up to the computer to check out a student they press that button instead of Student Checkout. I think if it was labeled Visitor Checkout it may be less confusing for those who aren't regular users.

Overall: The company has very good support and the program is very user friendly. We use this as a way of keeping up with who is tardy, early check outs, visitors and substitute teachers. The reports I can print give me an organized list of each activity that make keeping accurate records much easier.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great program that helps us keep our kids safe!

Safety first and this system helps install that!

Pros: Referring back for pictures or sign out information in custody cases, etc.

Cons: The downloading of information and the conversion of the type of file is always a chore. When you need the information, it is usually a situation that requires quickness. The file has to be converted when you load to your jump drive so it can be viewed on another device. I always have to get the tech guy to help and he is not here every day because we share him with another school.

Overall: We are an all kindergarten facillity. I have to teach a new group of parents each year how to use the Ident- A- Kid system. It is easy to use and one short review does it. We like to keep track of students picked up late in the afternoon and it is a grreat tool for proof of how many late pickups are a reality for some parents.

Recommendations to other buyers: The con mentioned above needs to be resolved. Our machine is not hooked up to any printer other than the label printer. We can only take the very valuable information that is collected off the drive by usb port which is a jump or external drive and the type of file that it pulls is not one that is compatable to view on another device. The tech guy has to go through many different trials and errors to figure out how to get the files transferred to a usable format.

Pros: I love that I can run a report to confirm everyone that has checked in or out of our school.

Cons: Every now and then we get an error message and the program shuts down and has to be restarted.

Overall: You have a wonderful product that is very helpful for students and visitors checking in and out of our building.

Pros: That it will print a picture right on the badge.

Cons: Like I said before, the resolution of the camera leave a little to be desired and when there is high volume it tends to go real slow and lock up.

Overall: I think that this is a good package. It has a little bit of trouble with high volume. When there is a computer update it usually runs a little slower. It does tend to lock up when people are trying to get logged in and taking pictures. The camera resolution isn't the best either.

Pros: The system is very easy to use and the support system from the company is very friendly.

Cons: I wish that it would some how connect to our STINOW system so we could use it for checking students in. (tardies)

Overall: We have had the software for several years now and it is wonderful. I have called the support line several times and each time the team has been very friendly and helpful.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is easy to set up and it takes a lot off of the secretary of the school.
