Enhancing School Recordkeeping: Integrating SignInApp with Veracross at YIS

At Academic Data Solutions, we are committed to providing practical solutions that help educational institutions streamline their operations. We are pleased to share a recent project we completed with Yokohama International School (YIS). By integrating SignInApp with the Veracross Master Attendance system, we have automated their attendance tracking and behavior logging, which saves YIS valuable time and improves their operational efficiency.

The Big Picture

Our goal was to create a seamless and automated system for YIS that eliminates the need for manual recordkeeping. Imagine a school environment where every student sign-in and sign-out is automatically recorded, and any forgotten IDs are logged into Veracross as Behavior logs. This vision has now become a reality at YIS, thanks to our innovative integration solution.

How It Works

Here’s a closer look at the technical details of this integration:

Webhook Notifications
SignInApp, a state-of-the-art visitor management tool, sends real-time notifications via Webhook to our custom-built listener whenever a student signs in or out. This capability allows YIS to capture every entry and exit without any manual intervention.

Data Processing
Our listener processes these incoming notifications and stores the data in a centralized datastore. Advanced processing engines then retrieve this data to update Veracross Master Attendance records and log any forgotten IDs into students’ behavior logs automatically.

Efficiency and Speed
We leveraged Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the computing needs of this project and utilized Node.js for our processing engines. This combination allows for asynchronous and concurrent execution, significantly improving processing times compared to the previous system YIS used.


Why It Matters

This integration is a significant upgrade for YIS, transforming their operational efficiency and accuracy in recordkeeping. By automating these processes, YIS staff can now focus more on their primary responsibilities—teaching and supporting students—while our system takes care of the administrative tasks.

Visual Representation

To illustrate how this system works, we have created a detailed diagram of the architecture and workflow.

Looking Ahead

This successful integration is just the beginning. We are committed to continuously refining and expanding our solutions to meet the evolving needs of educational institutions. Our partnership with YIS is a testament to our dedication to innovation and excellence.
