You are right to be concerned for the safety and protection of children and youth on Sunday mornings or any time they are in your facility. Checkpoint provides your organization with the assurance that you can identify and confirm the location of children at any time, and especially in the case of an emergency. Parents simply check in their kids at a workstation (either a manned or a self-guided computer). Checkpoint handles the rest. It's also a great tool for any event type and knowing exactly where everybody is in case of an emergency.
Checkpoint is designed to work with the attendance classes, activity groups, and small groups you have set up in ACS. Members check in to sessions, which are tied to attendance, activity, and small group events. Checkpoint tracks the number of people checked into a location and enforces maximum occupancy restrictions. Finally, you can post attendance markings directly from Checkpoint.
Since we started using Checkpoint, I know who is in the Children’s Wing and who is not. We are able to get accurate counts and save so much time posting attendance.”
— Dean, Children’s Pastor at CrossPointe Church
The tracking capability of the Checkpoint module is based on a workstation system. Workstations can be manned for visitors or unmanned for members and regular attendees.
With ACS Checkpoint, you can customize your Vacation Bible School (VBS) check-in screen to compliment the design of your VBS emails. Chose between your own images or use one of our pre-designed themes including VBS designs for Group's Crocodile Dock and Lifeway's Boomerang Express as well as other generic designs.
High security ensures that only staff with the proper clearance will have access to ACS Checkpoint and not to other parts of ACS. Password-protected check-in computers prevent someone from exiting Checkpoint and accessing other data.
Simply configure Checkpoint to interact with the ACS Attendance module to mark attendance records. Then you can immediately post attendance markings for individuals who are "checked in" a session.
Once an individual has checked in, you can quickly find his or her individual information in the Checkpoint module by barcode scan, the last 4 digits of their phone number, pager number, or last name.
ACS Checkpoint offers cards, lists, or statistical reports that can be customized easily and saved with brief notes for future use.
Cards – Security badges and bar code labels are easily printed from Checkpoint Reports.
Lists – Listing of barcode numbers, notes, and pager numbers assigned to individuals can be printed.
Statistical Reporting – Real-time session statistics, including class, names, and checkin/out time can be reported quickly while the classes and groups are in session.
