Most of the e-registration systems have this problem with Supply and Cover Teachers , because they don't integrate with a Cover module. Ideally, when you assign a supply teacher to cover for your teacher, the e-registration system should pick it up. School2000 offers such a solution, which will sync with Sims.net and CMIS and comes with a Cover module. If you are using Nova-T Cover module, you wouldn't need any training on School2000's Cover 8O . And you can give the supply teacher a Palm PDA, Pocket PC or a Laptop for registration. Palm works offline, so the teachers would need to synchronize using a serial Dock or InfraRed. Pocket PC, Intranet and PC application are online. So no need to sync. Supply teachers can also make use of our e-registration by Photo Grid, where they can click on each student's photo to register attendance. A browser based e-registration demo is available on www.school2000.co.uk

All goods points, but they still dont answer the problem we seem to have
* Something that takes less than 25 seconds to train on
* Something that is secure, but doesnt need a password
* Something that can't be demolished
* Something that is live
* Something that cant be lost (student cards, etc)
As it happens, we use CMIS & ePortal. For Cover, when internal staff are on cover, it does assign them as being on cover for registration.
PARS has a cover module too, but again ,the problems above come into effect.
