Wiskey is the first open platform that offers innovative services to students, allowing them to interact with their environment. To do so, a simple gesture: approach their NFC-compatible smartphones to a Wiskey reader.
Firstly intended to students, Wiskey will allow them to validate their attendance in a course with a simple gesture, or even pay at the cafeteria of their school with their smartphone. Finally, the application will give the possibility to access to a set of useful information (check their schedule, the availability of a specific classroom, of a teacher) simply by touching the Wiskey NFC chips with their smartphones.
From the school point of view, the attendance mechanism will be simplified, secured and automatic. At the moment a student will check his/her smartphone on a Wiskey reader, he/she will be automatically considered as attended in the course in less than one second. In case the student forgot to validate his attendance, he/she will receive a notification to make sure to validate his/her attendance. Thus, the teachers can now teach during this time they needed before to call each student. Others services can be added in the future to the Wiskey platform: borrow some books, use printers with their ID, etc…
The implementation of the Wiskey technology on the Laureate Campus of the 15th district of Paris will allow these establishments to propose innovative services while reducing costs and environmental impact due to the attendance management.
