The app also allows authorised card checkers to undertake a range of other activities. These are:
authenticating their team by checking their cards
undertaking spot checks
managing access control in and out of work – for both cardholders and visitors
recording the addition of locally-delivered training (e.g. inductions and briefings).
All card checking and reading activities are automatically synchronised to the Validate database to provide full audit records for clients.
This app allows card reads and visitor pass checks to be facilitated using the unique QR code printed on the front of the Validate smartcard or on the visitor pass.
Internet comms must be available when the QR code is checked in order for the database record to be verified online.
However once a Validate smartcard has been verified initially using online comms, the data is cached within the app for review even when comms might not be available.
This app can be used with any Android smartphone or tablet (Android 4 and above) with a rear-facing autofocus camera.
All smartcard checking activities are uploaded automatically to the database when an internet connection is present or will be uploaded later when connectivity is restored by re-launching the app.
Please note: the app does not work with Galaxy S3 Mini
