Go Smart is the Construction Industry App for reading and checking physical and virtual CSCS smartcards and compatible CSCS Partner Card Schemes.

Go Smart has the capability to read and check a cardholder's details using NFC enabled iOS smartphones or tablets or via a device's camera. The device reads information either directly from the physical smartcard's chip or from the QR code generated by the virtual smartcard.

Reading and checking smartcards with Go Smart allows card checkers to securely access up-to-date information, in real-time, to validate a cardholder's identity and ensures they have the appropriate training and qualifications for the occupation they are undertaking.

Go Smart also assists card checkers to identify 'fake' and expired cards, with the objective to ultimately improve Health and Safety in the Construction Industry.

Go Smart can read physical smartcards and partner card schemes virtual smartcards both online and offline; giving you the assurance that you can read and check cards even when you have no connectivity.

Why use Go Smart:
- Check for updates since a card was issued or last read
- Verify that cards are valid
- Ensure that cardholders have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out
- Record cards that have been checked, with the time and location where available
- Capture additional cardholder information, avoiding the need to keep paper records

Alternative methods of use could redeem it

If the app can't use IOS NFC then why can it not verify the number, expiry and photo data to check it against the database or at least provide a portal to the online card checker?

God app

App works well for me on IOS, perhaps on a future upgrade the ability to print direct from a phone or tablet would be useful so that site records can be easily kept on file/paper.

Need to be updated

App should be update to allow for contactless for iPhone as this is a critical tool to have on site.

Developer Response ,

Apple have locked down the NFC technology in their products for third parties which means Go Smart is currently not able to read the chips in the physical cards. The iOS version of Go Smart is, at the moment, for the reading of virtual cards only. Could you send us more details about what is or isn't happening and what device you are using to Thanks
