Will I still be able to use my existing card-checking technology once the app is launched?
Initially, CSCS Smart Check will be a standalone application, incompatible with existing site entry systems such as turnstiles and desktop card readers. However, there will be no immediate impact on existing card checking operations and employers can continue to use their existing card checking systems if required.
Once the app is launched, the project team will reach out to card schemes, employers and stakeholders to begin the process of enabling existing card checking systems to become compatible with the new app. While there will be a period of transition, and multiple systems running concurrently, all sites are expected and encouraged to migrate to the new app over time.
