Want to find out why over 3 million carded workers use our solutions...

Highly secure

Cloud | Mobile | PC

At Checarda, we believe in an increasingly data-driven world, where it is an entirely realistic expectation that users are able to securely and quickly verify a person’s credentials via cloud services connected to mobile and Windows PC devices.

We believe in using "best in class" technologies, so you don’t have to worry.

Credential checking

Secured | Verified | Guaranteed

As a smartcard issuing organisation, you need confidence that cardholder details can be securely verified. Credentials and qualifications can be updated quickly and efficiently on any Android or iOS smartphone device and Windows PC Client.


This is why we do, what we do.

Integrated solution

Unified | Collaborative | Cohesive

Checarda is an integral part of our smartcard technology, providing our clients with complete assurance that their solution is connected, compliant and secure from onboarding to endpoint.


We believe the user experience and customer journey is directly linked to the performance of the total system.

Checarda, the App available for Android, iOS and Windows PC

Checarda is a free App that securely reads, checks and validates physical and virtual smartcards.

 

Virtual card reads

One solution, unlimited end points

Virtual cards can be installed on iOS and Android devices using our Vircarda App and read using Checarda. Virtual cards can be transferred between devices - for example, if you change your device.

Virtual cards are highly secure due to encrypted, short-life QR codes. The QR code automatically refreshes every 30 seconds or when manually refreshed.

A copy of the card read is captured by Checarda together with the time, date and GPS co-ordinates, where available. This provides a complete audit trail of card reads for the card issuing organisation and sends an instant notification to the cardholder.

When a virtual card is read offline, the card is provisionally validated, and the rest of the card data is cached on the smartcard reader and completed once connectivity is available.

Physical card reads

One solution, unlimited end points

Physical cards are read on Android devices using the NFC chip embedded in the card. We currently are unable to read physical cards on iOS devices due to restrictions Apple places on using NFC readers.

 

When read offline, Checarda reads the data stored in the card chip and presents it on screen.


When read online, Checarda validates the authenticity of the card and then connects to Gencarda to establish if the card has been updated or cancelled. The smartcard is then updated or cancelled as appropriate, before displaying the cardholder’s details.

 

A copy of the card read is captured by Checarda together with the time, date and GPS co-ordinates, where available. This provides a complete audit trail of card reads.
