If you have more than one ECS card you can see the different cards by swiping to either side of your screen.
The app stores your card details so you can view them at all times, even when you have no mobile signal.
Most pages in the app support the “pull down to refresh” function if you need to update the page.
In the app you can also generate an authorisation code for others to view your card online via the ECS website or via the companion ECS Check app.
If you are working on a site that is using ECS Check for monitoring and audit, the quickest way for your card to be validated is to use the QR code. The QR code is accessed by touching the “Show your QR code for ECS Check” located just below the image of your card.
