DOWNLOAD THE APPS
The RIW app is used by Access Controllers and Spot Checkers to scan cards in the field.
If using an iPhone, download the app from the Apple iTunes Store here (the app is simply titled RIW).
If using an Android phone, you can choose from two apps in the Google Play Store. The RIW (QR) app functions similar to the Apple version, which means you can only read and scan QR codes. The RIW (NFC) app allows Near Field Communication, which enables the Spot Checker to read the actual chip in the card. The benefit of this version is that the chip can be read in situations where the user may be offline.

The RIW system allows workers to hold both a physical and virtual card. The virtual card is maintained in a virtual wallet app called Vircarda, which is stored on the worker’s smart device. The virtual card can be scanned/swiped in the same way as the physical card. It allows Access Controllers and Spot Checkers to verify job roles, competencies and any associated work restrictions prior to granting access to a worksite. Virtual cards must be issued by your Primary Employer. If this has not already been actioned, please request this from your Primary Employer RIW Administrator.
