3. New Features
3-1. Dynamic Card Support
Dynamic Cards will now be supported besides Regular Cards. With Dynamic Cards, you are able to control and monitor the status of the cards (ie. BEFORE ACTIVATION, ACTIVATED, DELETED, PAUSING, PAUSED, EXPIRING, EXPIRED)
Regular Card has no interaction with the cloud after the card is issued and will function until the card is removed from BioStar database. The card will remain on the user’s smartphone for good. Regular card credits also contains maintenance credits that can be used to re-issue in case user loses or replaces a phone. The credit is charged with every card issued.
Dynamic Card is different in that there is continuous communication with the cloud. Every time a card is placed on the device, ID is verified on the cloud real-time. This offers better control/management of the cards where you can revoke, suspend, put expiration dates and more.
Dynamic Card licensing model is also different in that it is charge based on per-reader, per-month use, rather than per-card issued. So, with the Dynamic cards, you can issue unlimited number of cards to work with ‘x’ number of readers for ‘y’ number of months based on the subscription.
3-2. Custom Card Design Support (for Dynamic Card only)
From Airfob Portal which will be released on 27-April-2020, you can design your own cards for Dynamic cards.. User can add/modify various fields for users on the card.
3-3. Multi Card Support
User can possess multi-cards on one single Airfob pass from more than one Workplace.
