Posted in Newsletter Uncategorized

We are delighted to announce the new Sentinel user interface and virtual cards will be launched on 17th May 2023.

Here’s a sneak peak of what’s coming

My Sentinel and Power BI

These enhancements will bring the administration dashboard and mySentinel completely up-to-date.

They will have Power BI integration to present powerful headline analysis and enable Sponsor Admins to create flexible reports for the people they sponsor.

Virtual Sentinel Cards

Virtual Sentinel cards are optional, in addition to a physical card. They come at no extra cost can be stored on a smartphone or smart device using a wallet app called Vircarda, which can be downloaded for free via Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Virtual cards can be issued by a Sentinel Administrator, or requested via an individual’s mySentinel account.

A virtual Sentinel card will have the same authority as a physical card. If using a virtual card to check authority to work, it must be presented using Vircarda to validate its authenticity.

As stated in the Sentinel Scheme Rules copies or photographs of Sentinel cards are not accepted.

We will be providing more information by email and on the website as we approach the launch date.
