COVID-19 – Digital ID Solution Gallops to Success at Harness Racing
During this time, security and a number of other functions were quickly identified as needing reinforcement in response to the new situation. These changes have since become permanent processes.
The offline and cross-platform capabilities of Genero Mobile were important selection criteria for developers.
The identity card has been well received and widely adopted within a short period. Authorised users no longer require any other form of identification, and changes to their details are updated daily.
In order to facilitate the seamless integration of the card, Harness Racing extended their suite of RESTful APIs that were built from previous experience developing data access and photo upload features. This significantly reduced the development effort, since low-level coding is no longer required. The RESTful client code generator made consuming RESTful APIs a very quick and easy process too.
Harness Racing’s application also uses RESTful APIs to integrate with client systems across the world.
An Australian organisation commented after just 24 hours of making change requests:
This looks amazing and exactly what we were after. I must ask, are you applying these updates yourself or do you have a team? Pretty impressed with what you can achieve in such little time!
Toohey’s response :
I have not put much effort into the work at all. It is so quick to code APIs now, and we can do everything I have wanted to do so far!
Harness racing has developed a comprehensive suite of APIs, which are available to developers across the world. Access Harness racing’s RESTful API documentation here:
