Mercedes-Benz Vans UK has teamed up with the Institute of Vehicle Recovery (IVR) to issue all its roadside technicians with an RQM(Rational Quality Manager) digital ID card. The new digital cards, developed by the IVR, have been created to modernize functionality and ensure that qualifications and compliance records can be accessed digitally. And the Information can be accessed by scanning a unique QR code via the digital ID card on a technician’s mobile phone, using another mobile phone.

Uses of Digital ID cards:

The RQM digital identity card provides portable, up-to-date information that can be checked wherever and whenever needed. The cards can be kept up to date remotely and automatically.

The RQM digital ID card works alongside the certification for health and safety of all technicians that support and provide roadside assistance, which Mercedes-Benz Vans UK requires every three years, rather than the current industry standard of every five years. The new RQM digital ID cards will be issued to the technicians upon completion of this training.
