How does Blip work?
There are two ways to use Blip and you decide which one is right for you.
There’s Blip’s clever geolocation feature. Use the app to create a geofence—a virtual boundary—around your workplace. Then, when your employees enter or leave the geofence, Blip picks up their location and asks them to clock in or out—helping you to see exactly where your staff have worked and how long for.
And then you’ve got Blip’s smart scanning system. Use it to generate a QR code (a type of barcode) through the app. Then print off as many of these as you like and dot them around your workplace.
Your staff scan these codes when they start work, finish work and go on a break, and Blip records their hours and locations for you. It’s that simple.
Did you know? Blip has surpassed over 5 million clock-ins worldwide!
Blip now talks to your BrightHR!
You can also see Blip directly through your BrightHR account, because Blip now talks to your BrightHR software, too!
So when you log into your account, it already knows exactly who’s clocked in, who’s off, and who’s on a break, giving you real-time employee updates on your dashboard.
Lots of staff are working from home in the current climate, but with Blip it’s never been easier to manage your staff hours, wherever you are.
How will Blip benefit me?
As a business owner, it’s your responsibility to keep a record of your team’s work hours. But that doesn’t have to mean spending hours poring over lengthy spreadsheets and dog-eared calendars.
Blip’s iOS and Android app makes logging staff work hours quick and easy. Here’s how:
- Check your employees’ work hours and track their locations on the go.
- Keep an eye on your employees’ breaks and make sure they’re getting enough downtime.
- Let employees' set reminders so they never forget to clock in, clock out, or take a break.
- Create multiple locations and easily track where your staff have worked during the day.
- Enable Flexible clocking for your whole company or specific employees, allowing them to clock in from anywhere.
- Export work history for your team or employee and save it as a spreadsheet for your records.
- Plus, Blip now speaks to your BrightHR, giving you real-time updates on your dashboard of who's clocked in and who's on on a break.
Here’s what one customer says about Blip’s contactless clocking app:
“I took advantage of Bright’s new geolocation feature and in less than 24 hours all my homeworkers were set up. I can now view their hours at the click of a button. This has given me great peace of mind and has been a real lifesaver in these testing times.”
