Your staff use the app to scan a QR code—a type of barcode—when they arrive or leave work.


Each time they scan the code, Blip records them as clocked in or out.


Use the app to track when your staff are working.


Choose a date range and export your team’s work history. Then, save it as a spreadsheet.

How does Blip work?

It’s really simple. You generate a QR code through the app. Print off as many as you like and dot them around your workplace—just make sure your staff can see them when they come in or out.

As soon as your staff scan the QR code with the Blip app, you can see their name, the date and when they arrived or left work. But there’s more.

At the tap of a button, your staff can log the start and end of their breaks—and you can see a full history of how long and how often their breaks are.

With Blip, you can view your staff’s work hours and see whether they’re taking enough downtime—wherever you are. But remember, your staff only see their own history.

How will Blip benefit me and my team?

Keeping track of when your staff get in, take breaks and leave work is near impossible if you don’t have a process in place. And by that we mean more than just scribbling on a scrap of paper.

With Blip, you can:

  • See clearly who’s in and who’s currently on a break—even when you’re away from the workplace.
  • Export your team’s work history and save it as a spreadsheet to help you spot absence patterns.
  • Put your staff in control of logging their hours to take the pressure off you.

How do I get started?

With Blip, there’s no long wait for delivery or to have someone install it. Just download it and log in using your BrightHR email address and password.

Set it up for your team in minutes—it won’t cost you a penny.
