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.

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 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 employees have worked during the day.
  • Export work history for your team or employee and save it as a spreadsheet for your records.
  • Put your staff in control of logging their work hours to take the pressure off you and free up your time.
