QR codes get the Royal Mail stamp of approval

 

At easyLog, we already know that QR codes provide a low-cost, simple and secure way of recording essential clocking data – and so do the many customers who use our QR code attendance app, Location Clock, to record workers’ hours.

Now Royal Mail is getting in on the act by adding QR codes to its stamps. The new stamps, which will still feature an image of the Queen but no longer include a monetary value, are designed to connect physical stamps to the digital world via the Royal Mail app and are being phased in by 31 January 2023.

QR codes: simple, secure and efficient

According to Royal Mail, the smart barcodes are part of drive to reinvent its stamps for the next generation and will improve operational efficiency, enable the introduction of additional security features and pave the way for innovative services.

The easyLog Location Clock app similarly uses QR code technology to create a foolproof, 21st century attendance record. Staff simply download the app to their phone and use it to scan a barcode at their work location. A record of the employee, site, date and time is then sent automatically to the easyLog software. It’s as simple as licking a stamp.
