What does Blippa mean? – To scan, touch, pay or activate
Based in Stockholm Sweden, Blippa was officially founded in 2020 and is using its technology to create a unique way of creating and managing physical and digital objects. Through its no-code platform, you can create and share unique object-based information with others.
Blippa’s motto for technology would in Swedish be called – “Utan strul” which can be translated to “without hassle”, ie we must facilitate and remove all obstacles along the way so that anyone can easily create and go digital swiftly using our services. Without being dependent on an app – anyone with a smartphone is a potential user of our technology and we know that we help our clients to reach the largest possible audience.
The road to where we stand today with our platform has been long and difficult and our concept has gone through multiple iterations.
Getting something complex to be experienced as swift and easy takes time and patience.
In many cases, we have focused on things that others do not care so much about or even have not seen a true value in making digital. A boat, a pump, a fan, a bag or a cat?
But the more we have worked and put our effort into it, the more we have become convinced that we are onto something big.
We asked ourselves:
What if you could make anything go digital by just scanning the object with a cell phone camera?
Through Blippa’s complete set of tools, we equip ordinary people, without specific code knowledge, with everything they need to succeed with their project from idea, to no-code development and testing to distribution and activation.
Blippa’s platform and technology are built to handle billions of objects in operation worldwide. Even though we praise No-code, we prioritize our own and other developers. We want to make it possible for as many people as possible to integrate with Blippa’s platform.
Our platform also allows you to share object pages with other partners, customers or suppliers.
In principle, it can be said that each object can live its own life. With functions, role management, design, links and labels.
