Why Deploy Productivity Monitoring Software?
Today’s “work from anywhere” world makes it harder for business leaders to keep an eye over their workforce. In fact, 4 out of 5 managers are concerned about the productivity of their remote employees. Productivity monitoring software can help bridge the trust gap between managers and their remote or hybrid teams.
Low Engagement & Quiet Quitting
Remote working environment can be a challenge for new hires, junior team members or employees that might have trouble organizing and motivating themselves. Productivity monitoring software can identify idle time, unproductive activity and even perform psycholinguistic analysis to identify negative sentiments and signs of “quiet quitting.”
Inefficient Workflows & Operations
All too often employees end up performing jobs and tasks they were not hired for. Entire sales team could be stuck in administrative tasks. Customer service might be spending hours in spreadsheets tracking performance data. Activity monitoring tools can quickly spot such inefficiencies and allow for workflow optimization.

How does employee monitoring software work?
Remote monitoring software is available for PCs, Macs, Chromebooks and Android devices. Once installed, it can run discreetly in the background.
This software will track and record detailed information about all the user’s activity. In fact, you can even access a history of the user’s web searches, idle time, instant messages, file movement, productivity, downloads, uploads, print jobs, USB device usage, network access, and more.
Every time a new program is opened, the software will automatically time how long it is used. This information is compiled into a productivity tracking report so you can see how your employees are spending most of their time.
Remote monitoring software also acts as a digital surveillance camera by recording the user’s screen. This allows you to ascertain their activities and understand their productivity and time-consuming tasks.
