Why Deploy Remote Employee Monitoring Software?
Today’s “work from anywhere” world makes it harder for business leaders to keep an eye over their workforce. Unproductive employees are much more difficult to spot when your team is remote. Employee monitoring software is a way to optimize your entire workforce productivity, no matter where they work.
Protect Company Assets
When people work remotely, they need to access company assets remotely, creating added risk. Poorly secured network connections and the use of personal computers and mobile devices make the situation even more risky. An employee monitoring solution can give you a peace of mind that your valuable data is being accessed properly and by employees with the right privileges.
Many organizations deal with complex corporate and regulatory compliance requirements and audits, especially in healthcare, legal and financial services industries. Employee monitoring software makes staying compliant and running audits much easier, with real-time alerts to customizable reporting and dashboards.

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.
