Any business should try to maximize on their output. Since the goal is for the business to grow and gain more customers, business owners have been coming up with ways to increase employee productivity, improve overall efficiency and ultimately: increase profitability.
The necessity for tools which can help this process has increased over time, and there’s now a whole industry called computer monitoring software.
Here’s how the tool works: you install an agent on every employees’ computer, and it works in the background tracking their computer activities. It records which apps and websites they’re using, for how long, and it can also take multiple screenshots per hour.
You also get admin or managerial access in the dashboard, where you can see the data from all your employees, compare their productivity levels etc. Productivity is calculated based on the way you label apps and websites your team is using. In most cases you can categorize them as productive, unproductive, and neutral, so the software can calculate productive time at work.
Companies which are using a monitoring software swear by it, and see it as a necessity.
As we mentioned in the beginning, every business owner wants to have a better business, and the main way to do it is through a productive workforce. Employee monitoring software acts as a productivity booster for several reasons.
One of them is just the fact that it exists. Employees are aware their behavior is monitoring, so they want to look their best, thus, they’ll try harder.
On the other hand, though reports you can notice where your employees are having issues, whether certain tasks or programs aren’t completely clear to them. You can use this knowledge to organize more training sessions for these employees, helping them to become more productive that way.
