Employee Monitoring Software for Productivity Insight,

Analyze employee activity and discover how work gets done.

ActivTrak Employee Monitoring showing productivity by employee

The Challenge:
How to effectively monitor and analyze employee behavior

Businesses lack visibility into employee behavior that tells managers how work actually gets done. This creates inefficiency at the team and individual level. At the same time, employee privacy is a top concern as employee monitoring ‘spyware’ has made a recent comeback. How does a business continue to optimize and increase efficiency while balancing employee productivity and privacy?
