We are happy to announce the availability of ActivTrak Premium, a powerful evolution of our platform packed with new metrics and dashboards to meet the needs of the post-pandemic, hybrid workplace. 

With hybrid work here to stay and digital transformation continuing to accelerate, ActivTrak Premium can help you engage employees, cultivate healthier work habits, and promote a culture of continuous improvement that empowers you to set big goals – and achieve them. Our new dashboards allow you to quickly spot patterns that lead to success and answer questions like:

  • Are team members able to focus? 
  • Who is most at-risk of burnout?
  • What tools are helping or hindering productivity at home or in the office?
  • Are newly implemented strategies to improve work/life balance helping? 

Everyone across the organization benefits from the insights in Premium. Employees work wiser by understanding where they spend their time, managers gain meaningful data that allows them to be exceptional coaches, operations teams improve processes, HR can work with managers to ensure everyone is engaged and not on the verge of burnout, and executives can track the health of their organization while creating an employee-first culture that sets team members up for success.

Our mission at ActivTrak is to help you create an environment where employees can excel and the business can achieve great things.

Help unlock productivity potential with expert insights that empower people, optimize processes, and maximize technology.

1. Optimize your workday with insights around productivity and focus time.    

With ActivTrak, you can easily understand if your team has healthy work habits that provide enough focus time for creative thinking, problem solving, and development. Get insights into how long teams are able to stay focused without interruptions, view total work hours versus the number of productive and focused hours, track productive and focused time versus goals set by teams, and compare team efficiency to an organization’s average.

The Executive Summary provides quick insight into productivity indicators at a team level.

2. Understand top workplace distractions with the Work Efficiency Report

According to a recent PwC survey, businesses lose $600 billion a year to workplace distractions. Can you afford that? With ActivTrak Premium, you can understand which applications and websites affect employee productivity and focused work and view where time is spent to highlight unnecessary distractions and attention shifts created by inefficient workflows.

3. Manage burnout risk with the Workload Balance Report

Studies show that organizations that help teams avoid burnout are more likely to outperform their competition, retain top performers, and attract new talent. Are you struggling to get visibility into who needs help?

We created the new Workload Balance Report in ActivTrak Premium so you can view work habits across teams to identify those that work long hours and off-hours on a consistent basis, set utilization thresholds, and see how settings impact team classification (overutilized, healthy, underutilized); helping you help others rebalance where they spend their time. Learn more.

The Workload Balance report provides visibility into which employees are consistently working long hours to help identify burnout risk.

4. Get visibility into technology usage & adoption with the Technology Usage Report

With application sprawl at an all time high, keeping track of application usage, especially SaaS apps, can be time consuming, hard to maintain, prone to inaccuracies, and costly. According to a 2020 SaaS trends report, a typical company uses 137 unique SaaS applications and wastes over $135,000 annually on unused applications. You can solve this with ActivTrak Premium by viewing which technologies are utilized and measuring adoption changes across teams. Using our Technology Usage Report, you can also identify frequency of use and duration across top apps/sites and categories and analyze adoption trends for specific apps/sites and categories by clicking and drilling down for more detail. Learn more

See which applications and websites are most heavily utilized.

5. Enable employees to self-manage with Personal Productivity Insights

Empower employees to optimize their productivity while maintaining healthy work habits.  ActivTrak Premium now provides insights into personal work habits so employees can access their own data to understand what hinders or enables their own productivity, focus and well-being, compare activity habits to team goals and trends, view focus time versus attention shift time, evaluate the applications and sites most involved in attention shifts, and leverage guidance from our Productivity Lab experts on how to maintain work balance and wellness. Learn more

The Personal Insights Dashboard gives employees insight into their work habits, including the applications and websites that cause attention shifts and the times of day when they tend to be most focused.

6. Easily share insights across your organization with Scheduled Email Delivery 

Provide the tools to help employees design their day and develop critical skills for personal development. Application users can self-subscribe to any Premium Insights Dashboard to receive a snapshot of their activity via email on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. These personal insights can also be shared with direct reports or team members as a way to collaborate on how to replicate success patterns and further develop work habits that lead to improved work experience and well-being. Learn more.

Self-subscribe to Premium Insights dashboards and share them with team members via daily, weekly, or monthly emails.

7. Set Baselines and Measure Success with Benchmarks & Goals

Use historic benchmarks to set and track future goals across teams, view benchmarks and trends for productivity and focus across a team’s top quartile, and view daily trends to understand how productivity and focus have changed in the previous 12 weeks. Learn more. 

Establish productivity benchmarks and goals, and track the progress of individuals and the team as a whole.

The future of work is already here
