These productivity values have colors that are easily visible on reports and the dashboard.

  • Drill-down into reports for details on top performers, and top applications usage.
  • See productivity user behavior analytics to understand trends and areas for improvement.
  • Measure focus scores and benchmarks of team productivity.
  • Uncover distractions and view comparisons across teams.
  • Compare trends by displaying the data by day, week, or month.

  • Learn workload patterns to identify misaligned skill sets.
  • Identify employees with excessive social media use which may indicate burnout or flight risk.
  • Leverage trend reports to find the right workload balance for each team member.
  • Share productivity trends with employees and teams to drive engagement.
  • Get onboarding insights of new hire ramp up time to find if any business processes need refining.

Our Approach to Workforce Analytics and Employee Monitoring

Improving team productivity requires the collection and monitoring of data to establish a baseline upon which you can measure improvement. In the past, this has been associated with employee monitoring. We know employee monitoring and activity analysis have a mixed history and association with harsh employee supervision and heavy oversight. ActivTrak intends to change that perspective by focusing on the real output of employee monitoring: improved team productivity.

We designed ActivTrak with ethical intentions:

with founding principles of transparency, collaboration and informed insight. We’ve purposefully developed a powerful platform that focuses on the collection of contextual data, avoiding invasive employee monitoring technologies like continuous screenshots and keystroke logging.

We welcome users of our product to join us on our journey to transition employee monitoring from the days of oversight and into the results and data-driven space that is team productivity insights and optimization of work.
