ActivTrak ends the ambiguity of having employees working remotely

"When we look at staff utilization and realization rates we can now add the productivity report and gain a clearer picture as to what the employees are doing. It also allows management to see when most productivity drops off allowing us to create solutions, such as lunch breaks, relaxing time, and other cultural shifts that work to eliminate these periods."

FAQs about productivity monitoring:

How do you monitor productivity?

Monitoring productivity starts with understanding what productivity means for your organization. Once that is established, you gather relevant user activity data to understand what employee activities help or hinder productivity. Productivity monitoring software, like ActivTrak, can make this process easy, insightful, and ethical.

There is no one size fits all definition for productivity. Each business has unique aspects for productivity success. A critical analysis of your business success markers will help you understand which key metrics point to successful productivity. They could include revenue goals, a production quota, or service ticket objectives. Keep in mind that quantity of time spent working does not always equate to quality.

Once you have those productivity guideposts, it’s important to discover what employee activities feed productivity and set appropriate goals and policies based on those insights.

How does productivity tracking software work?

Productivity tracking software collects data on user activity, usually via an agent on the individual user’s computer. Employee behavior and activities are displayed in views to understand how productive employees are during working hours. Businesses use that data to discover trends in productivity and can answer questions like ‘Do my employees have the technology they need to do their jobs?’, ‘What habits do my employees display that serve or hinder productivity?’, and ‘How are my employees managing their time?’ With actionable insights, business leaders can make informed decisions and collaborate to improve productivity organization-wide.

Can companies track productivity and performance effectively?

With the right data and insights – yes. Employee productivity software can help analyze employee behavior and give organizations the visibility they need to make informed decisions. If using employee productivity software to track the productivity of your employees, one can often see negative trends before they impact goals and head issues off at the pass or elevate insights to influence company policy to influence positive change. Over time, those performance metrics could change as work conditions change or company goals shift. Using employee productivity software can help validate changes and give decision makers the data they need to verify decisions.

What is ActivTrak’s approach to productivity monitoring and employee monitoring?

Improving productivity organization-wide requires creating a baseline with which to measure from. Creating that baseline necessitates the collection and monitoring of employee activity data. We know employee monitoring and activity analysis have a mixed history and association with surveillance and heavy oversight. ActivTrak intends to change that by focusing on the real output of employee monitoring: improved productivity.

We designed ActivTrak from an ethical stance: with the foundational principles of transparency, collaboration and informed insight. We’ve willfully developed a powerful platform that focuses on the collection of contextual data, avoiding intrusive employee monitoring technologies like video surveillance and continuous screenshots. We challenge users of our product to join us on our journey to move employee monitoring from the time of oversight and into the results and data-driven space that is productivity insights and optimization of work.
