ActivTrak overview

ActivTrak is an employee monitoring and productivity measurement platform that allows companies to gain insights on and improve employee productivity. The solution allows users to block employees from accessing specific websites, create alarms to capture unauthorized activity, and monitor web and app traffic and usage to safeguard the organization. Users can view activity logs and screenshots from monitored workstations, and analyze reports to manage productivity levels throughout the company.

ActivTrak works by installing an invisible agent onto a single or multiple workstations to measure activity. The agent is then able to collect all URLs, title bars, and screenshots, and allows administrators to shut down applications remotely, notifying them of any flagged usage. Screenshots allow administrators to see what the device’s user sees by capturing their entire screen. Screenshots can triggered by alarms, such as keywords within a URL, or scheduled by time intervals.

Real-time activity monitoring provides administrators with a live data stream of the current activity from workstations. Data is displayed in rows with information on open websites and applications, how long they were visited or used, and various other data points. User activity reports categorize each user’s activity as productive, unproductive or idle on a color-coded timeline which can be filtered and re-organized by user/group and date/time. Reports also provide information on top websites, applications, or categories for each group, user, or devices.

ActivTrak’s website blocking features provide information on low productivity websites, or distracting activities that should be blocked from individual users, groups, or all workstations at once. Alarms can be setup to trigger screenshots, popup messages to device users, email notifications to account administrators, as well as remote application termination on devices. Data leak prevention (DLP) features help prevent sensitive data from leaving the office, and secure sensitive information by controlling what end users can access or transfer.

Productivity is always hard to measure, but this software makes it easy to see what programs or websites are consuming or distracting from our work goals. I don't like to use it as a spy tool. I prefer to use it to troubleshoot areas for improvement. Or use the screenshots to see when an error or crash occurs to see the events that lead up to the software fail. This is a GREAT troubleshooter option, see what the station saw. Love that it can be accessed from remote seamlessly. The easy interface and how easy it is to code applications and website as productive or non-productive. It gives a GREAT picture of the productivity of the workstations. I like that it can block websites as well with one caveat (see cons). I will say this blocker is 100% effective, where websites blocked by the router can be accessed using an alternate method. The Screenshots are helpful, not as a spy tool, but in determining errors when one of our programs is having trouble, we can see the error screen the operator saw through the screenshots. Great troubleshooting. Screenshots also let me assist the operator when I am in a remote location, I can see what they are asking and assist quicker than actually remoting into the workstation for minor questions. EVERY INTERACTION WITH THIS PROVIDER HAS BEEN MORE THAN EXCELLENT, and they are eager to help and take suggestions and criticism to assist or improve their already great product. You are not alone after you download or purchase. Another good feature is on the workstation the program runs in the background and is completely invisible to workstation, it doesn't slow the system down, nor cause the workstation any troubles.

I allows me to closely monitor my children's PC usage to keep them out of trouble and on track with their school work.Given the heft price I like the fact that there's a free version of the software. From a feature perspective I like the ability to see a history of screenshots and the ability to monitor usage real-time. I also like the new feature that was recently added that allows me to easily exclude people I do not want to monitor. Another really great thing about this product is not the product itself, but the technical support team that supports it. The quality of help I received and the timeliness of responses was absolutely awesome!

Quick and easy reporting about employee activity on work computers. Specifically, productivity, activity log and real time screen viewing.ActivTrak does everything you need and nothing you don't. It's user friendly, visually appealing and robust. Additionally, they release the most updates of any related software. I have tried more than six applications for this purpose and theirs is the best.

Increased employee productivity and decreased employee turnover. Our employees know we monitor their workstations, so they behave and don't misuse our IT resources. That's one less reason to fire them.Easy of installation and use, cloud hosting, and browser access from anywhere in the planet. The price is also reasonable. The free trial saved us thousands of dollars in wasted wages. We suspected that one young law clerk was squandering our time and resources because of his low productivity. Three hours after we started monitoring his workstation (with the free trial) we fired him on the spot. We then implemented ActivTrak firm-wide (with prior announcement) and everyone is being honest on their workstations. Trust but verify.

With all the distractions from social media, streaming video, etc. employees can be tempted to waste a lot of time on the clock on unproductive activities when they believe no one is watching. This software is proving invaluable in restoring operator productivity and preventing restricted activities on company computer equipment that could result in viruses as well as wasting network bandwidth.Two main features that have been the most helpful are first, the ability to easily create custom alarm triggers along with personalized popup messages to the offending PC/operator. As soon as the employees realize the activities are being watched and flagged they immediately cleaned up their act. Second, the ability to produce a screen shot at timed intervals and upon trigger of an alarm allows us to paint a clear picture of what activities employees are wasting the most time doing as well as spot activities that may not easily trigger an alarm but are restricted based on company policy.
