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.
