Helpful for mid-sized companies

Reviewed 8 months ago

My business partner told me about this software so I decided to try it in my own company. The problem was that I’d noticed some departments got less productive so I needed to change something in the company’s business process. My IT department installed the program on all company computers within an hour so I can say that the installation is super quick and easy. Further, the app recorded all user activities and showed them to me in graphs and charts so i could check every worker’s productivity. The app helped me detect slackers in several departments and boost their productivity.

Pros

"Quick and easy installation; recording of visited websites and used apps; tracking of active and inactive time; attendance recording (the app shows when the computer was turned on and off); live viewing of computer screens. "

Cons

I believe that the price could be a bit lower for a small number of computers. And I would love to have more time to test the program - the trial is too short for me.

Makes company owner's life easier

Reviewed 5 years ago

The decision to implement this kind of system in my office, was probably one of the best I have made for my business. A friend of mine who is also a business owner, but with more employees, also uses a system like that, but a more expensive one. So after hearing from him about it, I decided to get one as well. I chose CleverControl mostly because it offered fully-featured free version, so I was able...

Pros

Fully-featured trial, both time tracking and detailed reports on activity, easy to work with, really useful for a head of a company, who is involved in staff's work lives.

Cons

The installation is easy enough, but at first I found it hard to navigate the online account. Also there sometimes too many screenshots are made, so I had to turn them off for some computers, which are most active.

Good software

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am not too concerned about employees using social media from time to time or get distracted from the computer because I do understand that it is impossible to work for 8 hours straight in front of a screen. But at the same time, I wanted to see if any of the staff members tend to abuse their right for coffee breaks and snack time. And with this software, it is easy to do. I can see full statistics...

Pros

Unlimited Free Trial - before purchase I had the opportunity to make sure that the program works on all my computers Reasonably priced for a small business Great timekeeping and activity tracking features Live Viewing Useful printing control - good for checking if somebody treats company's supplies as personal property

Cons

Some functions cannot be turned off. I wanted to stop logging keystrokes, in order to not record employees' passwords, just to keep their privacy but found that impossible to do.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review, Raymond! We appreciate that you have chosen our software. We would like to notify you that in the latest software update we have added the feature of turning off keylogging and other features which were not customizable previously. If you have any other questions or need support, you can always reach our support team through your account or our website.

Good instrument for monitoring new employees

Reviewed 5 years ago

In summer we hire a lot of additional staff for 3-4 months, and they work on our office computers under temporary user accounts we create for them. So we needed a program that can monitor certain accounts on a PC. We read a few reviews about CleverControl and decided to try it. It worked just perfectly for us, we chose all new accounts for monitoring, and could see everything the new employees did during their working time. It was very important to make sure, that they understand the tasks and do not accidentally gain access to sensitive information. We initially wanted to use the program temporarily, but we will keep using it on all office computers.

Pros

Site Blocker by category and by URL - I can block any website or a whole group of websites. Takes screenshots of all windows. Monitors Internet usage. Monitors USB connections. Records working time.

Cons

No subscription by month - this was offputting at first.

Simple program for a first-time user that really helps in management

Reviewed 5 years ago

In the last couple of months almost all of my staff started to come in late, so I finally decided to get a monitoring program for my office to boost up the productivity a little. As a small business owner, for me the cost is the priority, that's why I decided to try free programs first, and then maybe get a paid one. In addition, I am not very 'computer savvy'. I found CleverControl to be very simple...

Pros

Simple to use Many useful features Free

Cons

Can't really find any in a free program. Although 'Alerts by keywords' function would be very useful in such a program as CleverControl.
