Employee Monitoring and Productivity for Remote Teams

4.84/5 (74 reviews)

Monitask overview

What is Monitask?

Monitask delivers employee monitoring solutions for companies of all sizes that have remote team members such as freelancers, contractors, remote employees, and employees that work from home occasionally. Tools including advanced screenshot and activity monitors, as well as time tracking capabilities, keep teams focused on the task at hand to boost productivity, efficiency, and accountability across the team. Managers can also access the dashboard via any device to keep track of their team anytime, anywhere.

With Monitask, employees and freelancers are able to manually start a clock when they begin working on an assignment for employers. The application takes screenshots randomly or at assigned intervals as evidence that work is being performed. Monitoring tools allow employers to view mouse and keyboard activity, check the programs their employee or freelancer is using, as well as view reports to see which program is being used and for how long. Users can create projects for their team and assign relevant employees in order to gather all the information they need on the project’s progress.

Monitask gives employers a clear picture of the time teams spend on each project by providing them with statistics, and the ability to generate reports. Reports enable employers to determine the cost of each project, analyze their employees’ output, as well as use the information to create invoices. Team members can also use the reporting function to view their hours worked online.

Probably the best time tracking system I've tried

I've used it for the duration of its trial and I love it! My trial is going to be over in a few days and I'm planning to purchase.

Pros
Whether logging in as an admin or end-user, the system is super easy to use. There's no steep learning curve or anything like that. It tracks time and works as a keylogger to better track productivity, my staff and I love it because it helped us keep productivity levels at 90%

Cons
I wish there was a way to set up shifts and to process payroll based on those shifts.

Overall, very good app, if not the mobile app absence, this would be our winner.

Pros
We were testing few apps to pick up the most appropriate, and Monitask was the easiest to implement. Although we run the trial period only, still impressed with customization options, and a very user-friendly interface and support.

Cons
There is no mobile app for employees, those who work "on the go" can't track the timing. Also, there is still a place to improve in the reporting section.

Overall I liked this system but without few features mentioned above, it will be difficult to use it for long term.

Pros
User friendly interface, Required reporting features. Main thing I liked about this is ability to select currency for each individual separately.

Cons
It do not have some of the features like 1) We can not provide access to client for reviewing project and where time is consumed 2) It do not have a way to put non billable hours. For example, if I have worked 5 hours on a project and want to bill my client only 2 hours. I can not do that. I have to delete 3 hours in order to do it but I need those 3 hours information for future reference. 3) It do not Integrate with task management software like Office 365, Jira 4) Good to have video recording feature apart from screenshot

I used to use a time tracking software but it didn't take screenshots and remind me of idle time. I like both of the features because it gives some accountability.

Pros
It is very easy to use and the design of the platform is clean and easy to understand.

Cons
I liked other software to download an app,I don't believe this app has that option.

As an entrepreneur, I often feel guilt that I'm not spending "enough" time working on various projects. Once I started using Monitask, everything became objective and my time has started to become more valuable. Things that get measured get improved. This objective feedback on how I'm spending my time has given me so much encouragement and motivation. I can see progress happen, and I'm able to feel better about the work I do.

Pros
Ease of use Weekly reports by project that give you a visual overview of how you spent your time

Cons
I would like a colorful chart or graph that gives a visual breakdown of how I spent my workweek (time spent by project). At least they provide a numerical total hours logged by project, and by week.
