Sapience tracks employee time on their computer applications and optionally smartphones, providing the employee with complete visibility and analysis of their daily activities on a local application. It smartly differentiates between work and personal time, delivering only high level work patterns to a central server. With Sapience, management can see collective efforts of their teams and guide their teams to prioritize those that generate business value.
A Client dashboard on their own computer is like a ‘mirror’ or self-quantification of the user’s work day, whereas the Server dashboard is intended for a high level view into the team’s work focus.
Sapience sees time/effort as a business’ most important currency. Yet in today’s corporate environment, our entire workforce sit in front of a computer all day, with little insight about whether our individual and aggregate effort is optimal. Through visibility, if the quality of effort can improve 20-30%, that has a huge impact on the organization’s ability to deliver value.
Sapience is an important tool both for employees and management, helping users see where they can be more productive, and giving managers the ability to guide their teams towards optimal output. The information made available to employees helps trigger self-improvement and a conscious effort to prioritize core activities and stay focused at work.
Any company where employees work extensively with computers can benefit from Sapience’s productivity solution. The solution is most popular with organizations that work to fulfill the expectations of internal and external clients.
The key verticals for Sapience deployment are IT services, global software companies, knowledge process outsourcing providers, non-voice business process outsourcing providers, and engineering services. Back offices of banking, financial services, insurance, and retail firms also find Sapience especially beneficial.

Sapience serves as a mirror for an employee’s work, showing their work start and end times, total time on work, and distribution of work across various activities. This can be utilized for more mindful work, by optimizing time spent on meetings and emails through best practices, ensuring focused effort on critical tasks, and limiting unnecessary non-work browsing and breaks. The objective is to deliver best possible effort while working, thereby freeing up more time to be with family and at home.
One of the best features of Sapience is its ability to protect employee privacy. When personal activity is conducted on a PC, a user’s activity is intelligently disregarded, increasing the employee’s comfort level with having the app run in the background. There are other measures available for companies to restrict or even block visibility about the employee’s work data.
Through Flow Time, a user can view the entire day as a continuum of time on work and non-work, breaks taken from the computer, and time allocation to various activities and applications.
Flow Time also shows how much uninterrupted time was spent on a specific activity. The Flow Time can help employees to work towards 2-3 stretches of highly focused work during office hours.
Through a web based server application, managers can view data for an entire team. They can view trends related to time on Work, Activities and Applications on a Daily, Weekly or Monthly basis. This enables them to guide their team towards more effective effort, and review if the trends show improvement.
The Activity and Application views, for example, show the average time spent by each team member on specific activities. These can include engineering, documentation, web browsing, and using boxed software products like Microsoft Office or Adobe Photoshop. A side benefit is that the IT staff can track actual software license usage compared to purchased licenses, and also whether any unauthorized apps and software are being used.
Managers can assess capacity utilization in various groups, and optimize work allocation. More headcount can be allocated to teams with high workload from those with relatively less work. It becomes easier to ensure that headcount is assigned to match strategic goals of the company.
Sapience allows businesses to pull reports on team and optionally employee work related activities. This data can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for printing and emailing to others.
Managers can compile reports on an entire group reporting to them, or drill down to specific teams, and optionally individuals.
Automated timesheets, wherein a breakdown of time spent by each team member on projects and activities, can be generated, which each user can verify and then send for further approval.
From time to time, a manager has a need to gain insight into how a specific employee is working each day. This insight could help with performance reviews or simply help a supervisor learn more about an employee’s workload.
If a supervisor seeks to learn more about how much time is being dedicated to a specific duty, that can be chosen in the daily effort area. Supervisors can also pull data on how much time a user spends online and offline each day.
Sapience has the ability to integrate with an organization’s existing Active Directory and email server for user authentication and emails. Sapience can also integrate with the ERP/HR I.S. system that holds the employee list needed to populate Sapience. This import allows business to seamlessly replicate their organization tree into Sapience.
Businesses can also export Sapience data to external analytics software. This can be an Excel with pivot grid interface or a Business Intelligence tool.
Sapience licensing model is simple – the organization pays for annual subscription per user.
