Keeping a watchful eye on your employees especially on what they do online and how they are maximizing their time during work hours is crucial to maintaining productivity levels in the organization.
At home, parents also have the responsibility to monitor what their kids are doing especially when they are exposed to the threats of cyberspace.
In line with these measures, Birch Grove Software, a company based in Texas has developed a free employee monitoring software called ActivTrak that can track computer related activities in detail from application logs, documents opened to sites visited in just a few clicks from a remote desktop in real-time.
The software has a client-server architecture that allows an administrator to install invisible clients on the computer being monitored which any user without administrator rights can remove or deactivate.
The free version of ActivTrak can only monitor up to three (3) computers (without any functional limitations) which is enough for small private business and homes with children using computers regularly.
Compared to most types of remote monitoring software that I used, ActivTrak is the only one giving their tool for free and not just for one but for three computers as clients.
Being a software critic myself, I normally have to try and test these tools before posting about them but this time, I’m leaving it to you, the reading public, to find out and tell me what you think about this software.
You can download activtrak from here and use it for free. I might as well come up with another post about this so stay tuned.
