Why use employee PC monitoring software?

Track employee activity during designated work hours with the easiest-to-use employee monitoring software. Whether employee monitoring systems can be a standalone app installed on employee computers or a separate feature of time tracking software, such as in the TimeCamp example.

Activity tracking software serves both small businesses and enterprises and significantly enhances productivity of on-site and remote workers.

Activity monitoring

The employee tracking software creates activity logs for each user based on their computer and internet usage. It's the easiest way to effectively monitor working hours and analyze employees' productivity levels. Employee productivity monitoring software provides invaluable data about employees' work habits and how they affect a team's productivity.

Reduce employee lateness

TimeCamp registers when employees start and end their work. Once they turn their computer on, the employee monitoring system automatically clocks them in and starts tracking work hours until they reach the designated time per day or when they turn the computer off. This way, it's easy to point out who arrives at work late and how often it happens within a specific period.

Detect idle time

Get real-time insights into employee activities to quickly identify periods of inactivity and address them by offering targeted feedback, setting clearer productivity goals, and implementing necessary adjustments to workflows. Enable desktop app pop-ups asking about the reason behind the offline activity to keep the employees' focus on the right track.

Productivity Analysis

Keep your team focused and improve employee productivity painlessly with rich-data performance reports and tools for employee self-checks, such as real-time dashboards and computer activity reports. The data the employee monitoring software provides is the most valuable and unintrusive resource for advice on improving employee productivity. Control-based measures won't help your employees boost productivity; they'll stress them and make them more prone to making mistakes.

Non-intrusive, privacy-preserving approach

TimeCamp does not offer intrusive employee monitoring features like keystroke logging, email monitoring, remote desktop control, or screen recording. Instead, it relies on automated time tracking and user activity monitoring and allows managers to create detailed productivity reports that provide actionable insights into employee engagement without harming their privacy.

Productivity self-checks

TimeCamp offers also productivity tools for employees to do regular performance self-checks. They can access a dashboard that provides real-time insights based on productivity metrics such as hours worked per day or tracked for specific projects, top websites and sites, and top activity categories.

Goal-oriented employee monitoring tools

Moreover, employee monitoring software with a goal-setting feature helps measure productivity according to objectives that not only the employee wants to achieve but also will positively impact the overall team productivity.

Remote workforce time tracking

An employee monitoring solution comes in handy for tracking remote employees' work hours and registering their attendance.

Track start and end work hours

Once an employee turns their device on, the computer monitoring software automatically clocks them in (the same goes for clocking out once they turn the computer off). This way, the company is kept informed about their presence at work, and both sides get clear evidence that contracted work hours are achieved.

Manage attendance

TimeCamp's employee monitoring solutions provide top-notch employee attendance tracking, based on registered time and computer activity. Generate attendance reports per user or the entire team to streamline payroll and keep papers regarding employee absence in order, even if your team members work miles away.


What kind of employee activity does the employee monitoring tool track?

With TimeCamp, your employees can rest assured that the tool collects only work-related data:

  • working hours,

  • websites browsed (and apps used) on job devices,

  • location tracking data in the case of mobile workers.

Hours tracked and assigned to specific projects and tasks are the perfect source for worker productivity examination.

How to introduce employee monitoring software to my in-office or remote team?

Implementing employee monitoring software shouldn't be introduced as a matter of fact. Unfortunately, employee tracking still seems to be associated with a tool for spying on employee activity. Besides, such obtrusive employee tracking tools installed on their computers without any explanations may raise some data security concerns.

If a tool collects too much information per user, it's entirely normal to worry about privacy in case of data leaks or insider threats. That's why it's important to handle this issue carefully, yet without excessive sugarcoating. And face-to-face, so organizing a tool introduction event where you'll address all employees' concerns is highly recommendable.

Explain why the company decided to start monitoring employees

Whether it's for productivity analysis to detect flaws in employees' performance or for attendance tracking purposes, clarifying the reason at the beginning helps avoid doubts that may arise and negatively affect work processes.

Specify data the tool collects

Once they understand the purpose of implementing real-time monitoring software, specify what kind of activity the time tracking tool will collect data about. Based on TimeCamp's example, an employee monitoring app tracks time spent on tasks and registers browsed websites and apps during the hours between turning the computer on and off. It also takes screenshots every ten minutes; however, this is an optional, paid feature.

Address employees' concerns

If not introduced thoughtfully, even the best employee monitoring software with a user-friendly interface may raise suspicions among staff members. Especially in case of remote teams; they may start asking themselves: Does my boss not trust me? How can I be sure it's only for productivity tracking purposes? Organize a special meeting to address all your employees' doubts and concerns, and explain how the monitoring software works, and what kind of data it collects. Be transparent!

Do employee monitoring tools respect employee privacy?

Absolutely! Respecting employees' rights to keep their sensitive data secure should be the employer's utmost priority. Ultimately, a business owner or manager who trusts their employees can put their mind at ease and expect the highest performance without the need to control their every step.

Does employee monitoring software integrate with task management tools?

Best employee monitoring software like TimeCamp offers a wide range of task management tools it integrates with. Combining time tracking apps with project trackers creates a centralized hub for managing daily assignments and tracking work progress.
