HOW EMPMONITOR WORKS?
EmpMonitor is one of the most comprehensive software tools available for monitoring employees online activities to ensure greater productivity and safety. This free, cloud-based monitoring software will track your workers’ application and web usage and report directly back to your account. With EmpMonitor, you can install the program on a single workstation, or all your workstations, and begin seeing statistical results in only a few minutes without anyone knowing! This allows you to protect your employees, make sure everyone is on track, and have greater control in the workplace.
Unlike firewalls, which simply block certain websites, EmpMonitor specifically gives you what websites are being viewed and what applications are being used as well as the amount of time users are spending on those sites and applications.You can see what’s happening on the desktop of each workstation. If one of your employees is using company time to watch home movies, you will be able to track them and advise them of correct company policy.
EmpMonitor Agent Tour:
Every EmpMonitor is unique in that it contains a specialized code assigned to one particular account. This means that you don’t have to enter login/password information or make any additional settings.
You can download an agent with the help of support. Install agent on the workstation(s) you would like to monitor, Within 2-3 minutes you will begins seeing data on your dashboard Once installed, the EmpMonitor Agent immediately begins to collect productivity usage data, such as title bars (on both websites and applications) and URLs, the time of each activity and when the device is at idle. This information is reported back to the cloud whenever a secure connection is available. If there is no internet connection due to an outage, travel or any other reason, the tracker keeps a local copy of the captured activity data on the device until a secure network connection is established, at which point the agent uploads all activity since the last upload.
EmpMonitor easy-to-read dashboard is designed to give you a high-level overview of the activity on all of your monitored devices.
As you log into EmpMonitor Dashboard, you’re greeted with the following data summaries:
- Quick stats showing productive and non-productive time spent.
- Today’s productivity report.
- Recent screenshots, top categories.
- Top websites and applications, top users, and a recent activity log.
CAPTURE USER SCREENS
Empmonitor can take snapshots of your desktop at set intervals of time, allowing you to visually see what is happening. The screenshot viewer also has a built in slideshow and controls for easy viewing
With real-time monitoring, you can check in on exactly what’s happening on your monitored devices at any point, from anywhere Real-time Monitoring lets administrators view a live data stream of the active window on any monitored device’s screen.
Live data View:
This report lets administrators monitor user activity as it’s being transmitted to the system without having to navigate through reports. Data is displayed in individual rows with information on the open website or application, how long the user has been there, and every other data point the software captures
Reports are an important part of evaluating employees.Admin can generate report date wise and save them up in pdf format.
EmpMonitor provides the following reports:
Productivity Reports are a great place to start your research into what activities are wasting time.
Productivity Reports give managers an at-a-glance picture of activities on their monitored devices through any given time span by taking a data ‘snapshot’ every five minutes (or any interval you set).
# TOP WEBSITES/TOP APPLICATIONS
These are two separate reports (one displays application-specific usage data, one provides website-specific usage data), but their functionality is essentially the same.
Each report gives the total time of overall website and application usage, then productive, unproductive, and idle timestamps of your device usage in the top section labeled Quick Stats.
you’ll find the actual website or application report. This report analyzes all of the usage on your computer (every site, every application, every action in each), then lists it by most time spent with what category (productive or unproductive) the activity falls under, how much time was spent, and what percentage of your total time that activity represents.
Top Websites is great for finding out where your team is spending most of their time online, and what is contributing to your productivity changes
Top Applications can be used for many things including software metering. The report makes it easy for administrators to find out who’s using what software, how they’re using it.
In our experience, we’ve learned that most of your lost productivity gets surfed away somewhere on the internet. A simple solution for this is EmpMonitor's powerful Website Blocking (Firewall).
The Website Blocking tab is where you’ll go after you’ve done some research and discovered sites of low productivity, or distracting activities you wish to block. Social networking sites are usually the first to be blocked, but some clients take it a step further and block popular high-bandwidth sites (like Netflix and Spotify) to save costs, or popular job searching websites. To block a website, either enter a new domain and check the box.
EmpMonitor lets users categorize all computer activity (website and applications) as either productive or unproductive. This gives administrators the power to determine what qualifies as productive or unproductive and allows Empmonitor understand how to and where to show the usage data.
As soon as the admin logs in with the credentials supplied in the email they will be redirected to change the password. Once this is complete they will have access to their Dashboard. The next step would be to register an employee, but before that the Admin has to register locations and departments according to his employee’s. After that a storage type has to be selected from Dropbox and MediaFire. Once these information are selected the user will be able to register employees in the departments and locations entered by him previously. After the users are logged in to the desktop app on their systems the admin will be able to monitor activities of the employee’s from the dashboard.
Manager Once the employees have been registered the Admin has an option to add managers and assign employees to managers. These managers will be able to login on the dashboard and only monitor the activities of the employees who are assigned to them by the Admin.
Your storage is used to store screenshots, logs, and other usage data associated with your EmpMonitor account. EmpMonitor allows to integrated with Dropbox and MediaFire.
