Increase Productivity by Increasing Operational Efficiency: Know Who is Working And Who is Not
When off-line, staff can use DVDs, flash-based games (which do not need administrative rights to run on a PC and so are difficult to identify and block) or USB devices to get around the rules.
The Solution : Monitoring User Activity at the Source
It only records time spent actively on the screen and will stop recording if there is no keyboard or mouse activity for three minutes. Using this approach, there are no excuses that people can use to avoid responsibility, for example, “Facebook was open, but minimised while I was actually doing work” or “I opened YouTube for two minutes, but then left it on while I went to attend the Monday meeting!” The system records the minimum time they must have spent on non-productive activity.
The system can give an aggregate picture of what is happening throughout the organisation or by department, displaying a pie chart to indicate the potential overall productivity loss and the cost incurred. Department heads can then drill down from the top-level view to see exactly who are the top offenders, what they have been doing, for how long and when. The reports produced are indisputable and actionable.
