Worried about whether your remote workforce is working or not? Don’t be!
With the right employee monitoring software, you can easily keep track of your remote workforce. These software track and monitor how much time a remote worker spends on a specific task, site or app. This helps you get a better idea of what they’re up to during work hours.
1. Time Doctor
A major problem with most remote work tools are that they’re complicated to use. They require a lot of manual input which could be a big turnoff for most employees. Luckily, Time Doctor is super easy to use.
All an employee has to do is start the timer before they start a task. TimeDoctor will quietly run in the background – calculating the time spent and sites accessed during this time. Your team doesn’t have to manually enter anything – all they have to do is start and stop the timer! Just because your employees are manually starting and stopping the timer doesn’t mean that they can exaggerate their working hours! Time Doctor has features that make it nearly impossible to fake data. Whenever an employee accesses unproductive sites like these, the app automatically sends them a pop-up asking them if they’re still working. This little nudge is usually enough to get them off the social media site and back to work.
2. Time Use Report
This report is a breakdown of the time spent on all tasks by an employee in a given period. You’ll be able to see what tasks they worked on and how long it took them. For example, if you see that a task took too long, you could have a coaching session with that team member about how to do it faster the next time.
3. Timeline Daily Report
The timeline daily report gives you a complete breakdown of the time spent by all your employees in chronological order. You’ll know the sequence of tasks each team member was working on and how long each activity was for. This is useful while evaluating unproductive employees. By looking into how they are spending their day, you can advise them on how to become more productive.
4. Projects Report
The projects report gives you a breakdown of the total time spent on a project-wise basis. You’ll also see who’s worked on different tasks in the project and for how long. Useful for calculating how much time is being spent by an individual or a team on each task and project. It helps check if time estimates are being exceeded and even arrive at estimates for future projects.
5. Attendance Report
The attendance report gives you a list of absentees in the week with their reasons for absence. It’s a simple way to keep stock of who’s been missing from work recently.
6. Web and App Usage Report
This report gives you a breakdown of each site and app an employee accessed during working hours only. It also shows you how long they spent on each of these sites. This allows you to check if people are wasting time on irrelevant sites like shopping or social media.
