ActivTrak
This is excellent software if you wonder what your team is doing when you aren't there. If you want to improve your team's workflows and efficiencies so they get more done with less fatigue, this is a great thing to have. This is not spyware. It isn't designed to capture keystrokes. It is designed to help your team improve performance and for management to understand what they are doing and help them improve. If you want to micromanage your team, then don't use this.

In my business it's essential to track my time, I have to keep my clients and my employees happy, and my employees need to be paid on time. Backlsh is the software that I use to track my time. I can see how long I spend on projects and bill my clients for all of my time. I can use this software to track my employees' hours and make sure I stay on budget. There are so many benefits to this software, if you need to track time, this is the tool for you.

Cons
ActivTrak
  • Alerts for when someone is not working during scheduled hours (although this may already exist and we don't utilize it as I know the alarm feature is pretty comprehensive)
  • Because of our IT configurations, a lot of weird "groups" show up on the dashboard which looks a bit confusing
  • Not having to create a group for 1 employee to see their own data, just allow each user to see their own data once their access account is created

We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

Support Rating
ActivTrak
Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

There should be a way to automatically implement the system without giving users the opportunity to accept or deny the program on their computers.

Alternatives Considered
ActivTrak
We selected ActivTrak for the features we were looking for. One of the main reasons was the deployment for Chromebook's and of course the price. During our demo held with each party, we were impressed with presentation from ActivTrak. One thing we would've liked is for ActivTrak to also be available for deployment to Android phones.

Return on Investment
ActivTrak
  • Defensive capabilities immediately avoided data exfiltration from an outgoing employee.
  • Trends for underperforming or underdeveloping users can be spotted, analyzed by managers, and used within their overall development management to help staff reach their best potential.
  • Costing for targeted use is relatively low and therefore a "no brainer."
