    ActivTrak is well suited to for the reasons that we wanted a monitoring software solution implemented. It allows us to manage the performance of our overseas offices and those who are working from home, where they do not have the direct management from their Line Manager. The biggest issue for us is, as we have numerous offices in different countries, having to constantly change the time zone to each one before running the reports is time consuming and an annoyance if you forget to change it, as you then have to rerun the report.

    Harvest salt or immediate need for a replacement time tracking system that had become out of financial reach. It was a simple solution that everyone in our organization picked up really quickly. For myself at the administrative level, I have had no trouble adding clients, adjusting tasks, migrating tasks and running reports. I am unsure as to the best practices at this time for a particular clients that have very specific price rate associated to very specific roles, it will still list the roles that we do not want in the drop-down menu and I would really like to eliminate that. I do not want room for error or for any particular user to pick the wrong task. It still lists them as non-billable but there are no non-billable hours associated to that client, so we don’t need those at all on the drop down.

    Pros

    ActivTrak

    • Detailed listings of actions at times. done by the second in many cases, very useful.
    • the productive/unproductive listings allow managers at a glance to see their employees use of time
    • Snapshots ( when properly utilized) are very helpful in troubleshooting, strange, occurrences, as well as they're used by Human resources.
    • The IT help desk is very efficient. log in to your portal, bottom right, and in minutes your talking to someone.

    Harvest

    • Offers several options on using the tool, for example, you can use the app on your phone, the app for desktop, or simply have the website open.
    • The timer integrates with other platforms. For example, our team uses Asana as our project management tool. Now, in real-time, I can know which projects my team is working on and whether we're implementing good time management strategies to meet our goals.
    • The summary break downs are wonderful! You can view an individual's hours as well as project hours. There are even notifications you could receive when your team is getting close to reaching the allotted time for a client's project.

    Cons

    ActivTrak

    • Rollout through Group Policy could be a little smoother.
    • Alarms for when an employee has been inactive for a specified amount of time.
    • Alert for computers that no longer are active.
    • More streamlined integration with identifying computers and users.
    • More specific breakdowns of classifications, ie - the ability to say Facebook for business is Productive, but scrolling feeds and watching videos is unproductive.
    • Classifications to more easily auto-classify e-commerce hubs and portals.

    Harvest

    • Sometimes it can be difficult to find the item that you're looking for, as there are tabs for time, projects, team, reports etc. and it's not always clear where the item you're looking for will be housed.
    • It would be nice if things could be broken out more clearly by department, as sometimes the entire organization will be added to a new project when really only a couple of people should have.

      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.

      ActivTrak is a great product that just keeps growing. Having used it for quite some time, we have been able to see ActivTrak grow and evolve as a product. The ActivTrak webinars are also helpful to get to know and learn the product. ActivTrak really just works with little effort needed after the initial installation

      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.

      I have not actually had any customer support issues as the product just works for me and I have not needed it. So using that as the basis of making my assessment on support I would reckon the team are pretty responsive and attentive to customer needs. I have only used the solution on Chrome and Android so have no idea what the experience is like on other browsers or phone operating systems.

      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 were using Currentware and Webspy from Vantage. Neither product could track daily usage in a detailed way ActivTrak can. Also, web spy could only track in-house users whereas ActivTrak can track work from home users. Using Active Trak we were about to combine the features of both software packages into one.

      Harvest

      Harvest is significantly better than Jira. I think Jira's is not originally intended to be used as a time logging/management system, but we had been previously using it as that. It was much clunkier, and many employees had a difficult time using it as a user interface goes. Harvest is much more user friendly and has simplified the daily time-logging process for everyone in our office

      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."

      Harvest

      • Harvest has improved our payment schedules. Since we switched, we get paid for projects much sooner.
      • Harvest has saved us a ton of time with payroll. We are able to track our users time and pay them appropriately based on their billable hours.
      • Harvest is becoming a lifesaver around tax time. The reporting features have allowed us to pull reports for our tax accountant.
