For a team of remote working, this does identify different working methods and trends, especially when able to compare multiple users in a similar role it becomes extremely powerful to see where users can enhance performance and focus time/less time. This would be very difficult to establish even if the users are on-site with the manager. For more micro-management or specific scenarios, whereas, for a business, you need a close eye applying this as it is an extremely reliable and detailed tool that is such a good value for money.

Hubstaff
is a great tool for businesses and I would recommend it to all businesses that
are exclusively managing remote workers. Hubstaff is one of the best choices
for such businesses as it is equipped with all pivotal features that will help
you in giving exact direction to your business. Moreover, it offers spot-on
technical support as well which is a great thing. It is one of the best
suitable tools for every company regardless of its size and equally proves helpful
for freelancers as well.

  • It has all the features that need to have while managing the project like screen capturing, sending invoices, create and view reports, pay and quick insights.
  • It also gives me the reports of my team effectiveness.
  • It tracks all the project progress along with team effectiveness and productivity at the workplace, gives me all the insights into team performance, and also helps me to track team productivity easily.
  • Another great feature that Hubstaff has which is its integration module.

Cons

ActivTrak

  • It would be nice to have the ability to print the Live Productivity Report page.
  • If programs and websites could be classified based on an individual, it would be helpful. For example, we have an employee who works on her personal finances all day in addition to completing her online college classes. For these, she uses Excel and Word. While those two applications are classified as productive, in her instance, they are unproductive, so reports aren't accurate.

  • While setting up automatic payroll capabilities I have to pass through difficult steps.
  • If I talk about its customer support it is very much inspiring and effective too.
  • Difficulty in integration is a serious issue I think that needs to be noticed. Sometimes dragging and dropping features is found to be a bit difficult.
  • There should be an option for live chatting.

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

Some reports are a little slow to load based on the size of record sets returned.

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.

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

IT was as easy as pushing the agent out to the machines that needed to be tracked.

Alternatives Considered

ActivTrak

ActivTrak is the first product I evaluated, and based on that evaluation, I chose it. I didn't feel the need to evaluate other products because it does exactly what I needed it to do, so I didn't feel the need to explore other options. Functionality and price point were both what I needed. Why go further?

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

Return on Investment

ActivTrak

  • We have had clients demonstrate that across the board, employees were more productive when working from home
  • Working from home is an important perk for employees
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by reducing rent and utility costs
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring the best person for the job, even if they are out of your geographic region
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring people in different time zones to work different times of day
  • Work from home employment allows companies to save costs by hiring employees in areas where average pay is less than may exist in the employer's region, such as hiring a rural employee when the business is based in a big city
