Likelihood to Recommend

ActivTrak

I have recommended free ActivTrak for several people wanting to keep tabs on their kids at home and professionally because [of] how well it scales [is] great. Would recommend it on an older computer or to someone with a very slow or internet connection.

OnShift

Well suited: managing schedules, filling open shifts, printing schedules, PBJ, integration with payroll software (ADP).Less appropriate: Text2HIre software, ability to change schedule format for employees to easily understand/read.

Pros

ActivTrak

  • The alarms feature is wonderful. In the past, we have had employees save company files to an external device and we had no idea. Having the ability to trigger an alarm and capture screenshots when this occurs is extremely helpful.
  • The analytics provide a good bit of insight. For example, we have an employee who wasn't getting any work done, because he was constantly evaluating software that would make his job easier. We were easily able to see what he was spending his time on by using reports as well as looking at the dashboard where you are able to view a breakdown of categories.
  • Screen capturing is extremely beneficial. Instead of trying to piece a puzzle together, you can simply view the screenshot.

OnShift

  • Scheduling - ease of creating, managing, modifying schedules.
  • PBJ (Payroll-Based Journal) - easy to enter numbers, download CVS file and upload to CMS.
  • Communicate to employees regarding open shifts, share open shifts with staff.
  • Send mass texts to employees as needed.

Cons

ActivTrak

  • Agent sometimes stops reporting for no apparent reason, causing discrepancies of data.
  • There is no information about software limitations or restrictions, we found out that the agent doesn't work on older versions of MAC OS.
  • Uninstalling agent from a machine sometimes does not cause it to stop showing as a user on the list, it just stops it from reporting data

OnShift

  • OnShift's Text2Hire software for texting current applicants is not as flexible as other platforms and too pricey for the quality of the product.
  • Downloading schedules to an Excel file or spreadsheet that is easy for employees to read and understand is an issue.

Usability

ActivTrak is a great program but it takes some getting used to while navigating all the menus and dialing down to a specific employee and sometimes the data doesn't appear like you'd hope. It can take a while to remember how to do something if you don't use it consistently. No single person manages our program so sometimes we need a refresher when accessing data after a few months but that usually applies to most applications.

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

Support is very easy. Live chat or a ticketing system. The support is helpful and kind.They are experts in their software and with the Employee Activity Tracking space; they know how to make it do what you want it to do and they'll help you do it. We've used their support sparingly. We've found that the software is powerful and feature rich; but also, has great documentation and support is there when we still are needing a nudge.

OnShift account managers consistently respond to emails in less than one business day and are able to address issues very quickly when they occur. Very responsive. This is critical considering integration with the payroll system (ADP).

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

Alternatives Considered

ActivTrak

We never used anything like this before. We would mainly just check the firewall and search by the user which is fine, but it's not [as] clear cut [nor] designed to see all mobile offices that we have in place. This software allows us to monitor everything every employee does and it is well worth the price of the product.

OnShift

SmartLinx has payroll platform which integrates nicely with scheduling platform, reducing redundant pay code entry. Analytics ties in both payroll and scheduling. However, SmartLinx is not as user-friendly or intuitive as OnShift; PBJ platform not as good as OnShift, communication with employees more difficult than with OnShift.

Return on Investment

ActivTrak

  • Positive: Employees are reminded if websites are not business related, helps keep them focused.
  • Positive: When reviews come down, it is easier to quantify their place within the firm.
  • Negative: Employees find this to be a negative move on the part of management. Sort of "Big Brother". We negate this by reminding them that its a reactive tool, not proactive.

OnShift

  • Easily filling shifts - reduced OT usage.
  • Easily communicating with employees regarding open shifts - reduce OT, better care provided to patients/residents.
  • PBJ reporting - easily performed, reports easy to read, ensure maintaining CMS 5-Star Staffing rating.
