ActivTrak

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.

Visier

Visier People is well-suited for organizations that require the ability to record thorough information on analytics of the company, and to have the change of measuring training's productivity impact. The software isn't well-suited for those who tend to feature a lot of models into the software as the platform doesn't record/support most models, so some data isn't able to be recorded.

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.

Visier

  • The database is very complete and detailed, thus being able to enhance a deep analysis of each user.
  • The Visier dashboard is extremely attractive and friendly, helping staff understand every detail of the analyzes conducted on the company's workforce.
  • Despite not being a great and complete solution to work with HR within this platform, however, data can be shared to exchange information between the head of each department of the company and HR staff and to speed up the analysis process and determine what to do with a low-performing employee.
  • It excellently determines the productivity of each employee and also determines risk by monitoring patterns and behavior.

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.

Visier

  • Visier is a people analytics tool, so all data points are tied to employees. It can be difficult to analyze data points that aren't tied to employees (e.g., certain job data) since the data is driven by people metrics.
  • Visier releases updates quarterly. While this cadence does provide room for updates and enhances to be implemented in the tool throughout the year, other software providers operate on a more continuous update schedule.

    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.

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

    Visier can move as quickly or as slowly as the client needs. The topic-by-topic approach separates the project in clear phases and allows for focus on specific data. Depending on the size of the implementation team, implementation could move more rapidly if the subject matter experts are responsible for the individual topic data sets.

    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.

    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."

    Visier

    • The report designer is positive because it allows users to collect and design data for presentations.
    • Integration is negative because the data often lags for days and is not real-time as a result of its coordination with other software.
    • The pre-built content is positive because the reporting is easy and convenient for senior management and client presentations.
    • The benchmarking feature is positive because it has the capability to evaluate or monitor data progress.
