ActivTrak

Perfect for keeping track of remote employees, and it isn't detectable. Therefore, employees will act naturally.Also makes note of downtime as well, another plus.Being in a smaller office environment, it's not something I'd use in the office because employees are easier to keep tabs on. ActivTrak definitely has more pluses than minuses.

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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

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 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.

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 selected ActivTrak for ease of use, cost, features and privacy. There is no keylogging in ActivTrak, which can be a violation of HIPAA. Our clients appreciate that ActivTrak tracks employee behavior without outright spying on employees.
Jonathan Sheldon | TrustRadius Reviewer

Visier

License cost and features Visier People offers is better than peers. Our requirement was to customize the tool as per our business requirement. We wanted to include more data points and more data sets to review analytics on different parameters. Overall we found it much competitive, [customizable] and extendable for our org.

Return on Investment

ActivTrak

  • We had to do staff reductions because of COVID. ActivTrak helped us identify employees that either need to be laid or or reassigned [due] to inactivity.
  • We have caught users surfing porn at work and corrected them before it turned into a sexual harassment lawsuit.
  • We have caught data theft before it became a large issue and prevented further theft.
Michael Wright | TrustRadius Reviewer

Visier

  • We have had quite a big impact; from the first quarter onward the change was exceptionally noticeable.
  • We solved all reporting errors in real time for our employees. We were also able to improve HR training to avoid any misunderstandings due to updates not being processed in time.
  • Learning time was reduced by 65% and satisfaction increased by 78%.
