  • 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."

  • I have a part-time developer in IT. He was working remotely one day a week and two days in the office. With ActivTrak, I found that he was 50% less productive in the office. I changed his schedule to where he only comes to the office two days a month.
  • With the working hours report, we have been able to match clocked hours with productivity with our remote workers. Remote workers are less likely to falsify hours.
