Overall Satisfaction with ActivTrak

ActivTrak is used across the entire organization to address remote work (and general) productivity. We have created departmental groups with different permissions/classifications based on the departments' workflows. ActivTrak offers easy-to-understand reports coupled with screenshots to provide real-time insights into what our employees are doing during business hours.
  • MacOS integration
  • Granular permissions/triggers
  • Easy to understand dashboard
  • Intuitive reports
  • Omitting a global admin does not always work, requiring manual omission on a per machine basis.
  • Recalling screenshots could be easier.
  • Deployment in Firefox requires an extension.
  • Increase efficiency
  • Better insights into employee behaviors
  • Real-time dashboard presents up to the moment stats on what employees are doing.
  • Custom triggers allow us to gather information as our needs evolve.
ActivTrak provides in-depth activity monitoring so we can see how employees are working. We can see trends over time with certain employees and can use those insights to proactively correct undesirable behaviors before it becomes an issue. Before deploying ActivTrak, we had some network logs tied to the employees' workstations but did not have up to the minute, granular details of how our employees are working.
We saw a noticeable drop in productivity when we switched to a remote model. Some employees have better self discipline than others. ActivTrak allows us to address potential problems before they escalate. We have seen our productivity return significantly since deploying ActivTrak--while not quite as high as in office productivity, we were able to reverse a negative trend quickly thanks to ActivTrak.
ActivTrak has much better integration with MacOS than SentryPC. Since we are a Mac shop predominately, this was an important feature. On the Windows side, we may have gone with SentryPC due to better deployment options with Group Policy.
ActivTrak is well suited for remote workers and for positions that require workers to be on their computers most of the workday. We use it for proactive corrections when employee's productivity drops. ActivTrak is not well suited for shared workstations if the users do not have individual accounts on the shared workstation.
