Monitoring employee activity – a sneak peak
Oftentimes it becomes a necessity to track the activities of your employees for the sake of security. And if you have a large organization, it is not just possible to do manually.
Here, manually we mean that you have IT personnel and you employ him to check computers and activities of each and every employee of your company one by one. It is definitely not a practical solution.
Why? First of all, you will not be able to track the activities of your employees in real time and by the time, your IT personnel is monitoring a system of one employee, it is quite likely that someone else in some other department may be committing few errors that he shouldn’t be doing.
So, manual screening of employee activities will not give you the provision to watch your employee activities in real time.
In order to overcome these drawbacks, these days you will come across many employees activity monitoring software that can be the perfect solution to this problem.
Role of an employee monitoring software
The software that you install for employee activity monitoring will allow you to view the activities through a single computer that is connected to other computers through a well developed and well connected network.
In this way you will be able to keep a tab on each and every employee and their activities on their computer.
How will the employee activity monitoring software help you?
You can track the following activities of your employees. They include the following –
1. Desktop activities
2. Monitoring keystrokes
3. Track application logs
4. What documents were opened and how were they used
5. What websites did your employee visit
6. How long were they in that particular website
7. Did they shop online
8. Emails that were received as well as sent
9. The email Ids where they were sent or received from
10. Every file operation can be viewed. For instance, if your employee has opened a file that should not have been, you can track the activities and operations that were performed on the file. You will find out whether or not your employee deleted, renamed, added, or modified information in the file or changed its attributes like making it Read Only or Archived it.
11. Also possible to track are screenshots that have been taken from a particular terminal and many other similar activities performed by your employees.
Trial versions and paid versions of the software
Once you have decided to install employee activity monitoring software, next step is to find a reliable service provider who will offer you the software. Initially, you will be allowed to try out the demo version or install the trial version for a limited time period. The time limit usually differs from one service provider to another and so does the cost, if you decide to get one installed for your regular work.
If you find that it is reliable and can be trusted, you can contact the vendor and enter into a contract and place order for the software applications you require.
