To understand what the office workers are doing, every manager wants. Someone tries to be present at the office constantly and personally monitor the progress of work, someone sets up cameras and studies records in his spare time. And someone chooses a simpler, but no less effective method – sets up the StaffCounter – a program for monitoring staff performance. Why tracking a computer with StaffCounter is profitable and convenient?
StaffCounter agents allow you to monitor PCs based on macOS, Linux, and Windows. This is the main advantage of our product since you are not faced with the question of choosing a system. Your office can continue its work, as usual, using one or another operating system. You can start working with the free version of the staff monitoring program, and also switch to it after the end of the paid subscription.
Features free version of StaffCounter
Accounting for the beginning and end of the working day
The head and manager of a department may not always be present at the office at the beginning and at the end of the working day. This is due to the wide range of duties that he must perform. Therefore, the need to account for the beginning and end of the working day of each employee arises in any organization. StaffCounter allows you to mark the time you start working at the computer and the time it ends. This information is necessary both for analyzing the discipline of employees and for calculating wages if a person works on an hourly basis.
Accounting for visited websites and running applications
In the general journal, you can find information about what the employee worked during the day. Of course, it will be difficult to identify something not related to work from a large amount of information. But if necessary, you can always view the log of the work of an employee at any time convenient for you.
Comparative staff hours
A handy tool for managers who need a clear picture of the working time of employees. The Dashboard main page shows the work schedule of each employee in accordance with the time spent. According to him, it is immediately possible to understand who is at work since the morning, and who were late, constantly left, or simply did not come.
