Powerful software does not necessarily mean that you get the most out of it. It must serve your cases and goals of organizational commitment. It is about flexibility and regulation. Familiarize yourself with key use cases and choose a solution that can be configured to meet the needs of your organization. The initiative to monitor the activities of your employees and users can be a very powerful tool for your company to ensure compliance, reduce risks, identify malicious ones, test, improve the productivity of users and teams and streamline processes.
Applications of employee monitoring
According to recent studies, 64% of employees use day-to-day jobs,and 85% of employees use their e-mail. With the correct implementation of employee monitoring software, these non-productive cycles can get reduced. For example:
- Use Workforce productivity tools to track active time versus idle time, late shifts, long breaks, and more.
- Use intelligent content-based rules to find clues about customer dissatisfaction to provide better service automatically.
- Classify productive/non-productive applications/sites and determine if employees get overloaded with applications.
- Define label rules to limit unproductive behavior.
- Track the time, performance, and cost of each project with external contractors and employees, reducing manual billing and monitoring.
Detection of internal threats
Internal threats are another important use case for implementing an employee monitoring solution. According to recent stats, 52% of companies believe that employees are the weakest link in IT security. Harmful or accidental threats; risk of intellectual property, trade secrets and loss of confidential data; misuse of IT systems by privileged users; infection of viruses, malware,and ransomware by those affected; external suppliers stealing their trade secrets: All are true and legitimate business concerns.

How do you decide what to do or what not to do when it comes to supervising employees? In particular, if you are a global company or a small company with remote workers, how do you deal with different countries? It’s not a size for everyone. It is where the need for a flexible employee monitoring solution comes into play. It has to be a Swiss Army knife.
