What is employee monitoring?
Monitoring work time
This is the most simple and popular way of monitoring employees in the workplace. It refers to keeping track of everyone’s attendance, time spent at work, and productivity.
Computer usage tracking
Such a feature will not only allow you to monitor your team members' attendance but also give you an insight into their working habits during the workday.
Advanced employee monitoring
From auto screenshots to custom reports and document title tracking, these features come in handy if you need to monitor your team’s performance more thoroughly.
Keep an eye on remote employees using productivity monitoring software
If you oversee remote employees, it’s quite likely that you have found it difficult at times to keep track of what exactly they are doing during their work hours. Employee monitoring software can help – it will allow you to see a detailed report of your contract workers' working day, divided into productive and unproductive time. That way, you won’t have to keep guessing what your remote team is up to.

Note: don't cross the line!
Employee monitoring is a proven way to improve employee productivity. That said, make sure you don't go too far and invade employee privacy. All the data you collect and review through hidden computer monitoring must be related to their work performance only.
Here's what managers and CEOs using DeskTime say about it:
Kaspars MilbergsCTO at On The Map Marketing
I'd recommend DeskTime for companies with remote employees or home-office days - time tracking allows people who work remotely feel certain that their work, effort, and dedication won't stay unnoticed.
Julia GiffordCEO at Truesix Co
If you're working as a freelancer, a writer, a blogger, or you're simply billing by the hour, DeskTime is the right kind of time tracking tool for you.
Anders GernerOwner at SoMoWeb Development
When consulting multiple clients, it can be hard to track how much time you spend on it. With Desktime, I have a lot more precise information about when and which program I used, which gives me a clear view. My time registrations have highly improved with Desktime and I feel safe, knowing all my working time on my MacBook is tracked in Desktime.
Zelma Diana VidinaManaging Director at AD VERBUM
DeskTime has helped us find new ways to automate our workflows to free up time for important things like strengthening relationships with our customers.
Tudor BradBetter QA
From our perspective, Better QA wants to be a company where people can work from anywhere they want, as long as they do their job. After researching the market for multiple products, DeskTime fits like a glove, at least for us since it does just that. I can easily say that employees are being more productive when working 6 hours a day compared with the regular 9 AM to 5 PM hour job.
Przemek KoszkaDirector of Technology at Diversity travel
The data DeskTime provides helps us understand and improve our processes, which ultimately benefits our teams and our customers, and helps us maintain our 98% client retention rate.
Toms PandersCEO at Setupad
With DeskTime I am able to see how productive my employees are and how much work time they spend on work-related applications - that’s something many other time tracking software don't have.
Rizah KabasiFounder & CEO at SmartLab
I was thinking about if there is a solution which can gather me all needed data about team productivity, and at the same time provide more flexible working hours to all team members. I found it possible with DeskTime task and time management system. It is easy to control everything and I don't need to worry about it working hours anymore.
Laurentiu CiovicaCEO at Omeron Technologies
We believe in flexibility, responsibility and productivity. Flexible schedules and working places play a great role in the productivity and happiness of our colleagues. Desktime offers the right support to keep all three beliefs in a perfect harmony.
Cate WheatleyCustomer Relations Manager at ConnexCS
As all of our staff work remotely, having DeskTime to monitor their activities has proved to be an invaluable tool in ensuring that people are doing what they are supposed to. I love the fact that I don't have to worry about keeping track of my hours as Desktime does it all for me. I also enjoy the articles written by the contributors.
