Pros: Ease of use. so simple nothing is hidden behind sub menus or complicated setup walls. The interface is is clean and crisp giving only the info you are after while being easily leading to other relevant options

Cons: Honestly i keep adding to much reporting and getting a lot of email. just dont be like me, you dont need to know everything

Overall: Straight up monitoring and a solid gage of what is going on within the monitored team members.

Not too bad for free

Pros: Being able to see screen shots from my employees' workstations to monitor what they are doing. I was able stop some online shopping during work hours.

Cons: The software does not record keyboarding so there is no way to get definitive proof that an employee is doing anything wrong or against company policy.

Overall: Able to monitor most of what our employees are doing to make sure they are working as well as not doing anything illegal or against company policy.

My experience has been great, currently I haven't found another product like Activtrak

Pros: The fact that we can manage productivity through this platform and also the fact that you are able to pull reporting per user

Cons: Because I'm in South Africa, its quite pricey and would possibly suggest a month to month option at a better rate.

The paid service is worth every penny, and the free trial saved me thousands of dollars

Pros: Easy of installation and use, cloud hosting, and browser access from anywhere in the planet. The price is also reasonable. The free trial saved us thousands of dollars in wasted wages. We suspected that one young law clerk was squandering our time and resources because of his low productivity. Three hours after we started monitoring his workstation (with the free trial) we fired him on the spot. We then implemented ActivTrak firm-wide (with prior announcement) and everyone is being honest on their workstations. Trust but verify.

Cons: I wish we could adjust the speed of the screenshot "slide show". It's painfully slow right now. Also, allow us to name the rules. Some of the rules can get convoluted, and two months later we forget what they're supposed to do. Other than those nitpicks, I think this software is brilliant.

Overall: Increased employee productivity and decreased employee turnover. Our employees know we monitor their workstations, so they behave and don't misuse our IT resources. That's one less reason to fire them.

Love This!!
