Pros: Capturing actual visited websites for any browsers and all applications used in the computer with their durations which gives ability to measure the work time easily whether it is productive or not. It gives me a point called BQ as daily weekly monthly and yearly which is the only thing I need.

Beside those informations, it is capturing work start time, work end time, total working time network usage and screenshots for an employee, and also agent application is so tiny smaller than 1 mb easy to install and configurable from the web application.

Cons: Report section should be improved.

Work calendar for employees should be much easier to use. Right now it is a bit hard to add a new vacation.

Overall: Right now I am able to measure productivity for our employees and we are giving salaries based on their productivity.

Thanks to berqun, my team was able to develop a commercial software product in a few months.

Pros: I was amazed how developers managed their time wisely. I worked with five developers using berqun. The off time was minimized, I was able monitor how productive they use their time, what did they do, when and who, etc...

Cons: When I was using the product, there was no Mac version available. I hope to use the product from my Mac without the use of programs like parallel desktop...

Overall: Thanks to berqun, I feel developers are never wasting their valuable time. The contract I had with the development team was a time and material contract, so the most important benefit of using berqun was the fact that, it have me a piece of mind regarding developers never charged me for nothing.

Pros: Due to my job which required me to work outside of the office most of the time I was never able to track the situation in our office and keep track of my employees. After using berqun i am now able to see which employee has spent how much time on each project without even being in the office. In only 5 minutes using the daily report, i am able to see the efficiency of my employees.

Also, powerful reports helped me to measure my employee's productivity

Cons: The only time consuming thing at the beginning is that you have to group activities as productive and distractive. Maybe it would be better if there was a way for an automatic grouping.

Overall: My office's productivity significantly increased after we started to use this application. It also gives me the flexibility to track my employee's from everywhere which is a must for me.

On the other hand, my employer has given up to visit non work related sites and applications during the working hours.

Pros: Berqun reportd helped a lot to me to track the work efficiency and work load of certain employees.

It also helpful to build a balance to the team based on their availability by its calendar and to track them with its office tv.

Overall: Increased team efficiency

Reoorts are well detailed and good

Absent reports are great which tells me who is unavailable.

Pros: Simple to use, just register and download 1MB client agent on each computer to track. Gives employees freedom to stop for privacy for 10 minutes, kicks back in automatically. Employees manage their own time, they can wipe out logged time if they think it is personal, however deleted logged time shows up as unproductive. Not a spying tool, but a productivity tool.

Cons: Discovered very late! Works only in windows terminals. Does not work on apple mac computers.

Does not come with customizable reports.

Great product, and definitely worth more then the pesky
