Pros: Quick View Access to see the entire staff and team, this allows me to insure the staff is working, not being distracted by the continual internet drum.

Cons: I had some trouble on the install but was able to figure it out, would love to have a phone to call but I couldn't reach a real person.

Overall: The continual pull and distractions that employees have to face is extremely difficult, this helps keep everyone focused.

Pros: The view history as a video is a great tool. Being able to see what is going on live and to be able to customize how often a screenshot is saved.

Cons: It does not allow for running reports. Also looking at a web address I cannot always tell if it is personal or business and have to revert to looking at each individual screenshot. I have demoed other software and although this one is easier to navigate others gave report options.

Overall: We have been able to catch staff using their energy in other ways other than focusing on work. I have also used it recapture information we thought we lost and found it on a screenshot, this has saved us more than once.

This software is the definition of Fire and Forget!

Pros: It's easy to setup and deploy remotely with minimal effort. Once it's installed you can pull reports for any time period with ease.l The latest version is excellent as no intervention is required and the database updates with activity are been done in the background.

Cons: In some cases, if you have to replace a workstation for technical problems the transition from one monitored workstation to another is not seamless and It can cause breaks in the continuity of the monitoring reports. So far there is not a clear way to transfer the relationship between the old and new workstation that I can see.

Overall: You can Track the use and abuse of resources in your organization and take corrective actions accordingly.

A critical feature is the capacity to perform live monitoring on workstations. It save us from an ongoing data theft in one department.

Pros: Value for Money, it served its purpose for what we wanted to use it for. Without it we could not monitor in this manner.

Cons: Slightly difficult to operate/pin point what you need - time consuming. Not easy to find a discretion.

Pros: Monitor computers without bothering the users.
I think it is bad on your side to force me to write more than what is want.

Cons: not backward comparability with agents, it stops me from doing updates, we have about 10 computers doing the monitoring, by deploying update we have to do all of them at the same time.

Pros: It's a great software to monitor employees activity in the office computers. Before this software employees hide important information about the business activity.

Cons: It's easy to install, it's easy to use, it's all in one place, the search is great ... all that's needed for such software is there ! Just keep doing a great job !

Pros: Very simple to use and deploy. Total privacy can be maintained. The cost of internal security breaches is increasing at 30% every year due to larger volumes and also due to more digitisation in India. It is impossible to review every node without automation. This also increases "transparency" in critical departments like public procurement , public services , healthcare records . The emphasis on "confidentiality " of public data can be ensured by using Softactivity.

Cons: Need to get this on a "Platform" with more and more "modules" so that clients can have a choice while deploying the same . This has to be both horizontally(i.e. with more number of users and even in geograhically diverse locations but managed centrally) and vertically(with more features which can be added to the main basic software).

Overall: Helps my clients with regulatory and mandatory compliances

Pros: The variety of screen types is very beneficial; monitor, keystrokes, email, internet, etc. It truly is stealth. Staff have been told the monitoring exists, however is has obviously not been detected when fully in use.

Cons: The email does not work as well as I would like with Outlook - I can only see if there is something currently active and not activity that exists at the time. The ability to copy and save files could be easier. I would like to have more settings and options.

Overall: It is easy to keep a watchful eye on activity that may need improvement as well as that which may cause harm to the company. HIPAA compliance and computer security is paramount to a Medical Practice and this softwear fits the bill while still being silent.

Pros: It works well to track employee workstations. It stores logs for later review. It captures statistics and screenshots.

Cons: The records are only viewable by date, not by time. If you want to review screenshots, you have to scroll through every single one for the day, then zoom in really close to see the clock, in order to tell what time it was. There is no way to filter by time, just by date.

It sometimes does not save the records for some unknown reason. 90% of the time it works fine. Good value for the money for a small business.

Overall: monitor employee productivity

Pros: The insight into user history makes it a valuable tool for my school. It's a valuable tool to make user's accountable for their use on the computer.

Cons: As we expanded to over 500 computers the server had a hard time kepping up. The amount of time it takes to download the data took a bit of time to get on to server.

Overall: Seeing what user's do.

Used the software for several years, while it usually performs pretty well, there are some issues.

Pros: Pro is being able to turn on/off the monitoring notification. Sending notifications/popups to users. Having both the screen view as well as keystrokes views are incredibly helpful.

Cons: Users frequently disconnect, and the only solution is to uninstall and reinstall the AmAgent software. Makes it difficult to monitor long term, and interrupts both my day and the users by having to do the reinstall.
If you're looking at the keystrokes view while a user is actively typing, the screen will continue to jump down to the bottom of the page as the keystrokes are updated. Makes it incredibly difficult to go through the history during the day or if someone is actively working at their station.
Often with major software updates, we have to uninstall and reinstall the AmAgent software on all machines.
Difficult to maintain connectivity with multiple admins running the monitor at the same time. Some admins will show staff connected, while same staff shows as disconnected on another admin's monitor.
Anytime I have had to interact with customer support it has been a primarily canned response, and I had to push to escalate to get anyone on the phone with our IT person.

Cons: Folder can get filled up quickly with screenshots from user activity. A very active monitored user would generate thousands of screenshots.

Overall: Was able perform monitoring tacks undetected.

Pros: Our company operates offices in multiple countries and we required a way to make sure that our users were working on the task. This application is great for keeping an eye on your easily distracted users and to better understand what your users are working on. More than once it has saved us days in lost time when we realized that a task was misunderstood.

Cons: Some conflicts on some systems cause the application to crash. Updating works, but only mostly requiring some manual intervention.

Pros: Easy to use, it just always works. We're able to monitor machines and the user activity on them without any interruption to the user.

Cons: If I had to come up with a complaint, some notification for when an agent stops working would be nice. But it does what we need it to.

We have installed this in several clients where they need to record and review activity.

Cons: In the activity database it does not show recordings of the particular company chat program that we use. Also, there have been a couple of times that it stopped taking screenshots for no reason and the database either had to be moved or a new one created to get it working again.

I have only been using it for a few months now but it seen to most everything we need it to do.

Pros: We have been using this product for several year an find that it is a quick and detailed way to view what is happening on a particular computer. I especially love the pivot table feature in the downloaded log.

Cons: While the product is relatively easy to use, there is no real training documentation and the Help feature only seems to help if you know what you are doing. I believe that a new user to this product with no previous background to forensics would find it difficult to get started and make it work in their environment.

Overall: Quick and detailed information of what is happening on a particular computer.

It has worked exactly like we needed it to and is so easy to use. Love it!
