WorkTime is a no-frills employee monitoring software designed to let you keep track of the productivity of your workforce. It’s available in cloud-based and on-premises versions for small and large businesses. The software isn’t bombarded with features so you won’t feel overwhelmed when using it. Call it a simple employee monitoring solution that you can quickly run at a low cost.
Overview of WorkTime
Any user might be interested in knowing how WorkTime can help its company. The main quality of this software is that it allows you to monitor productivity and boost it.
It is no brainer that productive employees add value to your business. But if your workforce is not being as productive as it is expected to be, then this could hurt your business. Using WorkTime, you can get insight into the workday of your employees and identify the productivity issues. Let’s see what these issues can be:
Spot the Unproductive Times
Unproductive time is the time spent on activities (during work hours) that are not related to work. This includes unusual breaks, chatting with colleagues too often, browsing social media, online shopping, and anything that could affect the employee’s performance.
WorkTime will tell what activities keep your employee busy other than work so that you can put them to an end.
Determine Internet Usage
Every company deserves to know how their internet service is being used during business hours. If the employees are using the company’s internet for personal activities, this means they are wasting the company’s resources. They could be using social media, playing online games, spending time on YouTube, and using the internet to perform other non-work-related internet activities.
Idle time is the time spent away from the PC. Some employees like to waste working hours remaining idle. They could be spending time on their phones, chatting with other employees, coffee breaks, and any other activity that keeps them away from their computer.
WorkTime lets you measure how much time is spent away from the PC so that you can put end to excessive idle time after logging in.
Dedicated employees are like an asset to a business. But sometimes, certain employees claim work hours exceeding the designated working hours. The only way to end this practice and ensure only correct overtimes are recorded is to use employee monitoring software.
WorkTime reports let you determine if the overtime claims of your employees are valid or not. Next time your employees ask for overtime, you will always be sure whatever extra you are paying them is justified.
Measure Poor Attendance
Late check-ins, frequent absenteeism, clocking on behalf of other colleagues – all this can cost an organization not just money but time. This could also bring down the morale of the hardworking employees. It can leave a negative impact on overall productivity.
WorkTime provides insight into the user login and logout time, employee absenteeism, or enhance your existing checkout system. This will push your employees to be punctual and make sure they are not deceiving the company.

Login and Logout
