Among the many useful features offered by Work Examiner is Work Time Tracking. It lets you determine activities that consume the time of your employees. Coupled with Work Examiner’s attendance tracking feature, it can be used as a productivity tool. Once you learn who spends the most time on websites, chats, games or other pursuits not related to work, and who spends the most time away from their computers, you can limit use of nonproductive activities and maximize your company’s efficiency.
This internet management software lets you record keystrokes, monitor instant messaging and capture screenshots in real time. Screenshots can be taken automatically, but are not taken when a computer is idle, to prevent capturing unnecessary data.
Work Examiner, like most internet management software products, is good at blocking or allowing access to any website. It can block sites by URL, content keywords or categories built into the software. You can also set the software to display an alert on an undesired site, instead of blocking it altogether. This software is ideal for monitoring employees. It helps you limit misuse of internet and office computers by your employees for their personal use.
Work Examiner provides real-time monitoring of employees’ internet and computer use. The program has both client and server-based panels. Both Work Examiner client and server panels are very simple to use and install. They do not require a great deal of technique. We had a slight delay in installing the client remotely due to system administration blocks on our computers, but Work Examiner had an option to work around it.
During installation the administrator has the option to set up several users simultaneously, either directly on the clients’ workstations or remotely through the network. Each user will be closely monitored in stealth mode. User groups can be created according to administrator preference. All user activities such as web browsing habits, website groups, time spent on each website, detailed website usage and detailed computer usage will be recorded by the application.
A demo version is available online to give you a good taste of the internet management software’s capabilities. The demo version is for 30 days and five clients.
The software can filter and prevent users from accessing certain applications and websites. You can schedule the time when they can access these sites. For example, you can limit certain entertainment websites to be accessible during lunch breaks so employees conduct personal business only on personal time.
Reporting features are designed to generate reports based on set criteria and can be customized and scheduled according to your preference. You can generate reports to reflect a single user or a group of users. This internet management software can analyze log files and proxy server files.
You can specify parameters for each report, including lists of websites, applications, users and computers depending on the report. All reports are accessed from the system console. Stored data is independent and saved on the console for future access. IP addresses and other details such as time frame, applications and others are stored for access at the administrator’s discretion.
Reports are generated automatically from within the console. The administrator does not have to be logged on to the internet to generate reports because all the data is saved locally on the console. Work Examiner can export reports in various formats. The reports produced can be displayed using graphics and charts. These visual reports will display results based on an administrator’s selected parameters and predetermined user groupings.
