DeskTrack activity time tracking software is considered the perfect solution to monitor and have track of employee per-day activity. One of our use cases describes the continuous struggle of our own company with a lack of visibility into productivity, delay in deadlines, and burnout risk for dispersed teams.
There were times when the manager asked about the work progress and status of their employee activities, but they only got the info of employees about being in the meeting most of the time. Even after so many struggles and efforts, the manager was unable to find out the reason for delayed deadlines and low productivity. And to overcome these situations, we created "DeskTrack" - activity time tracking software that helped us analyze the data by providing detailed insights on the team's working pattern & time utilization and identified working & idle hours on the activities performed.
Activity tracking is not just about monitoring and tracking the employee's system but also helping the company to identify top performers who are bringing more profitable outcomes and those who are struggling or performing any suspicious acts. This use case is of an employee working with our firm on a part-time job. In the beginning, we were getting better results and satisfactory performance from him, and because of the workload and new projects, we took no notice of his daily operations.
And one day, when we checked on his working pattern and performance through DeskTrack, we got to know that many times, he was busy doing work on his personal projects and was performing some suspicious activity with our confidential data. Therefore, with the help of DeskTrack, we witnessed a crime that was illegal and unethical towards the company's law.
Activity time tracking is not just about self-assessment for employees or improving employee productivity, but it helps managers more to have track of employee work pattern, performance, and progress. Therefore, this case will tell you about the issue we have faced with one of our developers working on a suitable designation in our company. The employee was working on his system for the whole day and was productive, but we were not getting any output from him as he was unable to submit the work on time.
One day the manager scheduled a meeting to get to know about the whole situation, and the employee confessed that he was working for the whole day but on projects which were irrelevant to the company. So, at that moment, we thought about implementing an application and URL tracking feature in our DeskTrack employee monitoring software. The app/URL tracking feature provides complete information on searched and opened applications and websites with clear insights into the time spent on each.
Employees are known to be the most important asset for a company, and when the measurement of how efficient an organization is in using the assets gets low, that shows the actual problem of less productivity and employee engagement toward driving efforts to achieve the targets. Thus, this use case is of employees working from home in our organization who claimed to be in meetings. So, whenever we asked them to submit their work report with proof of work done throughout the day, the answer always came - that they were busy in meetings.
By analyzing their whole day activities and meeting schedules with DeskTrack, we got to know the actual gap that there were no meetings scheduled or planned. Therefore, employees were just wasting their productive time by being away from their system and doing nothing. DeskTrack employee productivity monitoring software provided clear insights into every individual, with their work report of productive, unproductive, and idle time.
Do your employees submit their work on time? Or are they working properly but not reaching the deadlines on time? One of our use cases may demonstrate the same issue, which is generally faced by every organization while reviewing employee work performance and progress. So, one of our employees was working with full enthusiasm and engagement without wasting a bit of his productive time to achieve the target as per the allotted task. But he was unable to meet the deadlines on time and was not bringing any good output as compared to his efforts.
Therefore, after analyzing the entire work report of the employee, we got the reasons for the gaps and struggles he was facing while working and not reaching the deadlines on time.
When talking about activity time tracking, we usually think of it from the viewpoint of employees and teams, but how do administrators get to know about their employees being productive and engaged in their work? This use case tells you about one of our clients who was working out of India, and the team is operating within the country. Therefore, they were working in a cross-shift routine and reported positively every time they asked about the work progress. But in reality, no one is working as per their roles and responsibilities, which was leading to delays in meeting deadlines on time.
One day the owner asked their most reliable employee about the work habits of team members, and they got to know about the actual situation of why they were at a loss in achieving their targets on time. They were experiencing huge gaps among the team and working patterns because employees wasted a lot of time unproductively and by being idle.
After the whole, to generate the complete data of the work performance of employees on a daily basis, the company implemented the DeskTrack activity tracking tool in stealth mode, which provided them with a clear picture of employee work done throughout the day with a screenshot report of the user system.
