Employee monitoring software is a means of employee monitoring, and allows company administrators to monitor and supervise all their employee computers from a central location. It is normally deployed over a business network and allows for easy centralized log viewing via one central networked PC. Sometimes, companies opt to monitor their employees using remote desktop software instead.
Employee monitoring software is used to supervise employees' performance, prevent illegal activities, avoid confidential info leakage, catch insider threats. Nowadays employee monitoring software is widely used in technology companies.
An employee monitoring program can monitor almost everything on a computer, such as keystrokes and passwords inputted, websites visited, chats in Facebook Messenger, Skype and other social chats. A piece of monitoring software can also capture screenshots of mobile activities. The administrator can view the logs through a cloud panel, or receive the logs by email.
It may be better to inform employees in advance if the administrator plans to use employee monitoring software on employees' computers. In this way, employees may behave themselves well and try not to make mistakes. In this case, employees can increase their efficiency and create more value for the company.
