What makes StaffCounter different from other time-tracking systems?

It tracks keyboard input

StaffCounter keeps a record of how much text is typed on the keyboard. This helps to determine employee performance, showing in which programs or on which sites employees are doing the most typing.
(StaffCounter records only the amount of characters typed.)

It controls Skype usage

StaffCounter records the name of chat contact and the total number of messages.

It tracks web searches

In addition to the sites that employees use most, StaffCounter records what employees have searched for on the internet. This helps to determine what employees are interested in during their working hours and what issues they are working on. You can find the list of employee searches in StaffCounter’s internet usage reports.

It tracks smartphones (Android)

Monitor corporate smartphones, keep a record of calls made and your employees’ movements around the city. See an example report here.

It automatically detects rule violations

StaffCounter can automatically identify possible violations and generate alert message on email. This frees managers from constantly standing watch over office productivity.

Violations which are shown by default:

  • Over 30% of employee time has been spent on entertainment or other unproductive sites.
  • More than 40% of the time has been spent on unknown or neutral applications and sites.
  • The StaffCounter agent is not working properly on the employee computer (perhaps it has been turned off)
  • The employee computer has been disconnected from the monitoring system
  • More than 5 hours was spend for entertainment or other unproductive sites for the week.

It’s open source
