ActivTrak is a productivity monitoring software you can use to track employees' activity. It gathers data on usage of websites and applications and gives you insights into real-time behavior of your employee. The data is represented in pie-charts and graphs. ActivTrak provides a better overview of your employees by capturing data through screenshots of employee computers. It can also increase productivity with an option to block distracting websites for selected users or groups. Moreover, you will be able to set up alarm conditions to trigger actions like sending pop-up messages to users' device, sending email notifications to account administrators, capturing screenshots, or even closing applications. ActivTrak gathers the data from the devices where you install an agent, which is invisible for employees, so they don’t know about monitoring until you tell them. It’s available for Windows, Mac, and it also provides a Chrome extension that lets you track your employees' browser activity. The software gives you access to all data on the go with the mobile app. Unfortunately, there's no option to track mobile devices.
