Enforce Computer Use Policies

Get Alerts of Policy Violations

An employee computer use policy helps ensure that your team members are aware of their responsibilities, but it’s not enough.

To make your policies truly effective you need employee computer use monitoring software to detect unwanted computer activity.

BrowseReporter’s automated computer activity alerts make it the best employee monitoring software for enforcing company policies. These alerts notify you when employees are visiting high-risk, inappropriate, or unproductive websites.

    Enforce Policies Consistently

    Inconsistent workplace policy enforcement is a surefire way to frustrate your employees.

    Employee computer use monitoring software alerts you of policy violations so you can ensure that enforcement against inappropriate computer activity is consistent and fair.

      Maintain Evidence of Misuse

      Employee monitoring software bolsters your policy enforcement by providing you with auditable records of employee computer activity.

      BrowseReporter’s database is protected against tampering by your end-users; evidence of employee computer activity and lost productivity remains intact even when they use private browsing modes or clear their internet history.

      Manage Employee Productivity

      Coach Underperforming Employees

      While occasional web surfing might be okay so long as employees are getting their work done, workplace internet abuse can be a serious detriment to employee productivity.

      Using employee productivity tracking software provides employees, managers, and HR with a benchmark for Employee Performance Improvement Plans (PIP).

      Empower Self-Management

      The use of employee computer monitoring software does not have to be an exclusively top-down approach. With BrowseReporter you can give your employees on-demand access to their productivity and computer activity data.

      This approach to employee monitoring will foster happier, more creative, and more productive teams by empowering them to self-manage their productivity.

      Optimize Work Processes

      Are deadlines being missed because your employees are being interrupted by meetings, becoming sidetracked by other tasks, or because they’re consistently blocked by other departments?

      The productivity insights provided by employee computer monitoring software allows you to identify inefficiencies so you can optimize work processes.

      Improve Visibility of Remote Workers

      Compare Productivity of Remote & In-Office Employees

      Without reduced visibility into workflows, how can you be certain that your employees are as productive working from home as they are in the office?

      Using BrowseReporter’s productivity by location reports you can identify employee productivity trends no matter where they work. Analyze employee productivity trends to see where they thrive and verify attendance.

      Praise High Performing Employees & Identify Shirkers

      Many leaders worry that their employees will be distracted, or worse – actively disengaged – while they work from home.

      Remote employee monitoring software is a valuable tool for identifying poor performers, improving visibility into employee productivity, and providing high-performing employees an opportunity to demonstrate their efforts.

      Provide Opportunities for Flexible Employee Schedules

      How do you keep a pulse on the activity levels of your remote workforce when everyone is so disconnected from each other?

      Remote employee monitoring software provides you with a clear picture of when employees are working on their computers so you can rest assured that they are engaged no matter how they like to schedule their time.

      Find Bandwidth Hogs On Your Network

      Reduce Operational Costs

      Are bandwidth upgrades necessary, or is an employee’s misuse of the internet what’s causing bottlenecks?

      With BrowseReporter’s bandwidth monitoring reports you can identify which employees are consuming excessive amounts of bandwidth.

      Find out if your organization is making optimal use of its current bandwidth before investing in expensive networking upgrades.

      Improve Network Performance

      Monitoring bandwidth usage allows you to identify  productivity-draining bandwidth hogs in your network.

      Once high-bandwidth websites are found you can find out which ones need to be blocked or restricted and which ones your employees truly need.

      Blocking unproductive high-bandwidth websites will greatly reduce unnecessary strain on your network’s available bandwidth.

      Discover Network Anomalies

      Computers with unexpected spikes in bandwidth usage need to be investigated.

      Devices with anomalously high bandwidth consumption could be infected with malware or being misused for undesirable activities.

      Monitoring bandwidth usage provides a baseline performance metric that you can use to detect outliers in network traffic.

      Protect Your Business From Liability Risks

      Detect Software Piracy

      Employers have a responsibility to prevent the use of unlicensed software in their organization.

      Employee application monitoring software shows you what software is being used on work computers, providing an early warning of piracy in the workplace.

      Stop Workplace Harassment

      Allowing employees to access pornographic, hateful, or crude websites at work is a serious liability risk.

      Don’t risk creating a hostile work environment. Restrict and monitor employee computer activity to ensure that  company resources are being used appropriately.

      Meet Compliance Requirements

      Controlling internet use is an essential part of securing your network against web-based threats.

      Without critical security controls in place an employee can infect your network with malware or transfer sensitive data to unauthorized file storage sites.
