The Benefits of Tracking Your Employee’s Usage of Software

Cast Light on Shadow IT

Shadow IT – also known as Stealth IT, Client IT, or Fake IT – is any system, solution, or software that’s used by the employees of an organization without the knowledge and approval of the corporate IT department. 

BrowseReporter’s software usage reports lets you monitor software license usage based on devices, users, and workgroups such as organizational units (OUs) in Active Directory. It bolsters your software asset management program by showing you all of the programs that are currently being used by your organization, including those that have not been officially adopted. 

With a clear picture of the software being used in your organization you will know which high-risk applications to block and what capabilities your workforce needs to be provided with.

Avoid Wasting Money on Unused Software

App/SaaS usage monitoring software is essential to ensure the solutions you invest in are still relevant and useful to your employees.

Make data-informed software procurement decisions with the help of genuine insights into the application usage of your employees. Track software license usage to determine whether you need to purchase new licenses for your current solutions or decommission underutilized software to reduce unnecessary costs.

BrowseReporter’s computer activity reports demonstrate how often software solutions are being used, how long they are being used for, and which employees are genuinely using them. 

Internet usage reports allow you to identify how often online subscription-based accounts are being accessed so you can more effectively determine SaaS utilization levels in your organization.

Track Software Adoption Rates

When new tools are implemented it takes time for employees to develop the proficiency needed to get the most out of them. If a newly introduced tool is underutilized it may indicate that further training is required.

An organization can use BrowseReporter’s software usage report to discover which employees aren’t using a given piece of software due to insufficient knowledge and assign additional training. 

Improve Employee Productivity

Throughout the day employees may be tempted to get distracted by computer games, social media, and other unproductive activities during working hours.

 While a certain level of non-work computer usage can serve as a much needed mental break, it can easily become excessive so it’s worth implementing computer usage monitoring tools to keep an eye on productivity.

Managers can use employee tracking software to monitor work from home employees to understand if performance concerns are the result of repeat visits to distractions or if there are other concerns that need to be investigated.

Reduce Risk of Piracy in the Workplace

A failed software compliance audit can cost your organization as much as $150,000 in fines per violationYour corporate risk management strategy needs to include preventative measures against piracy in the workplace. 

Protect your business against failed compliance audits by tracking software license usage with BrowseReporter. Detect the usage of pirated or improperly licensed software to ensure that your organization is compliant with software license allowances.
