The new CurrentWare Web Console lets you apply policies and run reports from the convenience of a web browser.
No need to install multiple CurrentWare Consoles on each manager’s computer, simply access the Web Console from a computer in your network and log in!
Note: Customers on a support and maintenance plan with perpetual licenses can upgrade to v6.0, however, the Web Console is exclusively available for customers with a CurrentWare subscription plan.
We are offering a limited-time discount to help our existing customers transition their perpetual licenses to a 6.0+ subscription plan. If you have perpetual licenses you will get an exclusive loyalty discount when you upgrade to a CurrentWare subscription plan before June 30th, 2021
Starting in CurrentWare v6.0+ your employees can access their own user activity reports on-demand. Now your employees can see exactly how they’ve spent their time on the internet and computer applications.
Note: This feature is exclusive to the web console. You will need a CurrentWare subscription plan to use this feature.
Why give employees access to their computer activity data?
Once enabled, this optional BrowseReporter feature provides your end-users with the ability to access their user activity data directly from the CurrentWare Client.
To access their data your employees simply need to click the CurrentWare icon that appears in their computer’s system tray and open the dashboard.
The new group summary reports for BrowseReporter provide a convenient way to further your insights by aggregating the user activity data of your employees.
Yes. At this time we have no plans to deprecate the Winform version of CurrentWare and we will give advance notice if that is going to occur.
Transitioning to the Web Console provides the potential for new developments such as seamless reporting and data dashboards. As we move to newer web-based technologies with the Web Console there is a possibility that some new features will not be compatible with the Winform console.
Yes. Legacy customers that would like to remain on perpetual licenses can continue to use their CurrentWare products indefinitely. However, to gain access to the Web Console you will need to upgrade to a CurrentWare subscription plan.
If you’re a legacy customer transitioning from perpetual licenses to a 6.0+ subscription plan you will get an exclusive loyalty discount when you upgrade your licenses before June 30th, 2021.
No, the CurrentWare 6.0 subscription plan and the Web Console are not a cloud-native solution. However, you can install CurrentWare on a cloud platform of your choice with our Bring Your Own Cloud option.
At this time CurrentWare and the new Web Console will continue to be offered as an on-premises solution.
Just as before, CurrentWare will not have access to your employee’s data. All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s software is stored on a database that is fully controlled and managed by your organization. For more information please refer to our Terms of Service
