- Use Cases
Veriato Cerebral adds a whole new dimension to employee monitoring, letting you record and review anything or everything that your employees do on their PCs, Macs and Android devices. Cerebral offers simple implementation with cloud and on-premise options. You can deploy and manage the recorders from the Cerebral dashboard, so that you never have to physically visit the employees’ machines.
Imagine a surveillance camera pointed directly at each PC/MAC/Android, filming all on screen activity, and storing it securely for later review. Cerebral’s Time-Capsule DVR takes snapshots of everything on the computer screen – as often as once per second, creating a digital surveillance recording, that you can playback later to see everything that the employee did on their computer. Recordings can be exported as JPG or AVI files and used as management tools, for HR actions or even as legally binding evidence for prosecutions or in defense of wrongful termination suits.
Reviewing the screen recordings is simple with Veriato's easy to use DVR-like controls. Just click "PLAY" to see exactly what they were doing on the computer. Cerebral makes searching through hundreds of hours of video simple with it's Smart Search feature. Simply input a keyword and Cerebral will quickly locate the specific video clips, screen-shots and logs that you're looking for. Skip ahead, rewind, jump to a specific date and time or even print individual screenshots for use as a management tool or for evidence.
Cerebral will track how long a program is open and more importantly, how long an employee is actively using it. An accounts receivable rep. having an accounting program open all day, but only using it for 15 minutes is a sure sign of trouble!
Receive productivity alerts (Joe has been on Facebook for 5 hours) and security alerts (Kurt just uploaded the complete client list to a cloud account). Keywords are customizable words or phrases that are specific to your company, such as sensitive documents or project names. Additionally, Cerebral provides standard keyword lists for indicators of fraud, hate speech, violence and hacking.
Cerebral's AI is watching all employees 24/7. When it sees unusual behavior that indicates a possible threat, it will alert you right away, so that you can review the video and take action
69% of employees admit to taking valuable data when they left a job and 71% percent of U.S. workers are so unhappy at work, that they are looking for a new job.* This terrifying fact should alarm all companies, but small and mid-sized businesses are in greater peril from disgruntled employees because:
If you could see which employees were working hard and which were wasting time, how much more productive could your team be? 1%? 10%? 20%?
How much is your time worth? Reducing management time and hassle and gaining back hours each week is every manager’s dream. If your team was working at peak efficiency, how many hours would you gain per day? ½ hour? 1 hour? 2 hours?
If your annual revenue = $2.5 million
1% increase in productivity = $25K additional revenue
10% increase in productivity = $250K additional revenue
20% increase in productivity = $500K additional revenue
If you’re time is worth $150/hr.
½ hour saved per day = $18k/year
1 hour saved per day = $36k/year
2 hour saved per day = $72k/year
Reducing your stress level… priceless!
According to PCMag, Capterra, and Business.com, the best screen monitoring software for PC is Veriato. Using cutting-edge AI-driven systems, Veriato not only records your employee’s screens, but it can also trigger alerts and notify you of anything that could represent a risk to your company.
By knowing exactly how people are working, the software can then provide not only reports and recordings, but also sends alerts for problems and raises possible concerns before they become serious.
Whether you’re on a Mac or PC, Veriato is ideal for those looking for a cross-platform screen monitoring software.
Some of the features most requested by businesses worldwide include:
SCREENSHOTS - Get proof of what’s happening with alert screenshots or recordings.
WEB SEARCHES & WEBSITE INTERACTIONS - See everything that your employees are doing online, with full reports of which websites are used and how. Even searches are recorded, so those looking for a new job or sharing inappropriate information will quickly be brought to your attention.
FILE MOVEMENT TRACKING - includes the use of USB dongles, uploads, and downloads. Know not only which files are accessed, but exactly where they are and how they are being moved around. This is a great way to protect your proprietary data.
EMAIL & WEBMAIL, SOCIAL MEDIA, INSTANT MESSAGING, & CHATS - Know what is discussed and with who. Social media can be a major distraction, so the simple knowledge that it is monitored is enough to deter a lot of time-wasting activities.
Productivity tracking is also built-in. This allows managers to monitor application usage, bottleneck issues, the printing of records and much more.
The web provides many options, including increasing flexibility in the way companies and employees operate. However, the internet also presents a lot of extra exposure to risks that previously didn’t exist. When used incorrectly, there is an abundance of distractions available, which can reduce a company's productivity.
Without monitoring devices during work hours, it is almost impossible to know what employees are actually doing. They could be whiling away half of the workweek on social media, or worse, they could be committing internal sabotage or stealing data.
Fortunately, employee internet monitoring software helps to easily put an end to many of these concerns and issues. Those that aren’t fixed automatically will then be flagged to management as issues that require focus.
Small businesses with smaller budgets may wonder if it’s worth investing in an employee monitoring solution. They consider that a small business has fewer employees to monitor and that the cost could outweigh the benefits.
The truth, however, is that a small business is often at higher risk than bigger corporations. Large companies can afford losses and million-dollar data breach penalties. For a small business, this kind of issue could result in bankruptcy and closure.
The staff of a small business is often more friendly and close to the management. Sometimes, this can also lead to acts being purposely overlooked or not noticed at all. There is a need for the team to get along, but this can cause productivity issues and even losses that a small business can’t afford.
By installing internet monitoring software for a small business, the owners and staff are given facts. It isn’t about judgment or friendship. It comes down to whether someone is doing a good job or not. Management can still decide what is acceptable and make adjustments accordingly.
This allows small business owners to determine company issues and address them accordingly. For example, someone that is wasting time watching online videos may need a performance review. However, it may be acceptable for an employee working in a quiet shop to watch some videos during lunch and quiet periods (if there is nothing to do).
The cost of installing employee monitoring software is based on the number of devices. This also makes it an affordable option, no matter the size of the company. Increased productivity and security often save more than this software costs. So, why not try it for a few months and see how it changes your small business?
More and more companies are using remote workers. It is hard for them to know if the staff they hire are actually getting the work done. Remote employees submit hourly invoices, yet have no way of documenting how the time was actually spent.
Using Veriato, you can monitor your remote employees and log in to the software to get reports, screenshots, and data about your employee’s performance. Some companies don’t want any involvement unless there is an actual issue. Others prefer to be actively involved and will monitor their employees day to day activities.
Remote employee monitoring software will enable you to set up a global workforce. You can hire employees wherever there is talent, potentially reduce employee overhead, and improve productivity.
Employee monitoring software is used to track employee activities. This includes any kind of digital activity performed on a company-owned device (or company registered device).
It is not about spying on staff, but about protecting the business and streamlining processes. While employee monitoring software certainly does provide added security, it also has a lot of additional benefits.
Many employers look for monitoring software and services once they become concerned about security. However, there are many additional improvements that this type of program brings to companies.
With the massive amount of data that this kind of software collects about each individual being monitored, companies are able to focus on growth instead of micro management. Integrated AI analysis means issues are raised to management as they occur, allowing senior staff to focus on what really needs their attention.
Over time performance will likely increase across the board, and so the company can become far more efficient and profitable. This means that what started as employee monitoring for security, can help to turn an average or even a struggling company into a stable and profitable business.
