About Work Examiner

Work Examiner is a computer and internet monitoring software which enables businesses of any size to track employee work time usage and control their web usage with features such as website tracking, real-time desktop screenshots, web filtering, PC tracking, keylogging, email recording technology, and more. Work Examiner installs a client-server app into the corporate environment which runs silently in the background of the employee’s computer to track hours spent on apps and websites, and give users detailed reports and data.

Work Examiner’s internet monitoring software is designed to enhance computer surveillance to prevent critical data leaks, as well as to increase employee productivity and efficiency by providing users with information on who is staying focused, and who is spending too much time on social media sites. Website tracking technology gives a comprehensive view of employee activity on the internet, providing information such as website address visited, date of access, and amount of active/idle time spent on the site. Work Examiner can also track Google search requests and file downloads, plus export web usage data to PDF, XLS and other formats for further analysis.

Work Examiner allows users to obtain employee desktop screenshots in real time and in recorded playback mode, as well as build their own web filtering policy by deciding which sites to block or how much free time to allow employees per day. Email notifications alert users if an employee attempts to access any prohibited site. Summary computer usage reports and scheduled reports give users quick and actionable insight into employee internet activity. Other Work Examiner features include email recording and instant messaging capturing.

    Great tool for employee monitoring activities on the web

    Reviewed on 2018/06/21

    Pros

    The tool is very easy to use and the interface is very intuitive. It allows quickly monitor what kind of acitivities employees are doing during the day. The tool also can block certain social media sites, programs and sites to increase working productivity. There are other good features like keylogger, instant messages monitoring, screenshot capture, but I didn't check them .

    Cons

    The tool is available only for PC. It will be better to get the tool for mobile and track activities from mobile phones remotely.

    Pros

    I can monitor internet usage and/or programs that employees are using during the work day. It gives me the amount of time spent on each site or program and the time of day. Very detailed and very pleased with this software. Before I had this software I had a problem employee who would surf the web and even watch streamed tv shows. Once I was able to review her works habits with her she straightened right up and no more problems.

    It just works. Dashboards are complete and perfect

    Reviewed on 2020/01/27

    Pros

    We did a thorough analysis of all software packages; we have tested and tried each of them. We use the cloud version of Work Examiner (Controlio) and we immediately were convinced. It does *exactly* what we need in a seamless way.

    Cons

    No Mac version available. But we were informed they are working on this !

    Great tool to really understand what really happens in your business

    Reviewed on 2019/12/16

    Pros

    This tool helps you understand what your employee really do when you absent in the office.
    It shows you:
    * what webpages do employee navigate,
    * captures keys that user pressed (logs keys)
    * large amount of detailed statistcs/charts/reports by apps/pages and so on
    * captures Chats/IM traffic
    * captures files usage/downloads/uploads/online searches/emails
    * and so on

    It's not a simply useful app. This is the app that real business MUST HAVE!

    Cons

    For now Work Examiner cannot make you a cup of coffee, but I guess this will be available in the future updates (it's joke, but who knows...)
