Internet usage monitor to track employees at work
Our powerful analytics engine will give you a wealth of stats on how web surfing time at your company is distributed between users, computers, user groups, departments, sites, website categories and even by days of the week, dates and hours!
Unlike other Internet monitoring tools, Work Examiner not only collects data about the website address and the date of access, but it also calculates the amount of time that the user spent on the site (including active and idle time).
Web time usage analytics will give you answers to numerous questions such as these:
- What websites do your employees devote the most time to?
- Which of your employees spends the most time online?
- Between which website groups is time online distributed?
Thanks to the huge website content database, you do not need to organize sites by groups — this is done automatically. If you still desire to anyway, you can arrange sites using 80 customizable built-in categories.
Work Examiner logs all HTTP/HTTPS requests, including them in a detailed web usage report with several parameters: user, computer, start time, end time, website, URL, window title and active/inactive/total time. Thanks to this report, you will always know who has visited which URL and when.
Web filtering works with any type of Internet connection. Web filtering rules allow you to:
- Block sites by URL, content keyword, built-in category or URL mask
- Use auto-updatable website content database with 2.300.000+ domains and 80+ categories
- Block all sites except for specified ones
- Specify users, user groups, computers and departments to apply the rule to
- Apply web filtering rules to some or all employees
- Show a custom “Access Denied” page
- Redirect to your corporate website (or any other URL) instead of showing the “Access Denied” page
- Apply a filtering rule with a delay
- Do not block a site, but display an alert instead
- Close TCP ports
- Filter requests from specified programs only
- Block HTTPS websites
Get e-mail notifications when specified web sites are accessed, including the username, computer, time, URL and web filter action description (was the request blocked or not). The e-mail message text can be customized.
Employees can also view a visible, customizable message when they access a restricted page. This is useful when a page is not blocked but you want to alert the user.
Any web rule can be applied with a delay and custom “before apply” messages can also be used. For example, every five minutes, users can see a message such as “You have 30 minutes of free web surfing remaining for today,” “You have 25 minutes of free web surfing remaining for today,” “...20 minutes...” and so on.
This is a logical complement to user alert functions. You can show a special real-time counter on top of restricted websites. The timer will show the time left before applying the filtering rule, which is counted down each second while the user is surfing the site. The timer is placed so as to avoid interfering with the user: the timer is hidden on allowed pages and shown only on restricted ones.
