Monitask is a cost-effective and simple solution for tracking employee performance.
The software is easy to use and designed for remote teams of employees that includes automatic timesheets and screenshots of employees' workstations as proof of work done.
Screenshot monitoring is entirely transparent to the employees, and they control when the monitoring starts and when it stops.
Monitask includes a free version that is fantastic for personal use. The software allows up to six screenshots per hour, activity tracking, online timesheets, application tracking, and a reporting tool. The free version is also an excellent tool for freelancers as it allows them to show proof of work being done for their clients.
According to Monitask, to use the app, employees or freelancers can invite their manager via email to the company's Monitask team. If one of the companies you work for does not use Monitask, users can easily invite them to join.
Monitask's Professional Version comes with a free 10-day trial (no credit card required). The free trial is great for anyone who is unsure if they need or want to use the software. Users can test out all the features and see if it is right for their company. If not, users can cancel any time they want.
Monitask services cost $4.99 per month, per user. Making Monitask one of the cheapest options in the industry.
Clients can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel their contracts at any time. There are no lock-in contracts.
Monitask makes it clear that its services are not for spying on employees. After installing Monitask to their Windows or Mac desktop, employees have full control of when the time tracking begins (along with screenshot taking) and when it stops. Employees can also see the last screenshot taken, so they are completely aware of what's being uploaded for review.
While Monitask has time tracking, application tracking, online timesheets, and more, the company does not have an auto-start screenshot monitoring. However, Monitaks explains that the feature is not supported because the company allows employees to take control of their own privacy by letting them decide when to turn on or turn off screenshot monitoring.
Additionally, Monitask does not have a way for companies to pay their remote employees.
