Companies looking to battle challenges around remote working and productivity might consider the solutions from Teramind, a software publisher based in Florida.
Teramind provides employee monitoring, data loss prevention (DLP) and workplace productivity software to a global customer base and has just announced its latest suite of products targeting a fast adaptation to managing distributed teams.
“As the world struggles with the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are forced to implement work-from-home policies to protect their employees,” the firm explains in its news release.
“However, while this type of arrangement has many benefits, remote teams bring some unique challenges for companies unfamiliar with the process, which can be exacerbated when scaled at a frantic pace.
“Communication, supervision, accountability, the difficulty of tracking projects, timeline and payroll, security – all can add up to diminish the smooth operation of a business.”
The revamped product lineup focuses on productivity, communication and security across remote teams, according to Isaac Kohen, Teramind’s VP of research and development.
“With the right strategy and tools, companies can monitor remote workers effectively to identify and address these productivity, security and compliance issues of a distributed team,” he said.
“Whether you are a remote-working veteran, a first-time homebound employee, or you are in a regulated industry who needs extra security beyond a VPN connection, Teramind has an option that will meet your remote team’s productivity, security and compliance requirements.”
It is currently promoting an all-inclusive remote employee monitoring solution to track time and engagement, manage projects, reduce expenses and ensure the overall productivity of a remote team. Additionally, Teramind’s automated policy and rules engine works to enforce security best practice against theft, sabotage and other threats.
Teramind has also introduced five new tools for time tracking and project management: a web-based time tracker, two brand-new cost reports for identifying employee and task costs, a time records report and a timesheet/timecard module. There are also mobile apps for monitoring remote teams and productivity, including real time alerts and live views of user desktops.
“All of these are seamlessly integrated with our employee monitoring and DLP engine, allowing you to start using them right away,” according to the release.
