ActivTrak Named PCMag Editors’ Choice for Best Employee Monitoring Software

Noted as "Google Analytics for your office" and best of the productivity-focused monitoring products

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ActivTrak, Inc., a leader in workforce productivity and analytics software, today announced it has won the PCMag Editors’ Choice Award for Best Employee Monitoring Software in 2020, and been recognized as the best of the productivity-focused tools. This is the second year in a row ActivTrak has been named an Editors’ Choice.

For more than 35 years, PCMag has been the leading authority on technology buying, delivering independent reviews of more than 2,500 products per year. The PCMag Editors’ Choice award is the publication’s highest endorsement and recognized globally as a trusted symbol for buyers and sellers of technology products and services.

This year’s PCMag review of the top 10 employee monitoring software providers recognizes the challenges many companies face with remote workforces as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic — and the importance of using organizational tools for distributed teams working outside of established office structures.

According to PCMag, ActivTrak “is the best of the products we tested, with a clear focus on employee productivity and team behavior analytics.” Highlights also include:

  • “ActivTrak features the most intuitive user interface we've seen in cloud-based employee monitoring solutions and does a remarkable job of organizing data and function on a single webpage.”
  • “Advanced analytics within ActivTrak are useful and manage to make sense of employee data in new ways to give businesses insights they wouldn't otherwise have.”
  • “Improved capabilities around remote workers make this a good tool to watch during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Understanding the productivity of today’s distributed workforces requires a new set of metrics based on user interactions with applications, websites and each other,” said Javier Aldrete, vice president of products, ActivTrak. “We’re thrilled to be named a PCMag Editors’ Choice once again, ranked as the best of the productivity-focused products and recognized for redefining how organizations put workforce analytics and insights to use."

In addition to the PCMag Editors’ Choice Award, ActivTrak is listed on the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies, and consistently one of the top-rated products on Capterra, G2 Crowd, Trustpilot, and Spiceworks, among others.
