Activity Monitor is the solution you needed!

This powerful employee monitoring software allows you to track any LAN, giving you the most detailed information on what, how and when your network users performed. Whether it is a library public network, university or commercial organization network – Activity Monitor offers efficient control.

Our employee monitor consists of server and client parts. Activity Monitor server can be installed on any computer in the entire LAN.
