What you might have assumed already is now official: human beings have worse attention spans than your common goldfish. Hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, turning us into hyper-alert hunters and gatherers at the top of the food chain, has been undone by less than a decade of Twitter live-streams and Facebook viral stories. Goldfish (who apparently don’t use the Internet – who knew?) can pay attention to what’s in front of them for nine seconds, while your average joe on the street now struggles to stay focused for eight.
It’s just one more piece of evidence showing that people are more distracted than ever; and what technology has broken, technology can hopefully help fix. In business, computer monitoring software isn’t just helpful – it’s essential for overworked IT folks who can’t possibly have eyes everywhere at once.
Indeed, we saw just a few weeks back that in one of the most highly regulated, technical industries around, manual monitoring can be disastrous. In this case, it was airline cockpit pilots who chillingly can’t seem to stay focused on all those buttons and dials on their dashboard while their planes are in flight:Read More
How much time do your employees spend actually working? Less than you might think – potentially, a lot less. In Britain, an urban myth caught on that a man had died at the office and none of his co-workers noticed while wandering by his cubicle until the fifth day. It wasn’t true – but the reason the story caught so much traction is that it was just so believable. It’s easy to imagine the anonymous cog of an employee being ignored as he literally rots at his desk – because workers are often disconnected not just from the work they’re doing, but from their own co-workers in the next line of cubicles.
We can talk about how computer monitoring helps companies stay lean and profitable until we’re blue in the face – but we’d much rather that you hear it straight from our happy customers who can say it for us.
We’re grateful to a number of our clients for sharing their stories of how computer monitoring is working for them in our new case studies:
Do you suspect that your employees spend too much of the working time chatting with their friends? Indeed, personal chats in instant messengers on the workplace during office hours has become one of the most critical problems for many managers and business owners. If you need to track your employee chatting and other activities in Yahoo Messenger, SoftActivity is here to provide you with an extremely powerful, easy-to-use, yet affordably priced tools to handle this crucial business task with minimum investments and efforts involved.
We provide sophisticated, full-fledged computer spy software solutions for business monitoring needs – Activity Monitor and SoftActivity TS Monitor that include not only a Yahoo Messenger spy recorder, but also the comprehensive range of advanced monitoring and recording tools designed to help you gain total control over all your network activities.
While Activity Monitor comes perfectly for local network tracking needs, SoftActivity TS Monitor is designed specifically for recording Terminal Server sessions.

Moreover, Activity Monitor and SoftActivity TS Monitor work perfectly with all popular IM clients, including Skype, Windows Live Messenger, AOL and IRC.
Our programs can be easily installed on any computer within your LAN. You can also install them remotely from your administrator’s PC or via Active Directory Group Policy in a Windows domain and then monitor Yahoo messenger chats in your entire network from any location with Internet access.
Start using Activity Monitor or SoftActivity TS Monitor from SoftActivity today to prevent your employees from using Yahoo Messenger or other IMs for personal chatting purposes as well as to avoid any other Internet abuse and data leakage problems.
An instant messenger (IM) is a very easy, convenient and quick way to communicate online and in real-time. Various IM programs are used today for personal chatting and business communication needs, with ICQ being one of the most popular among them. That’s why, for the recent years there has been a rather stable demand for programs and applications to spy on ICQ chats. While business owners and managers face the crucial problem of their employees spending too much of working time chatting with friends, parents are also greatly concerned about who their children chat with and what information they share while being online.
While many other ICQ spy systems are easily detectable by even non tech-savvy users making it impossible to see what they actually type, computer monitoring tools by SoftActivity are designed to be absolutely invisible and untraceable, which allows you to monitor text messages in ICQ and any other instant messengers in an absolutely secret mode.
Apart from a full-fledged ICQ spy recorder, our computer tracking systems come with an incredibly rich toolkit to allow you to monitor and record all computer activities – from keystrokes typed and websites visited to programs run and files downloaded. Once installed, they will secretly track everything what your users do while you are not around, with the recorded data sent to the central logs database as well as to your mailbox at your predefined time intervals.
What’s also important, all our computer tracking programs come with an intuitive, user-friendly interface, so that you don’t have to be a technical guru to use all their tools and options to the best advantage. For your ultimate convenience, reports are provided separately for every user monitored. Moreover, you can also easily export this data to MS Excel for advanced analysis.
