WorkSnaps Software Review: Overview – Features – Pricing
WorkSnaps is a one of its kind utility that helps in tracking the hours spent on work by a person. It is extremely useful for freelancers or other employees working on an hourly basis. It is especially useful for a manager or supervisor whose team members are located in remote locations. It is a dynamic software that records work on the basis of screenshots, mouse clicks and keyboard strokes. It also produces verifiable proof, instead of just presenting a tedious work log.
Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Verifiable and Accurate Recording of Operations: WorkSnaps records the activities and operations of the user. These are random screenshots, called work snaps, taken in every 10-minute interval to make the work verifiable. The snaps also hold information about the mouse and keyboard activities, along with the tools used by the user during that period.
- Real-Time Monitoring: All the tracked time gets uploaded on the server in real-time, and therefore available immediately for monitoring. This means that users no longer have to wait for the end of the day or end of the week for their activities to get noticed and reviewed.
- Extensive Charts and Reporting Features: Work performance of candidates can be analysed in-depth, and thus, managed better with the help of the charts and reports that WorkSnaps offers. Users can use these reports and graphs to understand the working patterns and productivity analysis, and managers can use this data for work division and timeline estimation.
- Invoice generation: This application also has a tool through which invoices can be generated automatically based on the number of hours worked.
