HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL CLOWDWORK?
The initial setup will take around 10 minutes for the administrator and 3-5 minutes for general users. Thereafter, the reports will be generated automatically and it will be up to the administrator to review these reports when they deem appropriate. The entire implementation can be done remotely.
HOW CAN I USE CLOWDWORK TO MAKE SURE MY TEAM IS PRODUCTIVE?
ClowdWork monitors the use of work time and based on that it generates productivity indicators that show you if the activities are aligned with the company’s objectives. The platform has several reports that allow you to measure the productivity of office and remote teams. For example, you can take screenshots to track work progress (this is an optional feature).
ARE THERE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT PRIVACY?
The software does not record activities when people are not working or when private mode is enabled. The employer has the right to manage the use of working time during the hours established in the contract, provided that they respect out-of-work hours.
I DO NOT NEED TO MONITOR MY WORK TEAM. ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS OF DOING SO?
Absolutely. Implementing ClowdWork will allow you to cost the time invested in projects or processes, detect bottlenecks or unnecessary work activities that may be affecting productivity. Work time use metrics allow decision-making to improve and optimize processes.
DOES THIS SOFTWARE WORK FOR INDIVIDUALS?
Yes. Although some of ClowdWork’s functionalities are more relevant to team productivity, many individual users can take advantage of metrics to improve their own time management. ClowdWork helps you understand how much time is being spent on certain tasks and keeps you focused on priority tasks.
WE ALREADY BLOCK NON-PRODUCTIVE WEBSITES AT OUR COMPANY. WHAT IS THE POINT OF INSTALLING THIS SOFTWARE?
Blocking certain web pages is only the first step in increasing productivity. There are several factors that affect corporate efficiency. Among these are constant interruptions, e.g. WhatsApp. Currently, there are no measurements of how much these interruptions are costing the company. ClowdWork empowers employees to optimize their time and provides managers with strategic information to improve efficiency.
IS IT POSSIBLE FOR MY TEAM TO RESIST WHEN I IMPLEMENT THE SOFTWARE?
That is a possibility. When implementing ClowdWork, encouraging a more efficient and productive work ethic may initially create some uncertainty for some collaborators. However, once the software is installed, transparency at work and the recognition of patterns of non-productivity empowers people to improve their own work time management. Additionally, in most cases, collaborators understand that productivity management is essential to the existence of flexible or remote work models.
