Employee monitoring software by technology

Cloud-based is hosted on software provider’s servers. All data is managed and stored on the server of the software providers. It can be accessed via a web browser.
On-premise as the name implies, it is installed and run on the company’s own computers/servers rather than on the servers of the software provider.
The merits and drawbacks of both cloud-based and on-premises solutions influence market demand.

On-premises vs. cloud-based software

Cloud-based software – Statistics show that this fast-growing trend is gaining momentum mainly due to the numerous benefits and advancements associated with cloud technology, such as improved accuracy and performance, improved manageability and less maintenance, efficient and cost-effective employee monitoring for end-users. In terms of data protection, cloud solutions depend on third-party security measures, which is the main concern for enterprises that want to protect sensitive data.

On-premises – Statistics show that this trend, on the other hand, is slowly waning as cloud technologies continue to evolve. But there are still a few reasons why many businesses still stick to it. As far as data security is concerned, organizations have more control over on-premises solutions. However, all data functions, upgrades, and customization must be handled by specialized IT personnel. It also requires a higher upfront capital investment for installation and maintenance, which may be a concern for small and medium enterprises.

Employee monitoring software market by organization size/end users

Large Enterprise – Enterprises (especially large ones) such as the banking and financial industries, healthcare, insurance, government, hospitality, manufacturing, and IT industries opt for on-premise services due to growing volumes of sensitive and business-related data.
Small and Medium Enterprise – Budget-conscious businesses looking for a less hands-on approach adopt cloud-based services. However, as more security issues and challenges with data-encryption are being solved by evolving cloud services, large enterprises may lean towards a combination of both.

WorkTime Cloud and WorkTime Corporate(on-premise) provide a wide range of features that offer pure employee monitoring to both small/medium and large enterprises globally.
