WorkTime has been an excellent tool for monitoring the work process of the remote and in-office workers of a Canadian rescue medical service company. The main objective of the monitoring process was to determine how long employees (specifically remote employees) spent working to avoid overcharge.
Number of monitored employees: 20
"WorkTime helps us save approximately $7,500 per employee every year" - feedback from the company's director.
The company's concern
The company's management suspected their remote employees were overcharging them.
Decision to monitor employees
Comparing the amount of money spent on salaries and the cost of WorkTime licenses, the company's management decided to implement the employee monitoring software to minimize losses due to the overcharging.
WorkTime - money saving solution
The company started using WorkTime to monitor employees' productivity. After using employee monitoring software, the management found significant issues with employee attendance and Internet use. WorkTime reports showed that a lot of employees (especially remote ones) were overcharging the company. Employees who claimed to work extra hours without actually working were identified. WorkTime also showed discrepancies between the timesheets reported initially, and WorkTime reports were approximately $7,500 per employee per year, which is about $150,000 per year.
Better time sheets - money saved
The company's management decided to show monitoring results to its employees. This information helped the employees see areas that needed improvement and helped improve productivity and build better timesheets. As a result, the company was able to save a lot of money.
