Published Date: October 6, 2019

The answer is straight – Adherence to guidelines and avoid conflicts when it comes to what an employee claims Vs what was done. Every Organization tries both manual and automatic tools to have their process streamlined with check-points to monitor their employees.

How do they do it? 

Typically, companies have the following ways to monitor an employee:

  • Monitoring E-mails:  40% of the employers track their employee’s e-mail for any source code, malware, or confidential documents.
  • Recording Phone calls: All the calls done by the Tele-callers are recorded (of course for Quality & Training purpose). The purpose is also to track their conversation with their clients and take measures to improve quality.
  • Location tracking: Generally, employers/managers would like to get an update on the meeting schedule of their team members. Since sales or consulting work would involve travel to client locations, they would love to track employees whereabouts. This is typically done with the help of time sheets. In smaller Organizations, the sales guy is supposed to take the pic of the business card of the client. It is not easy to build trust with employees, but with constant questioning, a sales executive will lose interest in the company.

So what could be the solution?

The answer is Location Intelligence. A mobile App with attendance management, location tracking, and reporting would be the best solution, and Lystloc does just that.
