Businesses today rely on mobile technology for their employees more than ever before. This leaves room for low productivity caused by employees performing personal tasks on mobile phones and tablets when they should be working. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter can be a constant distraction for those who feel they must stay tuned in to their favorite interests and be available at all times to communicate with family and friends. PhoneSheriff helps employers keep mobile phone and tablet usage in check during business hours. This page describes the different ways that businesses can use PhoneSheriff.
The photo caption above illustrates a typical scenario of people who feel they need to spend any available time on their mobile phones and tablets. All the time spent checking emails, tweeting, and surfing the web for personal reasons have caused huge losses in productivity during working hours. If you are a business owner then you want to do whatever it takes to change behavior that hurts the bottom line. PhoneSheriff is the perfect tool to help you control how much time your employees spend on their mobile phones and tablets.
PhoneSheriff allows you to solve this problem by blocking certain functions of the phone at certain times of each day. For example you can tell the software to lock the phone or tablet at certain times of the day. On smartphones you can choose to lock the entire phone or you can lock just the ability to make calls while the other functions of the phone remain operable.
Most employers try to hire employees after background checks and proper interviews. Still there is a chance that a company employee will steal from his current employer. According to the US Chamber of Commerce, it is estimated that employee theft alone costs companies $20 to $40 billion per year, and a whopping 75% of employee related theft goes undiscovered. These staggering figures should prompt employers to do more to stop employee theft.
Many employees today have access to the internet on their company provided smartphones and tablets, and many of them tend to abuse their internet connection while their supervisor is not around. These small daily usages can add up to long hours of personal use which can hurt the company's overall productivity. You need PhoneSheriff monitoring software to record your employees' smartphone and tablet internet activities and show them what they are doing wrong.
If your employees are out in the field, how do you know if they are traveling efficiently to and from their assigned destinations? Do you suspect that they may be taking side trips for personal reasons? You need to know where your employees are during work hours in order to be certain that they are not wasting valuable time.
Previously there was no certain way to verify your employee's location without installing a GPS tracking device in their car, but now most smartphones and tablets come with a GPS receiver built inside. PhoneSheriff can utilize the GPS receiver in your employee's smartphone or tablet to act as a silent GPS tracker. It captures and uploads GPS locations every 30 minutes and you can get instant tracks by sending a hidden SMS message to your employee's phone. You will get a reply message stating the coordinates at that specific time.
Securing company information in today's competitive environment is proving to be more difficult than ever before. Company provided smartphones and tablets give employees instant access to some of your most sensitive information that they can quickly share with outsiders. That's why so many businesses are making PhoneSheriff part of their employee monitoring plan.
PhoneSheriff monitoring and filtering software for mobile phones and tablets will help you to find out if and when employees access the information that you are trying to protect. One way is by using the custom keyword alert. You'll find out if they viewed a page or file with the keyword you specify. The messaging, call information, and contacts logs will give you insight into their communications.
