We’re delighted to announce that Insightful has been named as a top employee monitoring software solution by Forbes in 2022.

Forbes selected Insightful as the best remote work tracking software for privacy and promoting transparency. 

Forbes Advisor used the following criteria to reach its decision:

  • Ease of use - How easy it is for users to install and operate the computer tracking software
  • Costs and fees - The monthly fees and user limits of the software and any free options it offers
  • Customer support - How the software supports customers with different pricing plans
  • Features and functionality - The usefulness and ease of use of various features

User reviews and company reputation also factored into the decision-making process.

Why Forbes Selected Insightful

Forbes singled out Insightful from dozens of workplace surveillance software solutions for its commitment to protecting employee privacy at work. The leading publication highlighted how employee reporting software Insightful offers companies the option to use the employee monitoring tools either in a visible or stealth mode.

Forbes praised how through offering a visible mode, Insightful allows for a healthy employee monitoring policy whereby employees are empowered to visualize and control the exposure of their data. This in turn, they verify, promotes greater accountability as employees and employers alike can keep track of hours worked and review productivity reports.

Here’s what Forbes contributor Jennifer Simonson had to say about Insightful:

“Insightful offers the best choice for employee privacy. The software uses both visible and stealth modes. Visible mode gives employees more control over the exposure of their data. Companies can promote accountability by sharing detailed productivity reports with their employees.”

The publication recommends workforce optimization suite Insightful to companies wishing to promote transparency and put the power of accountability through data transparency in the hands of employees.

Top features highlighted by Forbes:

  • Free 7-day trial and affordable premium plans
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Time and attendance tracking
  • Both monthly and annual pricing plans
  • Visible and stealth mode
  • Live support for every plan
  • 24/7 phone support with the Only Enterprise plan

How Insightful Reacted to the News

“In today’s increasingly digital world, privacy and transparency have never been so important,” Mr. Petrovic said.

“We’ve made privacy and transparency central to our product from day one because this breeds trust between companies and employees. That said, there’s a fine line when it comes to privacy and transparency, which we successfully navigate by involving employees in the whole process – something other solutions don’t do.”

“Today, we’re seeing more and more companies come to us with privacy top of mind, and because our product has been built with a privacy-first mindset from the ground up, we’re able to deliver on their needs.”
