Employee Monitoring Software Development

The year 2020 has been challenging for many industries on a global scale. The COVID-19 pandemic caused many companies to shut down completely while others were forced to work remotely as a precautionary measure. Therefore, it became difficult for enterprises to manage their workforce in the absence of an employee tracking system. As we approach 2021, many companies (especially in the IT sector) will continue to work remotely despite several relaxations in COVID-19 restrictions. Having said that, it becomes more important to invest in employee monitoring software development in 2021.


We, at Oodles ERP, have a proven track record in workforce management software development with a focus on integrating next-gen technologies. We provide enterprise-grade employee monitoring software development services to facilitate seamless collaboration, compliance, and HR administration. Our development team uses open-source ERP platforms like Odoo and ERPNext to develop high-quality workforce management solutions for cross-industry enterprise use cases.

What To Expect From an Employee Monitoring System In 2021?

A remote employee monitoring system must ensure that all employees are working as per their fixed task schedule. It must provide real-time information about the active workforce tasks and keep tabs on all employee activities. The key features of an effective employee monitoring system range from tracking keystrokes, app usage, internet activity to taking random screenshots at regular intervals. 


In 2021, it has become crucial for enterprises to have these features embedded in their employee monitoring system to create productive work from home environment. Furthermore, they can have the app installed on their employees’ mobile devices to track their GPS location, mobile usage, and idle hours.
