Yaware.TimeTracker vs Hubstaff
What Is Hubstaff?
Hubstaff is a time tracking application for remote teams, that allows to track time spent on a specific project, once the employee selects one. The tool also provides an opportunity to take screenshots, as well as build timesheets and reports.
What Is Yaware.TimeTracker?
Yaware.TimeTracker is a web-based application for tracking time for freelancers, office and remote employees. The software allows to take screenshots, webcam snapshots and generates a wide range of reports, as well as allows to create timesheets.
Tracking of Online Activities
Hubstaff only allows to track time, and does not allow to capture visited websites and used applications. In contrast Yaware.TimeTracker collects the data about used resources and generates them into reports with the time spent on them.
Tracking of Offline Activities
Hubstaff does not track employees’ offline activities. As for Yaware.TimeTracker, it records the time, when you are away from the workplace, and once you return to the computer, asks you to describe the offline activity. This way you have a clear view of the whole workday.
Assigning Group Managers with Different Access Levels to the Reports
Hubstaff provides managers with reports and timesheets. In contrast Yaware.TimeTracker allows to create desirable organizational structure and assign group managers with different access levels.
Thanks to this feature you can grant different access to the reports to the following staff:
- System administrator
- HR department
Unlike Hubstaff, Yaware.TimeTracker takes webcam snapshots with desirable frequency (minimum 3 minutes). This feature allows to monitor the workplaces of remote employees more efficiently.
If you need objective data on employees’ productivity, you can run Yaware.TimeTracker in hidden mode, so the employees will not know that they are being monitored. Hubstaff does not have this feature.
Access to Personal Statistics for Employees
With the help of Hubstaff employees can create timesheets and managers view reports. In contrast Yaware.TimeTracker, if installed in open mode, gives staff a chance to analyze their personal statistics. This feature helps employees to review their workday and improve performance level.
