Background

MySammy, LLC pioneered the Productivity Measurement Solution. It started as a software project for performance measurement for telecommuting employees working remotely. At the time, management experimented with the idea of allowing telecommuting employees to work from home through terminal server. To management's surprise there was no proper management software solution on the market to measure performance of telecommuting employees. A reliable management tool was needed to measure productivity for the company since managers weren't able to see employees face to face and feared employees becoming complacent. Simply blocking non-productive web sites did not encourage productivity for the telecommuting employees. The key was to engage users' time. Therefore management pioneered a Productivity Measurement Solution known as MySammy.

Why You Need MySammy

Website Blocking and PC Monitoring Are Becoming Less Effective
Many employers address the Internet challenge by implementing website blocking to prevent employees from accessing nonproductive websites. Others install computer monitoring software to prevent Internet abuse. These solutions were designed to prevent employees from wasting time on the Internet, but they have become less effective in recent years. One reason is many employees now have a personal smart phone. Social media, shopping, news, banking and almost everything else on a PC are available on a smart phone.
The Key to Success Is Employee Performance Measurement
The key to encourage employee productivity is to have quantifiable measurements for employee performance reviews. This sounds easy, but it is one of the most challenging parts of running a business. The employee performance measurement will depend on the position and nature of the business. Many small to medium sized companies have difficulty coming up with good performance measurements.
MySammy Measures Employee Productivity
MySammy is a remote monitoring software solution that assists management with employee performance evaluations. It collects the computer activities of an employee and presents managers with easy-to-read graphs and charts. Management can compare data from different employees and set a reasonable computer active/productive percentage. This can be used as an objective in employee performance appraisals to encourage employees to achieve their full potential.
