5 Disastrous Problems Android Spying You Can Solve

5 Disastrous Problems Android Spying You Can Solve

Gerhard Gschwantner, an author from Salzburg (Austria) said, “Problems are nothing but a wake-up call for creativity.” This is true in many ways. Unless one takes creative measures towards problem-solving, sticking to old ways is not going to help. Employee monitoring has become a recent and fast spreading trend in the business world.

An increasing number of companies are engaging in employee monitoring via xnspy android spying to track their performance. The practice also helps them avoid legal liabilities, protects the company’s trade secrets, and addresses other security concerns. In the end, this practice also has a positive impact on customer satisfaction.

Despite technological advances, companies cannot solve problems outside the walls of their office. According to the report on Techland.time.com titled Who’s Winning, iOS or Android? All the Numbers, All in One Place, androids have always taken the lead in the mobile market. This explains why company issued cell phones are mostly Android smartphones. They are easy to use and offer employers the benefit of finding compatible tracking apps much easily as opposed to iOS devices. Here is how using mobile software technology can help companies solve 5 major problems that they face.

1. Android spying enables tracking employees.

A large number of companies rely on the mobile workforce. It may be part of the employee’s duties to be on the go because of sales, marketing, or delivering products to customers. However, one of the greatest dilemmas they face is being sure that they are where they say they are. Using GPS tracking is the best solution for this and with apps such as GPS Tracker and XnSPy, it has become very easy. All employers have to do is install the app on the company issued cell phone.

2. Listening to calls that employees make.

Employers often worry about employees leaking or trading company secrets with competitors. There have been incidences in the past that led to serious losses to companies when employees committed espionage. However, with monitoring apps, employers can find peace of mind. They can listen to recorded calls employees make using the company-issued cell phones to screen what information they share.

Such apps also provide details like the exact time and duration of each call. Moreover, if an employer watch-lists a particular contact, the app alerts him/her whenever the watch-listed caller engages in calls with the target employee.

3. Tracking cell phone usage and idle time.

One of the greatest reasons for poor productivity and declining efficiency at a workplace is a lack of time management. Often, employees spend too much time on using their cell phone to surf the internet, play games, or watch movies stored on the smartphone. Companies experience avoidable mistakes due to distractions and suffer financial losses too.

To prevent this, modern spying apps come with the ability to track cell phone usage. They track the browser history, bookmarked pages, and they show the user, the frequency of visits by the target employee.

4. Access incoming and outgoing emails by employees.

Businesses rely on email correspondences. Gmail has proven to be one of the most reliable email clients that also allow business management. Managing teams and project using emails has become a very important business practice in recent times. However, sometimes, employees tend to abuse this privilege and use emails to send sensitive documents and company trade secrets.

By monitoring incoming and outgoing emails, employers can protect their business. Most apps for android spying offer email monitoring as one of the features.

5. Remote control of device.

Because cell phones play a very important role in our lives today, everyone and everything depends on them. It is inevitable that employees store sensitive information on the company-issued cell phone. But, in incidences where one loses the cell phone or theft, there may be a risk of leaking classified information. Some information stored on the cell phone like photos, videos, recorded messages, or documents, may damage the reputation of the company. In such cases, the monitoring app installed on the cell phone allows the employer to remotely lock the device, track its location, and even wipe off all data in extreme cases.

Of course, once businesses solve these 5 problems, they can boost productivity and mitigate losses. In addition to using tracking apps, employers can use other tools to save money and cost of business.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

        Advertising

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
