Six Remote Monitoring Software Options You’ll Find Useful

It’s been almost two years(!) since the covid-19 pandemic happened and with it, the ensuing lockdowns. While some businesses had to close, many organisations are fortunately still surviving – even thriving – thanks to technology, social media, and the remote workforce.

Having remote workers on your team certainly helps. Distributed teams get things done, even with minimal supervision. Just imagine how much more time you can spend expanding your business when you don’t have to spend as much babysitting your team, right?

However, not everybody’s so eager to embrace remote working. Much of it remains a mystery to them. For example, how do you monitor your employees? When is the best time to check on them?

If you’ve been asking the same questions, you’ve come to the right place.

What is Remote Monitoring Software?

What is Remote Monitoring Software_ Also known as network management, Remote Monitoring Software (RMS) is an application that supervises (and sometimes automates) different remote functions in your company.

Aside from monitoring, an RMS also allows you to automate task scheduling and detect and create instant alerts for specific issues (e.g., trackers going offline, remote workers neglecting to log in, etc). Furthermore, it can also enhance your credibility with your stakeholders, track activities, and even create timely health checks across all your company’s devices.

Most importantly, remote monitoring software addresses that same concern that anyone reluctant to hire remotely has: ensuring that your remote employees are working (or at the very least, logged in when they’re supposed to).
