When we select a Employee Monitor product, not focused on how many features the product has, or how much of the price, the more important are:
1. Stability of the product: more computers are installed, higher program stability will be required. Due to different numbers of monitoring computers and network environment, there is not the most stable product, so you need to try several products to find the most proper one for your own case.
2. Acceptance of employees: No one is not willing to be monitored, so too much features sometimes would bring negative effects. And Refog Employee Monitor does not provide any Remote Controls features, but it is one of the best-seller.
Note: We recommend you inform employees and sign an agreement before using this kind of software to monitor your employees, for this will maximize avoid legal risks.
