WebWatcher Instant Message Recorder to Monitor Employees
WebWatcher's advanced employee monitoring software can automatically monitor instant messages sent and received on company computers so you can view them anytime you choose.

Use of Instant Messages for day-to-day business communication is increasing between employees and customers alike. Unfortunately, too often Instant Messaging opens up your organization to a host of dangers ranging from wasted time chatting with friends, to a means of misrepresenting your company and its policies.

Unlike email, Instant Messages (IMs/"chats") are seldom saved. And even if they are, they're only stored on that user's computer where they're easily deleted.

That's where WebWatcher comes in.

The WebWatcher Email Recorder records the date, start time, end time, participants, and the entire contents of chats and instant message conversations that take place on employee computers with just one click in WebWatcher's IM/CHAT tab.

With WebWatcher You Can:
  • Monitor AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
  • Monitor MSN Messenger
  • Monitor Yahoo Messenger
  • Windows Messenger
  • & more!

WebWatcher keeps an entirely separate hidden log recording IMs and chats. This means in addition to making sure employees are not misusing IM for personal communication with friends, WebWatcher's Instant Message monitor can be a valuable record keeper for your business.

You can access recorded IM conversations any time and even use our unique Alert Words to automatically bring important conversations to your attention. For example, you can tell WebWatcher to be on the lookout for important words such as "steal" or "drugs."

WebWatcher can then automatically take Screenshots of any IM containing "steal" so that you can see everything as it actually appeared on your employee's computer screen when the IM conversation occurred. With our web based viewing system, you'll know about Instant Message conversations practically as they're happening so that you can address situations before there's a problem.

WebWatcher works with all popular chat and instant messaging services and records both sides of all conversations - whether or not your employee even types a single word. If your employees use AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), MSN Messenger, or Yahoo Messenger - WebWatcher is the most reliable way to record IMs.

In addition, by keeping a record of all communications you can ensure that your organization has the foundation with which to meet federal and state monitoring guidelines.
