Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
Abbeton, a leader in helping companies grow their business through implementation of technology and marketing, announces its latest venture, Fenmar NetCheck.
The Fenmar NetCheck software is designed to aid small and medium sized companies in increasing productivity by reducing the amount of unwarranted and unapproved time employees spend browsing the web. Company managers can set customized "web boundaries" or time limits for internet use for each employee and track the amount of time they currently spend browsing the web.
An article on emarketer.com reported on the results of a survey conducted by Vault.com. According to the survey, 25% of employees use the Internet for personal use during office hours for at least ten minutes each day. That means that at the end of a five day work week, a quarter of the working population will have spent nearly an hour of company time for themselves, not at their job. The survey also discovered that 13% of workers use the internet for personal use a minimum of two hours per day while on the clock, which, in most cases, equals an entire quarter of the work day.
"When you look at the math, companies are spending millions of dollars per year on lost productivity because employees spend time checking personal email, browsing ebay or other online shops, and watching movie clips on You Tube. The reality is that employers are paying for this time of lost productivity. I understand it's nice to do some of those things throughout the day to relieve stress or break up the monotony, so Fenmar is simply a balance between the two --boss and employee-- and it doesn't involve or violate any privacy issues," explained Chris Abbott, the developer of Fenmar and president of Abbeton. "It simply allows the boss to have some control over time being wasted on the internet, and, at the same time, it gives an employee a set amount of time, say 10-20 minutes a day, of freedom to browse the web without the stress of getting caught or the worry that they are spending too much time."
Test marketing produced effective results, with employees feeling more satisfied in their current roles and accomplishments now that they are focused on work and not sidetracked by the web.
"Most companies have rules regarding personal time on the web, but rules don't actually stop the employee from browsing the web. Fenmar works," stated local Sarasota business owner and current Fenmar client Paul Rizzo.
