How It Works

Every day, Userful Desktops upload their usage log data to the secure central reporting system in Userful Manager. When the reporting system receives an upload from a computer it interprets it and places the data into a database. The Usage Report interface lets administrators select the computers, locations and time period they want included in the report. It then gives overview data and allows the administrator to drill down to specialized reports for more detailed analysis. You can also download the raw usage data or view your environmental savings.
