On one hand, interruptions are the well-known enemy of productivity. But at the same time, how are managers supposed to know what their employees are up to if they don’t stop by and ask? Peak is a web-based application that removes shoulder taps and check-in emails from the workplace. As a result, teams of all sizes are able to work more efficiently and productively.
Peak is a productivity platform that’s fully automated. The web-based application keeps track of what users are working on automatically, without requiring workers to manually check-in or input their data. Just connect Peak to the services or apps your company already uses—Peak integrates with popular tools like GitHub, Basecamp, Dropbox, Gmail, and Google Drive, among others—and wait for the reports to start flowing in. Peak provides you with all different types of employee insights. For example, you can see which specific hours your employees prefer to work, which days of the week tend to be the most productive in your office, and which specific staffers are too overloaded with work on any given day.
Click on any employee’s image to get a complete breakdown of that person’s activity level. You can see the average amount active work time per day for any member of your team, even going so far as to find out how many emails each person has sent and received during a given period of time. Not only do these factoids give you the type of insight that can help when distributing work, but they can also serve as a source of guidance when making future employment decisions.
