Handdy is a division of Integra Global Solutions Corp, a technology and business consulting firm with a strong 1600+ member team headquartered in Pittsburgh, USA with branch offices in the UK, India, and the Philippines. Integra Global Solutions was founded in the year 2004 and has grown organically from a small 4-member team to a large corporate with people working across multiple locations and nations.
Why Handdy was built?
As Integra grew from being a small team in a small office to a large team in multiple offices, we needed a system to instill the discipline of time management to all our staff, monitor employee activity during the work hours, and consistently achieve higher productivity.
We wanted a system to monitor employee productivity of all types of employees including in-house staff, remote staff, work from home employees, part-time staff and even freelancers. We also wanted a central management dashboard of all our employee activities from different teams/departments/offices.
We initially tried using several employee monitoring software already available in the market. After elaborately trying them out we realized that none of them could deliver a complete solution that we were looking for. They were either too clunky, too elaborate, or too expensive. So, we had no choice but to build one for ourselves.
What was the brief
when we set about
Our Handdy software team were given a clear 7-point brief to build an employee monitoring and productivity software that acts as a one solution to monitor and track employee time, productivity and computer activity and yet remain non-intrusive. Our team did a fabulous job in bringing this to reality.
- Simple to use (and easy to adapt)
- Cover all employee scenarios (Work from home, Office, Remote)
- Work with all popular operating systems (Windows, iOS, and Linux)
- Addresses insider threats (and protects client data)
- Understands the sensitivity of its users (employees)
- Expandable (ability to introduce new modules when needed)
- Include all core features (plus possibility of adding more whenever needed)
Handdy Internal Introduction
We introduced Handdy employee monitoring and productivity software internally in 2012 and we are using it ever since. Simply put, we loved it from day one. From accurate employee monitoring, client reporting to admin/payroll to productivity management - we saw in real time how Handdy helped us overcome crucial challenges in day-to-day business operations.
We continued to use it for several years without ever realizing that so many companies like ours were searching for one such tool for themselves. In March 2020, when Covid-19 stuck the world and when every company moved to work from home scenario, some of our clients enquired about building one such tool without realizing that we already had one and were using it and continuously fine tuning it to adopt new situations like Covid-19.
When we gave Handdy to our clients for their usage in their offices, they loved Handdy software just the way we did it. Some of them were upset that we were just keeping such wonderful tool to ourselves for so long. That is when we realized that businesses around the world needed one such employee monitoring software, that addresses the real time business problems and is simple to use.
Handdy Market Launch
When we decided to launch Handdy to the market, our aim was to make Handdy “Affordable for every type of company”. We did not want the price to be a deterrent for smaller companies. Our aim is for everyone to share and enjoy the fruits of our hard work.
We also wanted to introduce the modular approach so that the companies that needed additional features can add on the modules rather than getting everyone to pay for the features that they may never use.
Our core principle is
"Good people making a positive difference to businesses worldwide"
To stay true to our founding principle, our underlying philosophy is to serve our clients through
- One software application that does it all: time tracking, employee monitoring and productivity analytics
- Features capable of addressing present day workplace challenges
- A comprehensive solution to simplify day to day business operations
- Seamless technology improvements
- Options to customize as per clients demands
- 100% data confidentiality and security
