A New Wind is Blowing

If you follow Tahometer on social media, you’ve probably heard that our previous project roadmap ran into a few more bumps along the way than our team had originally anticipated. Thankfully, however, on this joyful day, we would like to provide you with just a bit more crucial information concerning our project’s exciting new direction!

Rebooting in 3, 2, 1…

The first step in this process will be to completely overhaul our system in order to assess what no longer serves our users. In this way, we can remake selected parts of our product using more modern and secure technologies, while prioritizing key features and leaving out any functionality that is rarely — if ever — used.

At the moment, we are pleased to inform you that we’ve already made substantial changes to both the English and Russian versions of our Help section. In addition, with an eye on your privacy, we have turned on HTTPS by default, so now our users will be able to benefit from a lot more secure data transmissions.

Real-time protocol

Our engineers have also been busy revising and rebuilding our servers from the ground up. Consequently, beyond introducing a new real-time protocol which will serve to keep your app and Statistics page in sync, our client application will also be given a faster and safer communication protocol.

Coming up!

Still to come, however, are planned updates to the Summary, Activity and Reports sections of our Statistics page. As per your recommendations, for instance, in our new Activity tab, we have already done away with nonessential information pertaining to mouse clicks and keyboard activity, and instead now feature the straightforward “idle time.”

As a result, it is now easier than ever to find out how long your employees have been online (whether active or idle), as you can see from the screenshot below:

Last but not least, we believe our desktop agent itself is just about due a sparkling, fresh paint job, so get psyched for a brand new design!

Adjust our sails

As we prepare to begin this journey, above all, we are eager to hear your highly valued suggestions. So please send us your questions, comments and concerns regarding any or all of these changes in the comment section below, or if you’d prefer, by contacting info@tahometer.com.

Until we meet again (we promise it won’t be long this time),
