Similar to Workpuls (check out our Teramind vs. Workpuls review here), Hubstaff is primarily a timesheet management and productivity tracking solution that has some employee monitoring capabilities such as app and URL tracking, screenshots capture, and basic notifications features.

On the other hand, Teramind is a full-fledged employee monitoring solution with robust activity tracking, behavior analytics, risk management, and insider threats prevention capabilities that also comes with time tracking and productivity analysis features. In a sense, Teramind has all of Hubstaff’s features (except for a few such as geo-tracking) plus more.

However, that is not to say Hubstaff is inferior or even competing directly with Teramind. It has its large customer base who are interested in a simple solution that can track employee time and engagement without the extra bells and whistles. Therefore, it is also cheaper.

The table below compares Teramind with Hubstaff side-by-side in terms of key features and capabilities so that you can decide which solution is right for you.

Hubstaff is right for you if…

you have team members who work mostly on a scheduled basis and you want to track their time and expenses accurately. It comes with online timesheets, GPS tracking, payroll processing, scheduling, and basic project management features. While its productivity monitoring features are not as powerful as Teramind’s, Hubstaff still scores some points for its intuitive dashboard and visually catchy reports supplemented by screenshot captures, web and app tracking, idle time tracking, job posting fleet tracking, and few other unique features. However, do not expect them on the Free version. For the product’s full benefits, you will have to get the more expensive ($20/user/month) Enterprise version.

All-in-all, while Hubstaff lacks advanced monitoring and insider threat prevention capabilities, though what it does, it does well. With a wide range of platform supports such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS – it is as ubiquitous as it gets.

Teramind is right for you if…

are in the market for a modern employee monitoring solution that will also fulfill your needs for time tracking, clock-in kiosks, employee scheduling, employee tasks, and expenses tracking, and more. Additionally, it has built-in policy and rules to automate most of these administrative tasks while also offering an ‘active’ productivity optimization capability instead of just generating a report.  By active, we mean, the system can automatically interfere when an employee is doing something unproductive or harmful such as spending their 3rd hour in a row on Youtube. It can block such activities, issue a warning, notify a manager or even execute a script.

Teramind will also provide your organization an active defense from all kinds of malicious or inadvertent insider activities such as theft, fraud, industrial espionage, sabotage, and other threats. You can conduct risk analysis and forensic investigation with video and audio recordings, real-time alerts, immutable logs, and more.
