When you utilize monitoring remote desktop software, you can be aware of who is logged onto your server and network at all times of the day. This is exemplified by a terminal services log.
There have been a lot of studies as of late that center around whether or not employees are more productive if they are working in their actual office, or at home. Working from home has really started to take off across the United States and the rest of the world thanks to the emergence of remote desktop technologies. With remote desktop capabilities, employees can work from a laptop just about anywhere in the world that they have an internet connection. They are going to be able to log right onto the company network from their laptop that is internet enabled and from there work just as if they were actually in the office. This is a growing trend in business and has shown employees can be just as if not more productive at home than they are in the office. The office can carry with it a lot of distractions including talking with co-workers, attending meetings that may be unnecessary, as well as commuting time. Employees would much rather save the two hours of commuting time on a daily basis and put that effort into their work, providing an added more beneficial work product in the end.
