Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Crossover for Work's Worksmart app is a required application for those working within the Crossover organizational structure of remote employees. The Worksmart tool is a little black/green app that sits on a desktop and captures user behavior on a computer, which includes: screenshots of the desktop, photos of the person sitting at the computer, the name of the apps being used, the number of mouse clicks, and the number of keystrokes. This information is then relayed to a backend where managers and Crossover's own productivity team reviews time cards (set in 10 minute increments) to give insights if the remote employee is doing work or slacking off. Idle activity is treated as idle and is not paid for. Websites/apps can be categorized, and productivity scores are uploaded and reviewed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It made me optimize my time, as I knew that I needed to be focused entirely on the task. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Just about everything else. It is an intensely intrusive application, and does not recognize remote workers for who they are: humans. In fact, if you go to any in-office work environment, you do not spend 8 hours sitting and only doing "productive" work. You go to the bathroom. You mingle with peers. You take breaks--within that 8 hour period! You do things that humans do. Crossover's Worksmart tool literally encourages slave labor. If that is the culture you are looking to foster, use it. If you want to encourage your employees to be creative and awesome participants of a team and want to build trust, then do something else. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Don't. Please don't. Your employees deserve better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Crossover for Work was not optional for me, so I cannot say I was "solving any problems." It solved a problem defined by upper executive leadership, which was an issue of: "want to harness a remote workforce, but we don't trust them to work at home at their desks, so we need to spy on them for every little thing they do."

The benefits they'll realize are great. They get workers who are greatly unhappy with their work life balance because there isn't any.

But as an end user (and yet, still a manager of a team), god, I'm so glad I've been out of that hellhole. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love the transparency of working w/Crossover - From an employees perspective you have transparency into your work and hours. Want to know how to be better at your job? See what you spend most of your time on? Crossover analytics can help take you to the next level. From an employers perspective - nothing is harder than trying to find good talented sales reps. Crossover screens candidates who go through a very rigorous vetting process - & they manage the HR side of not only finding your talent but managing your talent as well.

This frees you and your executive team up to take your business to the next level. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing negative as of yet. Very responsive team. If I need to recommend something It would be to be something along the lines of helping your candidates manage multiple offers. This part can be a bit confusing in the beginning. I'd also like to see each of the reps faces in the "team" room sitting on the computers. :) Help to personalize the experience a bit more.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Try it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

HR - Time to fill , time to productivity, saving money on recruiter and job boards. Time and efficiency. Also, management of payroll and day to day operations of the "little" things that add up i.e. hours worked, overtime etc.

Individual - This part of HR is separated from day to day business so you're able to get your questions answered quickly and efficiently w/out all the internal red tape Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
