We're a small business office using CurrentWare's BrowseControl and BrowseReporter.

Our employees were wasting their time on the Internet when the manager was not supervising them. In order to keep them under control, we installed CurrentWare's BrowseReporter to monitor websites that they've been visiting.

After we discovered the websites that were unproductive and not work related, we blocked them using BrowseControl.

I installed this on 5 of my offices. Quick setup and easy to configure. We love everything about it so far.

It is a good alternative versus other software with same functions but quite expensive

According to AlternativeTo, BrowseControl runs on Windows but not macOS. Can anyone recommend a similar app for macOS?
