Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

It's Friday afternoon. The sun is shining. And everyone is down the boozer when they should be at their desks getting through all that ugly paperwork before the 5pm bell sounds.

Apparently, Employersafe reckons all this job-dodging-Facebook-playing-pink-shirt-wearing-just-one-more-it's-Friday-afternoon malarkey is costing UK businesses £50m a year.

We would tell you a lot, lot, lot more about the dip in productivity at desks around this little grey island of ours. But hey, about now you're just trying on those beer goggles for size and who are we to stand in the way of all that weekend bump 'n' grind.

Besides, it's Friday and we really can't be bothered....zzzzz.

Oh, all right then, if you really wanna know more about software that can discipline slackers, go here. ®
