Scry tells you where your colleagues are, without you having to leave your desk and its IP connectivity over the LAN ensures you know the status of home workers or users in remote offices too. Select from a list of predefined statuses including ‘Available‘, ‘Away from desk‘ or ‘In a meeting‘ or create your own specific to your organization. Scry even detects when your screen saver is active or your workstation is idle or locked and updates your status accordingly!

Scry sits in the system tray and changing the status message takes only a second or two. Users can even leave comments such as their expected return time using a system tray pop-up menu.

Scry’s full instant messaging facility to allows users to communicate efficiently with each other making it easy for employees to send each other text messages. If it’s important to know when another user has returned to their computer, you can track their status activity and receive notification of when it has changed. Scry can even detect when a work station is idle or locked, and create a change notification.

The network administrator can easily install Scry on a network drive, and users can complete their own initial log-on quickly and easily. Because Scry operates at the user-name level rather than at the computer-name level, multiple users sharing a single PC can use Scry. Scry supports both Windows User authentication and its own inbuilt Scry user authentication.

Reporting is provided in the form of exportable CSV logs for messaging, statuses and general performance logging.
