End User Productivity Reporting for Citrix

Visibility into Citrix Activity

The surge of remote working has increased the demand for visibility into how employees are working while at home and if they have access to the right applications to be productive. Many IT Pros are looking for ways to gain Citrix monitoring activity and insight into overall performance.

Goliath offers End User Productivity Reports that track exactly how many hours an end user was interacting within their Citrix session and how much time they were inactive (i.e. not working). The report can be scheduled to run or executed on-demand and can be emailed, exported (PDF, CSV), or viewed directly within the Goliath interface.
