Software That Knows Your Every Move
It's called Worklenz, and it can be a powerful management tool for tracking projects and people

Designed by privately held information-technology company Métier in Washington, D.C., Worklenz is software designed to help companies manage large projects and maximize efficiency. But unlike an enterprise resource program, which tracks a company's inventory, invoices, and assets, Worklenz tracks workers -- what they do, when they do it, and how long it takes.

In its essence, Worklenz uses an extreme form of micromanagement to help a company make broad decisions. The program syncs with each employee's Microsoft Outlook e-mail account, Microsoft Project scheduling software, and his or her PeopleSoft timesheet, to let a boss see everyone's schedules, what tasks they're working on, and how soon each employee will complete his or her work.

It seems very strange to me that any company would use this software to make major decisions if it is based on information gleaned from outlook and M$ project scheduler as people are constantly finding ways to attack them and hack using them.
