Today’s digital world is characterized by a highly interwoven work and personal life, and increasing frequency of technology interrupts from the always-on smartphone and email and chat pop-ups on our PCs. This demanding environment with a constant buzz of conversations and activity that is irresistible, is leaving us overwhelmed, distracted and exhausted, and wondering – “Where did my day go?”

Sapience Buddy allows you to get back in control. It is a PC – based software application that automatically discovers your daily work patterns and time spent on multiple work activities. Its unique cool Sapience Work YogaTM feature guides users on simple changes to work habits that can have a dramatic impact on both productivity and wellness. Sapience Buddy acts as your virtual assistant, quietly holding up a mirror to your work day, allowing you to set goals for improvement, and encouraging you with daily feedback. Wellness prompts nudge you to take a break in case of too much time at your desk. Users feel a sense of satisfaction from knowing that they put in their best effort.

The Sapience data is “for your eyes only” – it remains absolutely confidential on your PC and is not uploaded to any Server.
