The Technology behind the product

Note: This is technical information designed for reading by IT personnel. 

The Wellnomics Risk Management System Architecture

Wellnomics Risk Management uses a client/server architecture, consisting of:

  • Wellnomics WorkPace client - Recorder + Breaks & Exercises
  • Wellnomics web server, running IIS and Microsoft SQL Server


Wellnomics WorkPace Client (Recorder + Breaks & Exercises)

The Wellnomics Recorder, which is part of WorkPace, runs in the background on each office worker’s computer to record statistics on their computer use. This information is used to build a risk profile of each employee’s workload. The data is logged daily to the Wellnomics web server where it is stored in an SQL database.

Wellnomics Breaks & Exercises (WorkPace) also reminds office workers to take regular breaks and exercises and provides them feedback on their workload and break compliance.

Client desktop requirements

Below are the requirements to run the Wellnomics WorkPace client on the desktop.

Disk space: 120MB
CPU: 1% in background (on 1GHz+ CPU)
Memory Usage: 10MB (console minimized)

Why can’t Wellnomics Recorder and Breaks & Exercises run on the server?

In order to monitor everyone’s mouse and keyboard activity Wellnomics Recorder and Wellnomics Breaks & Exercises needs to run directly on each employee’s desktop.

Wellnomics Web Server

The Wellnomics web server stores all assessment data. A web-based interface called the Wellnomics Portal allows employees to login and complete their assessments and view their reports. Authorised managers can log in and view management reports on their staff, or the whole organisation. All that is needed to access the Wellnomics Portal is an Internet browser.

Organisational Structure HR Data Import

Wellnomics can facilitate reports in accordance with your organisational structure simply by importing the required data from your organisation’s HR database. This data can be updated at regular intervals using a comma separated values (CSV) file format exported from your HR database. Note that only basic HR data is needed, such as name, email address, department, location, and supervisor.
