Pullman School District Implements Tools4ever’s UMRA to Allow IT to Efficiently Provision Student and Staff Accounts from Skyward
UMRA allows the district to automate their account management, thus eliminating the need for tedious manual processes.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management solutions, is pleased to announce that Pullman School District has implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA). Pullman School District is located in Washington State and consists of three elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school. The district implemented UMRA to automate their account management and drastically reduce the amount of time the IT department spends on provisioning accounts.
Previously, the IT staff would spend upwards of 10 to 15 minutes provisioning accounts for each staff member and student, which was extremely inefficient. In addition, the district didn’t have guidelines for provisioning user accounts, naming them, or cleaning them up. UMRA allows IT to enter all staff and student accounts into the Skyward information system which are then automatically provisioned in Active Directory, Google Apps, and Microsoft Exchange. UMRA also automates other processes, such as creating groups in Active Directory based on current classes in the district, and assigning membership to the correct groups for students and staff based upon their enrollment.
Jacob Bergman, Systems Administrator at Pullman School District said, “I could spend entire days’ worth of time provisioning accounts whereas now it’s done by UMRA in seconds. Overall, UMRA allows us to not focus on worrying about accounts. I can spend more time on important duties that actually require my time, rather than mundane tasks that UMRA now automates.”
