North Hunterdon-Voorhees Implements Tools4ever’s UMRA to Eliminate the IT Department’s Need to Deal with User Accounts on a Daily Basis
Tools4ever’s User Management Resource Administrator’s (UMRA) automation process fulfills North Hunterdon-Voorhees’s need to reduce the IT department’s time dealing with account issues by managing and validating information before it gets into their systems. UMRA has also improved security for students being granted access to the internet.
Lynbrook, New York (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management solutions, is pleased to announce that North Hunterdon- Voorhees Region High School District has recently implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA). The district, which consists of two schools- North Hunterdon and Voorhees High School, has a roster of approximately 3,000 students. This large number of students in the schools’ systems required hours of work from the IT department to provision and de-provision accounts manually every year. North Hunterdon-Voorhees implemented Tools4ever’s UMRA to automate the management of user accounts.
They first implemented UMRA Mass, which provided such a positive experience, they decided to upgrade to UMRA Automation. Automation utilizes a scheduled project to scan the Student Information System for changes and processes the differences to Active Directory. The upgrade allowed them to make changes in one system that resulted in changes to the student’s account in all systems. The school needed the software to be implemented quickly, before the school year commenced, and Tools4ever was able to deliver. Patrick Butler, Network Server Administrator for North Hunterdon-Voorhees said, “Tools4ever’s implementation and planning was top notch. They made sure that we were 100 percent functional by the time promised to us and resolved every question that we had.”
Now, with UMRA Automation in place, the school has dramatically increased efficiency. The IT staff no longer needs to deal with account issues, and what previously was a difficult problem – relocating a student from one school to the other. Now registrars are able to handle any changes that need to be made in one system, which automatically makes the change in all systems. Security, as well, has improved for the school. North Hunterdon-Voorhees has a rule that parents must sign a permission slip to give their child internet access. What used to be a long process is now done simply by the registrars, by just checking a box on the student’s profile.
