Kevin Clemmons, Director of Technologies at Galt Unified School District, has more time and resources now that he has deployed Web Active Directory’s provisioning and user management solutions.
The challenges Galt Union School District faced were:
IT Was Manually Provisioning and Updating Active Directory Accounts
The IT department was manually provisioning and updating Active Directory accounts for students and staff.
No Online Directory for Active Directory Profiles
There was no online directory for Active Directory profiles leading to difficulties in people identifying others and being able to contact them.
Limited IT Resources
IT resources were limited creating a need to automate the management of Active Directory. Limited resources meant strain on existing employees and potentially slower service.
Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform Solution
After implementing Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform, Galt Union School District was able to develop a more efficient process because:
Less IT Resources were Required, Errors were Eliminated
Provisioning of employees and updating of employee profiles required less IT resources and virtually eliminated human error with PeoplePlatform.
Students and Faculty Can Serve Themselves
Students and faculty can now search for peers and update their own information in Active Directory.
IT Got Time Back
The automation of managing Active Directory returned precious hours to IT to focus on other critical projects.
PeoplePlatform allowed us to create hundreds of Active Directory accounts in minutes.

After a year of using Web Active Directory, Galt Union School District concluded:
Automation Led to Return on Investment
By automating the provisioning and updating of Active Directory, IT was able to save over 80 hours a year in provisioning accounts.
IT Saved Time
The IT group saves over three hours weekly by reducing IT and staff resources with daily updates and web-based searching of users.
IT Can Focus on Other Things
Automating Active Directory management, IT can now focus on more IT-related functions rather than data entry.
In PeoplePlatform, Galt Union School District now has a provisioning and updating solution that reduces IT involvement to dedicate time and resources to other critical issues in the district. As a result, human error is reduced; online contacts are accessible to students and staff providing a more pleasurable work environment for IT and faculty.
