PeopleProvision is a simple-to-deploy, intuitive role-based Microsoft Active Directory account provisioning solution that allows you to delegate user account creation without giving out the keys to the kingdom. Authorized users can fill in as few as one field on a form (but typically 5-8) to create a fully-populated Active Directory user account along with an optional Exchange mailbox, Google Apps/Gmail account, and/or Office 365 account and home share directory. Provisioning forms are completely configurable with the inputs from it and your provisioning rules transformable and loadable into virtually any Active Directory field that you specify.

PeopleProvision empowers your IT Staff to securely delegate user account creation to your help desk, HR personnel, or other groups in your organization without giving these users access to Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC). A simple, intuitive end-user web form makes the account creation process easy and nearly impossible to create a user incorrectly. Administrators have complete control over where the new account is created in active directory, group memberships, as well as home shares, Exchange mailboxes and manager information.

Multiple customizable email notifications can be sent to administrators and/or end-users when provisioning and de-provisioning actions are completed. De-provisioning can optionally remove Google Apps or Office365 and/or Exchange mailboxes or can be set to simply disable users in Active Directory.

A workflow is available so that provision requests have to be approved before users are created.
