Tom Pisani, Director of Technology at Branford Public Schools in Branford Connecticut, now provisions student and staff accounts faster and with accurate information since he installed Web Active Directory’s provisioning and user management solutions.
The challenges Branford Public Schools faced were:
Manual Provisioning and Updating
IT was manually provisioning new students and employees as well as updating Active Directory profiles taking up time and incurring an unwarranted cost.
Data Entry Errors
Mistakes made due to manually entering data caused inaccurate content for students and staff.
Limited IT Resources
Inputting data took several hours each day taking away IT resources from more important projects.
Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform Solution
Once Web Active Directory’s PeoplePlatform was implemented, Branford Public Schools developed a more efficient process:
Automation Saves Time
Provisioning and updating student and employee profiles with an automated process reduced the time required to manually input data.
Automation Reduces Errors
Automating the process eliminated errors created by the former manual process.
IT Got Time Back
Automating user account creation gave more time to the IT department to focus on critical projects the district required.
Web Active Directory was professional, customer oriented, and easy to work with.
— Tom Pisani
After deploying Web Active Directory, Branford Public Schools determined that they save an estimated $10,500 annually by reducing the time taken to provision accounts from several hours to under a minute.
They now have a provisioning and updating solution that allows the IT department to properly apply time and resources to other critical issues the district requires. In doing so, the district can achieve accurate data in their Student Information System, reduce cost, and employ the IT team to projects more pertinent to their job function.
