User permissions can be managed effortlessly. All accounts are created automatically from the data in SIMS, with a simple set-up of permissions for both new and existing users ensuring correct access levels across different systems. Local Active Directory accounts and cloud services are automatically provisioned and you can add multiple users in a single click saving valuable time and resources. Users also have the ability to manage and reset their own passwords, saving valuable time for your technical staff.
Centralisation of user administration adds critical control over access to systems where sensitive information is involved. SIMS ID provides clear audit trails to assist you in maintaining the security of your systems and data. Should you need to revoke a user’s permissions - for example, when a member of staff leaves - you can do this easily across all services in one go.
