Setting up new hires is a pain. Every new user takes hours to set up correctly and have running productively. They need a new computer, a new user name, a new email address and access to the files and applications required to perform their job. Then they need to be trained and educated on the organization’s IT systems management policies and procedures. And everything needs to happen quickly so they can get to work right away. Not only is this a major time drain, but information about access rights needs to come from the hiring manager and HR… this information is essential, but not necessarily obtainable in a timely manner.
You probably keep asking yourself how can you streamline the process? Through the use of a centrally-managed user profile configuration IT systems management tool. By using an IT automation platform that enables you to pre-configure user profiles for new employees, you effectively eliminate all the problems listed above.
Through scripting technology, you can build user profiles (e.g. Accountant Level 1, Engineer Level 3, etc.) and automatically apply them to new users, making sure they have immediate access to the tools and information they need, and to the appropriate tutorials to learn how to use them.
No more hunching over a workstation entering a laundry list of IT systems management applications and security clearances that needs to be configured while the new user hovers over your shoulder. You can apply the appropriate profile remotely with the push of a button, from the comfort of your own desktop. By having pre-configured user profiles, you also significantly reduce the human errors that occur when manually keying in all the necessary information.
