Rod Weir - PRD Software managing director commented, "PRD Software evaluated many password-reset solutions in our search for a solution that we would recommend to our world-wide clients, and integrate into HelpMaster. After seeing the Specops solution demonstrated we were immediately impressed by its
functionality, design and architecture. Its integration into the Windows group policy sets it apart from other solutions that require a dedicated database installation and complex configuration. Specops password reset is a smart solution, from a smart company. It looks great, is easy to administer and it integrates very well with PRD HelpMaster."
