Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IdM/IAM) solutions, announced today that Waller Independent School District has implemented User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA). IT staff at the district had been manually managing accounts for more than 6,900 students and 900 staff members, which was an extremely time-consuming process that lead to a large amount of pollution on the network. The district decided they needed a way to automate most of their basic account management functions so that the IT department didn’t need to spend days creating, changing, and disabling accounts, while also setting a standard for naming accounts.

UMRA allows the district to easily add students to their Skyward student information system and the new accounts are automatically created in Active Directory. This process follows the guidelines defined by the district to correctly set access privileges, place the account in the correct campus container and group. Waller ISD also customized their process so that each time a student is created or modified by UMRA, an email is sent to the appropriate person.

Rosa Ojeda, Technology Director, at Waller Independent School District commented, “With UMRA in place the district no longer needs to worry about spending time adding, changing and removing student and staff accounts anymore. Tools4ever has been great to work with. They are always onboard to help us with problems, concerns, changes or situations. I don’t really see Tools4ever as a standard vendor, but more as a partner.”
