The Addition of Microsoft Active Directory to Asset Panda Centralizes User Database Storage
As part of Asset Panda’s commitment to its users to remain the most robust, user-friendly mobile asset tracking system on the market, it continues to add features that streamline and simplify the overall process of tracking and managing assets. One of those areas is in the different integrations it brings to users. From employee management to increase efficiency in workflows, to simplifying the internal ticketing or help desk system, there are a variety of integrations available to work with your specific company. One such program is Microsoft Active Directory.
Microsoft Active Directory serves as a central location for a company’s network administration and security. Asset Panda accepts employee data saved in Active Directory in a seamless manner and data can be registered directly in the designated fields using the integration tool. The data collected through Active Directory and passed through Asset Panda can then be compared to the data already stored in Asset Panda in real time and updated as necessary.
Microsoft Active Directory is used as a source of information on data that can be pushed right into Asset Panda such as:
- Users/groups of users and their roles
It can provide useful information about an employee’s actions such as if they check in/check out an asset, updates to contact information or changes in permissions/user groups he/she is to have.
Asset Panda leverages Active Directory by allowing the customer to create user accounts and have employee lists for reference purposes so that there is no need to double manage user accounts. Used in conjunction with Asset Panda, clients can implement employee management from Active Directory into one seamless program, significantly cutting administrative costs related to the operation of both systems.
Active Directory greatly improves an organization’s security and gives customers an ability to streamline and manage data continuously pushed into Asset Panda’s suite of services. It can keep track of employees who are currently employed by the company. When an employee is let go or no longer with the company, it can deactivate immediately and that employee no longer has access to files within the company – and there is no disruption of service. Active Directory pushes the data right through to Asset Panda. There is no need to import or edit data.
Asset Panda’s asset tracking and management platform is the most flexible and customizable system in the industry for tracking and managing assets. Powered by free Android and iPhone/iPad apps that sync with the cloud, Asset Panda’s asset tracking and management platform feature an intuitive interface and completely customizable features that enable employees to work from anywhere, on devices employees are already using. That means they have quick and easy on-demand access to everything they need to know about their company’s assets.
Asset Panda optimizes and streamlines everything from auditing to facilities management, equipment support ticketing, compliance, and purchase order management. Unlike other systems, Asset Panda is highly configurable, so it can become whatever companies need it to be, and adjusts as their needs change.
