5 Ways to Boost Productivity by Transforming Workforce Identity

Workforce identity security speeds up your business and helps you get more work done. Until you get it right, your digital transformation is at a standstill. 

 

Here’s how workforce identity security helps you champion digital transformation by driving efficiencies and productivity across your business.

Waste less time on passwords

On average, employees spend 10.93 hours per year entering/resetting passwords1. Multiply that by each employee and their wages, and you could be looking at MILLIONS of dollars of lost productivity. Federated single sign-on (SSO) and self-service password reset gives employees back all those hours for value-added work.


Put digital business resources at workers' fingertips

There’s a streamlined app for just about every business task. But employees may struggle to find all these tools—or just forget to use them. They may also find them difficult to access, since some are on-prem and some are in the cloud. With a dock for SSO to all digital resources in one place, employees can easily find, access and use apps to get more work done from anywhere.


Put IT and business users on the same page

When application admins consume IT services, it can mean tons of time wasted communicating requests and clarifications. Delegated administration and a central operating portal for identity and access management (IAM) can empower your admins with self-service application onboarding and management, so nobody wastes time on back-and-forth IAM service requests.


Stop supporting multiple legacy identity tools

You’ve got a fragile patchwork of siloed IAM systems that all require IT attention, and it’s a nightmare to manage. Many systems lack support and are nearing end-of-life, so it’s time to rationalize. You need to establish a single source of truth—a workforce authentication authority that does it all with less maintenance, so IT can stop pouring hours into support for legacy tools.


Leverage out-of-the-box integrations and configuration

Why does IT waste time customizing legacy IAM tools anyway? Customizations make upgrades virtually impossible, and identity standards and protocols make them unnecessary for modern solutions. Adopting an identity platform that already works with any app, any cloud and any directory out-of-the-box lets IT spend their time on high-value projects instead.
