    Below, check out the three main savings points that organizations can achieve by adopting automated access management systems:

    1. Increased team productivity

    With the ease of opening support calls, receiving responses in a short time and using the company’s systems remotely to have quick access to the tools they need to work from day one, employees can have autonomy and eliminate time-consuming tasks from their routine. In addition, they do not depend on the managers’ or IT staff’ availability to carry out activities such as resetting passwords or having access to an internal portal, for example.

    2. Reduced IT and HR costs

    Reduced IT and HR costs

    From hiring to the dismissal of employees, IT and HR teams can work in an integrated manner to create the employee corporate identity and provide the required access to their jobs. In a manual system, both areas need to wait for the completion of processes which can take days or hours, in order to continue with the next actions. In integrated and automated systems, these tasks can be completed in hours or minutes. In addition, they release IT and HR professionals from low-value-added tasks to focus on more strategic activities for the company.

    3. Lower compliance risks and ease for audits

    Traceability and data integration are some of the benefits provided of systems like Cap2AM. Besides assuring compliance, these systems save staff time and money when compiling records for internal and external audits and can avoid errors that occur more often in manual systems. Consequently, they contribute to increased operation reliability and organizational results.

    In a hypothetical scenario of sensitive data leakage, the company has to be agile to response and act in order to mitigate administrative issues and legal risks due to potential GDPR sanctions resulting in infraction or fine. What are your company’s systems? On which systems do you store sensitive data? Who has access to these systems? Who approves access to these systems or other functionalities? Are there any exceptions to role creep? Companies using Cap2AM has answered all these questions.

    Cap2AM is an IG&A (Identity Governance and Administration) solution that establishes an integrated and effective task flow among the main corporate systems and resources, allowing organizations to have a comprehensive synergy among governance, usability, integration and auditing.
