Self-Service Password Manager Grant
Manual password reset is a very common problem in many Institutions. The amount of calls that the IT helpdesk receives can skyrocket not just shooting up helpdesk costs but also keeping them waiting for a long time until their passwords are manually reset.
Password Manager is a Self-Service Password Reset tool that lets your end users recover their accounts and passwords without having to call the IT helpdesk. This not only cuts short the time they get access to the portal but, also helps save a lot of helpdesk costs. In addition to it, you could completely get rid of ‘default passwords’ by helping first-time users set up their accounts, passwords and security questions on their own.
The Self-Service Password Manager Grant provides selected institutions an in-kind grant award up to $50,000 over a period of five years. The Grant is intended to cover the cost towards licensing, hosting, professional services, and support costs associated with the implementation of the mobile app.
