User Provisioning

Also known as account provisioning, user provisioning is the process of creating, managing, and maintaining user accounts and profiles. User provisioning can also refer to updating, modifying, or deleting an account or user profile. A company's email system is an example of user provisioning in use; a new email address is created when an employee joins the company and deleted when that employee leaves, thus updating their account/user information.

User provisioning software makes the process easier by managing multiple user accounts within different applications and systems in one place. Because it can be customized, user provisioning software can make managing user accounts more efficient for businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes.
