Cashmere Valley Bank tackles automation and reporting using ADManager Plus.

Cashmere Valley

About the Organization

Cashmere Valley Bank was founded by two brothers: Hy W. Rieke and H.H. Rieke, on September 24, 1932. Due to the lack of a bank in the area following the failure of two banks at the start of the Great Depression, Cashmere was chosen as the location for the new bank.

Besides the traditional banking services, it offers services like:

  • Investment Services through Cashmere Valley Wealth Management
  • Insurance Services through our Mitchell, Reed & Schmitten Insurance
  • Mortgage Services through Cashmere Valley Mortgage
  • Equipment Lease Financing
  • Auto and Marine Dealer Financing

To better serve the people of Wenatchee, Leavenworth, and East Wenatchee, Cashmere Valley Bank opened 5 new branches between the middle of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1990s. In addition to offices in Bellevue and Chelan, Cashmere Valley Bank now has branches in Ellensburg, Cle Elum, Chelan, and Yakima.

Business challenges

  • CVB's HRMS solution entirely depended on manual process maintained in word document.
  • No delegation system in place to maintain resources and privileges.
  • No auditing mechanism for User logon, Inactive users / computers, Group membership (nested group memberships), about-to-expire passwords and File Folder Share permissions.

The Problem

Cashmere Valley Bank is a 500-user environment centrally governed by 13 Domain Controllers linked (DC) with one single domain running in a physical server. All the Human Resources Management Software (HRMS) solution depended entirely on manual entries maintained via word document. This increased their entire throughput time drastically, which reflected as poor efficiency in managing Human Resources. Some of the processes that were affected are user creation and user change management.

Regarding the maintenance of resources contained in their Active Directory and the associated privileges, they did not have any particular structured delegation process. This had a cascading effect on the manual, time-consuming process of auditing.

The Solution

After having deployed AD Manager Plus in their premises, the management, reporting and auditing of Active Directory objects reportedly became extremely easy and simple. The manual Word-doc based traditional HR Management became simpler and automated using bulk user creation, provisioning and modification feature of AD Manager Plus. To make things run smoother in the future, certain process like provisioning and de-provisioning, reporting on security and compliance, auditing on activities like user logon, inactive users / computers, group membership (nested group memberships), about-to-expire passwords, File Folder Share permissions were automated using few clicks of a button. Also, the delegation tool of AD Manager Plus helped structure the user privileges in their Active Directory much better.

    (In a nutshell,

  • AD bulk user creation and modificatio
  • Automated provisioning and de-provisionin
  • Automated reporting on security and complianc
  • Seamless auditing on User logon, inactive users / computers, group membership (nested group memberships), about-to-expire passwords, File Folder Share permission
  • Customized delegation privileges for Admin, helpdesk and HR)
