Conclusion

  • From the above comparison table it can be established that both ADSelfService Plus and Password Express are equally efficient in reducing password related helpdesk tickets through self-service password reset and account unlock.
  • ADSelfService Plus is comparatively more flexible and easy to deploy which works to the advantage of enterprises by enabling easy adoption, security and control at the best value for money.
  • Password Express lacks some essential self-service features like Employee Directory Self-Update, People Search and Mail Group Subscription. Furthermore, this software heavily relies on a number of pre-requisites like .NET for installation and SQL server for reporting.
  • ADSelfService Plus, on the other hand, is a comprehensive IT self-service solution that provides greater value for your business than Password Express.
