Lepide Active Directory Self Service (LADSS) is a web-based Active Directory self-service solution, which allows end users to reset password, unlock account and update personal information in the Windows Active Directory. Alternatively, domain users can also authorize co-workers to perform these tasks in their absence; thus, completely eliminating the need to call or raise IT tickets to system administrators or help desk personnel for password/account management tasks.
LADSS helps to save valuable time and resources and instill power in the hands of end users but under the supervision of the administrator. Using LADSS, administrators can configure policies and automate self-service password reset whilst managing his tight schedule. Reports, schedules, password expiry notifications and bulk enrollment features further aid administrators to eventually increase the organization's ROI drastically.

Owing to its rich set of configuration abilities, Active directory password reset software is easy to install and implement within Windows based networks. The free trial version of Lepide Active Directory self-service is fully featured i.e., it works similar to the licensed version. However, the only limiting factor is that the free version supports maximum 50 end-users; which means up to 50 enrolled users can perform self-password reset, self-account unlock, and self-information update without incurring any cost to the organization. For enrolling more than 50 users, purchase license through custom quote.
