    A Review Of Softerra’s Adaxes AD Automation Software

    "This is truly an amazing product. The attention to detail is astounding. The fact that they even included a nice PowerShell script editor built into the product clearly feels like they aren’t considering PowerShell a competitor like some other automation products but rather a complement to finish off the last mile of automation for their customers.

    If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try."

    Product Review: Softerra Adaxes

    "Once I saw Adaxes in action I realized it would very easily replace many of the native management tools that IT admins use, such as AD Users & Computers, the Exchange Admin Center, and the collection of custom scripts that tend to build up over time. ... Personally, if I was implementing automation for Active Directory and Exchange administration by an IT operations team today, I would seriously consider building it on Adaxes.

    If you’re an AD administrator, I whole-heartedly think you should give Adaxes a try."

What Users Say About Adaxes
The Softerra support has always been great!
Alex Helmreich
Sivantos GmbH
We were looking at Active Directory Provisioning and Self Service. We did some searching and stumbled upon Adaxes via a local company 6 months ago. Now we have automated all account creation along with 365 licensing management. <cut> Just now rolling out the self-service password options and they are awesome too. I wish someone would have told me about this a while back. We were using <cut> at my last place and I wanted to jab a rusty spoon in my eye every time we made any changes on it because it would no sooner lose it's mind before actually running right.
Fantastic experience, very much looking forward to any updates you all put out there!
