New Unipass control centre launches

Origo had launched an online Unipass control centre tool to allow Unipass-enabled firms to improve their user population.

The application was tested with 14 user firms. Participants in the pilot found that the system would save time by reducing calls to staff and helpdesks.

The control centre will also be used to reissue any lost or compromised certificates, for approving/rejecting/changing applications and to make changes to an organisation’s identity details.

Prudential spokesman Brian Moffat says: “It is very easy to use and allows firms to manage their staff’s online access rights in one place, which is very useful.”

Origo managing director Paul Pettitt says: “We are always looking to make life easier for people in the industry and improve on services as newer and more up-to-date applications become available. Some firms have hundreds of Unipass users and it should now be even simpler to manage them more effectively than could ever be possible with clunky old password systems. The new control centre gives them a one stop shop for managing their user identities and saves them time.”
