The seamless management of user lifecycles plays a pivotal role in ensuring the efficiency and security of business operations. While user lifecycle management (ULM) tools have proven their worth during user onboarding and offboarding, they often encounter significant hurdles when handling midlife cycle changes.
Managing midlife cycle changes, such as role transitions within your organization, is a multifaceted task that can present challenges for your IT teams. Shifting job profiles often involves granting or revoking access to various applications, which can be error-prone when done manually. These transitions demand meticulous attention to detail, making them a critical phase that can impact productivity, security, and compliance if not managed adeptly.
However, there's a comprehensive solution to address all these difficulties and revolutionize how your organization handles midlife cycle changes efficiently – Zluri.

With Zluri, your IT teams can bid farewell to manual and error-prone access management processes.

Zluri’s Employee App Store(EAS) further accelerates the transition by providing employees with quick and easy access to the applications essential for their specific job roles.
Let’s look at some factors why most ULM tools fail to manage midlife cycle changes.
Let's delve into some of the primary reasons behind the failure of most ULM tools in managing midlife cycle changes:
The complexity of midlife cycle changes in organizations pertains to managing access permissions for employees transitioning to new positions or roles. This involves granting access to different systems, applications, and data as they move to new departments or teams.
Traditionally, this manual process led to time-consuming and error-prone tasks for IT admins. Such delays could pose security risks if access isn't appropriately managed.
Zluri’s automation capabilities streamline access management, ensuring a seamless and secure transition for employees and the organization. Your IT admins can effortlessly handle permissions, providing employees with the necessary resources for their new roles.
By leveraging Zluri's advanced automation, IT teams can significantly reduce manual efforts and minimize human errors. This boosts overall efficiency, saving valuable time and resources for more critical tasks.
Moreover, Zluri ensures data security throughout the process, preventing unauthorized access and data breaches. It safeguards sensitive information, maintaining a robust security framework.
Many ULM tools cannot automate processes, leading to manual work and delays in giving employees access to the resources they need for their new roles. These delays are worsened by lengthy approval processes, causing productivity issues and making it harder to adapt quickly.
Enter Zluri’s EAS, a game-changing solution designed to tackle the problems caused by limited automation and complex approval processes. This all-in-one platform empowers employees to effortlessly access applications and resources without facing unnecessary bureaucracy.
The core aim of the EAS is to give employees more control over their technology tools. With a wide array of applications to choose from, employees can select what best matches their unique requirements and preferences. This newfound independence creates a work environment that's personalized and ultimately more productive.
The standout advantage of Zluri's EAS is its simplified access request process. Employees can now directly request access to the applications they need, without getting caught up in convoluted approval chains. This streamlined process ensures quick responses, allowing employees to adapt rapidly to their new responsibilities.
Zluri's EAS enhances transparency in access requests, lightening the load on your IT teams. Employees can easily keep tabs on the progress of their requests, building trust and better collaboration with the IT department.
Above all, the EAS is designed to supercharge productivity and cultivate an agile workforce. By giving employees prompt access to the tools they require, downtime is minimized, and efficiency is maximized. Removing prolonged approval processes empowers teams to respond swiftly to evolving needs, maintaining a competitive edge within their industries.
Traditional ULM tools have limitations that hinder employee empowerment and do not allow employees to choose the applications they need to perform their roles effectively. Instead, employees often go through a time-consuming and frustrating process of requesting access to specific applications, which involves multiple interactions with the IT department.
This lack of autonomy over application access can delay getting the necessary tools and hinder employees' productivity and efficiency in their new roles.
