Data storage and synchronization are important in most organizations nowadays as more IT systems are widely used. Keeping information updated in all systems at all times can be very challenging and time consuming. With Efftel AD Integration, you can now synchronize user information stored in the Active Directory (AD) with your cloud-based PBX, saving you time and providing an assurance that the correct information is present in both places.

(Note: AD integration with Efftel does not provide “single sign-on” functionality.)

What is Active Directory (AD)?

Active Directory (AD) is a directory service developed by Microsoft for Windows domain network. Most, if not all, information regarding the domain is stored in the AD; for instance, the users, printers, workstation, etc.

By integrating AD with Efftel telephony solutions, locating and managing users become easier when information can be mapped from one system to another.
