Pros: The ease of use and the amount of time it saves in laborious task We are a school of 1500 students and 200 staff and every year we get an extra 220 pupils so you can imagine the task to create new accounts.

Cons: A bit of a learning curve to start with and that we couldn't upgrade our existing set up due to how old it was but otherwise it's good.

Overall: Time saving

XIA Automation is definitely a game-changer for our managed service delivery. Highly recommended.

Pros: Being able to get teachers to reset student passwords eliminating the need for pupils to leave the classroom

Cons: Initial setup takes a lot of work,

Overall: We find that this is a very useful product and eliminates the need to swamp the IT support staff with student password resets.

Pros: The return on investment is immense if you have any time consuming repetitive tasks to perform.
Automating repetitive tasks with XIA Automation ensures mistakes made while manually performing these tasks never happens.
Being able to easily delegate any task without giving any elevated access to a user is invaluable.
Simple to setup.
Easy to use.

Cons: Haven't found anything I do not like about this software.

Overall: This software allows you to automate and almost as importantly delegate any administrative task in AD, Exchange, on servers, on workstations, and anything else you can script somehow.

It has its own script designer and it can also run pretty much any other script you care to create too.

It accepts web form inputs for the variables to pass or a CSV file.

Customer support has alway been second to none.

Try it out, you'll see why I like it so much.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it. The low price is not indicative of any limitation of the software.
