Rockford Corporation was seeking a solution that would allow their IT support team to manage user accounts without having to deal with the complexity of ConsoleOne to support Novell eDirectory and GroupWise. Rockford purchased Omni's workstation-based Help Desk Utility (HDU), because it allowed the Help Desk team members and junior administrators to perform user account management tasks from a restricted Windows application.

While HDU allowed Rockford to reduce the amount of time senior administrators spent performing routine tasks, HDU still required that users be given eDirectory and GroupWise trustee assignments. As a publicly-traded company, this was no longer an option for Rockford due to Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. In order to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley, Rockford needed to remove excessive and multiple administrator rights from their messaging and file systems, yet still provide a way for junior administrators to carry out user account management tasks with no trustee assignments.

They implemented eControl to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley and to improve their user account management processes. eControl proved to be superior to HDU, and to all native administration tools, because it uses a web-based "ZERO Rights" user account management strategy.
