Attached is a recent email we sent out to all our clients who currently use…
Here at Deschutes Design Group LLC, we believe that every service we provide should be as efficient and easy-to-use as possible. As our company grows, the amount of services we provide has exponentially grown as well. With this growth has come the need for additional behind-the-scenes applications to run our services. As a client, having to login to multiple applications can become difficult and rather annoying. Trying to remember several passwords or how to update your billing information should not be your priority. We hope that when you visit our website, your experience is as seamless and efficient as possible.
Within the next few months, Deschutes Design Group LLC will begin implementing a practice known as Single Sign-On (SSO). “…SSO is a property of identity and access management (IAM) that enables users to securely authenticate with multiple applications and websites by logging in only once—with just one set of credentials (username and password). With SSO, the application or website that the user is trying to access relies on a trusted third party to verify that users are who they say they are.” (OneLogin) What this means is, as a client of Deschutes Design Group LLC, you will only need to remember one login to access all our services. Furthermore, all your services will be located in one central location.
What does this mean for you? As we get closer to the official go-live date, you may see a new login screen that will prompt you to enter your username/password or use a Social account (Facebook, Twitter, GitHub, Google) to authenticate. When this happens, please use the same email address you have on file with us already. If you use a different email address, your accounts may not link correctly. If you choose to use the username/password option, you will first need to register and create a new account. Again, use the same email address you’ve used all along.
We will be providing support for this transition and all support tickets will be answered promptly and in a timely manner. Thank you for being our client and we hope this update will improve your user experience.
FOR DEVELOPERS: We will be releasing our custom built SSO applications for Invision Power Board and WHMCS after we go live. If you are interested in integrating SSO within your online community, please contact us for a quote or questions.
