AdManager Plus is a powerful management tool that helps AD administrators and desk technicians to eliminate repetitive and complex AD Management tasks, like command lines and scripts, by automating routine tasks. This way it facilitates deletion of AD objects in Bulk and acts as an important resource during Compliance Audits.

The software's interface is built around simplicity, a contributing factor to this being the fact that it's entirely a web-based software. The main window is formed of a top tab menu, with several tabs, and the descriptive window of one of the tabs. It doesn't have any theme customizations, but the default color scheme is quite enjoyable so that shouldn't be a major issue.

Despite not having an impressing interface, considering nowadays standards, AdManager Plus offers a wide and powerful variety of features.
It has Active Directory Bulk User Management that helps users to better manage user accounts. It allows you to create multiple templates that contain standard user attribute values, which can be applied while creating users in bulk.

Also, with Active Directory Group Management Tool, users can simplify administration and achieve more flexibility, by adding or removing multiple group members, configuring exchange attributes or by doing bulk import from a CSV file at a single instance.

Other features include Help Desk Delegation, Active Directory Automation, Active Directory Cleanup, Active Directory Reports or Exchange Management.

To summarize, AdManager Plus is a powerful Active directory explorer, one which-despite having a manual and multiple tutorials- it's built for professionals, uses a high amount of system resources and, nonetheless, is quite expensive.
