New User Form

we want to create a "on boarding" new user form workflow.
 So new employees can access the form and check what applications they need. i.e. e-mail, financial system, reporting.
it would need to pull name from our AD.  
Could sharpoint do this ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
