Everytime you start a new project or create a new service. You need to code the user authentification and your group management in order to manage you users. With Usr you just have one service and easy rest methods to manage you users and their groups.
Usr provides you a webservice to authenticate and manage your users with a REST API :
1/ You deploy your service to auth.yourdomain.com 2/ You can use Oauth2 to authentificate your user.
