Accruent for Higher Education

Campus facilities too often are managed tactically, with insufficient recognition of the strategic role they play in an institution’s overall success. In fact, colleges and universities have very complex location management requirements – dorm rooms, food service, classrooms, libraries, laboratories, computer centers, and sports complexes – and maintaining the standard of these critical facilities is key to an institution’s ability to compete for the best students and faculty, and attract research programs. With campus facilities representing the second or third largest operating expense, current economic realities have only heightened their importance in any institution’s continued success.

To capitalize on the competitive potential of their campus, facility management executives need a comprehensive and integrated view of their complex facilities operations. Accruent enterprise location management solutions create an environment where all stakeholders – administrators, staff, suppliers, and contractors – work toward shared operational and strategic objectives. We help provide the clarity and control required to maintain high standards and support changes in enrollment and funding, while driving reductions in operating costs.

Accruent for Higher Education automates the entire lifecycle of facilities activities with solutions that address:

  • Strategic Planning, Capital Planning and Budgeting
  • Transaction Management
  • Project Management
  • Location Management
  • Space and Maintenance Management
