Accruent Professional Services’ mission is to understand our customers’ visions, goals, and objectives and ensure their successful achievement through the delivery of Accruent enterprise location management solutions, leveraging our proven methodology and unparalleled customer base.

Business Value Assessment (BVA)

The real estate and facilities lifecycle is complex, and many companies have quickly learned that they cannot address all areas of concern simultaneously. Instead, they identify the areas that present the greatest opportunity for improvement and rapid ROI. To address the challenges and tap the hidden value of real estate assets, Accruent’s BVA is a rapid, customer specific analysis that results in a business case for improved performance and profitability through Accruent solutions.

Implementation Services

Large scale implementations of software that include disparate user groups, multiple integrations, structured timetables, and costly resources must be properly planned and strictly managed from project inception. Accruent offers a knowledge-sharing, or mentoring, approach in all engagements to guarantee success. Our customers are most successful when they understand the solution being implemented and effectively leverage the benefits in their organizations. Accelerate™, Accruent’s implementation methodology, follows a proven, repeatable four-stage method based on the Conference Room Pilot (CRP) approach to effectively manage the implementation project. The CRP allows you to test premises and iterate processes in a simulated production environment, using your own data, until all flows and transactions are executed to your satisfaction.

  • Business requirements analysis
  • Configuration of solution
  • Validation of solution through Conference Room Pilot(s)
