What is Accruent EMS Software?

Accruent's EMS Software connects people with the right spaces, resources, and technology, solving today’s workspace and scheduling challenges and enabling organizations to get the most from their modern work and learning environments.

Employees want the flexibility to work from anywhere and to collaborate using their preferred technologies in a safe and social environment. At the same time, leaders need to drive value for their businesses by making the best possible use of their real estate footprint. Multi-use spaces, hoteling or hot desking, and open floor plans can provide efficiencies, but not when burdened with redundant, outdated tools, and processes disconnected from the rest of a business.

So EMS Software is provided as an intelligent, enterprise-class scheduling and resource management software platform, configured and integrated to a unique office environment. The vendor describes it as a management tool that offers the flexibility employees demand, while providing users the visibility, control and insights needed to drive value for the organization.The vendor further boasts deep industry expertise, with over 35 years in the business .

EMS software is used by our registrar's office as well as other departments across campus. In my department, Notre Dame Studios, we use EMS to schedule services, resources, and space. It has helped us manage all of our resources in one place.

We use EMS to schedule all meetings on 12 departments. It handles all of our meeting problems pretty well. At our office of the department there are only two meeting rooms for 87 workers and 9 squads. We can book a room easily.

We have engaged Accruent EMS software in my organization for managing meetings whether they are physical or online. It helps with booking meeting rooms, video conferencing, and management of workspaces. With EMS we avoid double booking rooms and ensure the meeting rooms are allocated in accordance with the number of people meeting and the available technology.

I book conference rooms and event spaces as well as a lending pool for meetings, training, and events such as retirement parties, Alumni teas, nursing graduations, etc. I also coordinate set-ups and take-downs for these events. Once a week, I print reports and deliver them to the appropriate depts.

We've been using EMS for several years now and have found it to be efficient and easy to use for both desktop and web based clients. We have very few issues and when we have, we have had a positive response to our questions. We are not yet using it campus wide, but hope to incorporate other buildings in the future. Right now our student union buildings and visitor's center are the only buildings that use EMS.

We use Accruent EMS to help build transparency for room availability for our stakeholders: students and staff. The use case for our org is having different stakeholders with different booking privileges, whether it's boardrooms, multipurpose rooms, hoteling stations, promotional tables. Through the Accruent EMS web app, we enable some stakeholders to place a tentative hold on the space and then the room owners approve the space without the need to go through multiple iterations of emails to request a space. Other stakeholders use the desktop client to see and request for space.

Accruent EMS is used by the Hospitality/Facilities Department of my organization. Currently we use it for conference room use as well as Zoom account use. In the future we may use it for office space reservations. We were at a very high volume of meetings and events and Accruent EMS helps to ensure we don't double book rooms, that meetings are using the correct size room, etc.

The entire firm uses this software to reserve conference rooms and business services in our main office location and two small satellite locations. It is accessible both via a web portal and as an Outlook integration. Services such as catering and technology equipment needs can be indicated as part of the reservation.

Accruent EMS is used by our organization to schedule meetings and events (on and offsite), visitor offices, and apartments. It is also used to manage technology, catering, and facility needs. It is used across the entire company by coordinators to schedule requests, service teams, and employees to submit requests. It allows us to use one platform for all events throughout our firm, as well as to report on meetings and events and billing.

Accruent EMS was a replacement product from a program that required a great deal of maintenance. The beauty of this program was how little maintenance it needed once it was up and running. We started off by allowing all users to access it to create their own reservations and, then, took advantage of its flexibility. We changed the "Buildings" to "Conference room," "Vehicles," and "Outside areas" as we only have one - very large - campus. That allows a user to select one of those instead of "all" and see only what they provide. For example, if I'm looking for a vehicle, I don't have to sift through all the room and garden areas to find one. Another advantage is how Accruent EMS keeps everyone up to date on events and their details, alerting each department of what is expected of them when/where. This worked great for years and allowed me to print reports of upcoming events so we could meet every other week to hash out campus and staffing obstacles. However, recently, our company decided it wanted one person inputting most of the reservations so we could keep a Master calendar more consistent having someone who knows what details should be added to every reservation and to force the departments to give more descriptive summaries for publishing. Once that person created it in the user's name, they still have access to see it for reference or to ask for additional details to be added. Accruent EMS is a huge program with so much to offer and we have tried to take advantage of all of it. The auto-reporting has been a great advantage to the technicians who provide the actual services as they can receive those in email every day and know what's needed. They no longer have to depend on work orders or direction from administrative staff. The reminders, confirmation emails have also been a great advantage. I am the IT support for the program and I rarely have to deal with it, which frees me up to tackle bigger network issues.

We use EMS to manage our internal conference and meeting room space. It is used extensively throughout our organization. It allows our staff to reserve meeting space and designate food service.
