Overall Satisfaction with Accruent EMS Software

The Accruent EMS Software is being used to book rehearsal space at various location in New York City. It is mostly used by booking agents taking calls from clients and staff with tablets booking rooms for clients on the spot. The business problem Accruent EMS Software solves is it provides the unique solution for our business model of providing rehearsal space for the acting/musician community in the Tri State area.
  • It is quick and easy to book a room.
  • The main dashboard provides a grid like look on what spaces are booked and what is available.
  • The GUI is relatively easy to maneuver which lessens the learning curve.
  • There's no 'remote function' of the software. It's client server based. Some additional Server hardware is required to gain remote access.
  • On the backend, SQL is required and takes some technical knowledge to configure and maintain.
  • The reporting tool is lacking and can only provide limited or generic information. The tools needs to be able to provide customization when making a report.
  • One positive is it provides the basic function of booking space as per our business model.
  • One the negative side, it is expensive software, including maintaining and supporting the network it runs on.
  • Overall Accruent EMS has had a positive effect on the overall business objective.
Teems provided most of the functionality Accruent EMS Software provided, but in a more simplistic way. Although Teems almost half the price of Accruent EMS Software, we felt EMS was a better fit. There support and knowledge base was far superior to their competitors.
With upgrading our infrastructure, we are able to scale Accruent EMS Software to double our booking and accounting department.
We have cafes in our sites so we utilize this feature. The function works well for our needs.
Accruent EMS Software is well suited for our business model of renting rehearsal space. Using SQL as the backend allows us to create custom APIs to enhance the invoice and billing modules and booking display boards for the staff and client base. There's no a la carte where we can choose modules, so we are not benefiting from some of the other modules such as the video conferencing, but we might take advantage of the booking self-service in the coming year.
