February 7, 2011
Accruent, LLC., the market leading provider of Enterprise Location Management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner Inc.’s 2011 ‘Magic Quadrant for Integrated Workplace Management Systems’ report, released on January 31, 2011.
Companies placed in the Leaders Quadrant have “strength in applications and platform technology, demonstrate a high level of quality in product reliability and service, have strong operational and organizational capabilities and financial stability, have global reach and offer a strong vision of customer needs, reflected in a robust development road map.”
According to Gartner’s Rob Schafer, the report’s author, the Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS) market is targeted at the efficient, coordinated management of the complete real estate/facilities life cycle that cover the five core areas of construction project management, real estate administration and management, space and facilities management, maintenance management and sustainability.
“We share Gartner’s position that large scale, end-to-end location management solutions are increasingly strategic and deliver significant customer ROI as facility and real estate costs are usually the second-largest budget item for any enterprise. We are pleased to be recognized as a leader in this space,” said Mark Friedman, founder and chief executive officer at Accruent. “Our goal is to provide our customers with the highest ROI application that they can implement through solutions that are targeted for their specific needs.”
