During the Insights opening day presentation, customers received a first look at the newly redesigned mobile application for 360Facility – Accruent’s purpose-built automated work order management system for facilities maintenance for the corporate real estate market. The 360Facility app, available for iOS and Android, simplifies facilities management by allowing technicians to manage and create work orders, upload and view pictures, add labor hours, comments and assets, all in a newly streamlined user experience.
"On average, each of my engineers has saved at least an hour a week using the new 360Facility app to manage and streamline work orders," said Thomas Curley, facilities manager with JLL. "In addition to productivity benefits, the app is very intuitive, which enabled our team to begin using it within hours.”
In addition to the 360Facility mobile application for corporate real estate, Accruent announced the release of a suite of mobile apps for TMS that will feature simple, connected functionality for key users. TMS is the company’s flagship biomedical asset management and facility management product for the healthcare industry.
