OBJECTIVE AND TRUSTED RESULTS
Customers trust assessment data delivered by the Accruent team. Our assessment methodology is based on industry standards from organizations such as APPA, IFMA, BOMA, and RSMeans®, refined by experience assessing over five billion square feet of facilities worldwide, and tightly integrated with the powerful cloud-based capital planning software, VFA.facility. And because Accruent provides assessment services only (no remediation), customers can be assured of objective results.
