SPI Research Ranks Accruent Among Service Elite
Accruent, the leading provider of Enterprise Location Management (ELM) solutions, has been recognized as one of the top providers of professional services nationwide in a benchmark survey conducted by independent research firm Service Performance Insight (SPI).
In its 2010 Professional Services Maturity Model Benchmark, SPI Research, an independent research and consulting firm, published findings based on an analysis of 225 participating service organizations. Fifteen firms (7%) significantly outperformed the benchmark average by excelling in all five service performance dimensions – Vision and Strategy, Finance and Operations, Human Capital Alignment, Service Execution and Client Relationships. Accruent was named one of the “Top Fifteen” service organizations that distinguished themselves as the “Best of the Best”, and placed third overall.
“We believe it is important to benchmark ourselves against the very best service organizations,” said Mark Friedman, Accruent founder and chief executive officer. “We understand how crucial our service offerings are to the success of our customers, and we thank our dedicated employees for enabling us to rank among the elite service organizations, not just among software companies but consulting and specialized service providers too.”
