Studio Movie Grill Selects Accruent’s Project Management Software
In-Theater Dining Innovator to Leverage the Scalability of Expesite
Austin, Texas, March 29, 2017 – Accruent, the world’s leading provider of software and services that enable organizations to shape, drive, manage and control their physical assets, today announced that Studio Movie Grill has selected Accruent’s project management software, Expesite.
Studio Movie Grill (SMG) is the leader in in-theater dining with 24 locations in 9 states. Since its inception in 2000, SMG has been offering first-run movies with food and beverage service to your seat. Now, SMG is the 19th largest movie chain in the United States and #1 in in-theater dining box-office revenue with 12 million customers visiting its theaters annually.
Initially, SMG will take advantage of core tools within Expesite to manage project schedules and milestones. Instead of separate calendars, documents and spreadsheets, Expesite will serve as the one source for current information with dynamic reports to view project status in real time.
“If there’s slippage in a project schedule, there’s an impact to our revenue,” said Andrew Bucki, VP of Development, Studio Movie Grill. “Because hitting store opening dates is critical to our business, we need the project visibility that Expesite provides.”
With Expesite, SMG can drive efficiency in the construction process, gain visibility into potential delays or cost overruns, shorten project timelines, and ensure new locations open on-schedule and on-budget.
In addition, SMG will utilize Expesite to establish new processes for construction and development. In the next phase, SMG will implement financial tracking to manage budget, bidding, and change requests.
“SMG has major expansion plans and Expesite scales well to meet these growth targets,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “With the addition of financial tracking, Expesite will allow SMG to drive the greatest ROI and value.”
