Take any of the training when it is available as it helps a lot.
The best part is that it is accessible at any time or any place from any computer or mobile device.
It can be pricey the more people added to the access. And the upgrades are costly and difficult to do.

Very easy to use. I've used many other tools and some could be buggie. Not the case with Accruent. I loved it!
Overall, I didn't love the display/homepage. If it's something they can improved, this tool would be even better.
Dennis from TOMS KING
Great connection, easy to use and setup considering with our company of over 100 locations. Like the controls and what we can do with our team to make services easier for our field department
Some of the upgrades are expensive. Follow up calls involve too much when you know the path you're going down.
Find out what fits for your organization. We had to evaluate 3 different vendors before settling on one. Don't make the mistake of finding the first one then going all in. Invest the time to get it right.

User friendly and able to reopen or reassign tickets to complete tickets.
A little more difficult to give permissions to authorized users without instruction.
Complete training when providing access for users.
