Accruent Launches Accruent Academy, a Continuous Training Resource to Drive User Adoption, ROI and Meet Compliance Regulations

the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions,
announced today the global launch of the Accruent
Academy Learning Center, a continuous training resource for
customers. The Academy includes courses ranging from small classroom
settings and train-the-trainer sessions to large training solutions with
role-based, eLearning training in multiple languages that can be
utilized by a customer’s learning management system.

“The actual finish line in a technology implementation is when the
company achieves increased productivity or meets the business goals they
developed ahead of time.” [1] When implementing a new solution within an
organization, change management and user adoption are key components to
ensuring a successful implementation and a better return on investment.
By offering a variety of training options from in-classroom to digital
continuous learning platforms, Accruent is accelerating product usage
throughout global organizations.

“New software solutions present a change management challenge for
organizations,” says Stephanie Verhulst, Academy Director, Accruent.
“Different users have different roles in using the software, so we are
enabling users to learn exactly what they need at their own pace.”

The curriculum includes best practices from Accruent’s user community.
As a result, users do not have to figure out everything for themselves,
but are guided on how to configure the system in the right way for their
company. The training courses – initially for Accruent’s lease
accounting and engineering information management solutions – are
developed by Accruent instructors with years of experience and are
modeled on how customers are using the software. Accruent Academy will
continue to expand to other product families including its Internet of
Things platform and capital planning software.

“When a company introduces new technology, it has a huge impact on their
business processes,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “By investing
heavily in a training program, we are affirming our commitment to our
customers because they are not just purchasing a product; they are using
our technology to help them execute on their mission.”

Some training courses include certification to ensure users have
absorbed an appropriate level of working knowledge of the software.
There are four curriculum versions available to customers:

Accruent’s continuous learning program ensures that large groups of
users can start working with the software at the same time. Users are
not restricted by classroom size or by waiting for all users to
understand each step before advancing in the training. Another benefit
of continuous learning is in mitigating the risks associated with staff
turnover. With continuous learning, Accruent can onboard and train new
employees to ensure there are no gaps, especially for system

When appropriate, Accruent offers customized eLearning by working
closely with customers to develop training that includes their Standard
Operating Procedures. In addition, for companies that must be compliant
with specific regulations, Accruent can monitor and track successful
training completion. In addition, users can create and export reports to
track successful training completion for audit purposes.

Academy Learning Center is available immediately worldwide.
