Accruent Connects with Acquisition of Verisae

Accruent, the world’s largest provider of real estate, facilities and asset management solutions, today announced the acquisition of Verisae, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based solutions that connect facilities and assets to the maintenance and service network through the Internet of Things (IoT).

Managing the real estate and facilities lifecycle is second only to people as the largest expense item in enterprises today, and the cumulative annual spend is over one trillion dollars globally. For over 20 years, the software to serve this market has been a collection of fragmented point solutions. Bringing together the ability to strategically plan, to execute those strategies, and to proactively manage daily operations across the complete lifecycle, with the capability of the IoT and mobile field service management is revolutionary for the industry.

“With the addition of Verisae, Accruent is uniquely equipped to deliver game-changing customer value,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “We can now help customers manage their complete facilities lifecycle from strategy to execution by connecting real estate and facilities to assets and service teams through the Internet of Things. The next-generation capabilities we are providing to customers drive step-function performance gains and enable them to deliver a transformative customer experience.”

Verisae brings applications that can react and respond in real-time, and connect facilities and equipment to the teams that service and support them.

A recent press release from Gartner stated, “IoT creates a unified view of facilities management as well as advanced service operations through the collection of data and insights from a multitude of sensors. ‘Especially in large sites, such as industrial zones, office parks, shopping malls, airports or seaports, IoT can help reduce the cost of energy, spatial management and building maintenance by up to 30 percent,’ added Ms. Tratz-Ryan.” 1

In addition, research shows that mobile field service solutions can deliver an 18 to 40 percent improvement2 across a range of productivity, service level and financial metrics. The value created by connecting and automating the facilities and service teams in real-time is significant.

BJ’s Wholesale Club has been a long-time user of both Accruent and Verisae solutions. Peter Thomas, SVP, director of real estate and property development at BJ’s, commented, “These solutions help us deliver value to our members by operating our clubs as efficiently as possible while ensuring a great shopping experience for our members.”

“Our goal has always been to connect our asset management solutions with software that manages the real estate and facilities lifecycle,” said Jerry Dolinsky, CEO, Verisae. “By joining forces with Accruent, we will offer unprecedented scope – everything from long-term strategy and planning that spans years or even decades, through the real estate lifecycle including lease administration and construction project management, and through facilities management, field service and the real-time world of equipment monitoring and control.”

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud.

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
