Accruent EMS is classroom booking software that unifies event and conference scheduling, academic class and exam scheduling, campus events and space reservation, faculty meeting bookings and more.
Why we need it
The University found a growing need for more flexible room booking options. Until July 2021, room booking was primarily managed as a series of Google calendars managed by a wide variety of departmental contacts. The Accruent EMS system is the next step in room booking management as our scalable solution to this problem. The Mesa Campus will be the first to adopt this software for room booking.
A Team Effort
The Mesa Campus Room Booking Committee was formed in June 2020 and includes representatives from each school, as well as Student Affairs and Student Life, ITS, and the Library; the Committee is overseen by Ted Wendel, PhD. Over the past year, the Committee has worked together to create a cohesive room booking policy and recommended EMS as the best solution for our growing room reservation needs.

Here is a video of one of the training sessions if you do not have time to attend a one on one session or do not have time to attend a larger informational session.
As of July 15th, 2021 there are two errors currently reported to EMS. **Google calendar integration issues have been reported and are currently being investigated.
