Austin-Based Accruent Announces 350 Tech Jobs in New Orleans
Multinational technology company Accruent has announced 350 new direct jobs in Greater New Orleans, establishing a technology center of excellence in New Orleans’ CBD. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Accruent is a leading provider of physical resource management solutions, enabling organizations to manage their real estate, facilities and equipment with software and services. Founded in 1995, Accruent now helps over 10,000 organizations in more than 150 countries. Accruent’s New Orleans office will include engineering, support, professional services, human resources, cloud operations, development operations, leadership, consulting, project management and sales.
In addition to the 350 new direct jobs, Louisiana Economic Development (LED) estimates the project will result in 338 indirect jobs, for a total of more than 680 new jobs in Louisiana’s Southeast Region. Accruent will occupy approximately 20,000 square feet of office space, with a specific downtown location to be announced soon. Accruent has begun hiring, with plans to reach full employment in New Orleans by 2020. Commercial operations will begin later this month.
“Since 2012, New Orleans has led the nation in technology job growth, and Accruent is pleased to continue this trend, bringing new jobs in software development, professional services, sales, customer support and administration,” said CEO John Borgerding. “Given the vibrant corporate community, tremendous growth opportunities and Accruent’s existing base of 50 Louisiana customers, New Orleans became the clear choice for our next wave of expansion.”
Greater New Orleans Inc., LED and the New Orleans Business Alliance first met with Accruent leadership to discuss a potential project in December 2017. Accruent initially set up a trial operation at GNO, Inc.’s office at The Shop; an early projection of 100 jobs grew to 350 over this trial period. Accruent is expected to utilize Louisiana’s Digital Media and the Quality Jobs programs, both of which are performance based, and are available to any qualifying company. Accruent will also enjoy the services of LED FastStart – the nation’s No. 1 state workforce development program.
