Some contracted companies may require access to the work order systems in various capacities. This includes companies that complete work orders, as well as requester access for vendors that stay on campus for the duration of the contract. To access the system, the members that will be interacting with Asset Essentials will need a John Carroll email, as well as SSO access. For these non-employee accounts, the John Carroll employee that manages the contract in question will need to sponsor this access. What this means, is that the sponsoring employee is responsible for the use of this access to John Carroll's IT services. To sponsor the account please go here and sign in with your JCU SSO information.

It will take a few days for the account creation process to take place. When it is complete, the ticket will be updated with the initial login information for the individuals. You will send this information to the individuals to setup the accounts. Once the accounts are setup, they should automatically have access to Asset Essentials. In the event it does not work, or the contactor requires different access, such as being assigned and working on work orders, please contact facilities.

NOTE:  Facilities staff will only enter a resident hall room or student living space after 10am to perform maintenance work unless it is an emergency or with resident approval.

We appreciate calls when there is an emergency; however, we still need a work order placed in order to keep record of the issue and the follow up efficiently.
