Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based SaaS solutions for government, announced the winners of its Trendsetter Awards at its annual conference, Accelarate, this week. The virtual conference provided a space for the event's more than 1,800 attendees to engage and learn from state and local government leaders, product experts, and industry changemakers on how cutting-edge cloud solutions can help to solve today's most pressing civic problems.
The theme of this year's conference, which ran from October 4-6, was "Our Path Forward," focusing on the way cities, states, and counties anticipate and meet challenges head-on to create better agency and constituent outcomes. From implementing new digital processes that allow for planning proposals and permit applications to be submitted online, to digitally transforming inspection processes to protect the public health and safety of citizens, to leveraging data for better community outcomes, the award winners demonstrate how state and local government agencies are using Accela's cloud-based solutions to help communities overcome adversity.
During Accelarate, attendees heard from Accela executives and product experts, and gained insight into the cloud solutions and digital strategies that will revitalize communities, improve service delivery, and accelerate recovery.
"With the challenges presented to governments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing recovery efforts, they must reimagine how to deliver essential services while also meeting the consumer-like expectations of their residents. During Accelarate's Trendsetter Awards online ceremony, Accela is proud to recognize the agencies and individuals who are overcoming many of these challenges by leveraging Accela's cloud-based solutions in innovative or collaborative ways to build more resilient futures for their communities."
