Accela Named As One of SaaS Mag’s Fastest-Growing SaaS Companies
Annual award reflects govtech SaaS veteran’s leadership in delivering innovative solutions to help governments drive digital transformation and pivot rapidly to evolving demands
Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions for government, announced it has been recognized among the world’s fastest-growing SaaS companies for the second consecutive year. The SaaS 1000 list is published by SaaS Mag, which delivers key business and technical insights and market trends to the biggest players in the SaaS industry. Powered by Microsoft Azure, Accela’s secure and flexible SaaS solutions equip governments with the resources to quickly respond to evolving community needs, increase efficiency, and maintain resilience. More than half of Accela’s state and local customers are now in the cloud, underscoring the increasing importance of digital tools for navigating modern governance.
“By moving services to the cloud, governments can modernize their operations, uplevel service delivery and redefine citizen engagement, rather than spend time maintaining servers, networks, and virtual machines,” said Renato Mascardo, Chief Technology Officer at Accela. “We have heard from government IT and business leaders alike about the need for digital tools to respond to fast-changing, mission-critical demands, and we are laser-focused on creating user-centered technology solutions to help our customers put the needs of their communities first during these challenging times. The trend toward cloud adoption has never been stronger.”
The accolade recognizes Accela’s innovation in helping government agencies embrace digital technology to help create resident-centric communities that will thrive today and in the future. With more than 20 years of experience of exclusively serving governments, Accela is a trusted technology partner that works hand-in-hand with state and local leaders to modernize service delivery, streamline critical workflows, and address costs associated with maintaining legacy IT systems.
Accela recently launched a new SaaS Upgrade Program designed to help state and local governments more quickly and easily move legacy systems to the cloud to bolster resilience, scalability, and efficiency. The initiative helps agencies transition from on-premise systems to any of its cloud applications powered by Microsoft Azure. Over the past year, Accela also expanded integrations with fellow tech giants Microsoft and Esri to help governments leverage spatial data and cloud analytics to make more proactive, data-driven decisions. In doing so, agencies can improve economic development, offer greater transparency to their citizens, and save valuable time and resources.
Today’s announcement builds on Accela’s momentum in the SaaS technology space. Accela’s SaaS solutions also recently received a 2020 Microsoft US (MSUS) Partner Award for helping its customers respond to the COVID-19 pandemic by transitioning critical citizen services online, enabling remote workflows, and maintaining public health and safety.
