SAN RAMON, Calif. – October 8, 2015 – Accela, the leading provider of civic engagement solutions for government, today announced a joint integration with Questys Solutions to provide Monterey County, California a comprehensive solution for electronic content and records management. This integration will allow the County to automate and extend the Accela Civic Platform with Questys electronic document management, record management, imaging, data capture and workflow. Now, Monterey County will have streamlined access to records through keyword and full-text search, allowing employees to get to the information they need directly from their desktops in seconds rather than searching multiple applications or digging through paper records.

Through this latest partnership, the County aims to provide its staff greater transparency, accountability and coordination with the public and partner agencies, while increasing efficiencies to reduce costs and improve service delivery.

Accela Civic Platform provides cities the foundation for automating critical tasks associated with civic functions for land management, licensing, asset management, and public health and safety. Questys Solutions enables customers to manage their assets while increasing productivity and ensuring records management compliance. The partnership between these two solutions will further Monterey County’s mission of enhancing the quality of life and economic health of the community by providing responsive, efficient, and high quality public services and to promote good stewardship of natural and man-made resources.

“To achieve their goal of providing better services to citizens, government agencies need to better manage the flow of information throughout their organizations,” said Maury Blackman, Accela President and CEO. “Our partnership with Questys enables us to help customers like Monterey County reach this goal by advancing content management and optimizing business processes.”
