The 2014 Accela Partner and Developer Conference was a great success. Our partners arrived expecting to learn how to increase their revenues building, selling and delivering Civic Platform solutions while providing civic good, and we did not let them down. As our company has grown, so has our channel. What started a decade ago as a small group of companies implementing our software has grown into a vibrant ecosystem across segments of sales, delivery, alliance and development, all actively enjoying success as Accela partners.

The Accela Partner and Developer Conference: Growing Partners and Growing Scale

Maury Blackman
We’re kicking off the seventh annual Accela Partner and Developer Conference this morning and this meeting couldn’t come at a better time.

Along with the proliferation of social networks and mobile and tablet usage, we know that governments must adapt to better connect to the citizens they serve. We spent the morning defining citizen engagement.
