The state’s more than 500 digitally processed applications act as a model for modernization and revenue generation With the first medical marijuana licenses expected for release on July 12 and 546 applications already processed, Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) announced Wednesday that licenses can be distributed as soon as approval is given by the state’s Medical Marihuana Licensing Board. LARA’s Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation used technology found in Accela’s Civic Application for Cannabis Regulation to process hundreds of medical marijuana license applications that were submitted since December 2017.

Herfie is Back and Springbrook is Standing Tall



Herfie is Back and Springbrook is Standing Tall By: Max Schnoedl This week, we shared some exciting news  with the local government financial community – we’re bringing Springbrook back, along with its beloved mascot, Herfie the cow. We believe that our 900 local government customers, together with many more of their peers across the US, should benefit from a modern, high-performance cloud offering to manage their finances, payroll and utility billing efficiently from coast to coast.

A note from Accela’s Chairman and new acting CEO, Mark Jung

After spending some time working closely with the Accela team, I wanted to formally introduce myself and let you know that in addition to Chairman of the Board, I have assumed the role of acting CEO at Accela. For more than 15 years, many of which were under the excellent leadership of Maury Blackman, Accela has established itself as the leader in delivering robust, government-centric solutions that drive efficiency and engagement for communities of all sizes. From my experience leading both private and public companies in the enterprise software and cloud spaces, Accela has reached a place where it is ready to catapult to the next level, and I’m humbled to be a part of it. I recently spoke with Government Technology about a new direction for Accela—one that I believe will steer the company into a future of even greater innovation—and I’d like to share my goals for Accela...
