Accela Recognized on GovTech 100 List for Eighth Consecutive Year for Accelerating State and Local Government Innovation

San Ramon, Calif. (January 4, 2023)Accela, the trusted provider of cloud solutions at the heart of government operations, today announced its eighth consecutive selection for Government Technology magazine’s annual GovTech 100 list. The GovTech 100 recognizes the top government technology companies that enable state and local United States governments to best serve their residents. The annual list is developed by industry experts, government staff, investors, and the Government Technology magazine editorial team.

”As the dynamic government technology industry continues to evolve, Accela is committed to consistently delivering the solutions and services that state and local governments need to serve their communities effectively, keep pace with resident demands and be best prepared to address any emerging challenges,” said Gary Kovacs, chief executive officer at Accela. “Accela is honored to be recognized once again on Government Technology magazine’s coveted GovTech 100 list—what a great way to kick off the new year!”

Accela is focused on powering the heart of government and developing new solutions in response to agencies’ needs.
