Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based civic engagement solutions for government, announced today that the City of Eastvale, California, has selected the Accela Civic Platform to upgrade its current technology infrastructure. The City will work with Accela and its certified professional services partner Woolpert on the citywide upgrade.
Accela will modernize Eastvale’s software foundation in a rapid rollout, which will include integration with the Springbrook software finance and administration solutions that the City already uses. The project will be implemented quickly because Accela recently acquired Springbrook to expand the government functions supported by the Civic Platform and alignment of the software is already underway.
Eastvale, one of the fastest growing cities in California, became one of the newest cities in Western Riverside County in 2010. Accela will provide Eastvale with the Civic Platform to modernize its technology foundation, as well as Accela solutions that include Land Management, Licensing & Case Management, and the newly integrated Finance & Administration.
As a result, residents and businesses will find it easier and faster to apply for building permits or business licenses, look into city budgets and property taxes, and conduct other business with the City. The Accela Civic Platform helps cities streamline these operations and makes them available online and on mobile applications to simplify citizen engagement.
“We are excited to work with the City of Eastvale as they implement Accela solutions in efforts to provide efficiency and transparency to citizens and businesses alike,” said Maury Blackman, Accela President and CEO. “By implementing our Civic Platform, Eastvale will have the ability to enhance relations between the City and its people.”
Accela and Woolpert will begin working with the City immediately to implement the Civic Platform and other Accela solutions. Once rolled out, Eastvale and its residents will benefit greatly from significantly improved efficiency and transparency of city business.
