Occupational Licensing

Move the process of issuing licenses online and energize business growth in your community

Evaluate and process applicants online, not in line.

The process of occupational licensing is about protecting the health, safety, and welfare of your citizens, but doing it in a way that promotes business growth at the same time. Accela’s SaaS occupational licensing solution helps professional and occupational regulatory agencies automate the processes of issuing occupational licenses both within the agency and for applicants. 


  • Improved experience for applicants

    Reduce application cycle times by offering the ability to submit applications and paperwork online, pay fees digitally, and check status in real time. Getting licenses to workers more efficiently helps grow commerce in communities.

  • Lower costs for agencies

    Remove manual steps, including re-keying data and paper handling, to save money and minimize need to grow in areas such as call center resources.

  • Better protect citizens

    Capture and manage all the data in the applicant review process and ensure it integrates with other systems, both internal and cross-agency, to make sure all relevant data is captured and used within the licensing process.

  • Covers a broad array of occupations

    From Acupuncturists to Home Inspectors, Cosmetologists to Realtors, you have a variety of occupational licenses to process. Accela has the flexibility and built-in occupation types to shorten the time-to-value in getting your system up and running.
