Service Request Management (SRM/CRM) - Accela Government Software

Service Request Management

The ultimate citizen-friendly tool for local governments

Making engagement with citizens easy, responsive and transparent is what a service request management tool is all about.

A branded, mobile and web-based application facilitates citizen relationship management and enables citizens to make requests for services and access information when it’s convenient for them, 24/7. With Accela’s service request management (SRM) software, your staff can leverage a central method for processing inquiries and requests. This ensures service requests are never dropped in handoff, and all parties, including citizens, get real time status on requests.

Benefits

  • Improved citizen engagement

    Accela’s Civic Solution for Service Request Management creates a branded and “consumer-like” experience for citizens. It includes the ability to have branded mobile and web-based sites that make it easy for citizens to make requests for services, or access other information such as community events, landmarks, and information on other services such as trash pickup schedules or road construction.

  • More efficient processing of requests

    Centralized processing of requests means fewer technology silos and demands on IT resources. With more interactions coming in online, agencies can better manage call center staffing, costs and expenses. Integration with work order management systems means no more manual transferring of data from siloed software systems.

  • Automated interagency collaboration

    The integration capabilities with Accela SRM enables efficient transfer of requests to the proper agencies, such as Public Works or Public Safety, and automates status reporting and completion records. This ensures service requests are never dropped in handoff, and all parties, including citizens, can get real time status on the request.

  • Create stronger communities

    More efficient processing of non-emergency citizen requests make for cleaner, safer and more livable communities.
