Accela Helps Florida Local Governments Migrate to the Cloud

Accela, a provider of cloud solutions, announced five Florida cities and counties – Polk County, Tampa, Weston, Charlotte County and Hillsborough County – have migrated to the cloud with Accela. As local and state municipalities expedite their digital transformations with Accela’s suite of cloud solutions, governments are delivering easier-to-manage, more cost-effective and more secure services to their residents.

“When I speak with our government partners, I consistently hear they are passionate about finding solutions that help them deliver essential services faster, easier and more cost-effectively – and this is all possible with the cloud,” said JK Knight, chief customer officer at Accela. “Migrating to the cloud is one of the most responsible uses of IT funds and plays a critical role in building stronger, more resilient communities. It breaks down organizational barriers and establishes a ‘one-stop-shop’ to best service agencies and residents alike.”

Agencies are turning to modern gov tech solutions to increase their agility, resiliency and engagement with residents as new federal funding is available and residents increasingly expect 24/7 access to civic services. Accela’s SaaS platform and cloud solutions, including the Civic Platform powered by Microsoft Azure, simplify resident and staff experiences and create digital efficiencies that save time and money for everything from opening and running a business, to applying for permits to scheduling inspections. 

Governments turn to Accela’s cloud solutions to power the fast and compliant inspections, citations, permitting and notifications essential to creating a thriving community. Accela has helped more than 33 jurisdictions migrate to the cloud since 2021, and 16 additional jurisdictions are in the migration pipeline.
