Accela Wins 2023 Microsoft Government Partner of the Year

Accela, a provider at the heart of government operations, was honored as a Microsoft US Government Partner of the Year and as a finalist in the Social Impact and Community Response category for exceptional contributions alongside Microsoft for customers.

Recognized by Microsoft for the fourth consecutive year, Accela was honored among a field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.

Digitization is critical to keeping government agencies operating and agile. The global cloud market for government is expected to reach $49.2 billion by the end of this year.

Accela modernizes state and local governments’ essential services – such as permitting, licensing, code enforcement and more – so agencies can support residents, businesses and staff.

Microsoft Azure is Accela’s partner cloud provider of choice for powering operations in cities, counties and states. Accela has helped more than 37 U.S. jurisdictions migrate to the cloud since 2021, with 17 more in the pipeline.

Powered by Microsoft Azure, Accela equips governments with the purpose-built SaaS solutions on a single, unified cloud platform to address their most pressing community development and regulatory needs, allowing for simplified resident experiences, data sharing across departments and security.

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Award honors partners that have used Microsoft-based solutions over the past calendar year in creative and impactful ways to benefit their customers. As a Social Impact and Community Response finalist, Accela has proven measurable benefits to customer operations, most specifically with community development, disaster and climate solutions.

Accela previously has been recognized as a Microsoft Partner of the Year in the Community Response: COVID Solutions, US Government, and Social Impact and Community Response categories.

The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards are announced annually prior to the company’s global partner conference, Microsoft Inspire, which will take place on July 18-19 this year. Additional details on the 2023 awards are available on the US Partner Community Blog here: US Partner Community Blog.
