News : Bernalillo County Selects Accela Civic Platform
San Ramon, CA, Jan 14, 2014 -- Accela, Inc., a provider of civic engagement solutions for government agencies, announces that Bernalillo County, New Mexico, replaced its existing solution with the Accela Civic Platform for Land Management. With a population of over 642,000, Bernalillo County is the most populous county in New Mexico. Located in central New Mexico, Bernalillo County is home to Albuquerque and serves as a major economic and cultural crossroads in the American Southwest. The county consists of an area of nearly 1200 square miles.
The Accela Civic Platform will give the County the ability to offer a number of services online to benefit both residents and agency employees, in turn enhancing communication with citizens, reducing agency costs and streamlining key government processes. The public can now have access to plan review comments, inspection history, land data, interactive GIS maps and can easily generate reports of newly created record permits and activities based on record and time parameters selected by the user.
"We were looking for a more up-to-date technology solution to help us provide more efficient services to our citizens, while enhancing productivity for employees in the office and in the field," said Rene Sedillo, Planning and Development Technology Manager for Bernalillo County. "The Accela Civic Platform gives us additional functionality to support document review and GIS capabilities in addition to mobile apps, and is aligned with our commitment to provide transparency and robust online services for our constituents. Plus, we can easily add and deploy additional solutions in the future."
