zedIT Solutions (zedIT), a provider of Information Technology services, today announced a partnership with Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based civic engagement solutions for government. Last month, the companies jointly embarked on a multi-city road-show throughout Massachusetts to showcase Accela’s software solutions and zedIT’s implementation capabilities for customers interested in upgrading from the GeoTMS product to the modern, cloud-based Accela Civic Platform.

Accela acquired GeoTMS, a provider of municipal software solutions to more than 100 agencies in the United States, in 2014. With this acquisition, GeoTMS customers now have a rare opportunity to modernize their municipal services and citizen engagement with a fast and affordable upgrade to the Accela Civic Platform. In addition to managing an agency’s planning, zoning, permitting, inspections, code enforcement, and business licensing processes, customers will be able to take advantage of other Civic Platform solutions, including:

  •     Asset Management
  •     Land Management
  •     Right of Way Management
  •     Legislative Management
  •     Recreation and Resource Management
  •     Citizen Relationship Management
  •     Environmental Health and Safety
  •     Licensing and Case Management
  •     Finance and Administration

Additional benefits of the all-inclusive Civic Platform subscription include increased mobile capabilities for inspectors across all mobile platforms, greater online capabilities for citizens, advanced mapping and reporting functions, and built-in, real-time auto data publishing to CivicData.com, Accela’s free open data portal. Additional information on the Civic Platform’s solutions can be found at http://www.accela.com/solutions.

“At zedIT, we pride ourselves on our relationships with the foremost technology innovators in every industry segment and our longstanding service to leading business and government organizations,” said Derek Porter, Account Manager, zedIT Solutions. “Accela’s unparalleled breadth of cloud-based civic engagement solutions – combined with its demonstrated commitment to the region – made it the clear choice for zedIT in this space. We look forward to adding Accela’s top-of-the-line offerings to our existing portfolio.”

zedIT-Accela Partnership

The partnership between zedIT and Accela follows collaboration between the two companies that spans several years. Working together, zedIT has provided services on such Accela implementations as the State of Massachusetts, Cape Cod Commission (Harwich, Provincetown), Newfoundland Department of Fisheries, and City of Milwaukee.

Leveraging its extensive experience in creating and implementing technology solutions in both the public and private sector, zedIT ensures a smooth implementation for any GeoTMS customer wishing to upgrade to the Accela Civic platform.

Implementing technology solutions has long been the hallmark of zedIT’s competitive offering. The company’s on-boarding process helps ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget while maintaining focus on agency end-user acceptance and adoption throughout the software implementation lifecycle. zedIT’s services in government agencies include licensing program development and implementations; land management program development and implementations; citizen access development; historical data conversions; and application development.

“With the acquisition of GeoTMS and our partnership with zedIT, we can more easily provide government agencies of all sizes the technology to modernize their services and better engage and serve citizens in ways customers have come to expect,” explains Ken Sawtelle, Director, Center of Excellence, Accela. “zedIT has extensive IT delivery experience that utilizes a practical on-boarding process, ensuring Accela customers get the best possible implementation experience possible, and we are pleased to expand our relationship with them.”
