SAN RAMON, Calif., Oct. 24, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based productivity and civic engagement solutions for government, today announced that the City of Fort Lauderdale, FL, has chosen multiple solutions on the Accela Civic Platform to enhance workflows through automated services and make publicly available information more accessible to citizens.

"Fort Lauderdale was looking to provide businesses, residents and staff a more efficient way to interact and transact on their terms—through mobile and digital means. They took note of the success some of their neighboring cities, such as Tampa, were having in streamlining civic process with technology, and we're thrilled they selected the Accela Civic Platform to help them meet their needs," said Mark Jung, Chairman and acting CEO of Accela.
