Several departments will use the solution to streamline land management processes and provide Adams County citizens and the local development community with a user-friendly, easily accessible system for conducting business via the Internet.

It is built on the ArcIMS™ platform by ESRI®.

Accela Wireless™ is a mobile government software application that allows government staff to perform their jobs from the field for inspections, code enforcement, work orders, and service requests.
