Accela, the leading provider of cloud-based productivity and civic engagement solutions for government, and Byrne Software Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of consulting and technology solutions, today announced the State of Missouri’s Public Service Commission will implement Accela Land Management on the Civic Platform. By leveraging a robust cloud platform and best-in-class implementation services through Byrne Software, the State of Missouri is poised to simplify and automate the interminable housing, permitting and inspection processes and increase engagement with citizens.

“With the Accela Civic Platform, we believe the State of Missouri will increase productivity and engagement across all activities associated with permitting, licensing and inspections,” said Max Schnoedl, Chief Operating Officer for Accela. “Our partner, Byrne Software will be instrumental in ensuring a smooth deployment of the Civic Platform across the State.”

Administration offices, manufacturers, installers, inspectors and the general public will have direct access to the automated Accela Land Management system, which aims to provide further transparency into the process of regulating manufactured homes and modular units. Citizens will be able to access the Accela web-based portal to apply for permits, licensing, inspections, file service requests and track statuses of these activities.
