Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Accela Inc. has signed an agreement with Al Moammar Information Systems Co. (MIS), allowing MIS to serve as Accela’s reseller in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The contract links Accela, the US-based provider of government software applications, with Saudi Arabia’s reseller and integrator of information technology. The deal will help expand Accela’s presence in the Middle East, where the company has been serving a growing roster of government agencies from its regional headquarters in the United Arab Emirates.
“Saudi Arabia today has one of the most dynamic economies in one of the world’s most dynamic regions,” said Accela CEO and President Maury Blackman. “Through our relationship with a top-shelf company like MIS, which offers strong capabilities and extensive experience in the government sector, we look forward to bringing Accela’s advanced technology to the kingdom, and helping its governments to achieve their goals for efficiency and innovation.”
“At MIS, 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 Khalid Al Moammar, President of MIS. “We know that the Saudi government market is primed and ready for the kind of integrated, e-government solutions that Accela delivers.”
Under terms of the agreement, MIS will have rights to resell Accela’s flagship, Web-based enterprise software application, Accela Automation, which is used by governments to automate critical tasks associated with permitting, licensing, code enforcement, community development and planning, inspections and investigations, infrastructure asset management, emergency response, and more. Accela Automation provides governments with a solution to integrate with their GIS systems, empower their mobile workers, and offer 24/7 access to services via the Web or interactive voice response. The software is available in a completely localised Arabic version that supports regional norms for date formats, currency symbols, and text layout.
