The City of Taunton is in Bristol County, Massachusetts, approximately 40 miles south of Boston. Founded in 1637 by members of the Plymouth Colony, Taunton is one of the oldest towns in the United States. Also known as the Silver City, Taunton was a historic center of the silver industry beginning in the 19th century.
Taunton had difficulties with its legacy technology. Its internal database for permitting and billing stored historical data but didn’t allow citizens to submit applications and payments online. Users couldn’t track permit statuses, and larger projects required visiting multiple buildings for signatures.
Taunton wanted a modern solution to better serve its citizens and satisfy their demands for online convenience. The system needed to process permits and accept online payments. And because it had limited in-house staff to dedicate to such a large project, Taunton partnered with Vision33 to implement the Accela Civic Platform.
Vision33’s eGovernment practice delivers the right approach, expertise, and people to empower government clients to succeed with technology. Partnering with Vision33 enables government agencies to deliver services efficiently, reduce costs, and improve citizen satisfaction.
The Accela Civic Platform is a powerful cloud-based software solution that accelerates growth, efficiency, and transparency and allows governments to improve citizen services and fulfill the needs of growing communities.
With Vision33 as its experienced partner, Taunton worked through issues quickly and transitioned to the Accela Civic Platform. A citizen access portal enables several types of permitting, and additional online services are continually rolled out.
Now that Taunton has modernized its technology, users have 24/7 online access to apply for permits, pay fees, and check application statuses. And with the Accela Civic Platform’s flexibility and scalability, Taunton is ready to address citizens’ needs today and well into the future.
