HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Virginia Board of Accountancy (VBOA) has selected MicroPact, the global leader in Data-First™ case management and business process management (BPM) software, to deploy the entellitrak®-based ETK Regulatory product to manage its program of licensure and compliance of CPAs and CPA firms. Virginia will be the fourth state agency this year to select ETK Regulatory, the re-platformed version of MicroPact’s proven CAVU eLicense and STAR Financial products currently used by 65 state agencies nationwide. The SaaS solution will be hosted in MicroPact’s secure, FedRAMPSM certified data center.
ETK Regulatory consolidates all examination, licensing, and enforcement activities into a single application to improve transparency and efficiency for any regulatory agency. Using a secure web portal, individuals and entities can apply for and renew licenses, submit payments, and upload supporting documents. Likewise, citizens can research licensees, submit inquiries, and file complaints.
“In looking to replace our current system, my vision was to create the gold standard for accounting licensing and enforcement systems,” said Wade A. Jewell, VBOA Executive Director. “MicroPact built us a prototype that reflected that vision and demonstrated that they can securely host the new solution. The system is extremely user friendly and customer service oriented (for exam candidates, licensees and the public, as well as our staff), and with ongoing maintenance and support from MicroPact, we will not need our own IT resources.”
“We’re excited to welcome the VBOA into the community of state regulatory agencies that we serve,” said Kris Collo, CEO of MicroPact. “MicroPact has the passion and technology that is transforming government, as evidenced by the rapid adoption of ETK Regulatory. Agencies are looking for low-code COTS solutions backed by strong domain expertise.”
In order for MicroPact to host the new solution for the VBOA in its secure cloud environment, both the entellitrak platform and MicroPact’s data center had to pass the Virginia Information Technologies Agency’s (VITA’s) rigorous approval process. The entellitrak platform and hosting environment are FedRAMP-certified at the FIPS-199 “Moderate” level. The platform is also accredited and secure with Certifications & Accreditations based on NIST 800-53, DIACAP and DCID 6/3.
