State of Alaska Selects Gov2Biz to Transform Alcohol and Marijuana Licensing & Enforcement

San Antonio, TX, March 2023 – The State of Alaska’s Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office (AMCO) has chosen Gov2Biz Inc., a leading provider of licensing and regulatory management SaaS software for government agencies, to digitize its licensing and enforcement operations for alcohol and cannabis.

The Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office is an agency housed within the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development (DCCED), tasked with enforcing alcohol and marijuana commerce laws.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with AMCO, in revolutionizing the licensing and regulation of alcohol and cannabis in Alaska. This streamlines the process for licensees to conduct business with AMCO, facilitating the adoption of Title 4, which essentially restructures the entire alcoholic beverage control code in Alaska “, said Karthik Agarwal, CEO of Gov2Biz.” In our experience working with other state governments, the modernization of licensing and enforcement processes generates significant increases in the operational efficiency and productivity of regulatory bodies. We look forward to seeing similar outcomes in AMCO as well.”

Gov2Biz’s licensing and regulatory SaaS suite will equip AMCO and its constituents with a digital platform for seamless licensing and enforcement processes. The system dubbed Alaska Alcohol and Cannabis Control Information System (“AK_ACCIS”) is slated to be live for Alcoholic Beverage licensing by the fall of 2023, and for Cannabis licensing shortly after. AK_ACCIS will offer a modern, centralized web portal for online applications, endorsements, renewals, and payments; enabling businesses to manage their licenses entirely electronically. AK_ACCIS will also accelerate application processing and streamline enforcement, eliminating hours of manual work for AMCO staff.

“Our collaboration with Gov2Biz is a crucial step in enhancing our digital capabilities and bringing AMCO to the 21st century,” said Joan Wilson, Executive Director of AMCO. “AK_ACCIS will allow us to make decisions swiftly and deliver prompt, high-quality customer service to our licensees, ultimately helping us achieve our mission to enforce alcohol and marijuana commerce laws and protect the public from harm.”
