BARCELONA, Spain - Friday, May 10th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Scytl, the worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernization, today announced the launch of its e-Election Platform, the core of the industry´s first and only end-to-end election modernization solution. Supporting market needs toward more efficient election management, the platform has been developed specifically for election processes and covers the full election cycle (Pre-election, Election Day and Post-election), providing both electoral bodies and voters the most secure, transparent, auditable and accessible solution in the marketplace.
Scytl´s e-Election Platform offers complete functionality for each stage of the election cycle:
Pre-election - voter registration, voter education, poll worker training, logistical planning, and configuration.
Election Day - voter list management, kiosk voting, phone voting, paper voting, help desk, and a control dashboard. In addition to these, there are modules specifically tailored for overseas and remote voters, via the web, phone, or electronic ballot delivery.
Post-election - results tallying, consolidation, election night reporting, and auditing.
Scytl´s modular configuration allows customers to initially deploy any module needed and use a "grow-as-you-need” approach over time, providing them with a personalized election modernization roadmap. The fully integrated solution is built to ensure data integrity and process integration allowing full visibility across election cycles and integration with third party hardware & software solutions as well as legacy systems.
"Our e-Election Platform allows our customers to take their existing election processes to the next level by providing more agility and efficiency coupled with the highest level of security,” comments Pere Valles, CEO Scytl. "Our end-to-end election modernization solution allows for complete election management functionality, simplified management and support, improved data integrity with maximum security, transparency and accessibility.”
With secure online voting and election management implementations worldwide, Scytl´s platform approach has been positively embraced by existing and new customers. The 2013 Ecuadorian Elections by the Electoral Commission of Ecuador is a clear example of the election modernization full lifecycle implementation of the Scytl e-Election Platform. The National Election Commission was able to manage 4 elections simultaneously, the electoral register for over 11 million voters, the management of political parties and candidates, the training of polling station workers, the control of election expenditures and the technical assistance to over 40,000 polling stations, and finally, publishing the official results in just a few hours after the closing of the polls by scanning and electronically transmitting over 160,000 polling station reports.
"Scytl´s security background , experience, market leadership and ongoing investment in R&D ensures not only leading edge functionality, but also provisions end-to-end security across the full e-Election Platform,” says Jordi Puiggali, VP Research & Development Scytl. "Security and verifiability lead to transparency: the more secure and verifiablethe environment, the more transparent the process, a key factor customers are looking for. Using a variety of vendors, especially those that typically manage Pre-election and Post-election areas that focus on functionality, may leave an election process open to attack and vulnerability,” he concludes.
