Barcelona & London, January 30, 2015Scytl, worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernisation technology and Halarose, a trusted supplier of cutting-edge election management software in the UK, will be sharing insight on helping to bring efficiencies to electoral administrators in time for the May 2015 elections during the AEA Conference in Brighton February 1-4, 2015.

With the UK parliamentary election and local elections in England around the corner, electoral administrators will be facing some of the biggest election challenges to date. With greater hurdles and fewer resources, the need to plan, deploy and manage efficient and cost-effective electoral processes is key.

Halarose and Scytl, both leading suppliers of proven technology solutions for the electoral industry are working together to help UK election administrators be prepared for one of the highest profile UK elections in years. Their combined expertise in providing proven solutions for online training for polling station staff via Election Trainer and election results consolidation and display via Election Count Reporting will help the industry meet the upcoming election challenges in these areas with confidence. They provide access to the only platform that maintains a truly consistent approach that is in keeping with the UK Electoral Commission guidelines.

Halarose and Scytl combined, will be sharing insights into best practices and customer experiences from both the UK and across Europe on how to:

  • Improve election office productivity by optimizing the training of polling station staff via web-based interactive channels, providing a more efficient learning experience with repeatable exercises and an online assessment. Local authorities such as Leicester City Council, West Berkshire, Stratford, Warwick and Cornwall are already leveraging the efficiencies provided by a modern and interactive polling station worker learning experience.
  • Secure, accurate, scalable and more time-efficient display of election results at the count centre and online (once approved by the Returning Officer) via a user-friendly and intuitive graphical interface that is designed to fit with existing authorities’ webpage designs. This election count reporting solution was recently used to provide the 2014 EU Parliamentary Elections with outstanding efficiencies in project delivery and infrastructure scalability with over 4.7 million visits on May 26th 2014 alone, collecting results from over 150 million Europeans eligible to vote across the 28 member states, 751 electoral seats managed and more than 275 global media outlets leveraging the data and election results widget.
