Stockport based independent scrutineer and online voting specialist, UK Engage, has announced the launch of its live Conference Voting platform.
The Stockport firm’s live online voting system combines all the elements of different virtual meeting packages in one. The solution was developed in response to the increased demand for reputable, secure, and transparent online meeting voting at virtual meetings, following the coronavirus pandemic.
The platform allows attendees to see the presenter, submit questions or comments, watch the meeting presentation slides and vote (or re-vote) within an allotted voting period. It can be used for meetings where attendees would traditionally vote in-person, either in response to questions posed or for candidates for elected posts, with delegates able to vote for, against or abstain on a motion anonymously.
Andy Tye, General Manager of UK Engage said:
With the events of 2020 highlighting the need for more online meetings, especially where live democratic decisions need to be made, it is important that UK Engage is able to meet the market’s needs. With so many separate meeting software and voting platforms available on the market, we believe it is important to have a system that encompassed everything.”
Craig Poyser, Customer Service & Production Manager added:
Unlike other virtual meeting platforms on the market, Conference Voting gives customers the extra confidence of voter security, as it has actual accredited live voting technology at the heart of its functionality. Our system is based on encrypted communication and ensures complete separation of the voter ID and votes cast when generating results.”
UK Engage’s Conference Voting solution is available as a self or managed service, depending on the organisation’s requirements.
