Still the original and the best mobile canvassing solution on the market. With the introduction of IER, Democracy Counts recognised that local authorities were being tasked with carrying out a more resource intensive process. The IER process meant having to move from tracking households, to tracking households and every elector within that household at varying stages.
Local Authorities now have to contact and communicate with their electors to a much greater extent, and the audit trail and management requirements of this process have become much more difficult. The canvass process is simplified by managing HEFs and ITRs in one step. With On or Off line modes to combat any network coverage issues, we have flexible data security options to fit any of your data policies. The canvassers can keep track of where each individual is up to in the IER process. EROs can log into the Particip8 Portal and run reports to review the performance of canvassers and the data that they have collected in real time as soon as it's happened. Particip8 is more than just canvassing. We at Democracy Counts want you to use our software all year round, not just for the traditional canvass period.
Perfect integration to Elector8 and 2 step integration with Idox and Xpress will provide you with the best integration to the limit of their functionality.

Elector8 does the 'donkey work' automatically leaving you and your team to perform the value added tasks of finding new electors and verifying them. Elector8 was the first EMS software to offer self service for staff in 2012, then we introducred self service for candidates and agents in 2015 and finally citizens in 2018. By allowing stakeholders to self serve your team will be managing by exception rather than the rule.
Elector8 will adapt and evolve to suit your processes in whatever form they take. Important features that will benefit you from day one include:
Create intelligent, automated communication through the use of workflows.
Full integration with Gov.Notify for lower cost communications
Self service in staffing, candidates / agents and citizens
Save 50% on administration time during canvass.
Automate your monthly updates sent to interested parties.
Print ballot box reports in matched sets.
We understand that the 2020 canvass reform changes brought new challenges for electoral services teams. That's why we ensured our Canvass Reform software changes were released to our customers in June 2020, having been through extensive user-testing in the months before this. This has given sufficient time for our customers to be trained on the new functionality and become familiar and comfortable with the changes before commencing their uploads to Cabinet Office.
We haven't just delivered the scope of the required legislative changes, we've gone further: with Elector8 you can chart the cost of your canvass in real-time and even make projections on potential savings through modelling the use of different engagement processes.
Just as with IER in 2014, we were the first EMS supplier to deliver these changes to our clients - allowing them more time to focus on the delivery planning of the new canvass in 2020.
