With DirectVote 7.6 we’re able to further help organizations understand their members by providing them with a profile of those that vote, the most effective ways to reach them, and their behavioral characteristics.

Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS), a leading provider of election services and secure Internet voting systems, today announced the launch of DirectVote 7.6, the latest update to its flagship voting service DirectVote. Version 7.6 allows organizations to implement custom online elections while gaining important insights about member behavior and tendencies.    

Updates to the online voting service, based on voter data and user feedback, include:

  •     Device and browser detection – Informs election managers on the types of devices and software used to access voting; allowing organizations to understand the best ways to encourage interaction and reach members.
  •     Controlled member timeouts – Giving organizations the power to warn voters if their session is about to expire and the ability to customize these notifications.
  •     Advanced tracking – Enabling organizations to identify geographic hot spots for voting, track quick response code participation and detect when the election or voting event is made known through social media promotion.    

“Elections provide a distinctive snapshot of membership,” states Jon Westerhaus, President at SBS. “With DirectVote 7.6 we’re able to further help organizations understand their members by providing them with a profile of those that vote, the most effective ways to reach them, and their behavioral characteristics. This type of information is not only important for election managers but should supply the organization with a picture of member demographics and trends that can be used for strategic planning.”
