Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
QuickSilk is pleased to announce the recent launch of the iVote-jeVote website, a youth democratic engagement event website with the express goal of bringing together Canada's national political leaders to challenge them to motivate youth to get involved in the political process. The iVote-jeVote website is sponsored by the Jean-Luc Pepin (JLP) Research Chair, Faculty of Social Sciences, at the University of Ottawa.
Sahir Khan of uOttawa’s JLP Research Chair said: “We were very pleased to work with Quicksilk on this important initiative. Because of the limited time available to launch the website, it was paramount to have a web-based solution that was cost effective, rapidly deployed and easy to use. QuickSilk's website development and content management system satisfied all of our requirements. He added : “Perhaps, we are most proud of the fact that the process was managed entirely by the JLP’s undergraduate army of student volunteers.”
"We are very excited to work with the Jean-Luc Pepin Research Chair, and JLP's student volunteers, on such an important national youth initiative", stated Garry Brownrigg, President & CEO of QuickSilk. "Including the development of two custom plug-ins, we were able to integrate a custom design, build, populate the content and deploy the iVote-jeVote website in less than 30 hours, using our proprietary Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. Going forward, JLP's student volunteers can now self manage all aspects of their iVote-jeVote website".
