Election Specific Project Planning
Scytl Election Planning is the only election-centric planning product on the market. It was developed based on the needs of election officials and their staff to optimize communications and workflows and provide interactive data through a web-based, configurable platform. Scytl Election Planning is pre-loaded with an election project plan, easing the burden of loading the large number of complex tasks associated with any election.
Improved Planning Process
Scytl Election Planning is 100% web-based and available in multiple languages. It easily syncs with other popular project management tools to import and export tasks and projects. Scytl Election Planning is delivered as a hosted solution so all hardware and software burdens are the responsibility of Scytl.
Scytl Election Planning is an intuitive platform that makes team collaboration hassle-free and straightforward. Before, during, or after elections, seeing which tasks are in danger of falling behind or areas that need additional help are crucial for any elections office. Scytl Election Planning provides complete reporting capability on any data field within the entire platform.
Real-time Visibility of Progress
Election offices can check the status of various departments and projects at any time, including vendor preparation, statutory requirements, and customer preferences through a graphically appealing and intuitive design.
Detailed Project Information
Interactive and personalized calendars enable users to drill down on specific tasks for more information and to look at an individual day, week, month, or even an entire year of tasks. Scytl Election Planning provides vision into the health of an organization with executive dashboards tied into every project and resource.
Status Reporting and Task Tracking
Help ensure election offices never miss an important date or deadline through the use of user-defined email alerts. This feature is designed to alert staff or managers through email when a task is scheduled to start or the status of a task has changed.
Monitor Workload and Cost
Managers are able to determine if resources are being used effectively and view the effects of resource decisions on the outcome of specific events. Burden rates for each resource may also be set to help determine actual cost for each task involved in conducting elections.
Scytl Election Planning requires authentication for election officers to access the application. Authentication is based on a “Least Privileges” policy and uses a Role Based Access Control model. Strong security controls are in place to detect and ensure unauthorized persons are not able to gain access to the application.
Scytl products and applications use a proprietary technology named “Immutable logs” which prevents log files from being modified. Immutable logs are cryptographically protected through a patented technology to ensure it is not possible for these to be tampered with. This technology combines cryptographic HMAC techniques, digital signatures, random and temporary cryptographic secret keys, and short-time checkpoints to create a secure chain of logs that can be verified by an auditor.
