Washington, D.C., July 14, 2008 - Continuing its strong momentum in advancing Web-based voting technology, Votenet™ Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of secure online voting and nomination solutions for associations, corporations, law firms, non-profits, universities and organizations, today introduced eBallot Mobile™, the first and only online election solution to offer an optimized voting experience for voters wishing to cast ballots via mobile devices including Blackberries and iPhones.
"Law firms are increasingly relying on Blackberries to conduct business. Likewise, associations see a growing trend in their membership's reliance on mobile devices. We recognize that we're in a mobile world," commented Raj Naik, Vice President, Votenet Solutions, Inc. "Our clients conduct important partner and leadership elections that often have narrow timelines. If a voter is traveling or away from a computer, they might not be able to participate. Now, thanks to our mobile solution, organizations can boost their turnout by extending their voting booths to these mobile voters."
This mobile solution is hassle-free and easy to use, and requires no server or equipment installation. It's a seamless extension of the eBallot solution and is specifically optimized by size, content, and presentation to work well with the smaller screens and variety of software used by mobile devices. Graphical images are kept at a minimum to facilitate fast loading of Web pages and easy navigation.
eBallot Mobile includes eBallot's extensive security measures including independent third party certifications, SSL encryption, and the highest levels of data security and application hosting. The integration of the mobile version with eBallot ensures that voters who cast ballots using the mobile version will not be able to cast a vote in the Web version and vice versa. All votes cast via a mobile device are automatically added to the voting database in real-time, facilitating up-to-the-minute, 100% accurate tracking and reporting.
"eBallot Mobile represents the evolution of voting technology. Not only is it the ultimate convenience for professionals who can't always access a computer, but eBallot Mobile provides organizations the opportunity to gather feedback from any number of participants within minutes, crucial for last minute decision-making. We are pleased to offer mobile voting to our customer base and further our commitment to providing secure web-based voting anywhere in the world," stated Michael Tuteur, Chief Executive Officer and President, Votenet Solutions, Inc.
