This agreement will enable TMA Resources to leverage Votenet’s Web-based election product, eBallot, by extending it to TIMSS users.
“Our customers are increasingly interested in moving more member services online,” said Edi Dor, TMA Resources President and CEO. “TIMSS has already helped hundreds of associations migrate membership management functions to the Web,” continued Dor, “and now through this strategic partnership with Votenet, we can help our clients take advantage of the tremendous efficiencies and cost savings of online elections.”
eBallot offers several benefits to associations, including: · Convenient voting for association members · Improved voter turnout and participation · Compliance and error checking to ensure ballots are correct · Real-time reports
