Scytl Online Voting Helps Iceland Successfully Run Fully Online Referendums

Scytl Online Voting Helps Iceland Successfully Run Fully Online Referendums

Scytl Online Voting in Iceland

Barcelona & Reykjavik (PRWEB UK) 12 May 2015

Scytl, the worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernization, announces the successful deployment of the first ever fully online residents referendum in Iceland. This first online referendum took place in the municipality of Ölfus with a participation rate of 43% of the municipality´s residents (age 16+), a clear demonstration of the possibility to leverage the online channel for more participatory, agile and secure referendums.

The online citizen referendum held in the municipality of Ölfus is the first of the future online referendums that will take place across selected municipalities in Iceland. As part of the country´s strategic initiative to create a more agile and participatory electoral process, Þjóðskrá Íslands (Registers Iceland) – the office under the Ministry of the Interior which among other things maintains the national register and authentication service for all citizens which was used in the election – began an online citizen referendum program aimed at streamlining the path to online voting in the country.

“The execution of the election in Ölfus was very successful and the participation was good. We are looking forward to working with Scytl on the second pilot election in a bigger municipality,” said Margrét Hauksdóttir Director General of Registers Iceland.

In general, the participation percentage increased in the older age groups, with the participation of men over 75 surpassing the 63% participation rate. Gunnsteinn Ómarsson, Mayor of Ölfus comments, “We were a bit worried about how the older people would feel about eVoting, but it turned out they were quite ready for it! This is an excellent way to consult the population quickly and efficiently.”

As ongoing experiences and reports around the globe indicate, the leverage of secure online channels has a positive influence in increasing citizen engagement. The recently published report “Effects of the Internet on Participation: Study of a Public Policy Referendum in Brazil” documents an 8.2% increase in total turn-out with the introduction of online voting.

The online referendum implemented by Iceland provides the highest security levels available today and ensures voter privacy, strong voter authentication, the integrity of the referendum results and voter verifiability and auditability. All while providing user-friendly and accessible voting for its citizens. In the case of the Ölfus municipality:

The citizens online referendum took place between March 17 – 26, 2015.
The voting centered on whether Ölfus should enter negotiations with other municipalities for a possible merger and on a date for a popular festival in Ölfus.
Citizen participation rate surpassed the 43% mark.
For citizens with no access to the internet, the municipality provided access to computers with internet connection and help as needed at the Municipal Library.

“Scytl is extremely proud of the opportunity to continue to support the enablement of a modern and secure electoral process in Iceland with our experience and state-of-the art online voting technology. Being selected by Iceland to support these initiatives as a flagship in global electoral processes once again reinforces our focus on increasing and improving participatory democracy, citizen empowerment and public transparency via innovative online technology,” concludes Pere Valles, CEO of Scytl.

MinuteHound Releases New Software That Helps Bike Messengers Keep on Track and on Time

MinuteHound Releases New Software That Helps Bike Messengers Keep on Track and on Time

MinuteHound Cloud Based Attendance Software

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 2013

MinuteHound is excited to release a new product dedicated to efficiently maintaining a fleet of bicycles while keeping costs low. The new program ensures riders complete timely deliveries while also reducing waste. Using the time clock software is a cost-effective method of providing rapid delivery and maintaining accountability in urban environments clogged by excessive traffic. The program also allows individual riders to operate their own businesses successfully as sole proprietors.

Necessarily, the speed with which deliveries are made, the most efficient use of time, and accuracy are the three chief attributes in the competitive marketplace. After all, the services provided are largely the same. MinuteHound’s timeclock software and fingerprint scanner are already a fixture at many businesses looking to reduce the costs of timecard fraud, inaccurate payroll, and record keeping supplies. Bicycle messengers and deliverers offer a new and interesting way to use their excellent equipment.

MinuteHound touts its plug-and-play design, which makes the system not only easy but also flexible. The fingerprint scanner plugs into any computer with a USB port. Another advantage is that it maintains its time information in the cloud; managers can access it from any computer with an Internet connection. Combining these two advantages with the portability of an Internet-capable, full-sized laptop make MinuteHound’s software portable, which is ideal for riders on bikes. The scanner gets its power through the USB connection, so a laptop outfitted with a Windows operating system will fire it up as soon as it is connected.

MinuteHound states the idea is for the rider to arrive, make his or her item or information delivery, and then scan his or her fingerprint to mark the exact time. It is also a simple matter to add signature gathering software on the laptop; this has the added benefit of creating not only an easy-to-manage manifest but also ready-made performance assessments on timeliness and accuracy, which, in turn, provide instant testimonials on the performance of both the business and the rider. Both riders and businesses can use the generated data to prove their timeliness and accuracy whenever they advertise to new clientele. No matter how trustworthy or personable someone is in convincing someone of something, nothing beats cold, hard facts and performance reports.

MinuteHound’s software still has the same additional features that have made it as popular as it is in the business world. It still has 128-bit encryption for the scanned fingerprints and still breaks up the scanned fingerprint data into four distinct packets and sends them to servers in four different locations. The system also maintains accurate payroll information for either hourly or “by delivery” payment. Employee vacation tracking is also easy by using an online based application.

Redemtech Helps KINfolk Connect Seriously Ill Children with Outside World

Redemtech Helps KINfolk Connect Seriously Ill Children with Outside World

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 9, 2008 -–

Redemtech, (, a world leader in IT asset disposition and Technology Change Management (TCM) services, is helping KINfolk and a top five pharmaceutical corporation expand the drug company’s laptop computer donations program to benefit seriously ill children. KINfolk is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

Based on the success of similar contributions in the past, the pharmaceutical company will donate 100 additional IBM T41 computers to KINfolk, with most of the units provided to young patients at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. KINfolk, based in Wilmington, Del., uses technology such as laptop computers and Internet access to help connect seriously ill children to their families, friends and other online opportunities.

Redemtech, which is the first commercial Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher (CMAR) in North America, will install Windows XP Professional operating systems (OS) and the Microsoft Office Suite on all of the donated laptops for a $ 5 administration fee per software application.

“This latest donation will allow more than 5,000 ill and injured children annually—who otherwise may not have had the opportunity—to communicate with the outside world,” said Robert Houghton, president and CEO of Redemtech. “Providing laptops for these young patients truly reinforces the value that a donation program can have for others.”

Because Redemtech has been able to minimize OS and imaging costs, KINfolk is able to use grants and funding to expand their valuable service to additional homes and facilities throughout the country.

“Everyone from young children to parents can use the computers to stay in touch with the outside world—whether they are communicating with friends, providing updates on the child’s condition, paying bills or keeping pace with school work,” said Melinda McGuigan, KINfolk’s executive director.

Redemtech worked with KINfolk to provide the specifications for the PCs received and the OS installed to complete the paperwork required to ensure eligibility in the Community Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher program.

KINfolk participates in Redemtech’s TakeBack program, which provides free asset recovery and recycling services at the donated systems’ end of life. The program not only saves recycling fees, but it ensures the electronic waste is disposed of in a safe manner.

“We believe that all IT equipment should be recycled, and this type of contribution enables companies of all sizes to put outdated equipment to use to meet others’ needs,” McGuigan said.
