It is common knowledge that trust is a major determining factor in election execution anywhere in the world. First, there must be trust in the system to be used in conducting the voting. Otherwise, the result of such an election will be contested and could even deteriorate into a major internal dispute. Over the years, a major concern from intending clients for VOTA is knowing if the system can be trusted to conduct a transparent and credible election. The assurance of a credible election is one of the dividends you get when you deploy VOTA for your election.
Now, we pride ourselves in having our footprint across top organizations like The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), The Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN), Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria (NIMN), CBN Multipurpose Cooperative, NNPC Staff Cooperative Multipurpose Society, and many more. We must confess that the reputation wasn’t built overnight. Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that we earn clients’ resolute trust and we keep safeguarding it every time.
So, we thought to share with you how VOTA has earned this credibility over the years.
1. We’re Not the New Kid on the Block
One factor that has given us leverage is that we’ve been in the business of providing reliable tech solutions for years.
VOTA is powered by Chamsmobile, a subsidiary of Chams Plc, a Nigerian tech company with about 37 years of experience in the IT space. Undeniably, the name has helped to create assurance in prospective clients’ minds. Although our reputation has helped to open some doors, we match up this energy by exceeding the expectations of our clients. VOTA has been delivering quality e-voting solutions for the past 9 years and more than 1 million votes have been cast on the platform.
2. Use of Modern Security Features
Let’s just say VOTA is as safe as Fort Knox. The e-voting solution is built with modern security features in compliance with global standards, thus mitigating various cyber threats. VOTA is protected via multiple layers of security; Application Security, Network Firewall, Operating System Firewall/Port Security, as well as Database Security (Encryption). All users’ data that are collected and processed by VOTA are fully protected to avoid any form of data breach. These security features have been tested, proven over the years and judged excellent by our clients. With these and more in place, we have never recorded any breach before, during and after any election.
3. Two-Factor Authentication
E-voting with VOTA also comes with an extra layer of security for the users. Voting credentials are unique to every voter and cannot be accessed by a 3rd party. This helps to protect them against information theft or impersonation. Hence, everyone knows that his/her vote counts.
4. Partnership with Clients
We understand that the need of every client is unique, and that is why we work hand-in-hand to accomplish it. One beautiful thing about VOTA is that it is not a straitjacket solution. We partner with the clients to understand their peculiar needs and identify the best approach to meeting them.
5. Speed and Accuracy of result processing
Election results are processed using cloud-based technology which makes results to be readily available, as there is no need for manual collation of results. This seamless experience has further boosted users’ confidence in the entire voting process.
We could not have achieved any of these feats single-handedly. Yes, we are on a quest for excellence, but the objective feedback from our clients has also helped us to improve. Click here to read what our clients have to say about VOTA.
