Electoral Commission counted on SFW-built web application during EU referendum

The Electoral Commission (EC) deployed an SFW-built web application in its support of the EU referendum, using the platform to speed up notification, review and analysis of the count on the night of the vote.

Built from scratch in 12 weeks, the new count collation system kept track of all the count data input across the UK and Gibraltar in real time, before the final result was declared at the national collation centre in Manchester.

As well as the central EC team, over 700 users used the system across all 382 regional counting areas. Additionally, a data feed was provided for key media organisations allowing them to receive up to the minute and verified data throughout the process.

Phil Tucker, EC Head of ICT & Facilities, said: "The Commission developed a close working relationship with SFW and we found them extremely responsive during all phases of the project. Users inside and outside the Commission praised the system for its ease of use and clear presentation of information on the count."
