More than 1,000 iPads and a smooth voting process – that was the result of the first digital voting process at the CDU party conference 2019 with the software solution of G+B Interactive®.
GAHRENS + BATTERMANN has been offering digital event solutions since 2010 and has successfully implemented more than 3,000 events since then. Also at this year’s federal party conference of the CDU, the G+B team impressed the audience with the digital voting system, which significantly simplified the otherwise analogous voting process.
Using iPad, the delegates in Leipzig voted digitally and were very satisfied, as all elections went quickly and smoothly. Not only were the votes digitized, but the application book, as thick as a telephone book, was also dispensed with, as it was also digitally displayed and even updated live. More than 40 documents could thus be exchanged during live operation, for example when motions were reworded. The digital solution not only saved time, but also the need to print out the documents again, which saved a lot of paper. A real relief and a step towards a digital and sustainable future.
“We are proud to have taken the first step towards the digitalization of the party congress together with the CDU. The digital voting and speaking time saved more than an hour. In addition, content such as reworded amendments, resolutions and other documents could be updated live. The delegates were pleased with the up-to-date information, with less paper and therefore accepted the tablets extremely well. All in all, it was a successful project and a very good cooperation with the entire CDU team,” said Alexander Klein and Leon Schönberg of G+B Interactive®.
