ERS definitely provided excellent service for our election process, running smoothly from start to finish. They provided expert advice and support throughout and were responsive to queries. We felt that ERS provided excellent value for money for a service that was professional and of such high quality.

This was the first time I have been involved with Governor Elections here at the Foundation Trust. The team at ERS gave us excellent advice from start to finish.

Fantastic! Once again ERS have exceeded our expectations! A first class job and a first class team. Special mention must go to the Sector Manager who ensures the job is done to such a high standard and our Project Manager who once again was just an absolute superstar! She is always available, responds to queries immediately and generally looks after us. She is like an extended part of the election team and she makes my job so much easier.

Working with the ERS team was a very positive and enjoyable experience. They quickly grasped our vision to deliver a voting website that would be secure, intuitive and engaging and they made sure it would work seamlessly with our corporate site. We were delighted with the end result and grateful for their knowledgeable approach to managing our data and the count. Turnout was in line with expectations, but the percentage of votes cast online went up from 24 per cent to 27.5 per cent. I am sure the design of the new website played a part in this.

Fantastic - I had no idea how to handle elections, but from the very first conversation I was filled with confidence that ERS would help us to achieve what we needed to. They were calm and knowledgeable throughout.
