Electronic voting system

The Parliamentary Information System is a technological tool based on mobile devices with iOS or Android operating systems, which gives to congressmen the necessary information to carry out the parliamentary work.

The solution has 8 basic modules and can be customized to any local congress at the state or municipal level, in order to assist in the process of saving and transparency of the legislative systems.

The types of biometric authentication technologies available:

  • Fingerprint recognition.
  • Facial recognition. (Soon)
  • Voice recognition. (Soon)

The 8 modules of the solution are:

  •  Program
  • Agenda.
  • Attendance.
  • Dictums to vote.
  • Parliamentary Gazzete.
  • Directory.
