Give your Councillors the freedom to submit their own Register of Interest...

The application has been designed to give councilors the freedom and flexibility to manage their own Register of Interests online.

Having multiple versions of spreadsheets or shuffling around piles of paperwork is not only time consuming, but can also leave an organisation vulnerable to human errors that are not easily spotted until it’s too late. 

Fulfill your council’s obligation to provide accessible information to the public online, with no integration between multiple sources of data, the time-consuming and laborious replication of data that may be required in order to get a holistic overview of all interests is now easily managed using one single platform. Furthermore, this resource-intensive process can often result in hours of work for an individual, with the bulk of this work coming at what is already an incredibly busy period in the democratic calendar.

The solution has been designed to fulfill a councils obligation to administer the ROI process and to provide accessible information to the public online through one streamlined and easily managed platform. Having all the data integrated in one place gives an organisation greater visibility over the process, freeing up staff time and allowing an organisation to run reports that are updated with real-time information.

We wanted an online system to manage the ‘Register of Interests’ declarations for the approx. 1,300 parish, town, and district councillors we have in East Suffolk. We are required to publish the Register of Interests declarations for all councillors in our area, and so having an online solution for this saves us having to post out paperwork to each councillor, and then scan in and publish the returns. It also enables councillors to manage their own declarations as and when they have changes

A solution that will transform the way your work…

No software to install. Unlike conventional software, the Register of Interest application requires no installation thus removing the problems that are often associated with installed software, for example avoiding the hassle and memory usage of installation software on every device. Information can be accessed 24/7 and is totally flexible, offering access from almost any device or browser.

Totally web-based. With a web-based application, an organisation has the peace of mind that should computer equipment be damaged or stolen, it can very quickly be back to ‘business as usual’. This is because the application stores information on remote server, so you can log-in securely to any computer or mobile device and can be up and running again in no time.

Completely self service application.  Allow each councillor to input their own information therefore freeing up council staff to concentrate on other tasks and duties. No more paper copies that have to be scanned in and uploaded.

Fulfil your councils obligation for providing full transparency. The council has a responsibility to ensure the public have full knowledge of a councillor’s interests, by using the Register of Interest application the council can fulfil this requirement with the minimum of input.
