Caseworker - Coming to Canada!

After a few months of preparation, we're excited to say that Caseworker, the world leading software helping MPs run their offices, manage casework and track correspondence is now ready to make the leap from the UK to Canada!

Caseworker's Track Record of Delivery: An Update

We last posted about our track record of delivery back in 2017, so we thought now would be a good time to provide an update. We've built from where we were back then by launching Caseworker.gov and opening an office in Australia to serve our clients out there. At the same time, we've increased our users in the UK Parliament, Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly - reaching a total of almost 65% of UK MPs using Caseworker. We've also seen big increases in the number of emails sent and received, cases created and overall data stored. We've continued to »

Digital Transformation and Caseworker

Digital transformation has come increasingly into focus as a priority for councils around the UK as they seek new ways of working, in order to increase efficiency and reduce costs in the face of falling budgets. All of this while improving the standard of services! One of the most common ways of delivering successful digital transformation projects has been to work hand in hand with cloud software providers to provide both internal and external services. We’re at the forefront of replacing tired ways of working in the public sector, whether they’re paper based or rely on slow, complicated »

Using Caseworker for FOIs

How Caseworker Helps New Councillors

Being elected as a new Councillor is exciting, but it can also seem a little bit daunting! You're in a new role, and there's no how to guide for being a good Councillor, or how to properly represent your constituents.

Whether they're stopping you in the street, sending an email, coming to an advice surgery or phoning you up, they all want to be looked after professionally and properly. It can be overwhelming, particularly if this is all new »

ETech Polls - Accurately polling single-seats for political clients

As Australia heads to the polls on Saturday it appears that the likelihood of a uniform national swing is ever decreasing. As a result, being able to predict the results in individual seats through single-seat polling, is an increasingly important way to determine a party or candidate’s likelihood to succeed. Unfortunately, single-seat polling is seen to have significant accuracy issues. An analysis of single-seat polls in the 2016 election found that the published polls were so bad that they should have been treated as having a sample size one-sixth of the actual size, this would mean that a margin »

We’ve talked previously about how Caseworker can enhance your engagement with your constituents - but did you know that we can also help you keep on top of your workload, giving you what you need to deliver real results. Every Councillor knows that queries to Council officers can sometimes be missed or deadlines for a response can pass. But it’s hard to keep track of what needs to be chased and when, especially if everything has different timescales. That’s unless you use Caseworker! With Caseworker, every time you take an action - like sending an email to »
