Building a new Party Portal

Prater Raines are delighted to be working with the Liberal Democrats on the development of a new Local and Regional Party Portal to launch in January 2020.

The Portal will be a user friendly web interface to allow Local and Regional Party Officers to:

The Portal will replace the existing Salesforce interface used by a restricted number of Local Party Officers, and be open to a wider range of people in each Local Party with a number of access levels of users. It will also, over time, extend the online functionality available to Local Parties to support functions including candidate selection tools.

The Liberal Democrats will continue to use Salesforce as its member and supporter database. The Portal will act as an interface to, not a replacement of, Salesforce.

The development timetable is tight but is intended to deliver access to the new portal from the start of January 2020. Discussion and feedback with user groups and testing of modules will start at Federal Conference in Bournemouth and mainly take place during the October – December 2019 period of the development.

Prater Raines have been delighted this year to strengthen and extend their longstanding relationship with the Liberal Democrats. They continue to support their long-standing Lib Dem website and email communications platform Foci2, and have also delivered a variety of new developments, including a revamped online shop for Lib Dem Image, a new Party Directory and an European Election Expense reporting tool.
