Greetings and salutations,
With holidays fast approaching and with the end of the year drawing near, it is most appropriate that at this time we reflect on another year that was. 2016 was a successful one for ESI. We saw the return of several repeat customers, satisfied first time customers and we also signed a long term agreement with a well-known international organization.
ESI successfully delivered to five of the world’s continents and in most cases multiple times. In Africa, ESI delivered electoral products and/or services to Ghana, Zambia, The Gambia, Sudan, Kenya, Comoros, Sao Tome and more demonstrating once again that no matter how big or small in area or population, ESI helps to support the electoral process.
The world’s island nations continue to deal with ESI. To list some of the parties we were proud to support in 2016 within the Caribbean region: Jamaica, Grenada and St-Lucia. In the South Pacific, we spent some valuable time working with Fiji, successfully delivered to Marshall Islands and we will return to Solomon Islands early in the New Year to continue assisting in strengthening their electoral cycle.
ESI also delivered to Australia, Guyana, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and a surprising rarity: Canada.
Marketing tours and supplier meetings brought ESI to four continents in 2016. Aside from North America, we visited Asia, Africa (several times over) and Europe. A highlight was most definitely the ICPS Symposium in Namibia where we were able to host some of our valued partners.
In terms of innovation, ESI upgraded its (multi) Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) solution software and hardware in 2016 to include iris scan capabilities. We also improved the application’s interface and the program’s overall user-friendliness. ESI has also expanded its indelible ink product line leading to more choices for our customers since every client is unique. ESI’s ballot boxes of various opacity levels in three appropriate sizes continue to give its users the variety and quality they require and deserve.
On behalf of the whole team here at Electoral Services International Inc., we would like to wish every man, woman and child season’s greetings and happy holidays. May your 2017 be filled with good health, much happiness and continued prosperity.
With kind regards and well wishes,
Electoral Services International Inc. (ESI)
