During the term of the agreement, Scytl will be responsible for developing, supplying, and managing the new software that will be used in all electoral processes in the country.

A Security Operations Centre is used for this purpose.

Silvia Caparrós, CEO of Scytl, "Our knowledge and experience of electoral processes, the security provided by our solutions and our technology have been decisive in winning this contest. The pivotal value has undoubtedly been our ability to respond to the demanding need of the Electoral Council of the Netherlands to face the exciting challenge of modernising the electoral system of an entire country and doing so with the maximum-security measures".

Mieke Clark-Marsman, CEO Paragon Netherlands and Belgium: "We are extremely proud and pleased to be able to provide this very important service for Dutch democracy. With this formidable award, we are now further expanding our services for elections in the Netherlands digitally as well."
