West Virginia Legislature to Move Forward with International Roll-Call's iPad Chamber and Committee Automation System


The International Roll-Call (IRC) team is proud to announce that we have received notice from the good folks of the West Virginia legislature that they have chosen to implement, using the iPad, IRC’s Chamber Automation System in the Senate and IRC's Committee Automation System in four Standing Committees in the House of Delegates.

The IRC "Crawler" application is the integration point with the existing state legislative management system and goes out to retrieve all the required documents and pulls them into the SQL database for the members to have real-time access using the iPad.  The Chamber and Committee Automation systems are also integrated with International Roll-Call's voting applications to provide real-time display board information, vote totals, request to speak information and voting data to the members.

From anywhere within the Capitol complex, the members will be able to access bills and journal information, mark important documents and send notes to other members using the system’s “Sticky Note” function. When in-chamber, the members will be able to follow along with the current bill under discussion while also being free to research bill and journal documents. Display information such as the current bill can be pushed to the member’s iPads also.

West Virginia, which is the first in the country to implement such a system and International Roll-Call are excited to begin this ground-breaking journey together toward further streamlining their legislative process.
