Propylon - Transforming the legislative process with technology
In today’s networked world, Legislatures and Parliaments are coming under increased pressure to provide real-time access to their information and activities to constituents and businesses. Legislative Members, staff and government agencies need timely access to legislative information as they cope with the exponential increase in the digital information they have to process as part of their daily jobs. The challenges faced by Legislatures and Parliaments in keeping pace with the speed of change in this always-on, ubiquitous digital landscape are significant.
Propylon’s products solve these challenges and are in use by Legislatures and Parliaments worldwide. Our Legislative Suite provides:
- Staff with improved tools to do their job
- Members with productivity apps that enhance and streamline their legislative work
- Citizens and Businesses with open data formats and APIs that empower them to consume

Propylon’s LWB is a proven, cost effective enterprise solution that supports all aspects of the legislative process in a single consolidated legislative IT architecture. It uses open and interoperable information formats that support the development of the productivity tools and apps demanded by today’s users.
Integrated and co-developed on the ground in partnership with Legislatures, LWB supports all aspects of the legislative process from bill drafting to committee and chamber management to codification of statute. LWB has been designed using an enterprise-wide information model that allows for interoperability between departments and the ability to maintain existing procedural rules. This partnership approach has enabled LWB to mature into a product that has the capacity to support all the internal functions of a Legislature, while facilitating the integration of emerging technologies such as smart phones, tablet apps and machine readable open data formats.
