WORLD LEADER IN LEGISLATIVE SOLUTIONS

Propylon has been working with legislatures and parliaments since the 1990s and is renowned as a world leader in providing legislative software solutions that deliver results. We have considerably deeper and broader expertise than any other vendor on the market and established the first end-to-end legislative solution with the creation of our Legislative Workbench (LWB). We have since launched the next generation of our Legislative Workbench product, LWB 360, with enhanced features, and it continues to be the only solution of its kind available on the market today.

LWB 360: THE COMPLETE SUITE

LWB 360 is made up of a core data management system with a number of built-in technical applications that can be configured and customized through the use of tools built around the product. Each application can be purchased and implemented separately and customized for your unique requirements. These consist of LWB 360 Drafting, LWB 360 Chamber, LWB 360 Committee, LWB 360 Council, LWB 360 Smart Vote, and LWB 360 Web Enterprise. They provide features which include automated alerts, workflow management, search, point-in-time functionality, and full audit trails and reporting.

HOW IT WORKS

Our LWB 360 product provides a core framework and applications for building out the specific requirements of each legislature, such as workflows, templates, publishing formats, and productivity tools. It prioritizes a consolidated data model, which underpins each of the applications. This approach allows for data to be entered once and used many times, removing the need for duplicate data entry. It gives the Legislature strict controls over what is published and supports the publishing of legislative information in different formats.



LWB360 product suite

Using Open Standards and Open Formats, which minimize risk and allow for integration with existing or future systems, it supports the development of the productivity tools and apps demanded by today’s users. Cost-effective and with a proven track record, LWB 360 is driving transformative change across legislatures by increasing efficiency, streamlining workflows, and simplifying processes while protecting legislative procedures.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“In designing our drafting system with Propylon, it was important to our drafters that the system reflected our styles, processes, and procedures rather than requiring drafters to adapt to system requirements. Propylon worked hard to learn our business processes and develop a drafting system to meet our business needs and make our processes more efficient. However, while respecting our processes and procedures, Propylon developers also were willing to make suggestions, based upon their experience, for creating efficiency in our processes. The implementation of our drafting system has been effective in streamlining the entire bill drafting process for drafters, proofreaders, and editors. It has moved us toward a paperless process that involves the transitioning of electronic drafts throughout the entire drafting and review process. In addition, it has significantly reduced the amount of staff time involved in the engrossing and enrolling of bills through the automatic generation of amendment instructions from a marked-up version of a bill.”
