eCasework

Case management & CRM for representatives and their staff

About eCasework

eCasework is a case management and CRM solution for councillors, MPs, MLAs, AMs, MSPs, unions and other political representatives to collect, follow and resolve cases. By combining the essential tools for case management such as alerts, email, contact consolidation, powerful search function, document storage and time tracking, eCasework aims to provide an all-in-one workflow solution.

In order to improve organization, workflow management and timekeeping, eCasework provides a central hub to collect cases and complaints and track them from the initial contact to the final resolution. Users can receive, record and track cases from end-to-end and can consolidate contacts from other channels to create an online address book, notepad, email inbox, organizational diary and filing system.

Users can organise deadlines for task resolutions and plan events using the calendar tool and reminders can be automatically sent when a task needs attention or a follow up is required. Information is automatically synchronized across channels and devices and can be accessed from anywhere thanks to the cloud-based storage.

    eCasework is a vital part of my toolkit as a local councillor.

    Reviewed on 2017/05/11

    Pros

    The best thing about eCasework is it allows me to track all my open casework in one easy place. The system provided by the council is not suitable for my needs, as it is really designed for officer demands and not the demands of a councillor.

    Cons

    The one niggle I have with the software at the moment is the difficulty of searching for a case and not being able to click to open the case itself. This seems cumbersome.

    Response from Porism

    Thanks so much for your kind words, Andrew, and we're glad you find the tool vital to your work. When we set out to build eCasework, we wanted it to enable elected representatives to get things sorted in their area, so it's fulfilling to know it's doing that for you.

    Your point about the search tool has been noted and we're already working on improvements to Search for the next release, keep an eye on the newsletter. Thanks again :)

    Excellent software, makes my job a lot easier - would highly recommend.

    Reviewed on 2017/05/31

    Pros

    I like the functionality, the ease of use and being able to store our inform in one, easy to access location. The staff are fantastic, very accommodating and take your ideas on boards. We have had no major issues since starting to use the software and feel reassured by the security in place considering the sometimes sensitive nature of the information held.

    We had looked at other software providers in our search for finding one that would fit our requirements and the one month free trial was an added bonus and the overall value for money cannot be beaten.

    Cons

    I wouldn't class it as a con so much, there are small features that we would like added but the staff at ecasework are happy to take our ideas on board and see if they can marry them into the software. We have a progressive relationship and as our input into the software grows, we can offer suggestions that we know will be looked at and not dismissed as soon as they have been received.

    Response from Porism

    Supporting political offices as well as individual representatives is one of our objectives, and it's fulfilling to know that you can manage your team's casework with us. Keep sending in those feature requests, Sarah, and thank you very much this review!

    Quick and fast - saving me loads of time!

    Pros

    Top of my list are the stand out levels of customer service, (personal and very quick response every time), and the ability to tag an area of the software and quickly send a message suggesting improvements or expressing an opinion....and several times they have adjusted the software to make exactly the improvements I have suggested, or asked me some further questions to make sure they get it right, (often within a few days)

    Software: Easy and intuitive ; flexible & quick to use; setting review dates; email facility; keeps docs & photos together and organised - even the most complex cases; access on smartphone allowed me to set-up/ update cases while speaking to customers, (avoiding writing info down to add later).

    I have been very happy with eCasework, it has worked very well for our office as we have a number of users and we can all update cases and find information very quickly.
    The ability to set a reminder and due date is extremely useful in a busy office, it helps to keep on top of our case load.

    Pros

    Very easy to use and organise cases. It is easy for different users to add information and update cases so everyone has access to the information.

    The tags and graph is also very handy and a helps to map out what we are dealing with.

    Cons

    Can be very glitchy with the update function. Doesn't copy and paste very well from emails or documents.

    Mainly used as a means of keeping all my e-mails on record and in one place for retrieval. Functionality is very easy.

    Pros

    Easy to use, support excellent (although I didn't need to use it that often). My feedback was acted upon.

    Cons

    Could do with added functionality to set up template letters & e-mails and print of envelopes.

    Also, search function against names as I have now built up hundreds of constituents and having to scroll down is a bit of a pain.
