Data Management Solution


A one-click solution. ES&S’ Empower solution provides secure data hosting, storage and management, saving our customers the time, money and staff required to install and manage a web hosting system.

Take Control… Partner with ES&S

 We believe our customers should be supported throughout the whole election process. That includes data storage and management. Companies offering “cloud self-service” models put all the responsibility on you. Our associates have over 35 years of collective hosting experience and are ready to support you. 

  • Dedicated environment for election data
  • No outsourcing to a non-election platform
  • No data on a public cloud
  • No on-premise data management
Is Empower a Cloud Solution? 

No. Your data is too important to be in “the cloud.” ES&S hosts data and applications centrally and manages them for you. The only similarity to a cloud solution is that ES&S’ Empower solution is convenient and cost-effective. 

Why host with ES&S?

We don’t just host your data; we understand it. ES&S has been a trusted supplier since 1979, working exclusively in the election industry. We care about what you do.
