As part of the new lobbying legislation, the Scottish Parliament created an online Lobbying Register. Lobbyists must file a return of all applicable conversations on the register every six months.
Newsdirect, a Scottish political monitoring company knew that keeping track of every conversation topic, location and date with every MSP within a 6 month window is no easy task. Especially for someone who's job is to talk to politicians daily.
As we'd worked with Newsdirect Wales (the Welsh sister company) on other digital projects, we were commissioned to build the Lobby Contact App.
An app to make the new laws easy to work with.
