"From Concept to Launch: The Journey of ElectionShop.co.uk – A Project Manager's Perspective"




Introduction: Launching a platform like ElectionShop.co.uk has been an exhilarating journey, filled with challenges, triumphs, and a whole lot of hard work. As the project manager, it's my pleasure to share the behind-the-scenes story of how we transformed an idea into the UK's new one-stop-shop for all things needed to run a successful election.

The Power of Integration: One of the key strengths of ElectionShop.co.uk lies in its parent company, Lonsdale Direct Solutions. Leveraging the capabilities of our parent company has allowed us to offer a wide range of products, from printed items to branded merchandise and essential office supplies. The seamless integration has not only streamlined the procurement process but also ensured the availability of high-quality, tailor-made election-related products.


The Thrill of Procurement: Having spent a significant portion of my career in sales, diving into the procurement side of the job for ElectionShop.co.uk has been a refreshing and rewarding experience. Building strong relationships with suppliers has been crucial, ensuring that we can consistently provide our customers with top-notch products. It's not just about transactions; it's about partnerships that contribute to the success of our clients' elections.


Building Partnerships: One of the highlights of this journey has been the establishment of strong partnerships with trusted elections experts in the market. They have helped us ensure we create the experience electoral adminstrators need, rather than administrators adapting and making do. These relationships go beyond mere transactions; they are the foundation upon which ElectionShop.co.uk stands. Collaboration has allowed us to offer a diverse and high-quality product range, ensuring that election administrators have everything they need at their fingertips.


Gearing Up for AEA Conference: As we approach the grand reveal of ElectionShop.co.uk, our team is gearing up for the AEA Conference, scheduled for January 14-16 in Birmingham. This event presents the perfect platform to showcase our one-stop-shop to a discerning audience of election professionals. We're excited to reconnect with familiar faces, share our passion for elections, and demonstrate the unique benefits of choosing ElectionShop.co.uk for all their election-related needs.


Benefits of ElectionShop.co.uk: Our platform is not just about selling products; it's about providing a comprehensive solution for election teams. Whether it's printed materials, branded items, stationery or even polling booths and , ElectionShop.co.uk is designed to simplify the entire process, saving time and effort. From the ease of ordering to the assurance of quality, our platform is set to redefine the way elections are organised.


Conclusion: The journey from conceptualisation to the launch of ElectionShop.co.uk has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. With the support of Lonsdale Direct, dedicated team members, and trusted suppliers, we are proud to introduce a platform that is poised to become the go-to destination for all election-related needs. As we eagerly anticipate the AEA Conference, we look forward to sharing our passion and commitment to making elections run smoothly with ElectionShop.co.uk.
