You’re sitting at home when someone with a clipboard knocks on the door and asks to speak with you or another member of your family. This is the traditional way of canvassing that Grassroots Unwired has taken to the next level. We have eliminated the clipboard. With Grassroots Unwired Canvassing App, when a canvasser arrives at a home they will use the marketing information uploaded onto the tablet to start a productive, tailored conversation. All while recording answers, encouraging donations, and confirming contact information. Thanks to the integration between Grassroots Unwired and Twilio, email addresses and cell phone numbers will be verified on the spot, ensuring the most updated and accurate constituent information.
We have all experienced people on street corners in major metropolitan areas trying to catch our attention. Historically, it was clipboard-wielding college kids who were working hard to get names added to a donor or advocacy list. Then, at the end of the day, they would bring their clipboards back to headquarters and manually complete data entry. This typically took hours. Often, there were inaccuracies because of typing mistakes or illegible handwriting. But now, with our innovative technology, college kids are armed with android tablets, which effectively eliminate the barriers to building a solid donor or advocacy list. People can enter their information onto the tablets, their email addresses will be instantly verified, and their information will be sent to a safe and comprehensive database.
