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 Software, 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 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. There were often inaccuracies because of typing mistakes or illegible handwriting. But now, with our innovative mobile canvassing app, 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, comprehensive database.
After years of in-house experience, from our campaign warriors to our professional canvassers and our outstanding community volunteers, we know that information needs to be accurately collected so you can use it to empower your campaign or cause.
Whether the question is how many doors were knocked in the last hour or how much money has been raised, our mapping & real-time reporting tools will be available at your fingertips.
Using our canvassing software you can cut turf for today or future dates and assign areas to specific canvassers.
Make shift changes as canvassing data comes in based on how your canvassers are doing (i.e., number of doors knocked on).
Our canvassing software allows you to see where canvassers are at all times, in real-time, ensuring canvassers are in their designated zones, hitting the doors on their assigned turf.
Color code the pins on the map using information from your data-set, so you can see the types of homes canvassers will be visiting in order to assign them accordingly
