Vote for our NTEN Sessions

We are so pleased to report that we have submitted three amazing session ideas for NTEN’s NTC 2018. NTEN is the Non-Profit Technology Network which runs an annual conference that brings together a slew of people from all over the country who work for non-profits or the companies that support them. Since Grassroots Unwired makes a big impact on many nonprofits, we decided to step up and submit about the collaborative work with our clients.

We are excited to announce the following sessions are available for public voting. Voting has started and runs until Friday, September 1, 2017. The rules are that you have to create a login on the NTEN website in order to vote for us and you can only vote once.

Session #1: How Mobile Technology can help with social service outreach.

Session #2: Are you getting the most out of every public event you plan?

Session #3: How to build your sustainer base one door at a time.

If those links don’t work, head on over to https://www.nten.org/proposals/. In order to find the sessions, search for the keyword: Grassroots. We come up on the first one or two pages.

Can we count on your vote?

Thank you NTEN, We Loved it!

With our current state of affairs in the U.S., it is easy to wake up each day dejected and pessimistic about the future.

But for 3 days last week, I woke up knowing I would be heading to the annual Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) conference. Detractors may say we were in a bubble, surrounding ourselves with idealism run amok, but for 3 days I saw everything that is great, compassionate and hopeful about our country. I met hundreds of people who choose to devote their work life to putting the needs of others before themselves – they deserve far more recognition then they get.

While the NTEN attendees are on the front lines fighting their battles, we at Grassroots Unwired strive to be the support behind the scenes they can use to make their efforts more efficient and effective. Technology can be a great equalizer across society and our goal is to make sure it supports those who fighting the good fight so admirably and selflessly. It is humbling to have even a small opportunity to be a part of this.

If you were there and we didn’t have a chance to speak:

Request a meeting to learn more!

It was a pleasure to be a part of the NTEN conference and we not only look forward to being their next year but participating in their events all year long.

Bar Codes and You

The Ballot Initiative Strategy Center held its annual conference in Las Vegas last week and Grassroots Unwired participated in the New Tools Shoutout where 16 organizations vied for the prize of Best New Tool from 2016.

Using a real-life use case from Fieldworks, we won the hearts and minds of the audience and emerged victorious with a sweet new water bottle as the prize.

Petition drives can be about so much more then getting on the ballot – if you have the right tools. Use our Barcode tool to tie the Petition signer back to the form they signed along with the GPS location and time that the signature was collected and the name of the canvasser who collected it.

Then leverage our tech to quickly collect more useful information that you can turn into real-time action:

  • Collect email addresses and cell phone numbers to instantly engage the signers after the interaction with customized SMS opt-ins and emails
  • Have them sign a digital pledge card that can be sent to them as a reminder closer to the election
  • Sign them up for volunteer opportunities and upcoming events
  • Protect your reputation and your effort with Quality Control metrics like:
    • Time on Turf for each canvasser
    • GPS and Time Stamps for each interaction
    • Length of time it takes to complete each survey

Now more then ever, ballot initiatives are a critical way to push your agenda and fight against legislative overreach. You want to know when, where and how every signature you get was collected and walk away with actionable data that will enhance your campaign efforts far beyond the petition drive.

Get in touch with us to learn how the Grassroots Unwired mobile platform can make this a reality for you and your organization.
