Cloud-based political campaign management software

4.8/5 (10 reviews)

Polis overview

Polis is a mobile, cloud-based campaign management solution designed especially for political parties and nonprofit organizations to manage and improve the effectiveness of their campaigns. The solution is developed for on-field volunteers to assist them in reaching their target respondents and capturing campaign related information from them. Besides political campaigns, Polis can also be used for persuasion campaigns, door-to-door sales, lead generations, fundraising campaigns, religious outreach and petition drives.

With the Polis app, political parties can import their voters/prospects list from an excel format file or connect their NationBuilder account to build a central database of their respondents. The solution automatically distributes contacts to on-field volunteers based on the allocation rules configured by campaign leaders. Campaign managers can generate the most-efficient walking routes for their on-field volunteers and mark the location of the contacts they need to cover on GUI based maps on their smartphone devices. Field staff can reach out to respondents and capture survey inputs directly on their mobile devices. All prospects' responses & feedback are updated in real-time, into a central system. The solution provides native Android and iOS mobile apps for field agents to track respondents' locations and capture their responses electronically.

Polis also provides data analytics tools to analyze respondent feedback. Campaign leaders can break down the information collected, post surveys geographically or demographically and analyze the campaign outcome. The poll tracker feature allows campaigners to track their supporter activities during the poll and evaluate overall campaign progress.

Polis takes a daunting task and makes it tangible and actionable. I'm campaign manager for a grassroots campaign for a Burbank, CA city council seat, so we rely on the goodness of several volunteers' hearts to keep spreading the word about our awesome candidate. To that end, it's invaluable to us to have a tool that takes the difficulty out of the task of canvassing and lets them concentrate on the delivery of the message rather than its content or the logistics of which houses to visit. This is an awesome app for any campaign or marketing initiative, no matter the budget. I have several years of experience in apps/sites and usability, and there are a few tweaks I'd suggest (e.g. Some house numbers are unreadable in the map view, and if I re-click into a house, I see all the previously inputted answers except for data entered like email or phone). But all in all, this is a fantastic tool.Makes a daunting task actionable for people who have different interest levels and motivations.

I had the opportunity to use Polis in a local election that focused on ~17,000 voters. It took a little getting used to not having to cut turf or even assign canvassing areas to canvassers. In fact I even called them up to be sure "that's it?" After tying the Polis software into the backend of our database software we uploaded the ENTIRE target list (~17k) into Polis and, yes, "That's it!" After that we sent out our canvassers to different intersections and told them to hit the "Get Started" button and off they went. Scary simple. Polis is a young upstart with tons of potential. They do have a few items that I feel need some addressing and after speaking with them they already have them on their list. Here are my suggestions for improvement: - More/better survey customization - Multi target upload lists that can be specifically assigned (e.g. followup engagements by candidate) - More target data visible when canvassing All in all - we will most certainly be utilizing Polis again and recommend it to any campaign wanting to maximize their time efficiency.

We don't normally do canvasing in our line of work but when business is slow, we have our guys go out and do some canvasing and once we found Polis it's been great! We have everything on the app so nothing gets miscommunicated!
