Makes a tough job easy

2017-02-20

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.

Pros

Makes a daunting task actionable for people who have different interest levels and motivations.

Cons

There are small usability things to fix, but nothing that can't be fixed.

An absolute disappointment.

2019-06-24

We were sold on a great product and a great support team.

Pros

The way the salesperson sold Polis made it seem like the perfect solution to our door to door campaign.

Cons

Fast forward 2 months, the app was still crashing every single day for every one of our canvassers, making it impossible for them to do their job, or for us to run our door to door campaign. Because of the major failures, we decided to request a refund...

Response from Polis


Polis has a long history of strong reviews and positive user experiences which speaks immense volumes to the capabilities and the advanced technology found in the Polis App.

We are sad to see a client who we value have such a negative experience given our track record of helping to ensure success.

In the case of Lawn Love, we fell short in the eyes of the client which is something that we recognize happens even in some of the most promising of partnerships.

The Polis App is built to be flexible and nimble so that specific user needs are typically met. In the case of Lawn Love, those flexibilities were difficult to turn around in a short development window, even though our Support teams found ways for the App to help Lawn Love accomplish it's goals. These recommendations were not implemented by our client.

Polis followed its outlined Customer Support SLA with precision and professionalism, but ultimately, Lawn Love requested a refund, which Polis gladly provided.

Huge time saver

2016-06-01

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.

Polis has gone the extra mile to get us up and running and to meet all our outrageous expectations!

2016-05-04

The product we are using seems PERFECT for an insurgency campaign. We get the benefits of professional grade product but with an ease of operation that makes amateurs look and compete like pros.

Polis is easy to use and the availability and accessibility of the customer service personnel is amazing.

Pros

Easy of use, both as a canvassers and as an admin.

Awesome Tool for you canvasing!

2018-03-12

Pros

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!

Cons

Everything in the app is great but certain features are at time to troubling to figure out and quite unresourceful.

Great Cavasing tool!

2018-03-12

Pros

We decided that we needed to record our day-to-day canvasing for our business and with Polis everything was very handy and easy.

Cons

It needs a little bit of work but other than that, it's all good!
