Powerful Interconnection Software

Pros

Mobilize helps my team and I be on the same page in our work environment, which needs to respond to changes in our local sphere multiple times a day. The team helping us migrate our existing workflow from Slack was also extremely helpful and the service they provided was top-notch.

Cons

Probably the fact that it is paid, considering there are some alternatives out there that are cheaper or free of charge. However, with the features that Mobilize provides, it was a no-brainer for us to invest in it, and our productivity has increased tenfold.

A volunteer-first tool that works at any scale

MobilizeAmerica is the only off-the-shelf tool in the game that puts volunteers first and designs an experience that I'm proud to point people to -- I think of them as a partner in community organizing, as leaders who are focused on not only making my organization successful, but in getting more people engaged in important work.

Pros

I love the MobilizeAmerica tools so much that it's tough to narrow down all the reasons, but it ultimately boils down to these key points: - The tool is super easy to use for everyone involved -- whether that's a community organizer, a digital strategist, or a first-time volunteer - They create a holistic experience for volunteers that goes beyond searching for and signing up for events -- and they're always thinking about how to optimize that experience so that it's both easy/fun for the volunteer, and maximizes their conversions, re-shifts, etc. - They're always working to improve their tools, are super responsive to customer feedback, and keep users in the loop on their roadmap so we can grow and scale together

Cons

The only drawback to the MobilizeAmerica software is that it's not super conducive to outside-the-box uses -- e.g. if you want to harness their features for your own slightly different purposes other than what it's built for, it's almost too customized to do that successfully.

Reasons for Choosing Mobilize

MobilizeAmerica's commitment to syncing with the rest of the platforms and systems in the ecosystem makes my life much easier.

Mobilize turns online activism into offline actions

Overall, I really enjoy Mobilize! It's a great little "niche" platform that fits well in the political nonprofit world. It works side by side with other platforms such as NGP VAN/EveryAction and GetThru as some examples. It even attracts volunteers in a virtual or distributed organizing environment.

Pros

I like that it integrates really well with NGP VAN/EveryAction. These two platforms go hand in hand in recruiting volunteers for shifts, analyzing metrics such as retention, engagement and flake rate, & cleaning up the data on the backend.

Cons

I wish Mobilize had more product codes to line up with its integration to NGP VAN. Having to double check the data and re-upload in an excel sheet and become fairly tedious after a while to ensure quality control. Also, I wish customer support was automated or they created a better support or help page for new users.

Mobilize Review

Gamechanger for our organization.

Pros

Ease of use. Multiple departments can easily use this tool to accomplish their goals.

Cons

Search functionality on the backend. Ability to search promoted organizations by not promoted, state, and type would be super helpful. Ability to add fundraising events via actblue api -- or even mobilize ticketed fundraising events system.

Reasons for Choosing Mobilize

We still use our custom events platform because mobilize doesn't integrate with, mainly, ActBlue. We have events coming in from candidates, allied organizations, and county parties that are in different formats.

Reasons for Switching to Mobilize

Mobilize offered more powerful tools that gave every department the ability to own each phase of organizing. The data syncs between platforms was the biggest factor in our decision.
