A mobile app for Android or iOS is used by field staff for viewing crucial campaign information and collective information.

Awesome Tool for you canvasing!

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

They really need to work on their updates and their progression. Everything in the app is great but certain features are at time to troubling to figure out and quite unresourceful.

Great Cavasing tool!

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

The only thing I can point out is that they need to update their software. It needs a little bit of work but other than that, it's all good!

Great Product

I have been using Polis for about 2 months now and have nothing but good things to say about the app. It has been easy to use for our canvassers. I am waiting for the next update to see what they had to the system. I would recommend this software with out reservation.

Pros

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

Makes a tough job easy

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.

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.

Any Easy and Powerful Canvassing Tool

The polis app was a great addition to our grassroots campaign to petition on a primary ballot. Volunteers were able to walk in unfamiliar neighborhoods with confidence and the app interface was very easy for our volunteers to use. The dash board was incredibly useful to track our progress and target areas that needed more attention. The Polis staff were incredibly helpful, checking in on our progress and available to answer any questions. I highly recommend this product.

Huge time saver

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.

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

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. As we go forward, I am sure there will be hiccups, but I am confident that they will be handled promptly and completely. That is the best part of the Polis experience. Proactive customer service that doesn't wait to hear about a problem. They seem to be with us each step of the way, ready to make the application and our experience optimal.
