Polis

Cloud-based political campaign management software

4.5/5 (11 avis)

Polis - Présentation

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.

An absolute disappointment.

Disappointing. We were sold on a great product and a great support team. My initial dealings with Polis were hopeful and our team felt great about purchasing their software.

However, once technical problems arose, their team seemed to be incapable of fixing them. Our account manager did not communicate anything about any of these issues, nor did he offer us any assistance when I messaged him expressing our concerns about the bugs and crashes that our canvassers were experiencing.

Worst of all when we requested a refund because of their lousy software not working at all, we got​ zero response from their team. Avoid!

Avantages

The software and its​ capabilities seemed promising at first. The way the salesperson sold Polis made it seem like the perfect solution to our door to door campaign.

Inconvénients

We purchased a license for 17 people for 3 months. The app began crashing for our canvassers in the first week of use. Our account manager and the support team promised us that their dev team was fixing it, and that it wouldn't be a problem.

The bugs/crashes continued, with our account manager implying that because we had so many users on one account their software was unable to handle the volume of what we needed to do (this volume was very clearly expressed in the sales process AND we paid for each user to use the app).

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...

That was almost three weeks ago now, and we haven't had a single response from their team. I have sent multiple follow up emails to their salesperson, account manager, and support team without hearing back.

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.

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.

Avantages

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

Inconvénients

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

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.

Awesome Tool for you canvasing!

Provenance de l'avis : SoftwareAdvice

Avantages

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!

Inconvénients

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.
