  • Replacing manual processes with automated approaches to manage data, including donor info, social media, email contacts, voter lists, event attendees, and volunteers
  • The trend for newer campaign tools to open up their APIs to improve interoperability
  • Solving the problem of "Where is my sticker?" Need for political campaigns to meet voters' expectations as consumers have come to expect a quick and accurate response from vendors.
