About MiniVAN by NGP VAN
MiniVAN is a free mobile canvassing application that integrates
seamlessly with VoteBuilder. The MiniVAN system allows users to export
canvassing lists from VoteBuilder onto an iOS or Android device.
Canvassers can then enter data into their device as they talk to
people on their list. When the canvassers connect their device to the
Internet over a wireless or cellular network, they upload their data
back to VoteBuilder with the touch of a button, but contacts can take
place and get recorded without a data connection. Administrative users
on VoteBuilder review the data and apply it to their database in one
Canvassing with MiniVAN allows users and volunteers to spend more time
and resources on actually contacting people instead of on data entry
or printing paper canvass packets. What’s more, it virtually
eliminates the lag time between collecting canvass results and putting
that data to work. Our Online Action forms can also be added to
MiniVAN, allowing canvassers to collect signups, volunteer
information, and petitions.
NGP VAN’s Turf Cutting tools are free to all VoteBuilder users.
These features incorporate the best practices from the most
successful campaigns, with innovative features like auto-turf and
turf management that save time and make your program more efficient.
Generate turfs and walk sheets with custom scripts, maps, and
corresponding lists of voters for canvassing based on universes you
create, whether based on political geography or other attributes.
These features are seamlessly integrated with our mobile canvassing
app, MiniVAN, which is also free for download and use from the Apple
and Google Play stores.
