Data-driven campaigning with Salesforce and Ecanvasser
Salesforce, the world’s #1 CRM system is now integrated with the world’s best face-to-face canvassing app, Ecanvasser. If your organization uses Salesforce and wants to capture data from face-to-face conversations including surveys, contact information or any other data point then you should be excited about this.
Who would use this?
Political organizations, advocacy groups, NGO’s and companies all place huge value on the data they get in face-to-face conversations but up until now this data was usually captured after-the-fact in notes, or not at all. Now you can put incredible canvassing apps in the hands of all your activists/team members/staff and make sure your database is updated in real-time.
- Drive your election campaign outreach with this innovative integration by putting it in the hands of your canvassers.
- Build people power in your community by giving it to your activists at events or community engagements.
- Increase productivity in your field sales teams by tracking and monitoring everything that happens in the field.
By connecting Salesforce and Ecanvasser through API integration, organizations take the grassroots input and turn it into more informed, impactful policy decisions. Let’s take a closer look under the integration hood.

Listening to our current users, we are aware that there can be an internal struggle of team management when it comes to organizing quickly. To get people out on doors, the back and forth over Whatsapp, Messenger, and (insert other apps here) can be endless. We aim to streamline this process for you with Ecanvasser. Now organizers can commit via the Walk app (their canvassing app!) and get notified in the run-up to the event so that they don’t forget. By building it into the door knocking process life has gotten a lot easier for campaign managers.
