NorthStar Desktop Predictive VoIP Phone Bank

Forget the decade-old systems some campaigns are actually still being conned into using. If you’re serious about winning, this is what wins.

Our desktop-based phones features color touch screens, and work like magic when polling, working through Voter ID universes, and GOTV drives.

NorthStar’s predictive dialing system can make one volunteer into THREE and depending on the number of volunteers you have, one volunteer can make as many calls as five, six or even SEVEN volunteers on the old phone systems.

Northstar’s predictive system is perfect to make a small campaign as effective as large statewide campaign.

And NorthStar works wonders for campaigns that have offices in multiple locations. Whether you’re running a large municipal campaign, or a multi-state presidential, NorthStar allows your entire campaign to call separate regions, or act as one large office of callers.

Call From Home

Northstar’s Call from Home system allows your campaign’s volunteers to call from anywhere they want as long as they have a phone, a computer or tablet and an internet connection.

The benefits of this are obvious. Instead of having people have to drive down to your office, they can instead signup through the website and start making calls almost right away. Our Call from Home system utilities the same predictive dialing system as our desktop phones so one volunteer can be as productive as THREE and depending on the number of volunteers you can have one volunteer make as many calls as five, six or even SEVEN volunteers using other systems.

The Call from Home system allows for small campaigns to have access to a call system, even if they do not have a full time office.

And for larger campaigns, the Call from Home system allows for volunteers from communities that do not have a campaign office to still help reach out to voters. And the Call from Home system and Desktop system work together so callers from home and from your office can call the same universe at the same time, which increases the effectiveness of each volunteer.

WalkApp

walkapp

NorthStar’s app for voter canvassing called “WalkApp” is a two-way app. It allows you not only to collect data as your volunteers go door-to-door, but also displays data before you knock on that door letting the volunteer know what previous information has been collected about that voter both in door visits and phone communications.

For customers using NationBuilder, WalkApp is capable of summarizing social media information and emails that reside in your NationBuilder nation.

NationBuilder

Nation Builder provides your campaign website, voter database, fundraising, communications and free voter file.

Now it also offers a walk book application, call from home predictive technology and a VOIP phone predictive technology through Northstar Campaign Systems.  This partnership will allow your campaign all of the benefits of both companies but save you time and energy by combining the database and data collection process.

About Us

NorthStar Campaign Systems is an Omaha, NE based full service political technology and consulting firm that offers a streamlined platform from which you may operate your entire campaign.

NorthStar is the brainchild of Andrew Northwall, a computer programmer, Republican activist, and former local party Executive Director. Working for the 2008 Republican “Victory” effort in Southwest Iowa, Northwall became aware of significant differences between the Republican efforts for McCain versus the Democrat efforts for Obama. The Democrats had an elevated level of knowledge about the voters as they went door-to-door. The Obama campaigners were tracking voter comments, entering the information into a database of sorts, and providing that information to the next walk team to visit that voter.

Northwall saw opportunity. Every time you’ve thought to yourself, “it would be nice if my campaign technology provider could do this,” we have probably built your solution.

With his background in database systems, Northwall persuaded angel investor, and Republican activist Matt Butler, to help him start a company where campaigns could obtain the absolute state of the art technology needed to win elections. Butler also serves as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer.

Years of winning elections have proven the NorthStar Difference.
