6 Features You Can’t Do Without

1. Integrated database.

This one may seem obvious, but it’s a big advantage that most campaigns still don’t have. With Campaign Engine, when someone contributes, volunteers, signs up for your mailing list, sends a tell a friend message, or signs a petition, that information is logged into one unified database.

That means you can search for all the people who gave $50 last quarter, offered to work a phone bank, and live in a certain ZIP code — and then send them an email broadcast. That wouldn’t be possible if your lists of contributors, volunteers, and email addresses were all separate.

Next: Online ticketing for events.
