We’re excited to announce that Android phone and tablet users can now enjoy all the same canvassing conveniences that folks already use on iOS gadgets, with the release of MiniVAN for Android.
The free app allows users to export canvassing lists from the VAN onto an Android phone or tablet. Canvassers can enter data into their device as they talk to people on their list, and then upload their data back to the VAN with the touch of a button. Canvassing with MiniVAN allows NGP VAN clients to spend more time and resources on actually contacting people instead of on data entry, and improves the quality of the data. And there are accountability features, so now administrators can check the time of each entry.
