Organizer is a San Francisco based mash-up of hackers, campaign organizers, entrepreneurs, and investors building mobile apps that make face-to-face contact easy and affordable.
Organizer's team believes that technology should encourage MORE human interaction, not less. Closing a big deal? Asking someone to marry you? Everything that's important is done in person because face-to-face contact is almost always the most effective way to communicate. It's how fruitful relationships are built with the people who matter.
But, face-to-face contact can be expensive. Organizer’s making it easier -- and cheaper -- for organizations to send workers from the office to the field using affordable smartphones.
Organizer's first app, Electionear, is for political campaigns and advocacy organizations. The immediate goals are simple: (a) eliminate wasting resources on printing paper lists; (b) eliminate the potential for lost data as workers have face-to-face conversations with voters; and, (c) eliminate hours spent on data entry post hoc. Transmitting relevant data to and from smartphones in real-time makes it all possible.
