This version is up and running in all 50 states. It allows individuals to track interests by topic or bill, access bill summaries, connect with legislators and view legislator voting history. Users can personalize their experience by adding events to their calendar, making private notes on bills, authoring comments to share, and subscribing to tailored automated email updates on a daily or weekly basis. Our subscribers include state legislators and advocacy groups like NARAL, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.
Our professional version offers collaborative workflow tools, instant alerts, amendment tracking and data-driven legislative prediction features. By combining machine learning with bill tracking, text comparison and collaboration tools, it will transform the field of government relations and provide unprecedented insights. Currently, bill trackers are antiquated and not particularly intuitive. Most legislative analysis is still based on punditry and opinions, rather than on hard data and quantitative insights. FastDemocracy Professional has the chance to become the go-to business intelligence tool for legislation and regulations. By mining the rich field of data supplied by voting records, text, and legislative outcomes, we can move from speculation to true strategy. FastDemocracy Professional doesn’t just give individuals, organizations, and businesses the tools, our analytics actually help them identify pathways to success. For stakeholders, this can make the difference between winning and losing, between resources well-spent and resources wasted.
I have been working with FastDemocracy as a technology development and commercialization coach. FastDemocracy has a terrific idea! And it’s the perfect time to enter the market due to the renewed interest in advocacy among U.S. citizens since the 2016 election. Record numbers of citizens are contacting their Federal, state, and local representatives. They need and want factual information about proposed legislation, voting records, etc. Lobbyists and advocacy groups also need this information. These products will meet their needs not only in the U.S. but in other democratic countries as well. FastDemocracy has an extremely talented team of experts in programming and advocacy/lobbying. They are very coachable, quick learners and I have no doubt that they will be successful. FastDemocracy has not only excellent business potential but could also change the political landscape by empowering people worldwide to more effectively participate in their democracy.
