PRESS RELEASE: POPVOX Announces Integration With Salsa Labs Platform
July 22, 2011, WASHINGTON, DC― POPVOX, the award-winning online platform that connects citizens with Congress, today announced seamless integration with the SALSA LABS organizing platform used by over 2,000 nonprofits, labor unions, and campaigns.
Laura Byrd, Director of Marketing at Salsa Labs, said, “So many of our clients already use Salsa for their advocacy efforts, so we are excited to provide our clients with the new POPVOX tool that organizers can take advantage of within the structure of their existing Salsa dashboard.”
The integration allows Salsa clients to embed a POPVOX “Write Congress” widget on their website to help their members weigh in on pending legislation. Since the tool is powered by POPVOX, constituent information is verified for Congressional offices, messages are aggregated publicly on the POPVOX.com website and individuals can track the delivery of their message to their legislators’ offices.
“Integrating with customer relationship management and organizing platforms will make it even easier for organizations to add POPVOX to their arsenal of advocacy tools,” said Rachna Choudhry, Chief Marketing Officer of POPVOX. “We're fortunate to have an innovative partner in Salsa Labs to launch the integrated service.”
