ICYMI: Votebuilder the Foundation for DNC’s New Project Ivy

For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week the Democratic National Committee Announced a new technology initiative, called Project Ivy, to help candidates across the country operationalize the data tools used by President Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign and maintain an edge in the campaign technology race.

The new effort is built on the foundation provided by Votebuilder, the voter contact and volunteer management tool created by NGP VAN, the leading technology provider to thousands of progressive organizations and Democratic campaigns.

"We’re honored to be working hand in hand with the DNC to equip Democrats with tools that help them win. Not only do Democrats have the message and technology to run smart, data driven campaigns up and down the ballot – they have a culture that values and knows how to apply that technology", said Bryan Whitaker, COO of NGP VAN. "No one is resting on their laurels, and we’re all-in to help build on our technological competitive advantage over Republicans."
