Updating our Updates

BY Joshua Levy | Tuesday, May 29 2007

A couple of weeks ago we updated our premium Company Reviews section, in which we review software-as-a-service providers for political and advocacy campaigns and their users rate them according to price, software, and service. Although we've reviewed and surveyed the users of 16 companies, we only display ratings for those companies that have received more than 10 responses to the survey -- anything less would simply not be representative enough.

Since updating, we realized that we made an oversight - Media Mezcla, a company that received only two responses from our previous survey, received over 20 this time around, and should have been included in the rankings. Once included, they've landed in the #2 spot, nudging ActBlue down a notch to #3, Capitol Advantage to #4, Democracy in Action to #5, and NGP Software to #6. Congratulations to Media Mezcla, and our apologies for having missed this development the first time around.
