NGP VAN Is An Outstanding Political Tool

NGP VAN is a tool that all politicians can use to enhance their campaign. NGP VAN is an online platform that is very easy to use. This platform is famous for their canvassing, which is the single best way to gain voters. Canvassing allows volunteers in the campaign to store information from supporters. This information includes things like place of residence, occupation, and family members. These volunteers can then reach out to the friends and family members of all of their supporters, and this has helped thousands of politicians get elected and reelected.


NGP VAN canvassing is also good because there is no need to keep hard copy records. Whether it’s supporters information or their donations, NGP VAN software stores all pieces of information separately and makes it easy to find, too. This has been great during tax season because politicians no longer have to worry about forgetting to claim a specific donation on their taxes. NGP VAN software prepares all of this in the background. This software also comes with several different templates that can be used for tax purposes. Using this software has helped thousands of politicians not have any situations with the law due to tax purposes. In fact, every major politician in America has turned to NGP VAN for one reason or another, and all of these politicians benefited from their experience.

Another great thing about NGP VAN is that the software is LGTBQ friendly. This is the only software that has several different gender choices for supporters. All supporters will also receive information indicating that the politician is for the LGBTQ community. This has helped thousands and even millions of people in the LGBTQ community become registered voters. NGP VAN is planning on doing more in the future to assist the LGBTQ community in becoming voters and having a voice during every election.

Spring Arrives and So Does Handy Help

The spring arrives and this means a “super cleaning” is in order. The cleaning session may even be well past due. A house is a big place. Basement, first floor, second floor, and, possibly, an attic, comprise all the rooms inside a decent-sized property. For two people living in a home of these dimensions, cleaning everything becomes difficult. Something ends up being missed.

And no, a house does not have to be this huge in order to be tough to clean. Smaller homes and even studio apartments are tough to keep clean. People may put the best effort at cleaning a property, but things end up being missed. Then, one day, all that dust on the furniture or the stains on a window become impossible to ignore. So, don’t ignore them. Take immediate steps to clean things up.

At this point, the “easier said than done” chorus may start to sing. If staying on top of cleaning a house was easy, then the place would never have ended with messy spots in the first place.

Spring brings forth a lot of rebirth and renewal. Among the arrival of the new season is a new approach to cleaning. The approach is, surprise, an easy one. Simply using the Handy app is enough to get a home totally and thoroughly cleaned.

Handy is a company that was founded by young entrepreneurs who met at Harvard business school. The concept of Handy is rooted in a simple plan. People can hire expert home cleaning or maintenance freelancers with a few taps on a smartphone app. (The company’s website may also be used to set up a cleaning job) Payment is processed through the app with no real complicated steps.

Handy is a growing company. Offices have opened in several major cities. Service bookings have risen to the $1 million per week mark. This information alone should build confidence in those thinking hiring the service. The fact the company requires stringent screening for its freelancers is another positive.

Spring is not the only time of the year Handy can be used to book cleaning services. Handy is open 24/7 for bookings. Whenever the need arrives to have a home, apartment, or office cleaned, Handy is available.

How Handy Keeps the Customers Loyal

Handy has become important to a lot of people that do not have the time to clean. There are a variety of factors that have made on-demand services popular. There are many people that do not have the time to do the cleaning. There are also shows like “Hoarders” that have scared homeowners into keeping their homes clean. Some homeowners host a lot of parties, and they need regular cleaning because of this. Whatever the reason may be, Handy has become the most reliable resource for cleaning, and Handy founder is trying to bring more contractors to a city near you.

There are already a lot of metro locations that have Handy contractors, but there are still many cities that don’t have access to these workers. Location is everything for a business, but Handy is not restricted to a location because there are contractors all over the world. There is a strategy and a level of structure that is needed to employ contractors in these different areas. That is what founder Oisin Hanrahan continues to work on.

There are also Handy contractors that are ready to go to work in London and Toronto, but there is still room for expansion in the United Kingdom and Canada. That is what Handy executives are focusing on. Handy has already become very well-known, and the services that are offered are being expanded. Handy is on the way to becoming the premiere on-demand services business for homeowners. It was only a matter of time since there are already so many contractors that work on exterior jobs. By contrast, Handy is taking care of everything on the inside of the home.
