About FiscalNote

FiscalNote is an SOC 2 Type 2-compliant issue management system designed to help organizations handle relationships with shareholders, pursue opportunities, and mitigate risks arising from legislation or regulation of policies. Teams can store details about contacts, meetings, or other notes in a centralized repository, search for elected officials, and maintain a log of actions such as campaigns or press releases.

FiscalNote allows organizations to add discussion points, strategies, files, and web links to the platform, create reports about legislators' stances on US federal or state bills, and track team members’ activities across multiple locations. The software displays statistics on the number of commenters supporting or opposing specific regulations and lets administrators gain visibility into comment themes, content posted, sentiments, date of posting, and attachments.

Organizations can also import required contacts to the platform including details such as name, email, phone number, and issues. It also offers mobile applications for Android and iOS devices, enabling organizations to create actions, engage with stakeholders, and receive alerts about legislative activities.

Comprehensive Legislative Tracker

Reviewed on 2019/06/11

Pros

This is a great tool that has made tracking bills across the country easy. It also has great collaboration tools for sharing updates and communicating within our team.

Cons

Some aspects of the software can be difficult to figure out - for example, setting up search terms for alerts. Once it's set up, though, it's easy to use.

Great "Government Relations Management" Solution

Reviewed on 2019/06/05

My overall experience has been fantastic, and we're happy to have renewed.

My overall experience has been fantastic, and we're happy to have renewed.

Pros

The overall "Government Relations Management" capabilities of FiscalNote elevate it leaps and bounds above the competition. Being able to easily track my actions of those and my team means that we can see when contacts have been made with an office and easily work together in an industry where we're not always in the same physical location.

Cons

I would love to be able to attach documents to individual actions. For example, being able to attach a support letter to an action of having sent that support letter.

For the money, we were generally happy with FiscalNote software. It was a cheap option that served our purposes, though not to its full potential. We've since switched to a different software that, while more expensive, has offered a much higher rate of conversion and a higher ROI.

Pros

FiscalNote was great at allowing our organization to keep track of all of our grassroots advocates. They offered a top of options to help track/sort that I have not seen from other companies, and allows the admins of the software to run various reports on their own without having to contact their account representative.

Cons

The design of email messages from this software was super bland, as were the standing pages it allowed you to create. Drafting a message was difficult, and they didn't even look good when sent. Plus, nothing was mobile optimized so we got complaints from our younger advocates about ease of use. Generally, it seemed the whole process was more difficult than it needed to be.

Really great software. Keeps us in the know with changes in the regulatory landscape. Love getting alerts and love the visual aspects (maps)

Pros

- Ongoing alerts
- Maps/visually appealing
- User friendly
- Direct source to bill
- Custom reports
- Ability to share summary page with individuals who are not a user
- Discovery alerts pick up on good/relevant material
- Like the option to add own bill summary

Cons

- Hard to search enacted bills over a longer period of time
- Wish there was a way to "star" or "flag" a bill as high important so that when updated bill alerts come through, it is clear which ones I should tune in to first

I use this ti track legislation on particular issues across 50 state legislatures, and some federal tracking as well. Great contact information for legislators and staff as well as great content on legislation as well.

Pros

The first Government Affairs legislative tracker with a comprehensive State level Database, staff has quick response times, and very responsive to user feedback. Excellent service. Great mobile app as well.

Cons

There is nothing i do not like about this proigram.
