Overview

Turbocharge phone banking with OpenVPB, VAN, and BlueVote. Call and text with 2 clicks!

TurboVPB speeds up calling and texting with EveryAction's Open Virtual Phone Bank (OpenVPB), VAN, DNC VoteBuilder, and BlueVote. Skip typing in phone numbers by hand. TurboVPB automatically sends contacts' details to your phone so you can call and text with just 2 clicks. You'll be ready to call in <2 minutes — no account or mobile app needed. In addition to speeding up making calls, TurboVPB makes it easy to send text messages to contacts when they don't answer the phone or when you want to send them more information after a call. Configure one or more message templates, TurboVPB will automatically fill in the contact's name, and you can send each message with the push of a button. TurboVPB was originally developed by a volunteer for the Sunrise Movement but any volunteers, organizations, or campaigns phone banking with these tools are very welcome to use it.

I love it. I agree with all the rave reviews. So easy to get started with the QR code. It keeps track of how many calls I made. I even enjoy the confetti every 10 calls. And I especially LOVE the text feature. If a voicemail box is not set up or full, bingo, off goes the text. We can prepare the text with our full message, including the candidate's website or other information we would normally have to spell out for the voter. Sometimes we get a call or text back! Rarely do they say STOP if y... Show more

I have issues with my headset microphone using the computer to dial, so this extension has been a game changer for me. And when I found I could write my own text templates to use when the voter needs more information, double-wow. Thanks for a great tool!

This extension is the best thing since sliced bread! I have a volunteer phone banking group and TurboVPB allows us to use OpenVPB just as if we were using VPB Connect. And, it is free. The other way it is useful is for texting my volunteers to alert them to opportunities, meetings, etc. I just format an open vpb, connect via turboVPB and within ten minutes I can text 300 plus people. I use it not only to invite, but to confirm attendance, to remind before an event, and that sort of thing... Show more
