Here at Domi we're big on accelerated impact, and we think you would agree that if there is anything that could afford to move a little faster, it's politics. As the third largest state in the Union and an economy trending with tech news, Florida has a prime opportunity to blaze a digital trail on both sides of the aisle. Strategic Digital Services, a Tallahassee-based tech company, wants to be the one to blaze that trail. Since launching out of Domi the day our doors opened, SDS has grown from a team of 3 to 7--all in less than a year's time. They credit Domi Station with helping them locate and secure talented team members. Working to bridge the tech gap in professional politics, SDS is guiding Florida’s political industry toward bold strategies and innovative technologies.
21st Century Tools for 21st Century Politics
When it comes to the rough and tumble world of politics, SDS cofounders Matt Farrar and Joe Clements have been around the electoral block. They share nearly two decades of experience in lobbying and campaigning, putting them in a unique position to bring advanced digital, data, and technological methodologies to the Sunshine State. “We're passionate about the powerful results that can be attained through the use of data and technology," said Farrar. "We pour that passion into our products and our work for clients."
The company's pedigree is impressive. A Panama City native, Farrar spent the last decade in Tallahassee, moving between Timmins Consulting and his own digital media consulting practice. Clements, a Rhodes and Truman Scholar, has worked for not one but two Republican Speakers of the House. In 2014, he was named among the state's 30 under 30 Rising Political Stars by SaintPetersBlog. Transitioning from hustling exclusively for clients, Farrar and Clements caught the entrepreneurial bug and, backed up by their growing team, have spent the last few months focused on the development of Bundl.
Introducing Bundl, A Better Way to Track Political Contributions
Bundl, which launched Monday, took full advantage of Tallahassee's political klout. The team stormed Downtown, making their way to the Capitol as they handed out bright green invites. For politicos everywhere, Bundl's value proposition is short and sweet: Political contributions made easy. The app upends all-too-common and painstakingly antiquated reporting methods (we're looking at you, spreadsheets). It optimizes the contribution process by tracking and analyzing funds from the moment a check is requested to the moment it lands in the hands of a campaign or cause. The well-designed dashboard provides Florida lobbying firms and political fundraisers at-a-glance contribution management in real-time and across all devices, mobile or otherwise. Indeed, Bundl is a tool for shaping the future of politics, and we're proud to say it was built right here in Tallahassee.
