Government affairs are increasingly consequential.

GRM, or “Government Relationship Management,” puts the most important aspects of modern government affairs — information discovery, tracking, network building, and response coordination — into a single, accessible working environment, and connects everything together with analytics that allow deeper insights into issues, players, and relationships.  Through state of the art collaboration tools, GRM extends the opportunity for an entire enterprise to share knowledge and coordinate actions around government activity.

GRM quite literally reinvents the conduct of government affairs.

Why hasn’t technology changed government relations the way it’s changed everything else — from sales, to manufacturing, to customer support?

At FiscalNote, we think that’s because today’s government affairs teams need something better than just digital versions of the tools they’ve always relied on — they need a fundamentally better way to master issues, build networks, and work with colleagues and stakeholders across the country, and around the world. That better way? We built it — and we call it GRM.

ANALYSIS

GRM gives you far more than raw data — built-in data analytics and analysis enables you to quickly sort through thousands of bills, legislators, and agencies to discover what matters, and what it means to you. FiscalNote’s built-in analytics allow you to:

  • Use legislator analytics to assess everything from effectiveness (overall, as a co-sponsor, and by issue) to relative ideology, to alignment with your priorities
  • Plan your response with likely outcomes for every bill, and even individual vote breakdowns via the virtual whipboard
  • Find similar bills (across states), similar legislators, and even compare differences between versions of federal bills
  • Assess public sentiment on federal regulation with detailed analysis of public comments that measures stance and tone of language
