Many of us are on the lookout for really good affordable tools, right? But comparing tools, testing them, evaluating, deciding if they're worth the money, in some cases negotiating the best deal...it can be hard to find the time.
SMT is constantly researching and evaluating tools, trying them out on campaigns we help with and learning from organizing groups about what they like and why. Where we can we negotiate lower prices so that smaller budget groups can access some of the best tools. We also do cost-sharing on some expensive tools.
In order to avoid any conflicts of interest, SMT accepts absolutely no compensation or rewards of any kind from any companies or tool providers. SMT maintains an arms-length relationship with all tool providers to ensure an objective and unbiased evaluation for movement organizations.
