Screendoor: supercharged forms online
On February 12, 2015 we had a conversation with Joshua Goldstein, CEO of the Department of Better Technology about Screendoor, the flagship product of the Department of Better Technology. Screendoor is dedicated to make software that helps governments and non-profits better serve their communities. With Screendoor anyone can build forms using their free form editor, collect responses via web and mobile, and collaboratively sort, rank, and evaluate the responses.
