Campaign Tracker was created by NewsGator’s Software-as-a-Service division which handles syndication services, and Microsoft’s Mobile2Market program. It’ll run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 and 6 devices, as well as Microsoft Pocket PC devices. The service itself will go online early next week.
Post updated to correct the application’s name from Candidate Tracker to Campaign Tracker.
