In the world of public policy, choosing the right legislative tracking tool is key. Policy teams need comprehensive, intuitive, and forward-thinking solutions. When comparing Plural vs. Bloomberg Government, the choice is clear.

When comparing legislative tracking tools, it’s essential to focus on key aspects that make a real difference. While both Plural and Bloomberg Government offer robust solutions, a closer look reveals why Plural is the preferred choice. 

Let’s take a look at four critical components of an effective legislative tracking tool:

Legislative Data and Tracking

In the world of public policy, success is all about finding what you need, when you need it. Plural’s powerful data and search capabilities make it the superior legislative tracking tool. 

While Bloomberg Government offers basic tracking solutions, Plural takes it a notch higher. Plural offers coverage of all 50 United States, U.S. Congress, and select territories. Plus, Plural goes a step further for those tracking legislation beyond the United States. Our legislative tracking tool incorporates data from Nigeria and South Africa.

Public policy moves fast, and your legislative tracking tool should help you stay up to speed. Bloomberg Government’s insufficient data scraping cadence often leaves users with out-of-date information. Plural provides more detailed, real-time legislative updates. As such, Plural ensures users have the most current information at their fingertips. This is crucial for professionals who need to stay ahead in the fast-paced world of policy.

AI-Powered Insights

Beyond data, Bloomberg Government offers little tools to help users understand public policy. Plural uses AI to offer a deeper, more nuanced understanding of policy. Our AI-powered tools help you foresee legislative outcomes and make more strategic decisions. With Plural, your policy team will have a significant edge.

With Plural, it’s easy to use AI to deepen your policy insights. Find similar bills, including companion, reintroduced, and omnibus bills, all in one place. Search across jurisdictions to understand the legislative landscape of a given issue area. Discover which bills are likely to gain momentum and adapt your strategy accordingly. Plus, users can now generate bill summaries using AI! Save time reading dense, detailed bill text and discover the key aspects of a bill, all with a click of a button.

Plural’s comprehensive bill detail pages showcase every key detail about a bill in an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

Plural is designed with your needs in mind. As such, it’s easy to navigate and customize. Add unlimited users, and create workspaces tailored to your team. By contrast, Bloomberg Government’s interface is cluttered and confusing.

Organization and Collaboration

Public policy work is messy, but your tracking tool shouldn’t be. When it comes to organization and collaboration, Plural offers an integrated and seamless experience. Plural facilitates improved collaboration and efficient organization. As such, Plural makes it easier for teams to work together and stay informed. By contrast, Bloomberg Government is not as streamlined or user-centric.
