An unusually talkative Conservative staffer may have inadvertently helped CBC News glean exclusive details of a new mobile technology that will help Prime Minister Stephen Harper's team collect and sort voter information faster than ever before.

Conservative workers are already using a new smartphone and tablet-friendly app called CIMS to Go, or "C2G", as party members call it.

CIMS stands for Constituent Information Management System, the Conservatives' powerful voter information database. Along with voter lists and door-knocking data, anyone who has ever donated to the party, agreed to a lawn sign or even filled out an MP comment card is captured in the system.
