Whether you’re planning a new development, updating your comprehensive plan, improving transit or envisioning the future of your community, sharing progress with and gathering input from the public are both key to the success of your project. Making those efforts intuitive on any device while keeping administrative overhead to a minimum can be a challenging endeavor.
EngagingPlans facilitates effective outreach and participation by guiding people seamlessly between offline, online and mobile experience. And it starts at $75 - actually only $50 per month until March 31, 2014!
EngagingPlans from Urban Interactive Studio is an intuitive, feature-rich content management system for project websites that allows planning and public engagement firms, non-profits and government agencies to facilitate broad-scale public outreach and participation.
EngagingPlans brings public involvement to the mobile age by offering a one-stop shop for sharing project updates and gathering citizen input. Engage more people both online and off, even catching them while they’re on-the-go.
Since EngagingPlans runs on the open source content management platform Drupal, we can offer you our basic version at a low monthly price, while being able to support large projects with highly custom functionality.
EngagingPlans solves the dilemma faced by many organizations as public communication moves increasingly online, and more citizens expect the convenience of having information available on the web. Agencies are recognizing the value of online communication with stakeholders, citizens, planners, and decision-makers, but often can’t afford the output of money and manpower traditionally required to maintain an effective web presence dedicated to a specific project.
EngagingPlans enables the rapid launch of a robust website and content management system, with minimal effort and no technical skills required.
One-stop Information Hub
Gone are the days of needing different outlets for every aspect of a public process. EngagingPlans keeps everything related to your project--documents, events, FAQs, updates--tidy and up-to-date in one location where it is easy for anyone to access.
EngagingPlans makes it easy to facilitate open and meaningful public interactions. Gather, compile and analyze feedback from surveys, or let your audience respond to questions about critical decisions.
Engage people while they’re out-and-about using their smartphones, relaxing in the backyard with their tablets, or at work in front of a desktop computer. Because there are no apps to download and install, using the site is easy and intuitive for everyone, regardless of the device they are using.
Reach More People
Social media integration allows your audiences to share responses, updates and events with their online networks on Facebook, Twitter and other popular social networking platforms. Let your users help you get the word out to people you might not currently be reaching.
Proven out-of-the-box functionality eliminates the need for building a new web platform from scratch, and our ready-to-use design makes it easy to get off the ground running. Best of all, EngagingPlans offers low-cost monthly subscriptions to help you reach your audience without breaking your budget.
The intuitive dashboard is simple to navigate and easy to learn, allowing you to make changes to your site without needing extra training or technical skills. Smart workflows simplify maintenance, for example by archiving events automatically.
