Open Debate offers a lot more than a ‘normal’ website can. The front end is a branded project website which enables visitors to engage by registering and submitting feedback; but the real show-stopper is the secure ‘admin area’.
It’s our live web-based admin area that adds real value to the consultation process: it enables you to see who’s engaging online, respond to questions and comments, send out news alerts, identify key themes, view questionnaire results, keep a contact log and generate reports. All of this means your consultation project is fully auditable and your data is robust.
Without Open Debate, consultation feedback is likely to come into your inbox. This means you’ll probably spend precious time adding data to a spreadsheet (or similar) that needs to be managed and reported on manually. By investing in Open Debate, the process is streamlined and your confidential data is easy to manage and kept safe on our secure servers.
