Why Government Communicators Use PublicInput for Community Engagement

⊕ To offer engagement opportunities based on resident needs and preferences.

⊕ To capture and store resident data in one place.

⊕ To increase internal efficiency — regardless of project complexity or engagement volume.

Become multilingual by default.

All residents, especially those with Limited English Proficiency, should be able to provide feedback in their native language to increase equity and inclusion. With PublicInput, reaching your non-English speaking target audience just got a whole lot easier. Our Platform provides multilingual closed captioning without all the hassle and increases equity by keeping Linguistically Isolated Communities informed and allowing them to participate in their native language.

Increase access to lower barriers to public participation.

Different types of residents require different modes of communication. Mobile-friendly websites, paper surveys, text messages, email, virtual town halls, in-person public meetings, to name a few.

Your community engagement process should be focused on meeting resident engagement needs and preferences. PublicInput helps you execute the most impactful and successful approaches, both online or offline, to achieve your desired outcome — all in one dashboard.

PublicInput's equity mapping system

Achieve operational efficiency.

It’s not uncommon for a communications and marketing office to feel understaffed, and that could largely be due to the fact that current tools are not working holistically, together. Each outreach effort creates a new set of data, and each lives in its own system, folder, spreadsheet, or worse, file cabinet.

Thankfully, PublicInput gives you an organized approach to public participation with a well-defined public participation database.

Simplify the task of community engagement →

Close the feedback loop with your residents.

Increasing public trust starts by following up with participants to share updates and outcomes, be it at the end of the public involvement effort or in phases.

PublicInput helps you tell a clear and concise story by letting you aggregate comments from all engagement channels, find common themes with comment tagging and analysis, quickly visualize data, share real-time results, and create meeting-ready reports.

Create dynamic, real-time interactive reports →

Show proof for the depth of your reach.

Sharing community efforts with regulators and auditors at the state and federal level is often mandated. Having a central source of truth can simplify documentation, report generation, and compliance. With PublicInput, you can ensure accuracy and reduce human error with automated processes, keep resident data organized in a way that is easy to understand, and automatically document all input and communication.
