In all walks of life, consultation is becoming a necessary pre-requisite of many major decisions.
In the public sector, and in many related areas of the private sector, consulting stakeholders, interest groups, communities or the public at large is frequently a requirement. In business and organisations, in many instances it's simply best practice to consult all interested parties before making a critical decision.
And now, in the Web 2.0 era, with online networking and self-service communities becoming the norm, e-consultation is the way everyone expects to consult, and be consulted.
Locally, regionally and nationally, government and other public organisations are looking for software that will enable them to manage a wide variety of consultation exercises, using variable media and tactics, and handling large volumes of responses.
At the same time, making best use of online methods must not create exclusion - e-consultation software must co-exist with other engagement methods required to involve those who do not have access to technology.
And finally, of course, this must all be achieved at minimal cost in software and overheads, with a falling long-term cost curve and the lowest possible costs of ownership.
