For government and local authority planners, planning and environmental consultants, developers and contractors, the need to consult widely and frequently, at many levels, is a major factor.
Planning and environmental projects raise issues and options that require close collaborative partnerships across multiple parties and disciplines, as well as ensuring stakeholder and community buy-in through informal and formal public consultation.
INOVEM Inclusionware™ solutions designed for and widely used in planning and environmental fields include Team Collaboration, Project & Partnership Portal
, Development Project Portal
and Bid & Tender Management
for helping to manage major projects, eConsultation
, Stakeholder & Community Portal
and Planning Consultation
to manage statutory consultation and engagement goals.
"We were particularly impressed with the way in which INOVEM’s software could be presented using our client’s existing website brand, to increase the level of trust amongst the stakeholders involved. We also required a technology partner that could provide a robust and well-supported, yet cost-effective solution that could be quickly adapted to the needs of the project."
Peter Davis, Entec UK Ltd
"Having INOVEM eConsultation has really helped improve the way we engage with, and make our LDF documents available to our stakeholders and key interested people. The web based software has proved very adaptive, flexible and easy to use. It has made a real difference to how we can use the web to communicate with and get people involved in contributing to our Core Strategy and supporting LDF programme. It has also greatly improved the speed with which we can analyse and respond to the comments made."
