for Environmental and Planning Consultants
In today's planning environment, development and infrastructure projects have an increasing requirement to inform and seek feedback from key stakeholders and local communities.

Success in development today requires effective consultation, starting early in pre-application, reaching all potential stakeholder groups, and continuing at stages throughout the project's duration. An online portal for data collection, consultation and information provision is now standard.

Multiple stakeholder and advisory groups have to be involved, ranging from local grass-roots communities and their institutions, through local interest groups to specialist contributors on environmental, social, economic, engineering and sustainability issues.

Managing all this so as to satisfy official planning policy, while maintaining the closest working relationship with clients, can be a significant challenge for Environmental and Planning Consultants.


INOVEM Inclusionware™ provides a rapidly-implemented solution for Consultants to involve, consult and manage all stakeholders in a development project of any size and duration.

With our INOVEM Development Project Portal solution, you can quickly and affordably establish a web environment for your client to support a range of stakeholder engagement techniques in support of their project, from team collaboration right through to wide-ranging community consultation.

Set up in only a few days, but scalable and adaptable to cope with the largest, most complex and longestrunning projects, the INOVEM Development Project Portal fits seamlessly within an existing web presence ? your own, your client's or the project's dedicated web environment.


  • rapid-access involvement through INOVEM Connect, an easy-to-use tool for project managers to quickly set up networks that enable stakeholders to receive information, discuss issues and provide feedback online
  • INOVEM Consult, a highly-configurable framework for managing, deploying and analysing formal and informal consultations through your choice of media: interactive questionnaires, feedback against sectional documents or online discussions
  • our powerful team working environment, INOVEM Collaborate, designed to improve project management, group-based communications and the rapid, effective sharing of information among public and private communities
  • simple, easy-to-manage multi-user document creation, workflow and PDF publishing capabilities through INOVEM Co-Publish

Your portal will also benefit from the unique INOVEM Chameleon™ approach, delivering seamless integration into your branded communications, now and into the future. Instead of just offering 'your logo here' branding on a standard design template, we can integrate the solution fully within your own stylesheets and URL ? so your stakeholders will see all communication coming from you, not an unknown third party.


INOVEM Inclusionware solutions have already helped many public and private sector organisations in the UK and US to engage with their key stakeholders and the wider public.

Our browser-accessed software is designed to be easy to obtain, set up, manage and use. It can be purchased or provided as a fully supported and secure hosted service, providing variable levels of authorised access.

All INOVEM Inclusionware meets government and Internet accessibility standards (WAI-AAA). It can be integrated with your other key applications such as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel®.

As part of our service offering we provide you with highly-responsive, high-quality support to help you get the best out of our software, and adapt to changing circumstances. Training is provided, but our system is so easy to use that users can easily train each other and new starters can be up and running very quickly.

As a supplier to you, we add value to your client offering: unlike some specialist providers of consultation-related technologies, we do not aim to compete with your professional consultancy services.

"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."
