Smart DialogueTM

People needing to consult often face a number of challenges including how to:

  • Manage large numbers of responses
  • Be open and transparent and keep an audit trail
  • Make sense of detailed qualitative comments
  • Provide feedback to participants and decision makers
  • Use and be seen to use results to inform decision making.

We have created Smart Dialogue to help you to address these challenges. As an online consultation package it can be used alongside the processing of conventional paper and e-mail consultations. It provides you with a simple to use analysis tool and the ability to display results clearly and easily on a website.

To use Smart DialogueTM:

  • You provide us with your consultation document and a set of questions you want to ask. We will then set up a dedicated consultation website branded to your specification.
  • The consultation will be set to start and finish on the dates you require and we will send periodic reminder e-mails to anyone who has registered to participate.
  • At the end of the consultation period we will provide you with the data on our Dialogue DX system which allows you to analyse and collate responses.
  • The results will then be made available on the website in an easily accessible format, allowing participants to browse all responses and to identify those that particularly interest them.

Smart Dialogue has been developed using all our experience of setting up and running bespoke consultations for organisations, large and small. It takes the core elements of Dialogue by Design's highly successful online consultation service and packages them so that any organisations can use the website component and the analysis tool in a cost-effective manner.

Smart Dialogue allows a complete consultation to be carried out effectively at a very competitive price, and the methodology is broad enough to apply to the majority of consultation types. The Smart Dialogue framework is flexible so that if a consultation requires extra components or services, these can be costed in separately, while retaining the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of the core Smart Dialogue system.

Price and further information

The Smart Dialogue package costs £4,900 per consultation with discounts if your organisation wishes to use it on multiple occasions.
