Citizen Engagement

Involve people. Improve decisions. Build trust.

Engage citizens in productive new ways online

Productive citizen involvement helps improve policy outcomes, and innovative online tools make managing citizen input easier while expanding engagement to a wider base. With about 80 percent of North America online, it is necessary to effectively leverage the most powerful communications media available.

Granicus’ Citizen Engagement tools are the most efficient way to hear from a broader group of residents. With SpeakUp and eComment, it’s easy for more people to contribute ideas for community improvement and provide feedback on current initiatives. These tools are a convenient way for citizens to stay engaged in the governing process and in turn, help the organization collect timely and actionable input from citizens.

Share Ideas

Allow the public to easily contribute ideas to a website dedicated to community idea sharing. As residents post ideas, other citizens, elected officials, and staff can join the conversation by voting for an idea, adding comments, and even sharing ideas to social networks.

Focus on important topics

With forums and groups, get feedback on a specific initiative or idea. All responses are related to your subject, helping you narrow ideas to what’s most important to the organization.

Make participation in public meetings simple and productive

Encourage citizens to comment on the issues at hand with an online form tied to your upcoming meeting agenda. Residents can leave feedback on agenda items from any Internet-connected device, making participation easy.

Simple integration with iLegislate®

Our Citizen Engagement software integrates with the Granicus iLegislate® mobile app to put public discussion at elected officials’ fingertips, providing instant idea demographics, direct agenda item feedback and opinion percentage reporting.
