Community Inclusion Made Easy

System Customisation Options

Community Heart Shape

We enable communities to see Projects, Polls and Policies, ask questions and clarify preferences.

Each system is very customisable, with the colours, logo, heading and web-address etc, and the ability to enable or disable available sections including Projects, Polls and Policies.

The registration process can either require admin to first approve each registration manually or approve most registrations automatically by matching details with a database of constituents, or admin can enable instant registration and participation with easy ability to review activity and suspend any suspicious accounts retrospectively including comments and votes etc.

Live Community Voting Systems

We like them because they’re an independent business with great customer service, because they have solid ethics in terms of transparency and data privacy, and because they offered the specific participatory budgeting and preferential voting options we needed."
