DbyD launches Smart DialogueT, a cost-effective framework for consultation
Consultations vary greatly in scope, objectives and methods used
and there are many ways of engaging with stakeholders, from using
the web to paper-based forms and public meetings.
We have created Smart Dialogue as a generic solution for organisations
needing the extra capacity or specialist knowledge of a consultancy
but at low cost. It is designed to be very broadly applicable and
to allow the flexibility to add extra components as required. At
its simplest it 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.
The Smart Dialogue core system applies to document-based consultations
carried out over the web; peripheral modules extend this functionality,
for example to allow paper-based forms to be processed.
