Fresh Ideas....New Perspectives.

Unlike all other community engagement and consultation software, EngagementHQ by Bang the Table offers a spectrum of engagement tools ranging from open tools such as online discussion forums, idea sharing, Q&A, storytelling, guestbooks and interactive mapping to the more traditional tools such as surveys, submissions and quick polls.

EngagementHQ provides capacity for unlimited consultation projects each of which can incorporate the sequential or combined use of multiple feedback tools including online forum discussions, surveys and quick polls, petitions, questions and answers, formal submissions, emails, storytelling, interactive mapping and a guest book supported by project specific news feeds, data base email and e-news capabilities. Each consultation project is further supported with a project library, video and photo gallery, project specific FAQs, project timeline and key dates in addition to widgets for embedding rich media.

  • Ideas

    Ideas is a tool for the early, or divergent, stages of a community engagement program. It is used to gather lots and lots of ideas quickly from as many people as possible, and then to carry out a preliminary prioritisation (or sifting) of those ideas. It is not designed to provoke deeper and more deliberative consideration of the proposed solutions. This is for a later phase in the process.

  • Stories

    Stories are at the heart of our experience. The story we tell ourselves and the stories we share determine who we are and how we respond to the world around us. Sharing stories affects both the story teller and the listener (or reader) more profoundly at both a emotional and cognitive level than sharing facts.

  • Q&A

    Q&A is an issues management and communication risk mitigation tool. It is a managed space for your community to ask you questions and for you to respond either publicly (to create a Q&A library) or privately.

  • Places

    Places is our spatial consultation tool. It is a simple way to gather community feedback (via a fully functioning survey) geographically. Community members simply click on the map, fill in the survey, select a "category" (if you have built any), and hit enter.


  • Guestbook

    The Guesbook is a simple space for gathering text based feedback. It is not a discussion space. It is not dialogue space. It is not a debating space. It does not permit rich media uploads. It can be pre or post comment moderated, so further reduce any perceived risk. It is the simplest of tools.


  • Forums

    Forums are a space for discussion, dialogue and debate. The tone and tenor can vary depending on the nature of the issues, any local history, the social context, and the specific people involved. Which is why we like to moderate the discussion 24/7 for you.

  • Surveys

    Surveys are consultation tools, rather than engagement tools. But, they have two benefits. People are generally used to filling them in, so you tend to high response rates; and they can provide you with quantifiable data for analysis. Try using them in conjunction with other tools.
