a citizen engagement platform for local government

Building greater participation

NETPopulis is built to provide citizens easy and effective ways to engage with their government for access to information that matters to them. At the same time it gives government all the tools needed to generate proactive and transparent communications facilitating crucial learning from citizens.

Communicate dynamically
With NETPopulis, citizens can decide what information they want and how they want to receive it by selecting publications and methods of interaction. With robust email, text, web, broadcast voice messaging tools government can deliver that information in ways that are effective, timely, personalized, and meaningful.

Build lasting engagement
Communicating with citizens becomes an interactive dialogue where everyone benefits. Easy, meaningful and productive interactions build trust and encourage continued interactions. Citizens see that government is working for them, and government learns what their citizens expect and want—and how best to provide it.

The Databank has been a critical tool for growing engagement and communications with my constituents. In 7 years of using the the platform, my list has grown nearly 7 fold, and the number of residents who regularly read my communications has increased 5 fold! This software is easy to use, and the support and training my staff and I receive on an ongoing basis has always been excellent.
