Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
I’m not sure if the PublicInput Listen Plan is a good fit for my organization, are there other options?
The PublicInput Platform is designed to meet your organization where it is today, then scale to meet your needs as you evolve your engagement practice. We offer three plans with varying degrees of capabilities, designed to work for one or multiple departments and teams from 1 to 1000. Compare all three of our plans and pricing here.
What are some of the limitations of the Listen Plan?
The Listen Plan is for small teams, organizations with a limited budget, or infrequent initiatives. If you are interested in using only the most essential features to deliver a consistent, accessible, and predictable resident experience, this is the plan for you.
For organizations prioritizing representative feedback and data-driven decision making with frequent initiatives that often overlap, we typically recommend the Engage Plan for more engagement options, analysis and equity mapping tools, automated workflows, and enhanced multi-lingual support.
For organizations utilizing numerous point solutions to gather feedback and inform residents, we recommend the Engage Plus Plan to integrate disconnected engagement and communications solutions; to optimize investments for complex teams managing ongoing resident interactions; and to show statistically representative participation across hard-to-reach audiences and automate much of the analysis process.
