Since launching in March 2016, Engagement Hub continues to evolve in response to the changing stakeholder engagement landscape, the push from the community to participate in decision making, and the collaboration requirements of our clients.
Over these last few years, our talented team of software engineers have developed and deployed 104 new features and enhancements. That is an average of 2.4 new feature releases and enhancements per month – all to make the lives of our (and your) stakeholders easier.
We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved with Engagement Hub, and we’ve put together a timeline to show you how much our easy to use consultation software has grown.
