Surveys for public sector employees, civil servants and politicians
Gathering public opinion and collecting feedback from communities is imperative in many industries, no more so than in the public sector, government services and politics. Find out how your local area feels about certain topics, canvas political opinion from constituents and discover the issues that matter most in your communities, all with user-friendly online surveys. SmartSurvey's professional software enables the collection and analysis of feedback and data in a quick, secure and flexible manner.
Improving public sector and government services with online surveys
Public sector services are driven by the needs and requirements of the people they care for. Conducting online surveys is a quick and affordable method of community engagement and gathers the feedback needed to make service delivery as efficient, effective and budget-conscious as possible. For example, the Metropolitan police used SmartSurvey online surveys to reach out and get real responses to real questions. With this feedback they were able to set policing priorities for their communities which were in line with what their communities wanted.
With online surveys, policy makers and local authorities can quickly and effectively get to the heart of what matters most to their local communities. Surveys can be created and distributed to collect feedback on any issue; anything from leisure, tourism and town events to school facilities, public transport and new cycle paths. SmartSurvey online surveys can also be completed on any mobile device and written in any language; two very important features to ensure surveys are accessible to all and generate high response rates.
By surveying their constituents, members of political parties can map the political landscape before elections, analyse the effectiveness of debates and demonstrations, and understand what changes and promises voters will rally behind. Online surveys are a very efficient way of collecting and analysing these vital statistics and have the power to change the course of political campaigns for the better.
