A New Era of Artificial Intelligence

Objective Keyplan uses game-changing technology to transform the planning process

In the ever-evolving landscape of public consultation, harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can revolutionise the way planners manage and respond to representations at scale. From streamlining formal consultations to employing advanced sentiment analysis, AI offers a myriad of capabilities that can significantly enhance efficiency and decision-making processes.

Efficient Formal Consultation with Objective Keyplan:

One of the key benefits of integrating AI into consultation processes is the ability to gain efficiencies in managing formal consultations. With the help of Objective Keyplan, responses to representations, officer notes, and interactions with neighbouring boroughs and associations become not only more streamlined but also scalable. The system analyses the representation and auto-generates a summary, facilitating swift and effective responses within the consultation framework. Furthermore, notes and comments can be shared with your team through the integrated system, fostering collaboration and enhancing overall productivity. 

AI Sentiment Analysis for Informed Decision-Making:

AI brings a game-changing element to the consultation arena with Objective Keyplan’s Sentiment Analysis capabilities. By evaluating responses for sentiment—whether positive, negative, or neutral—planners and managers can get an understanding of the overall sentiment of the consultation. The system's Auto-Tag feature suggests relevant keywords or subjects in each response, simplifying the analysis process. Alternatively, users can apply Custom Tags, tailoring the analysis to specific needs for a more personalised and insightful approach to consultation data. These Auto-Tags can be customised for each event.

Built-In Redaction Tool for Secure Data Management:

Maintaining the confidentiality and security of sensitive information is paramount in consultation management. AI offers a built-in redaction tool that simplifies the process of removing sensitive details from representations. This not only ensures compliance with privacy regulations but also allows for streamlined response acceptance, increasing the transparency of the consultation. Local Planning Authorities (LPA) can choose between reporting with redacted or original versions, providing flexibility in managing and sharing information. Uploading redacted files enhances the secure management of personal data, contributing to accurate reporting and public trust in the consultation process.

Incorporating AI into consultation management is not just a technological leap; it's a strategic move toward efficiency, accuracy, and improved plan-making. From the seamless handling of formal consultations through Objective Keyplan to the nuanced insights derived from AI sentiment analysis, and the secure data management facilitated by the built-in redaction tool, LPA’s stand to benefit significantly from leveraging the power of AI in the consultation process. As we embrace the era of advanced technologies, AI emerges as a valuable ally in shaping the future of public engagement and digital planning.
