One tool to process all representations

Manage and process submissions efficiently.

Digitise offline submissions in seconds

Eliminate the time-consuming task of data entry, copying and pasting from letters and PDFs. Within seconds Objective Keyplan's Submission Management portal can convert and sort all offline submissions allowing you to easily process all responses.

Reduce the burden of manual processing

With all submissions in one place, you can save time and reduce the administrative burden of analysing and sorting. Automatically see Consultee Information, including Consultee Name, Responded Consultation Points, Date, and Status. Say goodbye to wrangling with multiple Excel files and documents.

Gain efficiencies with Keyword Tagging

Keyword Tagging allows you to label different topics or subjects to a direct submission e.g Environmental Plans - and easily filter and search everything related to that Tag. Drill down to an individual Consultee level to provide granular detail making it easy to manage submissions in volume.

Leverage the Power of AI

Leverage the Power of AI

AI provides advanced capabilities to manage your consultation.

Gain efficiencies with your Formal Consultation

Within Objective Keyplan AI analyses your submission and auto-generates a summary, enabling you to respond to submissions, officer notes, neighbouring boroughs, and associations more efficiently, at scale. Notes and comments can be shared with your team through the system.

AI Sentiment Analysis

AI evaluates responses for sentiment (positive, negative, neutral) empowering you to make informed decisions quickly. AI can Auto-Tag suggesting Keywords or Subjects in each response for easy analyses or you can apply Custom Tags which can be personalised for each consultation.

Built-in Redaction Tool

Easily redact sensitive information from submissions, keeping originals intact. Choose between reporting with redacted or original versions. Upload redacted files for secure management of personal information, streamlining response acceptance and ensuring accurate reporting.

Enhanced reporting functionality

Enhanced reporting functionality

At a glance, easily track and report on your consultation.

Streamline status updates

Tracking and managing comments, especially in large-scale consultations, can be challenging. Central Governments agencies can easily track the progress of each submission, filter by question or part of the document, ensuring that all feedback is reviewed and considered. Gain a holistic view of your consultation with real-time reports and dashboards.

Effective workload management

Objective Keyplan offers built-in tools that allow for efficient workload management by providing insights into the team's workload. Easily track and assign submissions to ensure all feedback is accounted for.

Demonstrate tracked changes

The proposed change functionality simplifies the process of producing a schedule of minor or major changes. Demonstrate the changes made to a plan based on public consultation by sending an annotated "tracked changes" version.

Audit-proof your processes

Generate a record of everything that has happened from evidence gathering, consultation and drafting the plan through to the final plan and policies. Present information easily showing the chain of evidence throughout your statutory planning process.
