We are pleased to announce that Social Pinpoint (Consultation Manager’s partner company) and Hello Lamp Post have come together through a strategic partnership to bring our clients and industry network the world’s most innovative community engagement experience. Combined, we offer more extensive community consultation, consumer research, playful engagement, and storytelling globally to empower the voices of communities and individuals. Hello Lamp Post, the playful platform that lets you chat with street objects, is a UK based company that brings cities to life by inviting the public to interact with their built environment, while the platform collects data and insight to drive more informed decision making in the development and planning of cities for the future. Driving rich two-way communication, citizens can scan the QR code on a physical object within their neighborhood and start a conversation through SMS about their views and suggestions or learn about local tourism and culture through engaging storytelling.
James Moore, Managing Director of Social Pinpoint, said of the partnership, “Combined, Hello Lamp Post and Social Pinpoint bring a new era of public consultation to communities by meeting people where they already are; online or actively engaging in their community spaces. Evolving to meet the needs of our communities enables our clients to gather greater feedback from diverse audiences and richer insights to drive more informed placemaking decisions”. “Ongoing conversations with industry professionals from within our global network reinforces the importance of creating convenient, timely, and engaging methods of public participation to drive outcomes. Validating our decisions through our clients, we are focused on continuously innovating our product suite and partnerships to create connected, thriving communities, and our next phase with Hello Lamp Post enables us to achieve that”, he concluded. With both companies focused on innovating the community engagement sector Tiernan Mines, CEO & Co-Founder of Hello Lamp Post said, “Our strategic partnership with Social Pinpoint will make a huge difference in allowing local governments to better serve their communities around the world. We’re really excited about the more rounded approach to public engagement and communication that this partnership will bring – delivering results that will positively impact the UK, US and Australian market (to start with)”.
