CitizenLab helps local governments reach more citizens, manage their ideas efficiently, and make decisions based on real-time data. CitizenLab introduces an improved way of local democracy for the digital era. Their cloud-based SaaS platform facilitates a two-way communication between the city and its citizens by matching the right urban challenges with the right citizens based on their expertise and/or interests. Citizens post proposals, elaborate on them with others and set their priorities by e-voting. By automatically analyzing citizens’ feedback and opinions, the platform helps cities tap into the collective intelligence of citizens, whilst enabling them to reach out to more citizens and saving them resources.
