IdeaScale Used for 24 Government Sites
Seattle-based Survey Analytics has rolled out a total of 24 crowdsourcing websites for U.S. government agencies to help them solicit and manage feedback from citizens. Financial details of the current partnerships weren’t given. The sites are powered by IdeaScale, the company’s software platform for hosting and managing feedback from communities and customers. Last May, the White House announced it was using IdeaScale to power its Open Government Dialogue site. And this past weekend, California’s chief technology officer, P.K. Agarwal, said he is using IdeaScale to help gather ideas to improve the state’s IT systems. Survey Analytics has been bootstrapped since 2004 and is led by CEO and co-founder Vivek Bhaskaran.
