Move forward with certainty with

our virtual engagement solutions

Community Engagement

Run an interactive real-time discussion without having to bring people together. Provide your community with an update on issues followed a moderated conversation to share, test and score ideas and perspectives about those issues

Focus Groups

Like a face-to-face focus group, Synthetron allows you to test policy, product or service ideas; outline proposals via words, videos or images; and engage participants in an interactive discussion to understand what they think and value.


A Synthetron dialogue allows a large number of people, working in virtual and interconnected small groups, to respond to conference presentations, share their views and crowdsource ways to apply the ideas coming from the presentations.


Email, discussion forums and video conferencing have their limits when you need more than 10 people to develop ideas or plans. Synthetron enables you to run real-time moderated discussions in an efficient and engaging way to gather actionable insights and co-create solutions.

Synthetron is an online platform that provides decision makers with critical insights of the views of citizens, staff, members or customers.

It’s a dynamic virtual platform for enabling citizen participation, facilitating change management, undertaking member engagement, and gaining customer insights.

Synthetron helps unlock the answers you need via a real time moderated online conversation.

Its quick, convenient, easy and safe to use for conversations with 10 people or 1000 people per session.

Used by world-class organisations, it delivers actionable insights fast to uncover what people really think and value.
