The range of project types in the world of online engagement/ outreach is very broad - ranging from multi-million dollar infrastructure projects affecting tens of thousands of people through to consultation with small community groups on a project such as a skate park design.

Different projects will require different tools; and often projects will require a collection of tools to effectively reach a broad audience. Here at Social Pinpoint we like to think our online tools are pretty awesome; but we acknowledge that our customers will often need to use other digital engagement tools in order to make the most out of their consultation.

In the world of software, the products that seem to have the most success are those that can easily communicate with other software products, as this gives the customer control. You can choose the best of breed rather than being locked down by a particular vendor.

Right from the early days we have provided a secure API (application programming interface) to allow other tools to integrate, extract data and receive notifications from Social Pinpoint.

Examples of current integrations include Slack, Engagement HQ and Consultation Manager. Further, by using our embed code our tools can easily be added to your current website, your Facebook page or Survey Monkey project. You can also create 'zaps' using Zapier to integrate Social Pinpoint to applications such as Gmail, Evernote, Trello and more!

We want to empower your organisation to get the best results possible and will always make sure that we make it easy to share data with your other business tools and systems.

If you would like to connect Social Pinpoint to any of your existing applications, contact us and we can point you in the right direction!
