A digital consultation platform that gets you from data to insight transparently and robustly.
Magpie is designed with to make participation easy, so it's ideal for consultations, surveys and any other situation where you need to receive and analyse responses to open and closed questions.
Magpie is a consultation platform designed with real consultations in mind. It collates data from any source, because in the real world not everyone responds online. It enables transparent, sentence-level thematic analysis, because you need to be confident you’ve considered all the issues. And it has a powerful, customisable reporting dashboard that puts results at your fingertips.
Our team of engagement experts are on hand to help you get the most out of the system, and we offer scalable packages of analysis support when you need extra resource to deal with your data.
Magpie is the latest version of the system we have successfully used since 1999, running consultations, of every size, on every topic and for a diverse range of clients. We have taken all the lessons learned from dealing with hundreds of thousands of responses to give you a system which makes even the biggest and most controversial consultations easy to handle.
Everything! We have built on our many years of experience in consultations to create a fully featured system that covers every step of a consultation. Magpie embodies our trademark rigour in dealing with responses, ensuring that every word is read, analysed and influences the findings. The system:
All communications with Magpie are transferred over HTTPS. This means that everything you type is encrypted on your computer before being sent to us and visa versa, so that no-one else can read it.
Magpie is hosted off-site on Microsoft Azure virtual servers. This means we can easily recover all data if there was ever a problem at our offices.
These virtual servers utilise the Azure SQL Server, which means that storage is both secure and easily scalable.
Magpie also utilises the Microsoft Azure Business to Consumer service (B2C) to manage user authentications. This standardises the storage and authentication processes on a scalable, secure platform. It also uses security 'tokens' for authentication which ensure that your information is protected.
