Web-based software for
public comments and
engagement campaigns

Transform your public comment management with SmartComment’s powerful tools.

SmartComment was founded to vastly improve the public comment process for environmentally impactful projects, rule changes, permit applications, and for agencies and organizations that need comprehensive comment support. Our innovative tool ensures transparency and accessibility for citizens and provides agencies with an unassailable method for effectively and efficiently responding to public comments.

Comment Analysis

Accept electronic comments alongside emails, letters, hearing transcripts, Regulations.gov submissions, and more. Comments are stored in a secure database where they can be organized by topic, digitally bracketed, and analyzed with charts and graphs.

Powerful Response Tools

Allowing unlimited users, SmartComment puts the agency and consultant in a real-time environment — no more manual updates or shared spreadsheets. When responses are complete, they’re cleanly exported along with comments into any required format.

Export Final Report

Instead of assembling your final document from comments and responses, a SmartComment export can be tailored to fit any report style or format required by your approving agency and output a final comment/response report specifically tailored to your needs.
