Sometimes a client needs to know some basic facts and figures to inform their project planning before they get into the nuts and bolts of preparing communications and engagement strategies and plans.
That’s how Bugseye can assist by offering our environmental scanning and stakeholder analysis services for planning, development and infrastructure project planning. For as little as $2500, we can prepare an environmental scan fact book and stakeholder analysis for any project or issue within Australia to provide context and to help our client to understand relevant issues and stakeholders.
Information typically includes demographic snapshots of the local residential and worker population of an area, profiles of local businesses, community groups and traditional and social media outlets, a profile of the local council, elected members and elected representatives and their interests. We also customise this to include additional information tailored to the requirements of the client and their project.
Bugseye has been appointed to the NSW Government Architect’s Strategy and Design Excellence Prequalification Scheme, which is focused on the delivery of strategic planning advice and design excellence, quality and innovation in the built environment.
We have been appointed for our stakeholder engagement and management services under the strategy component of the Scheme.
The Scheme offers a pool of prequalified service providers to assist NSW Government agencies and statutory corporations in engaging external expertise to assist in delivering quality outcomes in the built environment.

Over the last 12 months we have added some new valuable features to our Pinpoint for Schools product for private schools across Australia to help them to better understand what is happening in their enrolment catchments and to better identify trends and opportunities.
Some of the additional value-adds include:
Drive time analysis – we create different drive times (i.e. 10, 20 or 30 minutes) and then put a school’s students into these drive times to see what enrolment patterns look like. We can then match this back to the demographic profiles for the different drive times
Launch files – these are an easy to use feature to help a school to share electronic maps quickly and easily with anyone with a browser/internet access
Technical enhancements and cloud based map servers – these have been designed to speed up map load and reliability
Market share and analysis – to help answer questions about market share and where the catchment overlaps with a school’s nearest competitors
Population projections – for local government areas for the next 10 years and beyond.
