Communities need safe, reliable and affordable water supplies – and delivering this requires investment, collaboration, cooperation and communication from everyone involved.

PlanEngageTM is a digital service from AECOM that makes it easy to collaborate in the planning and delivery of reliable water infrastructure, while also keeping communities informed at every stage of the project.

Improved collaboration and reporting

PlanEngage provides a secure and centralized online workspace where project teams can develop and manage the detailed reporting requirements of major water projects, with built-in collaborative editing and approval workflows.

Geographic Information System (GIS) clarity

Water organisations can easily communicate key project information in a highly visual way using PlanEngage’s embedded GIS mapping capability. Approved users can view proposed locations, environmental impacts, remediation efforts, sustainability targets and results and key project information, on any internet-connected device.

Communicate improved sustainability and energy efficiency

PlanEngage can help organizations fulfil their sustainability reporting requirements by embedding PowerBI dashboards, and easily integrating with other environmental reporting platforms.

Changes over time

Using GIS time-series in PlanEngage, it is now possible to show the impact of changes over time in flooding, water security or climate change. This greatly improves public understanding because users can easily see the impact on a particular location. For example, a broad range of flood mapping scenarios can be shown in specific locations.

Community engagement / map feedback

Community engagement and map-specific feedback can now dramatically improve future water decisions. PlanEngage helps overcome the challenge of collecting informed and reliable information from community consultations, by allowing specific project feedback or drop-pin based map feedback to be collected within the same online environment that the information is presented in. As a result, community responses are higher quality and have a higher degree of specificity, making them even more useful to the planning and design process.
