Focus on stakeholder
relationship management.
Let Borealis manage your data.

The Stakeholder Engagement Management module centralizes all stakeholder data
and keeps it right at your fingertips to simplify day-to-day tasks.
Always know who your stakeholders are and where they stand
  • Create a central registry of all individuals, organizations and households that are stakeholders in your project.
  • Unify all your stakeholder information under one platform by importing their information from your other databases quickly and easily.
  • Map them along with their affiliations to better understand their influence and concerns.
  • Use the handy reporting features to give management a real-time picture of the ever-evolving stakeholder relationship landscape.
Build stakeholder engagement plans on reliable data
  • Get real-time view of your progress on stakeholder engagement activities as the project unfolds, and quickly adjust course as needed.
  • Build separate engagement plans for key individuals and stakeholder groups.
  • Link your plans to project assets and objectives.
  • Plan upcoming stakeholder management tasks, delegate team members and send automatic reminders to staff to avoid oversights.
  • Monitor workloads and track team progress to quickly adjust course if needed.

Record and track all engagements and communications

  • Easily record all interactions with stakeholders, whether in person, by phone/SMS, in emails or even on social media. Keep your notes on your discussions in one place for ease of access.
  • Link them to the appropriate stakeholder engagement management plan for a lasting institutional memory.
  • Access these records at any time to ensure timely and appropriate follow-up.
A single, integrated platform ensures your whole stakeholder management team is on the same page, while customizable dashboards give individual team members access to data critical to them.

The network of interacting stakeholders in a large project can quickly become overwhelming. Your teams must be able to work successfully with everyone who has an interest in your project: government agencies, regulatory bodies, NGOs, local businesses, labor unions, the community, the media, Indigenous leaders, activist organizations, special interest groups, and internal stakeholders, to name just a few.

Analyzing the stakeholder landscape is only the beginning of forging successful stakeholder relationships. Your teams will need to identify and monitor their interests and opinions about various aspects of your project, track communications, plan future communications, and manage all this in an environment of rapid change.

What is stakeholder engagement?

Whether developing a new pipeline, constructing a highway or building a new landfill site, your project will impact many people and organizations. From local residents to Indigenous & environmental groups to politicians at every level of government, each stakeholder has concerns and input to be heard and addressed. Engaging with these groups, called stakeholder engagement, is a long-term, multi-faceted process which can be difficult to manage and keep track of, as the participants, circumstances and issues are fluid and ever-changing.
