About Us

Our Approach

OpinionWise has a simple objective : Develop digital products which harness narratives and digital engagement for social good.

Our Story

OpinionWise Ltd is a UK company which specialises in technology for public engagement.  We run a number of cloud services such as Optioneer - an online decision support tool.

We started looking at skills and competency frameworks some time ago and realised that there must be a better way to understand current state than by holding in-person workshops.  The skills audit was born in 2016 and is based on an old (but not forgotten) IBM methodology.

Meet the Team

We work hard so you don't have to.  We are a small, UK based team who offer friendly, professional services.
