The HALNYX Delphi Platform

4CF offers access to an advanced online consulting and Delphi studies platform to consultants and research project managers who need a swift transformation of knowledge into thoroughly reviewed recommendations.
Unlike other expert consultation methods, the HalnyX, our fourth generation Delphi platform, enables instant consensus building and the identification and evaluation of points of dispute in complex issues.
Cooperation with 4CF can additionally mean the complete outsourcing of a platform-based project. This includes generating reports and a 360 ° handling of the research project.

Typical applications of the HalnyX Platform:

  • The efficient development of a consensus among experts on complex and often controversial issues, such as asset allocation or the assessment of hypothetical events’ impact on an organization’s activities,
  • Reviewing law drafts or other normative documents and assessing the potential impact of their implementation,
  • Consultations with individual and institutional stakeholders in spatial or infrastructural planning,
  • Forecasts of the impact of technology on strategic position,
  • Social participation – conducting consultations with local stakeholders,
  • Strategic foresight,
  • Evaluation

Unlike commonly used qualitative knowledge management and social research tools (such as focus groups, workshops, forums, or surveys), HalnyX simultaneously gives research teams the advantage of using collective intelligence and a solid discussion structure, which ensures that no essential information is omitted. 

The key advantages of our method:

The HalnyX platform is an advanced Smart Delphi tool which includes a number of enhancements.
The advantages of HalnyX include:

  • Instant feedback for users. Information about other users’ ratings is available in real time (real-time Delphi).
  • The study may be carried out within 24 hours.
  • Transparent process structure with emphasis on leading experts towards a consensus and facilitating the analysis and synthesis of the generated knowledge
  • A discussion enriched by technological innovations such as tools which are an aid in the use of maps,  diagrams and other visual data.
  • Up to three levels of comment with definable  prefixes which translate to an organised discussion  and predefined comment assessment methods.  
  • An experienced team of analysts who provide support during the study, reliable moderation and compile conclusions.
  • Applicability to both open and closed studies (for invited participants),
  • Focusing expert attention on specific tasks and generating new knowledge – the system reduces information noise and redundancy which typically accompany
  • The possibility to add new questions to an ongoing study.
  • The ability to create “self-generating” studies (in which participants are authors and are also subsequently evaluated), which helps to answer questions of the “what is the problem?” category
  • Increased motivation for participants owing to optional gamification elements.
