Really excited today to introduce our new Strata Pages feature!
This is our first big initiative this year, and is the culmination of lots of hard work by the Housenet team over summer holidays. While everyone else was lazing by the beach and drinking beer, we went hardcore geek and embraced all the thrills and glamour that web development has to offer. Which is to say, we pulled long hours, gorged on junk food, and the closest we got to a tan was the glow from the office lights….OK, so what’s Strata Pages all about? Check this video out:
If you’ve ever lived in an apartment complex, block of units, villa or townhouse you’ll know that strata living is different from residing in a house. From crazy neighbours and by laws, to sinking funds and building defects, owning a strata title property presents some unique challenges. But the common issues that confront most strata communities are:
- Ready access to strata scheme information
- Rumours and disputes
- Managing events and maintenance
- Dialogue and relationships between lot owners
In fact our research found that communication and information management in strata schemes, especially self-managed, is often diabolical. There is no industry standard; some are using old clunky share software, others group emails – it’s a complete mishmash. So, we developed Strata Pages to solve this problem.
Now, owners and managers of strata buildings can create a micro social network for individual strata communities in minutes. Yes, like a mini-Facebook adapted just for body corporates!
Strata Pages provides a central PRIVATE online place for…
- scheme updates
- minutes, budgets, plans
It even has a polling feature, which we think will be especially useful in the lead up to NSW strata reforms!
Who’s it for? We’ve made it essentially FREE (unless you create multiple pages) , and it’s for both professional strata managers and self-managed owners corporations. It’s what’s called ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS), in that we host it on our secure servers so you don’t need to spend money installing it at your end.
Thanks, I hope you find Strata Pages useful and please do leave comments – we’d love your feedback on this feature.
