After spending 3 years on the Executive Committee of the largest Strata Plan in Sydney, Nuvit, founder and CEO of Oenju, realised that the complexity and conflicting priorities of the strata world required a unique solution. This solution would prove disruptive to the industry but enhance the way strata management was managed.
In 2000, CyberCommunity was created as a solution to address exactly this. Meriton Group, Australia’s largest and most successful residential developer, quickly understood that the platform was a game-changer and on-boarded all of their sites on CyberCommunity (Strataspot's original name).
Strata Managers, Building Managers, Executive Committees, Owners and Tenants began seeing the enormous benefit of the platform. Strataspot started taking feedback and began making user interface enhancements for better usability.
Many others followed and contributed with their feedback, which was embedded in the developmental process of building a robust platform. Strataspot transformed into a fully functional CMS system where users could start to customise their respective system.
Strataspot was now mobile. Users were able to access all their information on their phones, and were not limited to a desktop system. Further, improvements were made during this time, such as the introduction of incident reports, parcel notification systems, and most notably, the Asset Register system which allowed building managers to access costings, depreciations/appreciations, warranties, user manuals, etc. of all their buildings' assets.
Strataspot went through marketing exercises, surveyed users about the product, engaged designers, and more UI/UX enhancements were made.
Meetings and surveys continued. More enhancements were made. New and more robust coding languages became available and Strataspot had to keep up with the ever-evolving and fast-paced tech world. In 2014 Strataspot was completely rebuilt from the ground up to ensure the system was robust and up-to-date.
Today, Strataspot continues to make the lives of people in real estate better by giving them a cloud-based platform that is easy to use and effectively efficient. We are excited to see what lays ahead in the future and look to explore new ways that better the lives of communities.
