Shah Alam, 15 October 2021 – Web and mobile application solutions developer ODESI ECOB Sdn Bhd is helping position Selangor at the top for ‘Intelligent State’ with the launch of ‘Selangor Intelligent Strata Property System’.
Embracing the era of digitisation, the event sees the implementation of “Selangor Intelligent Strata Property System” – ODESI’s end-to-end integrated solution which empowers the state government to manage strata systems better. The initiative involving more than 6,000 buildings in 12 municipal and city councils bridges the gap between the government, the stakeholders, as well as the residents.
“This means that ODESI empowers better strata management in the digitisation process between the Commissioner of Buildings (COB) in the Municipal and City Council right down to the Property Developers, Property Management Companies, Joint Management Bodies (JMB), Management Corporation (MC) and the Strata Property Owners,” said Loh Ken-Ji, Chief Executive Officer, ODESI ECOB Sdn Bhd.
The online system is designed for the COB to assist the related stakeholders in managing, monitoring and rating housing schemes. It also records Stratified Building Management Index using star rating management.
“ODESI eCOB System acts as a centralised system which stores all data, relating to the area of development, its JMB and MC. Its implementation will encourage self-service in our portal. Above all, it structurally and systematically maintains and updates all strata development areas.
“Further, the system allows the JMBs and MCs to perform searches of information thus empowering them to operate more efficiently. In addition, the councils will be able to send notices to developments through the portal which saves them a lot of time and administration,” Ken-Ji adds.
The event also marked the launch of ODESI Life App which is a one-stop mobile app and web solution that connects the COB, JMB, MC, and strata residents. This platform is ideal for strata developments like condominiums, serviced residences, and gated communities. As part of the Selangor Intelligent Strata Property System initiative, ODESI Life App is offered to all strata buildings management for free.
“ODESI Life App is packaged with a back-end web office for the respective Property Managements to post advertisements, property information and communicate with their communities. It also features owner and tenant management, facilities bookings, security functions, collection and online payments,” he elaborates, setting a target of more than a million ODESI Life App users by end 2022.
The ‘Selangor Intelligent Strata Property System’ launch was also attended by Puan Rodziah binti Ismail who Selangor State Executive Councillor for Housing, Urban Wellbeing and Entrepreneurs Development, Dato’ Dr TPr Juhari bin Ahmad Chief Executive of Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor (LPHS)
“Selangor is proud to be part of the strata management digitisation process and we definitely hope to be a shining example in the industry. Thus far, we have witnessed an improvement in the work processes for our COBs and the implementation of ODESI eCOB system has indeed saved local councils a lot of trouble and minimised the use of resources,” said Rodziah.
She added that the introduction of ODESI Life App will further position Selangor at the forefront in the utilisation of technology. “We are sure that the platform will go far in delivering communication between the residents and the JMBs or MCs, making life even more comfortable for all parties.”
Ken-Ji assured that ODESI is constantly exploring revolutionary solutions for the strata industry. This includes the Online Annual General Meeting (AGM) solution – ODESI eAGM – which is developed for digital meetings chaired by the JMB/MCs.
