Get paid faster:
SMATA's invoice processing system offers a streamlined approval process from the Strata Managers to Building Committees. Additionally, the customised platform manages works with transparency, having information such as calendar notifications, concise briefs, photos, videos, registered strata plans, reports and a past history available in one central location. Due to this, the usual bottlenecks associated with approvals and communication are minimised.
