The Business Issue
The Strata Building Bond and Inspections Scheme (SBBIS) is a regulatory initiative introduced in New South Wales (NSW), Australia that provides protection for owners of new multi-story residential buildings.
The SBBIS was implemented to help protect consumers and restore confidence in the quality of multi-story residential buildings. However, manual and paper-based processes involved in managing building bonds posed challenges. Applicants needed to fill out numerous paper forms and rely on manual monitoring of timelines and due dates – making the process labor-intensive, complex, and inefficient.
To address these challenges, the NSW Government modernized the SBBIS by transforming with digital solutions. They developed the Strata Hub, an online platform, and the SBBIS Inspect app – both powered by the Pega Platform™.
The Strata Hub streamlined data inputs and improved cybersecurity. Even better, it now pre-fills known data when constituents submit an application and supports compliance with built-in tracking. The SBBIS Inspect app enables building inspectors to capture necessary data and evidence on-site, eliminating the need for manual filing of reports.
