Sapoa Online and Sandton Central to provide access to property content from a wide range of owners

Sapoa Online (www.sapoaonline.co.za) is to link to Sandton Central via its website (www.sandtoncentral.co.za) in order to create an integrated property tool that will provide site users, tenants and investors with property content from a wide range of property owners.

Sapoa Online is the South African Property Owners Association’s web-based communications tool and has been at the forefront in providing interested parties with quality and up-to-date information on the commercial property industry. Those looking for business premises, property service providers, research and information on a particular area or the latest commercial property news from around the country have an effective and accurate source of information.

This partnership allows Sandton Central to join forces with a credible and industry-endorsed property information partner. This assists in the creation of a more open property information resource, giving Sandton Central website users easy access to property information and news specific to the improvement district. It will also give property owners in the improvement district easy access to SA's leading online property marketing resource and allow Sandton Central to actively market area-specific property and business opportunities.
Sandton Central is the name given to the two legislated City Improvement District (CID) in Sandton, namely the Sandton City and Convention Centre Improvement District (SCMD) and the Sandton Business Improvement District (SBID). Established by the property owners within the boundaries of Sandton Drive, Grayston Drive and Rivonia Road, Sandton Central manages the public space within which the major properties in the Sandton area are situated.
The inclusion of a Sandton Central website is part of the strategy adopted by Sandton Central to brand and market the improvement district, positioning it as an ‘enterprising global hub’ and a node key to the success of the greater Johannesburg area.

The Sandton Central website is based on the eZone product developed by Kagiso Urban Management, the company employed to manage Sandton Central, as a CID communications and information management solution. When fully developed the eZone product offers:

  • efficient management of the billing and payment of improvement district levies and of assessment rates and services;
  • web-based e-mail and SMS communications between the precinct manager and stakeholders in the precinct;
  • provision of useful information for effective improvement district management, businesses and consumers, and
  • marketing of the precinct and advertising opportunities for businesses in the precinct.

The eZone venture is a partnership between property owners, local government and tenants in managed urban precincts. Its primary aim is to improve the physical environment and municipal services, to retain and increase property values, and to generally improve conditions for business in urban precincts through improved communications and information access. Thus the collaboration of Sapoa Online with Sandton Central’s eZone product allows this concept to reach its full potential. 

For Sapoa Online, this joint collaboration has allowed this comprehensive property site to become a part of the urban renewal process, giving Sapoa Online properties greater exposure as well access to a smaller and non-traditional pool of property owners. It assists in the vital process of information and data standardisation across different initiatives and through the collaboration with Sandton Central and Kagiso Urban Management, gives the Sapoa Online service added credibility.

The relationship between these two bodies is sure to create a value-add for members of Sandton Central and Sapoa Online, ensuring that property owners, tenants and investors always receive accurate and updated property information and taking the improvement district to new heights of management and marketing.
