About The MaxSoft Group
MaxSoft was founded in 1992 on the Gold Coast in Queensland by Michael Borin. Michael made it his mission to automate every conceivable task within a Strata Managers office and eliminate wherever possible the requirement for manual tasks, excel spreadsheets and other non-integrated third-party software. The group has now grown to be the market leader in strata management software, with expansion into every state in Australia. The group is owned and operated by the Borin family and is now run as a second generation family business.
In 2002, the company launched StrataPay as a separate company holding an Australian Financial Services Licence. StrataPay revolutionised the management of issuing and collecting levies and other fees for Strata Managers and has continued to innovate with the widest range of payment channels available industry-wide.
In addition to this, StrataMax recognised that the strata sector ideally needed bank accounts with special features that regular accounts could not offer. BOQ StrataCash Management accounts were subsequently developed by BOQ in conjunction with StrataCash Management to meet the specific requirements of lot owners and strata managers alike. StrataCash Management which is also under the MaxSoft Group was launched in 2008 and holds a separate Australian Financial Services Licence.
To complete its financial service offerings, StrataLoans was introduced in 2016 which provides finance to owners corporations and bodies corporate needing to fund renovation, rectification and other capital works. StrataLoans are now active in almost every state and territory across the country.
