The UIS CAMA (Computer Aided Mass Appraisal) is specifically suited for the South African market and was developed with compliance towards the MPRA in mind.

The integration of GIS in the UIS CAMA system provides thematic spatial layering for analysis of data allowing assessors to more effectively and accurately perform valuation tasks.

UIS CAMA’s mobile application uses a user-defined property set (including GIS and photos), which saves time and reduces errors. Because all of the CAMA functions and rules remain the same throughout the system regardless of application, field level staff can work and enter data as they do in the office.

The UIS CAMA system allows for an accurate mass valuation processes by using sales data from the deeds office to extrapolate the values of properties depending on the square meter areas of properties and complementing this with the adverse and positive features of properties captured in the field.

The UIS CAMA system allows for the interrogation of each individual property by merely clicking on a property on the map and thereby accessing the relevant data that was used to arrive at a property value. In this way, a comprehensive audit trail is available that shows exactly how the valuer has arrived at a property value.

The UIS CAMA system runs on a server application designed on a web-based platform which can be accessed from any location be it home or office via the internet.
