He adds: “There is an increasing need for decision makers within the housing and property related sectors to be equipped with the best market intelligence to remain competitive. SIA Limited’s new generation of data-enriched and GIS-enabled products will ensure our clients can view detailed property and land information through the most effective interface.”

SIA director Nasser Elaheebocus says: ‘The partnership will ensure that clients benefit from increased investment and that our products will remain at the very forefront of innovation.’
