Energy efficient direct replacement for MR16 halogen downlights (SMART 100)

The founding technical directors came together in 2006 as individual contractors to contribute specific intellectual property to some unique product development.

About the same time, Xero entered Australia and declared that they wouldn’t be offering a payroll solution with their product. That was the epiphany moment. Stuart had lunch with John (his former boss at AusAID), and Paycycle was born.
