Our story

The software was designed exclusively for the Australian Solar Industry to replace the lengthy manual process of data entry straight into the Rec Registry website for the creation of STCs. The technology was the first of its kind and it allowed users a secure way of registering their installs and managing and storing the data in their Formbay.

Formbay Trading platform and app offers a completely paperless way of creating STCs through its use of the iPhone and Google Android platforms via the App, which was first launched in 2011
