Building smarter

Xero is on the move. Or, at least its Auckland offices are. But the company won’t be leaving the City of Sails – in fact, it’ll be moving into a new building that’s not only bigger, but might just be one of the most innovative offices in Aotearoa. Oh, and it’ll also host its own co-working space.

Robots. Ho-hum, right?
