It was established in 1996 and is based in Dublin City Centre. FUSIO's clients in the public sector include the National Development Plan, the Irish Comptroller and Auditor General, the Irish Department of Finance, the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, the Irish Government, and its Oireachtas (Parliament).
FUSIO helped the Irish Government to launch its eCabinet initiative in 2004, by optimising information presentation.
In September 2009, on the day of the launch of the Dublin Bikes Bicycle sharing system, FUSIO released a free iPhone application which provided users with realtime updates on the number of bikes and spaces at each of the stations. The data feed for this application came directly from the Bike Stations. Following this launch, the scheme's operators, JCDecaux, demanded that Fusio remove the application from the Apple Inc. App Store. There followed a threat from JCDecaux to take legal action against FUSIO if they did not comply with their request. FUSIO's subsequent removal of the application received significant media coverage in the Irish Times., Irish Examiner. and on Today FM and numerous blogs and Twitter accounts.
FUSIO have been creating applications for Android and IOS for many companies in Ireland and around the world. Some of these include: Enterntianment.ie - Entertainment app  Entertainment.ie- Cinema Guide  The Irish Times- Ticket app  The Irish Times- News app  Fitzwilliam - Hotel app  See it!
