Our Story

Our story is one of an idea taking root, and blossoming into a business that benefits its employees and clients alike.

We’re proud to provide business communications solutions to local and national businesses. 
We consistently strive to uphold our core principles of integrity, partnership, and value.
 
Our goal is that through our business we can transform areas of our communities from social distress and suffering to a place of universal prosperity and human flourishing.
This goal is underpinned by the philosophy that all business transactions are conducted with mutual benefit at the forefront.
We aim to be counter-cultural in the way we operate, by stepping away from the race for profit and profit only.
 
We love what we do, and we’d love to work with you.
Please get in touch.

An Idea Is Planted

IPC Solutions began as an idea through its founder, Michael Knill.

A fully qualified Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE), Michael was contracting in large organisations and Government departments, building communications environments.
 
While Government and large organisations could resource expensive and feature-rich systems, small to medium businesses were stuck with poorly supported solutions that did not meet their requirements.
Michael realised an opportunity to leverage his own skills to benefit those businesses, and the idea of creating his own business was planted.
2008 - 2016
Taking Root
Michael regularly experimented with Open Source communications.

Excited by the possibilities, he began to craft his own communications solution. 
Slowly, in addition to his contracting work, Michael began to grow a client base with his new communications system. 

During this time, Michael developed his skills and improved the infrastructure and functionality of his solution, preparing for the leap of taking the business full-time. 
2017 - 2020
Breaking Through and Growing

In 2017, Michael completed his last government project and moved his vision to action.

The business that began in his home office soon expanded to serve more than 100 clients.

Michael brought on more staff as the company grew.
Soon three staff became four, then six. The client base continued to expand.
2021 - Present
Flourishing and Flowering
Now, we're poised to take the next step.
 
From 2021, IPC Solutions began to form strategic partnerships with Managed IT providers in the ACT, reaching a more diverse set of businesses.

Now with over 15 years of history, we are poised to expand even further. In line with our values, we want to benefit our partners, clients, and all that we come into contact with. 

At its core, IPC Solutions is about providing excellence in business communications.
With the launch of the Mobile Softphone, we continue to raise the bar of what businesses can expect out of their communications; in functionality and in reliability.
