What defines us?
Integrity, transparency & care
Since day one, we’ve been uber passionate about being a clear-cut no-bullshit company. We don’t over-complicate things, we bill reasonably and explain what you’re paying for, and we tell it how it is.
If there’s an issue, you can guarantee we’ll be on top of it. If we make a mistake, we’ll be up-front and tell it how it is. If we’re able to spend an extra few minutes here or there to save you money in the long run, we’ll take the time.
We care about our customers. You’re our number one priority day-to-day – after all, you’re the ones paying us.
Knowledgeable & personal technicians
It’s never nice when you have a mission-critical system go down or a website fall offline right when you need it, to then file a support ticket and be run in circles by the person who’s supposed to be helping you.
We sure hate it when that happens to us. That’s why we only hire staff who fit our ethos and take care of our customers. They’re knowledgeable, well trained and take a pragmatic approach to their work, but above all they’re genuinely exceptional people.
Our staff love it when our customers are happy, and that makes us happy. In return, we offer our staff highly flexible conditions and great perks.
Where'd it all begin?
Ink Systems is the result of years of passion, dedication and late nights by its founder and his dedicated team. Luke Thompson started his entrepreneurial journey in 2010 – from freelance designing websites, he had a stint at Macquarie University before starting work in the web hosting industry. From there, he made the move across to self-employment and the ball started rolling.
Initially trading as a boutique Drupal website design firm “Ink Websites”, the company quickly expanded. As it grew, the company adopted many additional services. By 2014, the company had to its name as many IT consulting clients as it did web design clients.
Today, it boasts clients such as Red Rooster and Daimler Mercedes-Benz, and continues to grow month-on-month. Ink Systems has never had any investment, and has been reliant solely on its own business planning.
Why the name? Why ink?
Ink has defined the human population for centuries – it has long been an expression of art, emotion, stories and education. It first appeared around 2500 BC in Egyptian and Chinese civilisations, and has since written some of the world’s most defining and powerful documents.
With the ever-rising use of computers, ink is slowly becoming less prevalent. In 2009, a young man formed a company – Ink Websites. It was an ode to the power and prestige of ink, on scrolls, in pens, in printers and above all else, as a form of art.
