Myles Lyndon Pope & Associates (MLPA) Pty Ltd was founded in 1993 in Melbourne Australia with a goal to provide the highest standards of IT products, services and advice to small to mid size businesses and organisations.
1990s. MLPA grew from a one man business and started employing more staff and running a conventional office in the mid 1990’s. Like many small and succesful companies MLPA was overwhelmed with enquiries and word of mouth referrals and faced the common small business problem where its very success became a challenge to its standards of service. To answer the question of how to grow and leverage its business whilst retaining its original competitive advantage – personalised professional service. MLPA turned to technology rather than to personnel alone. We implemented our Virtual Office and deployed IT infrastructure to leverage and grow.
2000’s. MLPA continued to deliberately control its growth rate and improve service quality and to do so by choosing to service only a select group of private clients. In this way, MLPA was, and remains, able to deliver outstanding and personalised service to each of those clients. MLPA’s focused its business and moved from general IT towards specialisation in IT back room infrastructure and remote IT support.
2010’s – today. Myles Lyndon Pope & Associates (MLPA) Pty Ltd has a national Australia wide focus backed by “Local” support mindset and continues to follow and improve upon its original approach of smart, reliable and high quality professional IT products and services, delivered to special clients via personalised partnerships. MLPA currently does not advertise our Company and we occasionally and selectively take on new clients and new projects provided that doing so will not compromise our ability to service our valued existing client base. MLPA is growing steadily but still chooses for now to remain a relatively small and quality focussed business backed primarily by it’s principal consultant, Myles Pope and a small but fabulous and dedicated team of very important administrative staff and IT consultants, programmers, assemblers, cablers, subcontractors and associates, who in combination make the delivery of our products and services such a success.
