Our Story

about-imgKPInterface was founded in 2006 by Matthew Kirby and Brian Pickell, both already accomplished veterans of the IT industry. Their idea was simple: Interface business with technology and high-quality service with clients. Hence was born the name: KPInterface (Kirby – Pickell Interface). Matt and Brian chose a strategy of hiring the best possible personnel they could afford, even if it meant delaying their own personal rewards and the company enjoyed great growth and success in its first few years. Unfortunately, in 2010, KPInterface was dealt a painful blow with the passing of Matthew Kirby. Matt’s contributions to the founding and early success of the company is what KPInterface continues to be built upon. His work ethic, his leadership, his partnership, and his friendship will never be forgotten, but carried forward in the spirit of KPInterface far into the future.

Our Value Proposition

KPInterface helps clients utilize technology in a unique way to make their business more productive and profitable. We utilize a proprietary system of services and tools to identify the specific business challenges caused by technology, develop a strategic plan and roadmap, and implement solutions and best practices to solve those challenges.

While many IT providers provide the basics - support, "managed services," and project implementation, KPInterface engages our clients on a deeper, more business-centric level. We start with a robust Business/IT assessment and review, provide a specific strategic plan, implement polices and procedures, and enhance the technology to better align it with the business goals. This leads to reduced downtime, reduced risk of data loss, improved productivity and a healthier bottom line. We have been able to take business technology from just a necessary aspect of the business to a critical component of business success.
