Our story starts in 2007, where Simpletech had its beginnings when Dean Joffe incorporated his lifelong passion for the world of audio into a business. Since those early days Simpletech has now developed into a major industry player with substantial expertise in Audio-Visual, Networking, Security and Automation Integration. As a result of his team’s dedication and commitment the company has now become an acknowledged and authoritative player in the industry with many successful projects completed both the commercially and domestically.
The professional qualifications of the owners and management are clearly evident in their design and installation ability which ensures an elegant engineering solution to each installation with significant and knowledgeable back-up and after sales care.
With a large theoretical knowledge base the company is now dynamically able to incorporate and adapt all new technologies as they arrive within this sector of the digital world. As professionals their communicative abilities ensure that the customer, no matter how technical, is able to understand the requirements and capabilities of the systems they propose through intelligent briefing and careful demonstration in their well equipped showroom.
Simpletech is prepared at all times to take briefings from individual owners or via their building professionals: architects, engineers and quantity surveyors. In all cases and through extensive product knowledge and intelligent briefing Simpletech will design, supply and install a unique system tailored both for the customers requirements and budget.

Operations & Logistics Team
There is a lot of behind the scenes work that happens off site to make our installation successful. We have a team of individuals in the office dedicated to coordinating and managing our technical teams, liaising with the professional teams and other sub-contractors on site and generally ensuring constant communication between all involved parties.
Accounts & Admin Team
If you’ve seen one of our full turn-key proposals, you’ll know that they are incredibly detailed and include hundreds of line items of products. Our accounts, procurement and administration managers in the office stay on top of the never-ending paperwork and administration. An organised office equals an organised installation!
Commissioning a fully automated home isn’t as simple as throwing in a few pieces of equipment and plugging them in. Countless hours of design, coordination, specification and programming go into ensuring the end solution is simple and meets the brief. Our engineering and technical team are tasked with holding the fort in this regard.
