Simplexity was founded in 2003 by Paul Burns to provide niche engineering consultancy services to the worldwide high-tech industry

Since the company’s inception we have been helping organisations solve their problems and create value for their businesses. Simplexity is based in Adelaide South Australia, but we have never rested in the pursuit of excellence and experience and have relocated around the globe to successfully deliver projects in Australia, Europe, Asia and the USA. This has been a conscious strategy to help ensure that we expand our expertise and remain at the cutting edge of technology and problem solving for the benefit of our clients. We call ourselves niche, but our expertise in the types of services we can deliver and the range of industries we can support, may surprise you. Since 2003 we have been trusted by many industry leading companies, government enterprises, start-ups, training companies and universities.
Although we may have started as niche, our depth of experience today means that we support a range of industry sectors and provide not just engineering services, but also assist with product marketing, innovation and strategy, business and tender proposals. We believe that niche consulting teams produce the best results for their clients by only delivering the required expertise quickly and efficiently. By engaging us on your project, you can be confident of only being delivered with the right expert to solve your problem. Our services can be delivered flexibly to meet your needs, we can work remotely or be embedded as part of your team. We consider all project sizes from the large to the very small.


Prismtech is a global supplier of leading edge technology software products to customers in Defence and civilian industry including large European based multi-nationals such as Thales. When we were seeking a highly respected professional engineer with an international profile to provide support to the company's customers in the EMEA region, we engaged Paul who had relocated from Australia to France to be closer to European industry. Between 2008-2009 Paul was based in Paris and successfully provided the company with many services including:
• Assisting the development, delivery and negotiation of collaborative industry and EU funded project proposals and submissions
• Software tools training for engineers at Thales in Colombes Paris
• Preparation and delivery of technical product presentations to global audiences via webcast
• Preparation and delivery of a technical paper to a European Conference
• Customer interfacing and problem resolution
• Product roadmap development and management of the Software Defined Radio modelling tool Spectra CX
At all times, Paul provided expert, timely, innovative and customer focused services. He built up a significant rapport and trust with the company's senior management and worked closely with the CEO. The trust level was such that the company continued to use his services after Paul moved back to Australia. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Paul to organisations requiring a high level of technical and business acumen.
