State of Matter is a management consulting firm which specialises in digital strategy, business and IT alignment, and the provision of expertise to recover large programs of work that are heading towards (or have arrived in) troubled waters.

Superfluid is State of Matter's IT professional services team. Our primary focus is around helping midsize organisations leverage Microsoft’s applications for competitive advantage, and we work with a variety of related vendors and technologies to ensure our clients receive the right solution for their needs and budget.

Working closely with the State of Matter team, we share the same offices, sometimes the same clients, and always get together with them for bacon and eggs on our ‘Heart Attack Fridays’.

Leadership

The qualities we bring to our team are also those we bring to our clients’ businesses: the ability to listen, the courage to challenge accepted wisdom, an unswerving commitment to outcomes and, above all, the capacity to evolve, to move forward, to grow, to go from one state of matter to the next.

Alex Papli
Business Development Manager

Alex and his team are the engine room of our sales and marketing efforts, and are charged with developing our client relationships and being our customer's best advocates and internal champions. Alex's passion is helping companies drive business performance ahead of their competitors by leveraging technology to achieve a winning edge.

Ask Alex About: Inbound marketing, startups, racing quadcopters and new words his three year old son invents.

1. We believe that no two problems are the same. And because no two problems are the same it follows that no two solutions will be the same.

2. We won't re-invent the wheel. If we've built something similar before we'll suggest our clients use that IP rather than create something bespoke.

3. We don’t seek to embed ourselves with our clients. We’re happy to work with them, and to form long-term relationships, but our business model is very different from those of our competitors. We thrive based on delivering great client outcomes and through these know our business will continue to grow.

4. We won't quote our customers a solution that suits us best. Rather, our recommendations will be the same as those we give a friend.
 

5. We believe in taking the brief, identifying the issues, working out a plan, applying it and, after achieving the best possible result for our client, moving on.

6. We’re team players. We work with the best people. We bring them in as required. Like all great teams, our combined abilities are greater than the sum of the parts. And central to our belief in the power of the team is the recognition that the team isn’t just us. It includes our clients, and all other stakeholders. 

7. And because of our belief in the team, we make sure our team members are well supported in a workplace that’s simple, friendly and accommodating.
 

Finally, we're committed to the outcome. It's all about results, getting things done, on time and on budget.
