About IPS

Our Team

Quality is born from great teamwork

The Mission of IPS is to develop and integrate advanced technologies to improve the efficiency and effectivity of commercial and government entities. We rely on engineering and intellect to create products that continually exceed customer expectations. We don’t engineer things we don’t love. We do this by staffing a team of amazing people who go nameless each day. Our engineers rock, and they make the guys below look awesome everyday; but they have work to do – so if you would like to talk to someone, pick from below so our engineers can do what they do best, engineer.
