Steve has helped us to put in place a suitable I.T Solution for a business that has grown and continues to grow rapidly. He is easy to contact at any time, knowledgable, problem solving and very helpful with his advice.
On behalf of A&E, I would like to say a big thank you for the transition to a VoIP system and Office 365 Cloud based applications which was made easy and I am sure it will benefit us at the new facility.

We are really happy with the communication and service provided by them - and even happier with the new system!! I would recommend Steve and the team to anyone who wants a trouble free, smooth and attentive service. Thanks from the team at Giraffe Cafe and Checkin Works.

The ongoing IT support provided has been first class and we have no hesitation in recommending Steve Snow and his company Control IT Solutions. Great customer service.

Doesn’t all this Cyber bullying etc get you worried. Being a Willwriter I have lots of clients sensitive information and wishes for the future, I am so grateful that I have Steve Snow in my camp, I have hourly back up of all my data and then a secondary back up just for piece of mind, it all goes on in the background and Steve’s on it if anything flags up, for less than a decent coffee a day it’s a no brainer! Couldn’t recommend anyone better!
Thank you very much for all help recently. From helping us with our own internal systems to setting up our clients with cloud computing software like Office 365, you have been a pleasure to work with. We would have absolutely no hesitations in recommending you to anyone in need of desktop support.

We were recommend Control IT Solutions and I can confidently say, we are absolutely thrilled to have them assist us with our IT. They are always on hand to help and incredibly patient. With my limited IT knowledge, I never feel a question is too silly to ask! They had us up and running with no issues and the remote support offered is brilliant. I would highly recommend Control IT Solutions to anyone looking for IT support
"Control IT recently helped us with our move of premises and we couldn't be happier with their work. Very friendly and efficient.
Control IT helped us upgrade our systems, email and accounting software, as well as setting us up on the cloud and linking all our calendars together.
Their expertise in all matters helped us transition into our new office and I thank them for all the effort they put in.
Control IT is truly a great company and I can, without doubt, recommend them to both customers and business associates safe in the knowledge that they will put everything they can into the work they have been tasked with.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for migrating my email accounts to Office 365. This was an arduous task I'd been putting off for some time. You showed great patience and technical expertise in getting the job done with minimal disrutption. For these reasons, I have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends, clients and contacts."
"We used Control IT to set up our new system/network recently and the company was great, very helpful and good at translating tech speak over to us with zero experience in I.T.
Would use again and highly recommend"
