We contacted Control I.T. as we we were looking for a VOIP solution to be rolled out across our multi-site organisation. 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.

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.

Steve has helped my dental practice transfer from a slow out dated computer hardware system to a much faster and easier to use system. The software transfer from the old to new system was seamless which in turn minimised business downtime. Since installation the hardware has been well monitored and supported by Steve. The level of service has been fantastic so far!

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.

Success in business is often about finding the right people to support you – and in my case you have done just that for me.
From providing clear advice and equipping my office with the best computing equipment which has saved me countless hours in increased productivity to the patient and supportive way you installed it and set it up. Through the data backups and seamless remote monitoring which has detected and fixed issues before I was aware they had appeared, to the way you made achieving Cyber Essentials accreditation a simple and easy process and provides my clients with the confidence that their information is safe in my systems.
I am truly grateful for all your support and cannot recommend your services highly enough. Every business needs Control IT Solutions supporting them.
