We create. We craft.
We code.

We're Control F1, and we develop meaningful digital products and creative software solutions that make a genuine different to your business.

What we do

Making the world that little bit better one line of code at a time.

We believe in the power of code to make your life easier and to help your business run more smoothly. We build software that makes a difference, and we make the process painless.

No nonsense know how

We’re technology experts. We devote time to Research and Development and love to push the boundaries. But we’ll never hide behind jargon, or chase novelty for novelty’s sake. 

The sky's the limit!

When people ask: “what can you do?” we ask: “what do you need?” We love a good challenge. So if you’ve got a process that needs improving, an idea that needs realising, or a problem that needs solving, hit us with it! 

Getting to know you

We’re truly passionate about code. It's part of the fabric of our people, and it's what we like to spend our time doing. But we also understand that technology is only useful when it's answering a genuine need. That's why we're all about getting to know you and your business.

What we do

Expert
consulting

It doesn't matter how much you know about tech. Tell us your idea, and we'll work with you to understand your needs, define a solution and deliver it.

If you're acquiring a new piece of software, we can also help you understand what you're letting yourself in for – we’ll take a look at the architecture and code and do the due diligence – and then we'll report back on the quality, highlighting the risks and proposing any optimisations and improvements.

Bespoke
development

Because sometimes off-the-shelf isn't good enough, and a one-size-fits-all approach isn't right.

We regularly invest our time into Research and Development and enjoy building from the ground upwards. Mobile apps, business software, content management systems, digital products and services – we believe they can all work better for you and your business when they are bespoke.

Website design and development

The successful businesses of today recognise that a website is more than just an online publication. If you want to engage, you need to interact. We'll build you a website that can evolve with your business. We'll show you how you can increase your brand awareness across multiple devices and ensure your website supports the apps that keep your visitors coming back.

Cloud migration

Moving your product or platform to the cloud can provide increased scalability, improved performance and major cost efficiencies. It can be a challenging process, but we are experienced in large-scale cloud migration projects, and we'll support you every step of the way.

Support and testing

You want to know that your software will stand up in real world conditions, so we'll put it through its paces with a range of testing services. We'll load test to ensure it can cope under pressure, and security test to make sure you're not vulnerable. We'll also provide on-going monitoring and support.

Digital strategy

To be successful online you need a focused but comprehensive digital strategy that's tailored to achieve both your objectives and the objectives of your target users. We can identify key opportunities that can help you maximise the potential of your brand online and get you the results you want.

We apply our comprehensive knowledge of the latest technology, SEO techniques, user behaviour and design trends to devise you an accountable digital strategy that's centred on generating new website traffic whilst maintaining engagement.

Who we work with

We enjoy working with start-ups, SMEs and big players alike. Here are some of our clients:

Our technology

Mobile app development

With smartphone usage still on the up, we realise the need to bring quality mobile applications to businesses and consumers alike. Our dedicated team of developers are well versed in a variety of mobile technologies to cater for all requirements, and we currently work with both native and cross-platform development tools.

Telematics

Our team has many years of experience within the telematics industry. We even have our own piece of GPS tracking technology; Track360.

Track360 supports multiple devices for comprehensive asset tracking. Fleet managers, for example, can easily use the technology to track and process data for vehicles across a number of different manufacturers' devices.

CMS

We specialise in developing content management systems in Kentico (we're a gold partner) and Drupal, as well as other popular frameworks such as Umbraco and WordPress.

From enterprise websites to complex bespoke builds, we'll integrate our solutions with any existing systems you have in place too.

Microsoft .NET, Java & SQL Server

We have a deep expertise in Microsoft's .Net Framework, which – coupled with Microsoft SQL Server – offers a versatile environment for database-driven application development.
 
But most importantly, we use the right tools for the right job; from .NET to Java, SQL server to MongoDB and all things in between!

Our people

We are a team of digital problem-solvers who love a technical challenge.
