We create. We craft.
We code.

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

What we do

We create digital solutions for businesses, provide consultancy services and offer application support.

We believe in the power of code to make your life easier and to improve your business. Working with the right tools for the job, we develop custom-made solutions that increase efficiency and profitability, and we make the process painless.

Better together

We build strategic partnerships with clients that require a dynamic technology partner to create, develop and support their business-critical applications. We're equally at home building from the ground upwards, supporting and improving an existing solution, or adapting one of our in house products to your needs.

No nonsense know how

As techies, 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. 

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

Telematics

We have a proven track record in sophisticated software development, consultancy and application support. Working with forward-thinking brands such as the RAC, Globavista and Risk Technology, we spearhead industry trends through creativity and innovation. Our systems help consume data in the most cost effective way, and we use our Big Data capability to ensure our clients get the best value from the information they gather.

Find out about our telematics partnership with RAC Advance.

Web application development

A web application can allow convenient in-the-browser access to your business solutions via a variety of devices and platforms. We have a deep expertise in developing and supporting effective web-based systems, from customer portals, to eCommerce platforms, to membership systems. We build from the ground up and also specialise in enterprise CMS based solutions.

Enterprise cloud applications

We specialise in enterprise application development and consultancy using cloud technology. Moving your product or platform to the cloud can provide increased scalability, improved performance and major cost efficiencies, and with our experience in large-scale cloud migration projects, we'll support you every step of the way.

Mobile app development

Mobilising your workforce through an app can transform your business, improving efficiency and reducing risk. We create smart apps for business, from tools that help ensure your workforce remains efficient yet compliant, to rich customer engagement and insight applications. Our dedicated team of developers are well versed in the leading mobile technologies to cater for your individual requirements. We also develop our own products for mobile, and can successfully target both smartphone and tablet alike.

Consultancy

We offer specialist consultancy services and advice to help you make informed decisions surrounding your technologies. We can advise on technical architecture, technology stack, risks and other important considerations. If you're acquiring a new piece of software, we can help you understand what you're letting yourself in for. Or, if you need to scope out the potential for some ground-up development work, we can assist with the R&D and prototyping.
