Long-standing customer relationships since 1980 prove our reliability - that's WE!


Controlware GmbH was founded in 1980 by Helmut Wörner in a garage in Götzenhain. This laid the foundation for successful development with a focus on system integration. Helmut Wörner has always paid special attention to flexibility, inventiveness and, above all, customer orientation. The principle of Robert Bosch has always been a guideline for him: "Better lose money than trust" (Robert Bosch 1861 - 1942).

This motto still contributes to Controlware's sustainable and long-term business relationships with customers and partners today.

Controlware GmbH is one of the market and quality leaders among IT service providers and managed service providers in Germany. The company is part of the Controlware Group with a total of around 950 employees and a turnover of around 380 million euros, which also includes ExperTeach GmbH, Networkers AG and productware GmbH.

As a digitalisation partner for medium-sized and large companies as well as public authorities and institutions, Controlware develops, implements and operates agile and resilient IT solutions in the areas of network solutions, information security, data centre & cloud, collaboration, IT management and managed services - and supports our customers in setting the course for economic, future-proof and sustainable IT operations. We support our customers in all project phases: from consulting and planning to implementation and maintenance.


As an MSP with our own ISO 27001-certified Customer Service Centre, our offering ranges from operational support to complete managed services for cloud, data centre, enterprise and campus environments. We also offer comprehensive cyber defence services. In addition to our own comprehensive sales and service network with 16 locations in DACH, which are certified according to ISO 9001, we maintain international partnerships and are thus able to handle demanding global projects. Since our founding in 1980, we have worked closely with leading national and international manufacturers as well as innovative newcomers and are certified to the highest level of qualification with most of these partners. We pay special attention to the promotion of young talent:

For many years, we have been cooperating with renowned German universities and consistently supervise around 50 trainees and students.


Values, employees, customers and partners

Our values

All of Controlware's business activities are characterised by respect and appreciation for our customers, colleagues and business partners. We support our customers in successfully realising their goals - as an IT partner, we are on hand to advise from the very first hour, if desired. Our IT solutions are pragmatic, effective and customised, always keeping an eye on future developments. Long-term economic sustainability shapes our daily internal work and also plays a major role in the planning and implementation of our customer projects. Our long-term, trusting customer and supplier relationships form the basis for our business success - values such as honesty, trust and the ability to take criticism are of great importance to us.

Our employees (m/f/d)

The foundation of our entrepreneurial success is our dedicated, excellently trained employees. The highly qualified Controlware employees and certified technical experts are available to the customers in word and deed in all phases of the projects - and in close cooperation find a solution for every challenge. As an attractive employer, we permanently invest in the qualified training and further education of our employees and pay attention to equal opportunities. For years, Controlware has been working closely with six German universities in the promotion of young IT academics within the framework of dual courses of study. In addition, we train commercial and technical employees at all locations, who we take on as employees in over 90 percent of cases after completing their training. We promote the health of our employees with special sports programmes - these include massages, yoga courses and cost-sharing for fitness studios.
Many of our employees have been with the company for more than 20 years. The pleasant working atmosphere is also reflected in the minimal staff turnover.
