Khaos Control Solutions Ltd (formerly Keystone Software Development Limited) is based in the heart of Lincolnshire and has been established for nearly twenty years. We focus on creating, implementing and supporting business management solutions for businesses across the globe.
Khaos Control Solutions was created by Mike Cockfield in 2000. He had a single vision: to deliver powerful, high quality, feature rich solutions that enabled businesses to unlock their full potential.
Over time the team expanded, as did the offices. The vision however, remained the same and is at the heart of our company’s values.
In 2016, Mike created a cloud-based ERP solution designed for helping SMEs manage their day-to-day processes – Khaos Control Cloud.
As we continue to grow, we look forward to helping businesses across the world unlock their full potential.
Mike founded the company in 2000 with a vision of a software product that would surpass all rivals for quality and value. Having assembled a valued team of fellow visionaries, Mike is now able to focus on the future progression of the Khaos family of products. He is excited about what the future holds for the Khaos brand and the new opportunities it will bring to our customers. Mike, the father of four children, is a keen walker and occasionally likes to unwind with a video game or two! As leader of the business, Mike is keen to ensure employees reach their potential and are happy in their work. He is a keen advocate for a customer focused style of service delivery, making sure our values drive a positive customer experience.
Dan is an experienced manager, systems analyst, and software developer, having spent a number of years authoring industrial control systems and designing tailored business applications before joining the Khaos Control family in 2008. Since that time, Dan has held leading roles in our Development and Implementation teams, and in doing so has gained an in-depth knowledge of Khaos Control and the myriad benefits it brings to our entire customer base. As part of our Senior Management Team, Dan intends to ensure our further success, and that of all our customers, whilst maintaining our core values of quality and professionalism. As an avid technophile, Dan spends his free time researching the latest gadgets – which often involves taking them apart.
Ben has been a loyal member of the Khaos Control family since 2001, starting out as Mike’s first Application Developer and helping to build the business in the early days. By late 2005 Ben had progressed to Support Team Manager, later joining the senior management team. Ben steered the Support team for nearly nine years, fostering many employee success stories who started their time at Khaos within Ben’s team. Recently Ben has moved into a more technically focused role as the Technical Services Manager. Being at the heart of Khaos Control Solutions in this way has given Ben an intimate knowledge of the system and he continues to contribute to all aspects of Khaos Control from behind the scenes. Ben is a film buff who enjoys spending his spare time with his family and tinkering with his Raspberry Pi and other new technologies.
Dean started his career with The Woodland Trust working his way up from Support Technician to Analyst programmer. He then moved on to MRM promotional services, part of the Taylor Nelson group, developing software to support the fulfilment of promotions for big brand companies. Dean has enjoyed many roles in the IT Industry as well as other areas of business and after spending some time at TD Waterhouse in a high-pressure customer services environment, discovered that he enjoyed the challenge and rewards offered by such roles. Working at Khaos Control Solutions since March 2007, Dean has remained focused on first line support and progressed from Support Technician to his current role as Customer Experience Manager, and is currently responsible for various aspects of the business including; installation of new instances of Khaos Control, releasing new versions to the customer base, and ensuring that our customers experience a consistently high level of performance, both from Khaos Control and our renowned Support Team.
If you want to accelerate your career to the next level, Khaos Control Solutions is the place to be. We strive to find the best of the pack when it comes to new staff, because we know that with motivated, self-disciplined people we don’t need rules and regulations to enforce behaviour, which results in a more relaxed working environment. If we need rules to govern people, then we have the wrong people, it’s that simple.
If you value career progression then this is the place for you, as talent and hard work are recognised and rewarded! We are a company that does not suffer from in-house politics and back-biting. Instead we have lots of enthusiastic individuals enjoying what they do by delivering results that they can be proud of. Everyone is willing to help each other deliver the company’s goals; of supplying the very best business software to companies across the UK. We were pleased to recently be awarded Employer of the Year at the Grantham Journal Business Awards, which was a great accomplishment for the company
