Our mission at ControlSoft is to bring advanced control-based solutions to the marketplace. The phrase “Advanced Process Control Made Easy” truly reflects the value we bring to our customers. We have come a long way in pursuing our goal; we will continue this mission for many years to come.
Over the past 30 plus years, we have been growing year after year, continually and consistently and our business extends globally. In addition to several U.S. regional offices, we also have offices, presence, and channels in Asia and Europe and international business is now a significant portion of our business.
Our products are considered by end-user clients to be the most advanced control products in the marketplace. To be on the cutting edge of technology innovation, in addition to extensive in-house product and technology development, we continue to maintain close ties with the process control research department at Case Western Reserve University.
More important than the superior technologies we bring to the marketplace is our commitment to our customers. We continually strive to provide the best product and technical support, and we are proud of the numerous compliments and endorsements we receive. Our focus on customers is unwavering. That is how we have been doing business for more than 30 years and is the key to our future.

Pioneering Advanced Technologies
Our engineers have developed
and patented a wide range of control technologies, and have defined
control strategies for complex and difficult-to-control processes.
Our suite of control technologies includes model-based auto-tuning,
heuristic adaptive control, process loop monitoring and diagnostic
methods, and model-based multivariable control such as IMC (Internal
Model Control), CC (Coordinated Control), and MMC (Modular Multivariable
We are known for our technologies, which have been
licensed by more than fifteen prestigious control system manufacturers
to embed in their control systems. Our licensees include:
Process Control Systems and Software
ControlSoft has developed a suite of systems
and software geared towards meeting the control system requirements
of small-to-medium-sized applications in the process industry. Our
product development is focused on providing better process control
solutions and helping process engineers to do their job better. To
service these needs, we have developed two major product lines.
Advanced Process Control Systems
The MANTRA advanced process control system is modular in architecture,
and can easily handle systems with a few loops or a few hundred loops.
MANTRA offers powerful process control, batch sequencing, and discrete
logic, and is network-enabled with full peer-to-peer communication on
the Ethernet. The system configuration environment is centered on the
Microsoft NT operating system, and supports state-of-the-art object-oriented
and ActiveX-based design.

Software Tools for Engineering and Maintenance
ControlSoft's powerful suite of application software is led by INTUNE,
our flagship product, with thousands of licenses installed and in operation
worldwide. INTUNE automatically tunes PID loops using an automated test
procedure, and saves users significant amounts of time and money by eliminating
costly trial-and-error methods of loop tuning. A new loop management
software is designed to optimize the performance of regulatory control
loops by detecting loop problems, performing sensor diagnostics, and
providing overall statistical analysis of historical data.
