About the Customer

Founded in 2010, The Control Group is an Internet marketing and development company based in San Diego. Best known for their flagship product, Instant Checkmate — a powerful background-check engine born in the era of online dating — other notable projects include Reverse Phone, an app to identify unknown callers, and NextGen Leads, an end-to=end lead generation service that cuts out the middleman to improve the process for consumers and buyers alike.

OnMetal is an absolute game-changer. It’s a perfect hybrid between the cloud and dedicated virtual. You’re getting the best of both worlds.
