Coronavirus - COVID-19

Like many companies, BSL wants to protect the health of clients, and our employees. So from Monday 16th March our entire team will be working remotely. The impact on our customers and productivity will be kept as low as possible. However, there may not always be anyone available to take calls, and you may not be able to reach individual employees directly. Please leave a message, or mail bslsec@brightside.nl and we will call you as soon as possible. Martyn Simpson, Director, BSL.

“Keylane wants people to be themselves. That’s why we’ve agreed to behave exactly the same way at work, as we do at home. Simply because it makes us happy and we believe a company is only as awesome as the people within it. That’s why we strive to bring onboard passionate people with amazing talent, and we work hard to support them in both professional and personal health and development.”
Manager Talent Acquisition, Keylane

 

“The success of our clients is crucial to the Bright Side of Software. So our software development is carried out in close partnership with these clients. Building long-term relationships – supporting and enhancing applications as client needs change over time.“
Martyn Simpson – Director, Bright Side of Life

 

“For WCC, a fast growing company, attracting new staff is very important. That’s why we wanted a modern, fresh looking career site that can be used on all platforms. And created with Drupal. BSL has done that perfectly. Throughout the project BSL kept us informed, and they were flexible when we needed a little time. And all that within budget. Fantastic!”
HRM Team WCC

 

“With regard to technical development and infrastructure management, The Bright Side of Life in Breukelen has been a particularly constructive and creative partner for all these years.”
Jef van Gool, Product owner Literatuurplein

 

”During the first month after the site was launched, VROUW.nl reached more than one million unique users. That was just the beginning. 2,213,135 users visited the site in April 2016, 42% via mobile, 20% via tablet and 38% via desktop. With these results, VROUW.nl is in the top 3 of most popular websites for women in the Netherlands within three months.”

Working from home, but staying connected

We’re working from home as much as possible due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re doing all we can to keep Business as Usual. Technical innovation is part of our DNA, and so we’re perhaps finding this easier than others. Nevertheless, we are having to change the way we work in response to these challenges. Our blog tells you about some of the steps we are taking.

Eric Wijnands, Designer and Developer, with a love of Jazz

BSL has always looked for designer and developer candidates who have their own stories to tell. Rounded individuals who offer more than just IT skills. Our work frequently begins with understanding the work carried out by our clients. So we supply inventive teams that deliver usable, productive solutions – not just code.

Long-term relationships brings rewards to clients

2019 is a year where our long-term relationships with clients have kept us extremely busy. BSL provides highly skilled teams that complement our clients’ needs. As a result, we respond quickly to new demands. Designing, developing and delivering unique applications. This year we’ve worked on many new developments for existing clients.

Moscow performance for Marc Stoffels

Before Marc Stoffels made the move into IT, he was an actor. One of the theatre companies where he played, Het Houten Huis was recently invited to bring their performance to Moscow. A trip to Moscow is an experience in itself, and BSL didn’t want to deprive him of the opportunity. But with one condition – we asked him to write a blog about his trip!

Conversational Design helps increase conversion rates

Many websites ask visitors to share their contact details. And for many years the best anyone could come up with is a contact form. There are ways to make such forms more inviting, but a contact form shares many characteristics with a nightclub bouncer – it keeps people out. So we’ve started using Conversational Design UI’s. A technique that puts website visitors at their ease…
