What our clients say

And why they love working with us

“Working with BSL on several projects has helped us to streamline our internal business processes. We gained experience and know-how from each interaction with the BSL support and development team. They have always been very helpful, promptly responded to our queries. They’ve always suggested solutions that would benefit our business, save costs, and add value to the product we provide to our clients.”
Theo Enache, Senior Associate – Pulse Management Team, PwC

 

“We are amazingly proud of the work BSL has done for us. BSL’s team worked with us through a professional, well-thought-out website design, development, and content editing process. Their commitment to quality, technical expertise, and process discipline is inspiring. They delivered a Corporate site that meets our expectations and gets awesome feedback from our customers and investors.”
Cristina Cocco, Marketing Director WCC Group Corporate

 

“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

 

“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.”
