Review Summary

Thanks to the changes they implemented, we now do 80 deployments per week. Digital sales were up by 41% in the last holiday season. At the peak of this year’s holiday season, we project that 415 stores will help fulfill orders. Furthermore, our APIs and platforms continue to scale, in addition to the fact that over 70 members of our in-house team are now well-versed in DevOps.
Basically, we went from nobody wanting to talk about DevOps because it seemed like only Silicon Valley web companies were doing it, to a growing number of people talking about the amazing successes resulting from it. The net present value on investment is amazing.
They planned everything well in advance, leaving nothing to a last-minute rush. They also maintained open lines of communication and scheduled weekly meetings for updates, in addition to constant engagement on Slack.

DevOps DevOps-as-Service for an Enterprise Retail Brand

What service was provided as part of the project?

DevOps

Describe your project in brief

We rely on thousands of applications and APIs to support our business. Over the years, we had lost sight of our engineering and a culture of stopping changes whenever something broke or pushing changes in big batches had crept in. Our IT organization was too complex, with silos inside silos. Server provisions required several teams, and we lacked end-to-end accountability. This prompted the need for us to move from a large legacy enterprise delivery machine to a more modern, nimble, and Agile technology company.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Their professionalism, especially in relation to meeting deadlines, and their transparency throughout the whole process.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

We enjoyed collaborating with them, so I’d say the whole experience was a net positive, and for any challenges that arose, they were always on hand to find the best possible solution.

Describe your project in brief

Building A Product Recommendation System for a Consumer Electronics eCommerce Company. We were looking to improve our product recommendation system to deliver personalized product recommendations to our users, enhance their shopping experience, and boost sales.
Our previous recommendation system relied on simple rule-based algorithms, which did not account for individual consumer preferences and behavior. We felt it was time to upgrade to a more advanced solution that could analyze customer data and make accurate product recommendations based on machine learning algorithms.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Everything was clear from the jump with them. You could tell they know their stuff.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

All went well. We had to adjust our budget slightly, but I have no complaints after the results!

Review Summary

Bluelight Consulting recommended and put together a team that designed and developed a comprehensive software solution that would automate our workflows, integrate disparate systems, and deliver real-time insights for better decision-making.
For this project, they were responsible for gathering requirements, overseeing the UI/UX design, system architecture, agile development, integration and data migration, QA testing, as well as the final deployment.
With the application, we have achieved enhanced operational efficiency with previously manual processes automated, eliminating redundant data entry and reducing human errors. Moreover, we now have better visibility, communication, and decision-making thanks to the analytics and custom reports we are able to gather and generate. Their performance was satisfactory.

Web Development, Software Development, DevOps

Describe your project in brief

We had a clear plan on how partnering with Bluelight Consulting would fit into our overall project. They focused more on assessing our talent needs and finding the most qualified IT professionals who would fit best with our existing team. We needed to fill the roles in DevOps, Quality Assurance, Project Management, and Machine Learning. Thanks to our cooperation with them, our project delivery time is up by 22%. Now we are able to deliver high-quality software modules within set timelines, which has had a positive knock-on effect on our customers' revenues and overall satisfaction with our work.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

For them, it's not just another project to bill. They have done a good job in ensuring that their team integrates well with ours, buys into our culture and connects with our business objectives. It's a pleasure to be working with them so far.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Maybe the pricing is slightly on the higher side compared to working with offshore providers, but it's still cost-effective if bringing other factors into consideration like the timezone alignment of the team, culture compatibility, and of course the cost of hiring onshore.

Review Summary

Our objective was to deliver an EMR solution that helps doctors to easily manage patient records and get quick access to their full medical history. Additionally, the solution would allow general practitioners benefit from features such as examination requests, e-prescriptions, previews of test results, and integrations with 3rd party systems (e.g. for external examinations). Thanks to our engagement with Bluelight Consulting, we were able to deliver the right technology and tools that allows medical practitioners to deliver better care to people in need.

Our cooperation with Bluelight Consulting worked out very well. Their experts find the right solutions for various problems, they work quickly, provide the right people for each job, and offer valuable suggestions on how to improve the product. Their flexibility and ability to adjust to our situation was the most important factor for the success of the project.

Review Summary

We Identified that to scale our business, changes needed needed to be made to the underlying application hosting platform. The infrastructure supporting the product needed refinement to support customer growth and remove single points of failure. There were also optimizations in the development process that could be made to enable new features to be released, faster. The development team had a desire to adopt a new methodology to foster good DevOps practices.
Bluelight Consulting provided the thought leadership and technical delivery we were looking for to re-architect the application hosting platform and implement a new continuous delivery integration pipeline. This has had a positive knock-on effect on the efficiency of running our business processes and eliminated the challenge we had of having multiple single points of failure.

Review Summary

From the get-go, you can tell that Bluelight Consulting's certified specialists have field experience with large-scale migration projects across a variety of industries. Look, our legacy solution stack was leveraging ec2 to run our applications, it was expensive and we had to dedicate entire servers to one application. The team from Bluelight Consulting was able to work with our legacy applications. They containerized them and created a CI pipeline to support building and deploying to GKE. Now we can run the same amount of applications on a third of resources. They delivered.

AWS to GCP Cloud Migration for a multi-media and telecommunications company

What service was provided as part of the project?

Web Development

Describe your project in brief

We decided to transfer our customer-facing applications away from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Google Cloud Platform. This need arose as a result of the high-cost structure, dependence on AWS services, and the lack of flexibility challenges we encountered while operating our business on AWS. All our web and mobile applications through which our customers managed services, paid bills, checked rewards, and subscribed to plans were all on AWS, but it was proving unsustainable for our business.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

They ran a really big project with many stakeholders, really went out of their way to ensure that stakeholders are consulted & eased in their concerns

They are also extremely flexible with the changes we requested and always completed the projects on schedule. Really happy to have worked with them

They took over the project and successfully migrated our consumer-facing apps from AWS to GCP

The best part is we achieved significant cost savings, as we had envisioned with the success of this migration.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

No cons - we can tell that they are the complete package indeed.

Review Summary

They have maintained clear and open communication between us and are always committed to ensuring we are on the same page at every stage of the development process. We use slack for communication and Clickup for managing projects. We’ve used a few nearshore development companies and, by far, Bluelight Consulting has been the best we’ve dealt with. Their developers delivered quickly, deployments were relatively bug-free, they were reactive to our concerns and worked with us instead of trying to milk the situation. We had some initial miscommunication between the sales staff and delivery team, but the team handled the situation very professionally and came through without issue. Top marks.

Software Development

Describe your project in brief

We have a proprietary custom software product that is essential to how our business runs and serves our clients. Unfortunately, we were facing challenges with the existing development partner responsible for updating and maintaining our software. In a nutshell:
- 2 years elapsed without any major updates
- Software features did not correspond with their requests
- Communication was a problem and ineffective

We decided to work with the team at Bluelight Consulting to get product development back on track with a range of new feature releases. We also needed a reimagination of the application's architecture to allow for larger clients and build a new sustainable process to ensure visibility, alignment, and communication between client teams. Lastly, we wanted them to be able to work with in-house staff to design and build a tool to implement best Agile practices for product development.
