“Our site was built in Drupal an open source CMS and BrightLemon led the development of a site which contained multilingual capacity as well as an in depth registration and customer relationship management system as a foundation for our community driven website for English learners across mainland China and Hong Kong.
In order to enhance our relationship management with our users BrightLemon also developed a widget using Adobe AIR as well as a mobile website to cater for the growing number of users accessing the mobile web. All of this has contributed to over 50,000 members in our first year since launch.”
“When we turned up at BrightLemon with an ambitious but admittedly slightly sketchy idea for the Explore Rowing Social Network the guys helped us shape this idea into a coherent structure for delivery. Using their experience of previous social networks, BrightLemon brought the site together in what was a limited time period to produce something that every one of our stakeholders is happy with!
I’ve been involved in a number of web builds in the past and quite often the final site is very different from what you’d imagined and seen in mock-ups however this site was much better than our original vision and we are delighted with the end result.Thanks guys!”

“The first stage of Phase One rolled-out in April and initial results have been extremely encouraging. The original Take Action facility on Amnesty.org presented users with needless barriers-to-entry, resulting in only 50,000 actions being taken in just under two and a half years. In the two months since launch, the number of actions has nearly doubled, reaching 96,000 actions at the time of writing, a rise of approximately 1200% compared to actions taken prior to redevelopment”

“After an extensive search for a new web development company, we selected BrightLemon in November 2009 to help us transform our website from one which was very static and underused, to a slick, dynamic social site that allowed us to engage with our customers in a way in which we hadn’t before.
Today we’re continuing to work with BrightLemon on the next phases of our site and it’s their superior knowledge on social networks and trends, as well as their effective project management skills that keep us coming back! - Alastair, New Covent Garden Market”

“I was faced with the challenge to design and deliver a brand new community-driven travel site that required not only deep technical skills but also an astute knowledge of emerging web trends, business models and social strategies. It was clear to me that I needed a web ‘partner’ and not just a supplier. After a long search, we identified BrightLemon as the people for the job.
Using Drupal, an open source CMS, we set out on the journey with BrightLemon to build a rich social site that included all the features you’d expect from today’s popular social sites plus items specific to our value proposition. This included member generated travel guides with ‘save as draft’ options, integration with a complex hotel rate checking API and advanced ‘travel companion’ search using the latest search technology.
Has it been a success? We are still in the early stages of our site launch but our user feedback and customer growth is impressive. Over 95% of our users rated the good or very good, over 65% will use the site a bit or a lot more than before and over 2000 people have joined since it’s launch just a few weeks ago. That says it all really!

“The site was the ever-present tool that formed the backbone of the event and played a vital role in our reaching targets of 10% of the nation's school population, with over 2,500 schools and organisations registering and over 1 million students and teachers.”
Director of Shine National Schools Festival 2008, Shine 2009 Director of Communications
“I came to BrightLemon in December 2010 asking them to create a network for the schools involved in our project giving them the ability to share blogs and photos with each other in a fun and easy-to-use website.
BrightLemon more than achieved this and built us a fantastic site with exceptional design and branding and their idea to introduce a point scoring system to encourage the schools to participate was brilliant. The feedback from all the schools has been very positive and all of them are using it regularly and interacting with each other in a way that wasn’t possible before.
This is the fourth year of our Sprouts project and thanks to the website this is the best year so far! Also, they did incredibly well to turn this site around in what was a very short time frame.”

“Drupal training is best delivered by somebody who is working with it day to day and that it just what we got, a brilliant trainer who really knows his stuff. The training Brightlemon give is at just the right level to ensure that you go away armed with exactly the skills you require to start working in Drupal straight away. The training is flexible enough to cover areas of particular interest to participants while keeping it relevant to all. Everybody we dealt with at Brightlemon was friendly and helpful. I recommend these training courses and look forward to future courses at Brightlemon.”

“The course explained well the use of the advanced usage of the core features of Drupal. The trainer was very knowledgeable on a range of modules so that the training session felt quite dynamic rather than text book fodder!”
Advanced Drupal course
“A good introduction to Drupal, covered a lot of ground. Gave a good general understanding. Nice environment”
