About Bright Software Development

Quality software development for nearly 15 years

What differentiates Bright Software from other consultant firms is our ability to “wrap” technology around customers’ business goals, not vice versa. No matter what the industry, no matter how large or small the project, understanding the larger context in which our work will bring value to your organization is key to our success.

Ray D’Andrade, President and owner of Bright Software Development, is your lead on all software development, providing you with a trusted point person to ensure the success of your project’s management from beginning to end.

With more than 20 years of experience in applying technology to solve business challenges, Ray is known to many customers as the first guy who “gets it.” Ray ramps up quickly on the objectives of even the most complex business models or operating environments, and can effectively translate your needs to his team of developers because he’s hands-on. Unlike some project managers, he doesn’t simply pass off instructions—he’s actually developing code alongside them as needed, overseeing the work to ensure you get what you need.

Ray began his career as an Environmental Engineer where he gained invaluable experience in dealing with different businesses, budgets, and contractors. Even as an Engineer, he found himself constantly finding new ways to apply technology to solve customers’ problems. Customers were thrilled, and he found his passion.

After seven years of hands-on experience with computers, Ray founded “Bright Network Solutions” in 2000 to better serve an already established customer base—and his list of satisfied customers has been growing ever since. In 2010, after 10 years in the industry, our company changed its name to “Bright Software Development,” to better align our brand with the software services we provide.
