After a frustrating experience with a programmer from outside the US, my company reached out to US-based companies for the development of our most complex project, Tattered Weave. LightSky immediately impressed me with their detailed quote and a lengthy discussion over the phone about how best to write the code we needed. We've been working with LightSky for about a year now and they remain just as impressive. We get an immediate response to emergency issues - of which there have only been about three over a year - and every question and concern gets a solid, understandable answer. The occasional mistake that comes with human error (I'm a programmer too, I know it happens!) is always communicated well and dealt with quickly and appropriately. Choosing LightSky as our main source of programming has been the best decision I've made for the Tattered Weave project.
This ability to engage the client first in thinking strategically about their goals and then guide the client through a process of careful consideration of business solutions is what sets Lightsky apart from others who may have the technical competencies required for development of web tools but lack this forward-leaning ability to ensure appropriate fit between the clients goals and the business solutions best suited to achieve those goals.
While they did not routinely perform work for our genre of site before, they have proven to be extremely quick learners in adapting to a fast-paced, high-volume application, and we feel much more confident in the stability of the site since beginning to work with them.
When we launched our website in 2004, Lightsky staff did a remarkable job of developing profiles of the audiences we wanted to target, and hit all the marks in terms of the kind of design we were looking for at the time. The staff also offered great advice while we developed the content. We were on a very tight timeline and they stayed on schedule and helped keep us on schedule. Since we launched the site, the staff at Lightsky has always been very helpful and responsive to our needs. I highly recommend Lightsky's services.
We had a difficult situation with our company website and LightSky completely came to our rescue. They have been very helpful in providing us with several fixes that were reasonable and kept us functioning. I can't say enough about what they have been able to do for us and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
LightSky accepted our work--at Christmastime--on a totally ridiculous timeline. They succeeded in an emergency redoing of the first page of our website in time for the year's peak fundraising season, and doing it beautifully, exactly as we wished. The back-and-forth took place smoothly and promptly, allowing us to make final tweaks painlessly. I would strongly recommend LightSky to anyone needing fast and expert web design. Five stars!

LightSky got me back up & fully visible on Google, Yahoo & Bing. What a difference it has made for our business this year. Thank you Bruce Clingan & your entire staff for bringing our business back to life!

We were having an issue with SOLR search on our Website. LightSky provided a thorough and helpful evaluation of the work done so far. They delivered a professional report on time and on budget. I highly recommend them.
We came to LightSky with a wish list for a new site and they were able to incorporate everything we asked for. From the very beginning, they were attentive to our wishes and helped us think through areas about which we were unsure. Our site serves as the digital "front door" of our church and allows potential and current members to quickly access information about us. We can easily update the events and activities to keep the site current. We are very pleased with the site that LightSky has developed and we enjoy working with them. They make it a priority to listen, as well as teach, every step of the way.
