About BrightStarr. Leading Microsoft Consultants.

BrightStarr is an award winning technology consultancy that has been working with clients to build digital workplaces, platforms and tools on Microsoft technology for over ten years. As a globally recognized Microsoft Gold Partner we are regularly singled out for incorporating cutting-edge design and technical excellence into all of our customer engagements.

Why We Do It

We believe technology, when thoughtfully presented and adopted by the enterprise, is key to employee satisfaction and a company's overall success. Every experience should be expertly designed for ease of use, engagement, and longevity of value. Finding unique solutions to tough business challenges is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

We deliver the whole package from concept to reality. Never over-complicated, never underdone.

Where We Came From. We Are BrightStarr.

Our founders, Will Saville and Rich Paterson, have a profound passion for technology and development, but each approached their interests from a slightly different perspective. At the beginning of his career, Will was a professional chef which allowed him to express his visual creativity and aesthetics. Rich, on the other hand, was a physicist with an incredible curiosity to discover how things worked and how to make them even better. After working together at a previous company, they soon discovered that when they brought their talents together, they were able to generate remarkably engaging solutions. This discovery led to the launch of BrightStarr over a decade ago.

This company ethos still remain the same and are a fundamental part of our culture. BrightStarr continues to deliver solutions that offer the perfect blend of form and function.
