BP use the original version that we created for them (PEIT) in over 200 assets around the world. In a relatively small subset of those assets, they counted nearly 150 "Improvement Actions" that produced a loss reduction roughly equivalent to $2.2 Billion in 2010. As for industry awards, within BP, o…Read more

The Young Light Ethos
The Young Light team is a cohesive collection of highly experienced and talented individuals with a relatively flat management hierarchy which operates very effectively through mutual respect rather than rank. Our view is that each individual is much more than just a “commodity” developer or DBA and will often be able to draw on their wider experience, interests and talents. Although each member has their own area of expertise, all are encouraged to contribute to every aspect of a project. This approach not only empowers and motivates, it engenders a great team spirit, excellent communication and great productivity.
Our clients work directly with the team rather than being cushioned by layers of management, sales professionals and analysts. This method of working maximises communication, avoids misunderstandings, enhances problem solving and therefore promotes a very effective and efficient development & support lifecycle.
We believe this constitutes an enlightened alternative to the more conventional bureaucratic approach which continues to fail to deliver on many major projects. There is no substitute for an established team of quality individuals.
Our products add value in a very simple way: For a relatively modest investment, our tools help our customers generate a very significant return in terms of performance improvement and therefore, bottom line profit.
Our software development service provides value by always delivering. Rather than pull in various commodity programmers who have never worked together, we have a team of highly experienced and talented individuals who have worked very successfully together for years. We aim never to disappoint as the reputation we earn is much more important and more compelling than any advertising campaign can be.
