A New Dawn for Software Development


A New Beginning

At First Light, we're passionate about software. If you have a project, no matter how big or small send us your requirements and we'll give you our expert advice on how best to acheive your goals. No need for a formal contract with us (unless you want one). We'll simply give you our opinion and an estimate to do the work. And it's your choice then if you want to go ahead. No hard sell!

Wealth of Experience

Specialising in JDEdwards but also with expertise in full stack web development and web services, we have a wealth of experience to call upon to meet the requirements of your project. For the larger projects requiring an element of project management then we can also help make sure everything on the project is completed on time.

We may be new to the scene as a standalone company but have many years behind us working for and managing development departments of other software houses. We hope to provide a more customer facing/customer friendly hands on feel than some of the larger software houses with the same level of expertise and lower rates too!

One Team!

We will be part of your team or create the team if none exists. We will guide you through the software process, from requirements gathering through functional and technical design and to the solution working to an agile or waterfall approach. The choice is yours.
