Bellingam, WA— Blu Sky Web Solutions (BSWS), a leading software development company and creators of BASICS Feedback, today announced it has partnered with First Light Web Services, a support and technology company. First Light will provide billing, support and installation services for BASICS Feedback.  The combination of BSWS’s market-leading survey, scheduling, and referral management software called 'BASICS Feedback' in combination with First Light Web Services billing and support services offerings, will create a complete engagement solution for clients. 

“As technology advances and support services become more complex, the need for a dedicated firm to provide the backend services has grown.” said Rick O’Connor, CEO of Blu Sky Web Solutions. “By partnering with First Light, BSWS will be better to provide support, billing and support services that better meet the needs of the growing BASICS Feedback platform. Having worked with Chris Stark (President of First Light Web Services) for over 10 years, this solution could not have been a better fit.” 

Blu Sky’s software product, BASICS Feedback, functions on various web browsers, so participants can message providers, easily complete pre-visit surveys online, view reminders for appointment follow-up, view feedback reports and much more. Providers can work more easily with their participants to develop management plans and track adherence to these plans, while monitoring progress.  Blu Sky's solutions have been trusted for use by more than one-hundred of America’s leading higher education institutions including, Columbia University, Western Washington University and various others.
