Every industry has its challenges. The music industry is known for its legal complexities. Rights’Up is a contract management app that is intended to help small record labels collect and distribute royalties. It uses computation-intensive algorithms and processes to compare contracts with sales data from various sources. Belighted is working with Rights’Up on a plan for incremental, efficient development:
Put a prototype into the hands of users quickly with a Design Sprint
Rapid movement toward a minimum sellable product
Ongoing improvements after launch to keep development agile and efficient
A startup may go through multiple iterations before finding product/market fit. We worked with DeeCide to develop a marketplace solution for insurance quotes initially. Thanks to proactive market validation, it quickly became obvious that the process did not work for sellers. We were able to pivot to a SaaS model to better serve sellers and their customers.
Launched complex product in a few months
Streamlined workflow for sellers by 75%
Opportunities for market validation
Pivot to a SaaS business model
Learning management systems (LMS) have been around for a while. When it first entered the market in 1999, Dokeos had initially gained traction with a solution for e-learning tailored for businesses. But the heavily customized format was expensive to maintain. Seeking to remain competitive, the company identified opportunity in a specialized market - compliance training for highly regulated industries. Belighted helped the company pivot and meet the following goals:
Simplify its offering into SaaS format for long-term scalability
Reduce maintenance costs
Improve the user experience (UX)
Competitive edge with smart reporting

Years of experience
Leading brands in Belgium and in Europe trust us and rely on Belighted development to deliver perfection every day.
“Belighted has enabled us to reduce our time to market on a few projects where we needed extra help. One of their developers supported by their product manager came and only 3 weeks later one project was already done. No time was wasted on onboarding, they were rapidly operational and a part of our agile scrum environment. Moreover, the value delivered in terms of product & software development expertise was very much appreciated by our technical team.”
“It's a real pleasure to work with Belighted. They are focused on delivering features with business value and they like to get stuff done. This vision allowed us to launch our products with just a couple of months of development and help us to get user feedback”
Antoine De Beys
“Product development best practices are evolving at such a fast pace that it was difficult for me to make decisions related to the software product and the technical skills needed. Belighted's advice brought me confidence and gave me clear steps that helped me maximize my chances of success.”
“We wanted to build a new version of our learning management software, and Belighted convinced us to do a design sprint together before jumping into development itself. This helped us make much more informed decisions on what we needed, and how best to do it. In the end, it allowed us to better prioritise our project, and prevented us from going in the wrong direction.”
Bertrand De Praetere
“Working together, we were able to rapidly prototype and deploy a world-first insurance check-up algorithm. From the initial conceptualisation until the first live trials by users, it took us a rapid 3 months of close collaboration. Today Seraphin is still successfully using the same healthy technical foundations laid by Belighted.”
