About us

About Us
Our History - an Independent Company
Founded in 2006, Bright Logic the developers of Acquaint CRM, are a dynamic team of programmers, designers and property professionals. The very first lines of code for what is now Acquaint, were written many years before as a one-off solution for a local estate agent. Encouraged by its positive effect and success within their business and seeing a niche for a cost effective, robust solution, a team was brought together who shared the same passion and ethics, the product was crafted and Bright Logic was born.

Our aim is is to provide you with the most effective great value tools to grow your property business.

We pride ourselves on providing excellent client service through our innovative approach, attention to detail, cost-saving ideas, responsiveness to challenges and commitment to quality and on-time delivery.

We are a genuine team-based company utilising our multiple skill sets to address our clients' needs. For all of these reasons we receive a high proportion of our business from recommendations.

We are an independent company, 100% self-funded, with resources and finance to secure our future. We have enjoyed year-on-year growth, with expansion throughout the UK and via regional distributors in Ireland and the Channel Islands.

What We Do
Our TeamOur Team A-Z
  • Grant Jaquest
    Grant Jaquest
    Director, Lead Developer
    Using over 30 years’ experience in developing software Grant heads our dynamic team. Having worked on some very prestigious software projects for other companies, Grant set up Bright Logic when he saw the opportunity to use his talent for coding to develop a comprehensive solution for Property companies. His ethos of client care is in everything we do.

    On the odd occasion he’s not at work he spends his time with his wife, teenage daughters, and menagerie of animals including dogs, cats, and chickens. He escapes every now and then to pursue his love of football, music, cinema and local pubs. He often receives strange looks for wearing shorts and flip flops for 8 months of the year, we think it’s the heat generated by some sort of internal reactor (like Iron Man) that’s fuelled on biscuits...
  • Eddie Coe
    Eddie Coe
    Head of Web Design
    Eddie is in charge of the "Colouring In" for Bright Logic. He is responsible for the planning, design and production of our clients’ websites and the production of our marketing materials. His career in design started with Video production for a communications company, his talent for the technical lead to working in software production and website building before joining Bright Logic in 2009.

    Eddie is married with three children (and at one point 10 guinea pigs), he nearly went to Art School, but graduated from Salford University with an honours degree in Chemical Engineering instead. Eddie’s first Job was in a sewage works (he forgot the golden rule to always keep his mouth shut), certainly not an issue when he worked in a brewery. When he’s not persuading his children that they don’t need another guinea pig Eddie loves Photography, Film, Cooking and Cycling, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Star Wars, fortunately his irrational fear of spiders doesn’t feature much at work.

  • David Chesworth
    David Chesworth
    Sales & Training
    David joined us in early 2018, looking for a career change that still involved helping people so he was a great fit for our team here. Whilst pursuing a successful career as a personal trainer gaining numerous qualifications in nutrition, soft tissue therapy and sports massage he could never shake the IT bug, stretching muscles by day then stretching his brain at night studying computing in his spare time, totally self-taught in IT his interest an passion is evident. He still keeps fit going to the gym or playing football 3-4 times a week, he’s also become an avid cook and photographer to feed his girlfriend’s Instagram habit, and if it isn’t a photograph of food it will probably be his impossibly cute dog…
  • Clare Ayling
    Clare Ayling
    Project Manager - QA
    Software Project Manager extraordinaire. Clare is passionate about software; having graduated Brunel University with an honours degree in Business she started a career in CRM software. Over that 20 years she has managed large software development teams in UK, India, Israel, USA and Ukraine. We also tap into her talent as our very own ‘Babelfish’ translating ‘geek speak’ into English.

    Married with 2 children (and a Ninja cat) she can be found in casinos drinking champagne and playing Poker (like the truly dedicated mother she is) or watching London Irish. Former child star (complete lie) and collector of Star Wars figures (sadly true)
  • James Knopp
    James Knopp
    Senior Developer
    If it can be coded James can do it! Having joined Bright Logic back in 2007, originally as a member of the Support team, James’ talent for code was evident, he has now been working as a developer with us for many years spending his days delving into and manipulating code. James' geekiness doesn't end with programming, he also enjoys games of Netrunner and frequently constructs decks out of the blue.

    James isn't as introverted as the geek stereotype would have you believe. He's always around to help people out, whether at work or outside of work, and greets everyone with a smile. When James hasn't got his head stuck in code he's often found at heavy metal gigs. Iron Maiden and Metallica are among his favourite bands.
  • Adam Lewis
    Adam Lewis
    Developer
    Adam loves to code and try out all sorts of alternative and new technologies / programming languages – Plan 9, Haiku, Google Fuchsia, Golang to name a few.

    He joined Bright Logic in 2017 and has already made many contributions to our products, services and back-end infrastructure.

    He’s a big fan of watching anime and listening to metal music. He’s also an occasional guitar player although he finds learning new songs takes too long.
  • Mariela Albani
    Mariela Albani
    Web Design
    Being so widely travelled we were very lucky that Mariela ended up here, given her talent for languages she could have worked almost anywhere in Europe. Having worked as a graphic designer in London and Reading for architectural firms and printing companies, whose main clients were property developers, she came with an excellent understanding and skill set, it’s all about property… She became our very own Picasso joining the team in 2017, working wonders with colours and graphics but, unusually for one so designed talented, she is also a bit of a geek and interested in coding, especially Javascript, to make our websites not just beautiful but also engaging. She has an MA in Information Design from Reading University and is currently working on a black belt in Origami, her love of Star Wars is just the(beautifully designed) cherry on the top.
  • Sam Watson
    Sam Watson
    Support Team Leader
    Sam joined us in 2014 as support team leader. Before joining Bright Logic, Sam attended Plymouth University graduating in Mathematics with an Education degree. He has over 4 years of experience within the lettings market.

    Now his main duties include delegating the support tasks including the all-important whose turn it is to make the tea! He enjoys his football on a Tuesday night with James P and Grant (running rings around them), taking his motorbike out for a lunch time cruise (on sunny days!) and spending a ridiculous amount of his spare time competing against his brother at FIFA.
  • James Penney
    James Penney
    Support
    James joined our support team in 2017, he’s a great asset to the team with a lovely manner and genuine care for our clients. He loves football! He achieved a stonking 2:1 in Computer Science from UWE, his placement year in Barcelona during this time saw him working for a Spanish language school looking after their computers systems and updating their website (and also watching a lot of football and eating lots of Tapas, well why wouldn’t you?) His love of good cuisine is evident by the food envy we all have at lunch time but this is eclipsed by his love of football (despite supporting Reading).

    James is a qualified football referee, although I’m not sure how much that helps him playing football with his colleagues on Tuesdays and 5 a-side on Mondays, and when he’s not playing for real he’s often found playing virtually, both FIFA and Football Manager, did we mention he loves football? Don’t worry though if you call support and get James he won’t talk about football just give you great service. Quality.
