BESPOKE BLIDGETS – can’t find the BLidget you are looking for?

Operators with an in-house development capability may build their own BLidgets using our SDK. The SDK, which is the same framework we use internally, enables rapid development and delivers robust outcomes. The SDK / BLidget approach is more powerful than simply calling an API as it utilises the BLAM workflow engine to manage the run process.

Alternatively, Blue Lucy will develop any required BLidgets as part of an implementation project. And, if the required BLidget is for a commercially available platform, and would be of use to our other customers, we don’t charge you for the development effort.
