Brightcore Consulting History

Brightcore Consulting was formed in 2006 by Doug Swenson. The right team at the right time is how we describe it to those who ask. By combining the executive level management skills, 18 years of e-Learning experience and LMS hosting expertise with hard work and dedication, Brightcore has succeeded where our predecessors have failed. We do not have a mission statement, but these bullets describe who and what we are.

  • We help clients from Canada to Peru and Australia to the entire United States.
  • We work hard and we play hard, but we always put the needs of our clients above all else.
  • We are geeks at heart, but not snobby nerds about it.
  • Not your average IT shop to say the least.

What Makes Us Different?

At Brightcore, we specialize in getting organizations started with an LMS Solution or migrating your LMS from another host to Brightcore. We provide the entire range of services related to e-learning. Most hosting companies will not be your resource for learning content development, LMS customization and LMS hosting. We are not an official partner so we are not held back by the rules that the LMS developers impose on their partners. We can change core code for your requirements. Official partners will not do this for clients in our experience.

Social Responsibility

At Brightcore Consulting, we conduct our business in a socially responsible and ethical manner. We understand our responsibility to promote positive community organizations. Brightcore Consulting is proud to support charities and non-profit organizations through donations and special product pricing.

Doug Swenson

Managing Partner

Doug Swenson brings over 20 years of successful technology management and technology consulting experience to Brightcore Consulting. As Managing Partner, Doug provides our clients with valuable advice on strategic planning, future products, our services and infrastructure with a uniquely technical competence.

Prior to forming Brightcore Consulting, Doug held management positions for several key players within the Information Technology community.  Doug was the Manager of Engineering at etNetworks. While at etNeworks, he helped design and implement the delivery of video-on-demand educational content over satellite for IBM Learning Services and Cisco Systems. Later, with Convergent Systems, Doug collaborated with Cisco Systems again to design a global satellite network to deliver internal training and live events via IPTV.

Most recently, Doug was the Chief Technology Officer for Silver State Helicopters, a helicopter flight training academy with over 32 locations across the United States, where he deployed and managed a nationwide company network architecture for over 750 employees and 2400 students.  His previous experience with IBM and Cisco allowed him to spearhead the development of the SSH Distance Learning Program, which standardized helicopter ground school for the industry while increasing operational effectiveness for students and instructors alike. That program was an industry first for the rotorcraft industry and saved SSH almost $3 million in training costs during the first year of implementation.

Swenson received his Bachelor of Science in Management and Systems Engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. He holds many industry certifications and is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE).
