History

Bright Plaza, Inc. is a privately held company formed originally in 1982 with faculty and staff from Carnegie Mellon University, when the Internet was still a dream to only a few people, but now a dream come true. When the web was introduced in 1993, Bright Plaza was there alive and kicking, and will be here, with revolutionary new technologies.

Bright Plaza strategically designs and builds interactive communications systems — from goal-driven concept to commercial realization. We have created interactive communication tools, both hardware and software, for all types of businesses and organizations – from small local stores to Fortune 500 companies. With our core business in place and growing, Bright Plaza continues to develop tools that improve business and people’s lives.
