Logrus International Corporation chosen as the Lotus/IBM Software Engineering Supplier of the Year 2002 

Logrus International Corporation has been chosen by IBM Ireland Dublin Software Lab for recognition as the Lotus/IBM Software Engineering Supplier of the Year 2002 (category: Outsourced Localization Engineering).

From its production site located in Moscow, Logrus Russia provides software engineering for a variety of Lotus/IBM software projects, and has most recently been building, testing, and bug-fixing seven language releases of Lotus Notes 6.

Ellen McMahon, the Project Manager for Notes/Domino 6, said: "Outsourcing the testing and engineering of seven languages to Logrus helped us meet our delivery targets for the language versions. We work with a team of strong technical vendors and we value their input. What made Logrus stand out on this project was their technical knowledge, high quality standards, and the fact that they required little support from the internal engineering team at IBM - a welcome quality on a project of this size and complexity."
