RBC SOFT recognized as one of the best companies on the Russian IT market
RBC SOFT is ranked among the leaders in the first rating of companies operating on the Russian IT market. The rating is a joint project by the Kommersant-Dengi economic weekly and iOne. Information Technologies.
According to methodology employed by the rating organizers, all companies were compared using a non-dimensional index that characterized the scale of their business. The scale is mainly determined by revenues (with a 0.9 multiplier) received by companies over the first three quarters of 2003. A company's staff, client diversity (amount that is equal to the number of clients per operational employee), and a branch network also contribute to the index. For software developers, income from IT services connected with the implementation and support of their products, as well as license sales, are taken into account. The efficiency of a business is characterized by the amount that corresponds to revenues per operational employee. The ranking of software developers is given in Table 1.

It is obvious that without Oracle and SAP (according to their corporate policies, Russian offices of these international companies could not disclose local figures) Microsoft's regional office looks the leader. Among Russian companies, Cognitive Technologies, 1C and RBC SOFT are the most noticeable.

"I would like to point out that our sales data was confirmed by our official auditor KPMG.
