On Friday last week we received the pleasant news that our new ReqSuite® logo (“the blue bee”) has been registered as a trademark by the German Trademark and Patent Office.
But why a bee as a product logo?
Bees are very social creatures and extremely industrious. Their daily routine consists of collecting pollen and producing valuable honey from it. However, their work is not only important for this reason, but they also make an enormously important contribution to the functioning of our natural ecosystem as a whole.
Requirements engineers also play an analogous role in projects. They diligently gather requirements from many different sources and turn them into valuable artifacts for product development. Without them and their important contributions, projects and the systems developed within them would rarely be successful.
Since our ReqSuite® supports exactly this work in the best possible way, we see the bee as a suitable representation of our product.
