Carving a Niche in the High Tech Pacific Northwest Since 1992
In 1992 Pritchett and his partner quit their jobs at Microsoft and turned their "hobby project" into a real business. Launched from a basement—the kitchen table was the software assembly line.
Headquartered in Bellingham, Logos now has 130 employees and publishes more than 9,000 resources. Logos is the largest developer of Bible software and has customers in 144 countries.
"Bellingham has been a great place to grow the business," says Pritchett. "We have employees from the Bellingham area and support the local businesses here."
Logos goes far beyond providing software that searches the Bible; it provides a library of books and resources. Its unique selling point is that it also provides power tools and reports to help users find the things they need in the books when researching a particular Bible passage or preparing a sermon.
In May 2006 Logos released Logos Bible Software 3. This product contains exclusive databases and tools that provide new ways of looking at the Bible that didn't exist before. Users who have no knowledge of Greek and Hebrew can easily connect these original languages to the English text with the tools in Logos Bible Software 3.
