Bruel & Kjaer expands support of I-deas test products
13 March 2006
Bruel & Kjaer has entered into a partnership with the Canadian software development company Maya HTT to become the exclusive sales and support channel for key NVH software products and active software maintenance contracts recently acquired by Maya HTT through its purchase of MTS Corporation.
This news will be welcomed by MTS customers following the company’s decision to withdraw from the noise and vibration (NVH) market. The new partnership is committed to continuing the sales and support of I-Deas Pro and related software products for noise and vibration analysis, serving new and existing customers for products previously owned by MTS through a well-established global network.
“The accelerating time-to-market that vehicle manufacturers expect is transforming the way the world engages with NVH problems”, said Bruel & Kjaer’s Managing Director Karl Kristian Hvidt Nielsen. “Bruel & Kjaer is at the centre of this trend, and the I-Deas test products are a perfect supplement to our PULSE software and hardware platform, and our sensor technology. I-Deas Pro already has measurement support for Bruel & Kjaer PULSE acquisition hardware, and data can be acquired and shared between both products. With a fully integrated solution we are in the best position to redefine the way engineers and businesses tackle noise and vibration issues.”
Maya HTT of Montreal, Canada was founded in 1982 and specialises in engineering software development and associated services. Working with its strategic alliance partner UGS, Maya HTT has an installed software base of 4000 users. As an experienced I-Deas product developer, and with an expanded development team, Maya HTT will complete all software development activities on the acquired MTS products to ensure that future product maintenance needs and market-driven enhancements are provided in releases closely aligned with the UGS I-Deas and Bruel & Kjaer product strategies.
Bruel & Kjaer assumes responsibility for all technical product support, and its global support network will be expanded with additional qualified personnel experienced in the MTS NVH product lines. For many years a distributor of I-Deas Pro and related products in Japan, Bruel & Kjaer is well prepared to provide this support.
The company will work directly with customers to understand their current situation and assist them in meeting their future requirements with a combination of the acquired product lines, the extensive PULSE product family and associated accessories. Bruel & Kjaer will contact MTS users directly to provide new contact information for technical and sales support, and also welcomes any specific questions. Alternatively, users can e-mail Ifirstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be contacted by a representative assigned to their geographical area.
