National Instruments Announces PC-Based Solution for Matrimonially Inept
AUSTIN, Texas -- April 1, 1998 -- National Instruments announced today a new hardware and software system designed for scientists and engineers who are looking for a PC-based solution for finding a spouse. The new Spousal Acquisition Toolkit combines the company's IMAQ hardware and software for image acquisition and analysis with BioBench, a PC-based turnkey data acquisition and analysis software package for acquiring and analyzing data from real-world physiological signals.
"This was something of a reversal in paradigms for us," said Carsten Thomsen, Vice President of Engineering. "Normally, our products acquire data, then analyze it. With the Spousal Acquisition Toolkit, the analysis comes before the acquisition. We really had to rethink the entire process."
"We've had enormous success with the beta testing of this new product on National Instruments employees," said Tim Dehne, Vice President of Marketing (and user of the alpha version of the product). "It worked for John and Kathleen Pasquarette (Product Marketing and Sales); it worked for Devin and Candi Shelgren (Events and International Sales); it worked for Tad Druart and Nancy Bahl (Public Relations and Software Marketing); it worked for Alison McGinnis and Travis Ferguson (Corporate Marketing and DAQ Marketing). GPIB Marketing Manager Amar Patel has already placed his order."
"I can't wait!" said Patel, beaming.
