Similarly, over 20 years ago, we were introduced to another company that needed a new product to do quality assurance for diagnostic analyzers. This company, in turn, introduced us to Michael, who worked at a firm that creates linearity and calibration verification products. Around 2003, we built and deployed a web-based quality control monitoring application for Michael at his new company. Eventually, that company was purchased by a multinational biotechnology product development company, with revenues of more than $20 billion and approximately 65,000 employees globally.
Situations like this can often “toll the death knell” for products like ours. Instead, it became the driving force for significant product expansion and user adoption. The product has since been rebranded by the new company, and we continue to support and grow it as we grow our relationship with them.
Michael, in the meantime, moved on from this company and has continued to engage with us over this past decade-plus. As COO of his next employer, Michael commissioned us to do some consulting and development work there. Currently, he is an executive of a company that manufactures and sells linearity and calibration verification kits for human diagnostic analyzers. We’re creating a brand-new, cutting-edge, web-based platform to support their quality assurance operations.
So…are we starting to see a trend here yet? We aim to create meaningful and lasting relationships with people. Through our core values of honesty, integrity, reliability and commitment to innovation, we strive to make sure those relationships blossom over the decades.
