BRUEL & KJAER EXPANDS SUPPORT OF I-DEAS TEST PRODUCTS.
 
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
I-deas@bksv.com requesting to be contacted by a representative assigned
to their geographical area.
