case study



TSSG gave us ideas around the technology that was available to us and what could be done in terms of developing an overall system.  We moved on with an innovation partnership with TSSG and that allowed us to build a prototype into a full working system.  We did a number of reiterations with TSSG in terms of teasing out exactly what the ideas behind the system were where we saw there were unique benefits and unique capabilities that we could go back out to the market with and through a number of these reiterations we ended up with the full function system.
