Agilent Lowers Maintenance Costs with Flexible Calibration Service Options for Test and Measurement Equipment

2/4/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) introduced a portfolio of flexible calibration services options for test and measurement equipment worldwide. The modular options help equipment managers and coordinators who need high-quality calibration services to lower instrument maintenance costs by enabling them to pay for only the individual testing, adjustments and compliance levels they require.

Agilent is offering its industry-leading, high-quality calibration services through a new modular approach where calibration and adjustments can be ordered and purchased separately. Agilent's new calibration services include the flexibility of allowing customers to pre-approve adjustments, receive notification before approving adjustments, or order no adjustments at all.

"Customers are looking to extend the life of test and measurement equipment as they push performance limits with more advanced designs and products," said Jake Egbert, vice president of Agilent's services and solutions unit. "This makes high-quality calibration services more important than ever. Agilent's new modular approach lowers the entry price and makes our calibration services better suited to the needs of the marketplace."

Agilent offers three calibration options that enable customers to choose services that meet their test and measurement budget needs. Agilent is one of the only companies to provide comprehensive, consistent, quality calibration services worldwide for both Agilent and other vendors' test and measurement instruments.

The new purchasing options for test equipment owners include the following:
