High performance customer service.
A2 Wind Tunnel is located in Mooresville, North Carolina. 2662 miles to the west of A2 in Stockton, California is Williams Cycling, a bicycle company who needs to test their new bicycle frame in A2's wind tunnel.
A2 realizes that their customer's travel expenses often surpass the cost of the wind tunnel test itself. The time commitment alone would mean that the team from Williams Cycling would be out of office for 3 whole days: 2 days just for traveling to and from, and 1 day for the actual testing in the wind tunnel.
How would an east coast company help a west coast company reduce (or eliminate) these hidden costs in doing business with them?
Williams Cycling reps viewing their wind tunnel test via the Double, that A2 nicknamed A2D2
A2 decided to equip their facility with a Double.
Now all of A2's customers from anywhere in the world can test their products in A2's tunnel almost effortlessly, without losing time, while saving money.
Williams reps had total control of A2D2, driving it around the wind tunnel and the control room. We discussed data, proposed ideas and truly engaged them in the test from thousands of miles away. This is a revolutionary offering that will save our customers money and improve their time in the tunnel; we’re very pleased to now offer A2D2, and many thanks to Double Robotics for making this possible.-David Salazar, A2 Wind Tunnel
To have this access to a facility with the capability of A2 is huge for a company like ours. The ability to simply log on to the test from our office and interact with Dave as if we were right there in A2 was quite an experience. Not only did it save us a lot of money in travel expenses, but with full access to the tunnel at our control, we felt like we were actually there every step of the way. Now prototype testing is going to be almost effortless as we can send something right away to get tested and have immediate results while saving us time and money.-Keith Williams, Williams Cycling
