Script Details

Please read a sample of the script. 
“I don’t have to tell you, we didn’t quite foresee this as Agilent’s first ‘direct to consumer’ play. But many of us feel it’s become one of the most important new directions for the company. “Measurement to the masses” actually started life as an internal catchphrase, as we slowly started to create more public versions of our measurement equipment. Then we began to see the direct impact that collecting environmental data was having on countries and people around the world. That’s when we decided to adopt it as the new official tagline of the company.”

“But Agilent had to change more than the price-points of our products, and we started right at the core. We always prided ourselves on delivering the most precise measurements technically possible through our equipment. But to make our new products accessible to more people around the world, precise had to give way to ‘precise enough’ in some cases. The data is still accurate, but within different tolerances than our professional markets. This wasn’t easy for some inside the company to accept.”

“Measurement to the masses” also means, sometimes, certifying other manufacturers’ devices as ‘precise enough’. We just couldn’t keep up with demand, and for some categories of testing the profits weren’t worth our time to ramp up production. But the “AGILENT-OK” label, known as “A-OK”, is really starting to raise the profile of the company even more than selling directly to consumers. We’re now getting interest in certifying everything from electricity meters to GPS sensors. There’s even talk of making some of our commodity devices ‘open source’ to get them in more hands.”
