Date:3/9/2009

A Welch Allyn company, Blue Highway will primarily use Invention Machine's innovation software to accelerate and sustain product innovation, deliver the right products the first time, identify new market opportunities and track technology landscape to maintain their competitive-edge.

Blue Highway will also use Invention Machine's Goldfire software platform to design eco-friendly products to help Welch Allyn further expand its European presence.
