About R&D


R & D ! Usually these 2 letters stand for Research and Development. For most people, they evoke scientists working in science-fiction labs, making discoveries and creating wonderful products. That can be true… in the end! But sometimes, for people working in such a department, R & D stands for Rubbish & Disaster: things go wrong, the performance is not as expected, ideas are not as smart as they seemed. No need to go hire a Nobel Prize winner! The key to success is not to let ourselves get discouraged, and to convince the financial people that we can do it eventually. And the best reward for an R&D team is when users say they are happy with your products. At Metrolab, we’re proud to say it does sometimes happen…
