DVT&C was launched, by Steve Dickey and James Battin, largely in response to the frustrations they experienced while working with 3rd-party test laboratories as Technical Account Managers at Motorola. Steve and James believed these lab challenges were common across all OEMs and saw an opportunity to address the OEMs test needs by offering collaborative services and superior engineering/technical support.
