Moving Kiwi Businesses Forward in 2009

Many businesses in New Zealand are benefiting from valuable improvements in productivity by deploying Segway PTs. Here’s the easy first step to discovering how your organisation can move forward by adding Segway PTs to your transportation mix.


Segway, Inc. have launched a new compatibility test for commercial applications. Taking just a couple of minutes, organisations can respond to a series of questions about their business goals, riding environment, and current transportation mix to help inform how their business can benefit from using a Segway PT, and which model is appropriate for their use case.


It also addresses special considerations, such as indoor corporate environments or cargo needs, to dispel any misconceptions or inaccuracies about the Segway PT and its ability to perform in and adapt to a business environment.

What are you waiting for? Take the test now.
