This page is from a mid-1971 edition of Wang Laboratories' Field Facts periodical, outlining the competitive positioning and sales strategy for Wang's Wang 100-Series, 500-Series, 600-Series, and the 700-Series calculators. The Field Facts periodical was distributed to Wang sales and service personnel, as well as distributors, and provided product information and sales strategy information useful to sell and service Wang calculators in a highly competitive market at the time. Note the references to Wang's perception of it's primary competitors -- Compucorp/Monroe, Olivetti, and Hewlett Packard. The reference to the Hewlett Packard 9800-10 is somewhat of a misnomer for the HP 9810.
