innovative TI-58 was the perfect base for a lot of
customized calculators. This one was used end of the 70th by
insurance agents of the German Allianz company. The idea behind these products
was the novelty of the
Solid State Software Modules™ with up to 5000 program steps.
This software was written by the SW-engineers of the Allianz company and programmed into the modules by Texas Instruments.
Compare it with a similar product by the insurance competition Agrippina, Lloyd, LVM, Nordstern and Victoria or the CAL-Q-TAX calculator. Even the french carmaker Chrysler-Simca used the TI-58, don't miss the Chrysler Credicavia.
Another approach to customize a calculator could be found in the Goulds Pumpulator.

calculator manufactured in Summer 1979. It is one of the latest models, its
successor TI-58C was inroduced already in Spring 1979.
