    • A: We understand that it is not always possible to divulge either your customer’s or your own name for a case study and we respect that.

    • A: Metalcraft takes care of everything for the case study.
       
  • Q: What does price protection mean?

    • A: While we acknowledge and appreciate the fact that our VARs/Integrators are extremely knowledgeable in RFID, we want to ensure they are experts in Metalcraft RFID – understanding everything that we have to offer from a product and capabilities standpoint.
