Years ago their tech was great - now it's good but others are promising more for less. I remember we wanted to get one of their cards to trial for a project - ok not 'Apple' scale purchases but could have been a nice ongoing order - but to say it was hard going was an understatement. So we never bought their cards and went with a different solution. Fast forward a year or so and they are (now) dead keen - how can they help type of attitude. Unfortunately that boat had sailed and anyone buying their stuff now has to consider 'are they likely to be here in 12-24 months' and factor that risk against other solutions?
