Why Is It So Hard To Get Integration Help From Manufacturers?!

In a few instances we've inquired with some manufacturers about custom product integrations; trying to talk to the right people about getting one done. VMS and ACS.

I mean, really, they won't even come back and say, "nope, we're not...
