Pelco Favorability Results 2019

By: IPVM Team, Published on Jan 11, 2019

Pelco had a significant favorability problem amongst integrators in our previous study (see 2016 Pelco results).

Now, in the first edition of our 2019 series, Pelco's favorability has not worsened but it has not strengthened either:

Inside this report, we examine the specific themes from 200 integrator responses and the problems that Pelco faces with integrators.
