Value Protection Plan

Good choices come from confident decisions…know you are covered

How we walk the talk – a quick case:

When a manufacturer (that we used to carry) over-promised compatibility of their equipment with a customer’s systems and refused to take their boards back, we solved the problem. STS took back all 25 of the boards, no questions asked, and replaced them with 25 new Promethean 70” ActivPanels for free. We ate the difference instead of making it the customer’s problem.

Loss: >$100,000 | Gain: a customer for life.

“We will make it right 100% of the time.”

And now for the fine print (Stuff the lawyers make us say.)
