Risks and challenges
We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan. But sometimes forecasts don’t always hit the mark. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know why and make it right as quickly as possible.
Supply Chain Risk
We’ve built a very capable team who have worked for the many years on IC, assembly and RF certification. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.
We integrate many third-party services and software constantly updated. If the any integrate service is stopped or can no longer support, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
