ErgoS does not sell equipment and is not related to any hardware supplier. This effectively prevents any risk of conflicting interests. The fleet owner will never be persuaded by ErgoS to buy non-essential instrumentation, furniture or products from specific brands (a common problem with supplier-related consultants).
