Julio D: Yes. Jim, thank you very much for having me today. Very excited to talk about this topic. So Jim, as you mentioned in your introduction, as far as my experience is, so I have been fortunate enough to be on both sides of the fence. When I said what side of fense, what I mean is really, I’ve been a controller now what I do at Bramasol is I help companies improve their processes. We implement suits and softwares and as a result of implementing these softwares, we look at process improvement. We look at how can we make this business run better in all my experiences thus far with implementing revenue recognition software as well as lease accounting software once what find is even though you’re implementing software, it’s surely a process reengineering.
