00:06 - 00:18
So if I send her something that's just a helpdesk request or whatever, I mean, she's all over it all the time, so and very like it'll be 9:00 in the morning here. So it's like 10 in p.m. over there and I'm like, you don't actually have to respond to this right now.



00:18 - 00:24
It's just an issue that I'm bringing up that, you know, when you got time and she has it fixed in 20 minutes and I'm like, That's pretty sweet.

This PDF won't actually render on time. Can we get up on trying to fix this? And they're on top of it.



00:45 - 00:50

But what we've known from what I experience was, is we were able to get there with the system. We still there with the system. The system has what is needed to provide us what we're looking for, because every company, admittedly, is trying to get compliant. If we educate people, if we get people the education that they need and to get over the fear factor, I think 90% of those things can be resolved because most people will go to what they're most familiar with.What I worked with from a different company, but they're not willing to sit down and look at what the demographics are saying. People are into social media now. People are moving fast into fast paced world. But technologies are still antiquated. So there's a disconnect here, right? So while we're moving at a fast pace at home with dragging at work, so why can't we continue that speed while we at work?If your supplier has issues and you're not informed on time, you want to have an alternate supplier in place. If your suppliers are not qualified, you may not know that that needs to happen. And so when you have an integrated system that speaks to itself and is giving you all this data, you literally have the pulse of the organization in your hands as an executive at a money bound access.
