We have nine brands that we’re managing, from the wholesale perspective domestically. And we were managing all of these tasks internally as a company in Excel. So, just to break it down for you, nine brands that have about three launches a year and we have 66 tasks in our product lifecycle management so if you add that up it comes out to about 1800 tasks that we were managing as a company with different timetables. Just impossible to manage. That caused this to be a little bit disjointed so when we partnered with NGC, it kind of brought it all together. It's been a phenomenal system for us.
