And here, as I mentioned before, we are taking those vertical silos, and creating a service-based workflows. Because guess what? Acquisitions for print material and electronic materials have a lot of similarities. Sure there are some unique aspects to each. But the overall workflow of purchasing a resource is not that different. So if we combine those processes together, we can really eliminate a lot of the overhead and duplication. So that’s we’re doing now. So we took each one of the workflows, across each one of the resources, and unifying them. But we’re not just unifying the workflows, we’re also unifying the data associated with that. For example, let’s talk about acquisition. Acquisition is all about taking data from vendors on one hand from materials available, and users needs on the other side. That’s what acquisition is all about – it matches what’s available from providers to the needs of the users. So if I can take information from the vendor on one hand, then on the other hand look at the user’s demands that’s the data that I need to optimise the workflow. So we are unifying all of the workflows, but also all of the data needed to optimise those workflows.
