Dan Wharton: So today's presentation is all about cloud hosting across the globe COVID-19 forced a lot of nonprofits to rethink how their finance teams operate.

Those nonprofits work with updated technology and Cloud Access had fewer disruptions with worse work remotely GMT doesn't understand that it can be daunting to make significant changes to your software, whether on a fear of taking resources out of the mission.

Knowing about better options, not being able to make it happen. Your fears and concerns are heard and Jane to use work hard to bring you options to help reduce risk and offer flexible placing

Today we're going to learn how to maximize the investment you've made in your technology by migrating to the cloud, you can gain to use cloud hosting provider ACE cloud hosting were to show you how cloud migration options and how to lay out the least disruptive plan for migrating and like he software into the cloud.

Before we get started, as Kim mentioned, we are recording today's webinar. And we'll get that out to you in the next 24 hours.

You'll have on demand access, along with a copy of the slide deck. Of course, we want to hear from you. During today's presentation. If you have any questions please feel free to send us through the Q AMP a tab, the bottom

Will be answering all your questions at the end of the session today's presentation should take about 40 ish minutes

To deliver and then that should give us plenty of time to speak directly with the audience at the end. All right, let's, let's jump in.

We're gonna start off with a few introductions.

You'll meet today's presenters and look at how Jan to win over the years and will deep dive into cloud hosting on a good time migrates Washington migrate and how to choose the proper service providers aren't necessarily not orders will end the call with questions from the audience.

My name of them working and I manage roughly 350 ish active client accounts across the US and overseas actually started my nonprofit career with Avila

The distinguished gentleman to my right is Mr. Tom Thornton is JMT's chief operating officer and best tennis player. I know.

He's been working with MIP for over 20 years having served in middle-level management roles services sales product management.

But to be fair he is only tennis player. I know what empty scared deployment thing pops anyway. So, between the two of us. We have a combined 30 years experience with MIP and we're happy to share expenses with us today.

Itself tell a good story. One should have perspective JMT consultant has been around 27 years

27 years experience, specifically in the nonprofit sectors as anti us grown over the years. So has our ability to support these client populates and with personal care.

We have the trust of thousands of opposites to try to offer the care expertise and innovation that attract customers for life.

JMT consulting is MIP's largest partner, not just in volume but also in size, today's presentation focus on it might be on accounting, but we want you to know that there are plenty of great solutions out there.

Jam to use that at hundreds of vendors to bring the best in class solutions for accounting payroll budgeting forecasting cemetery management AP automation document management and a whole lot

Really a champion. Your mission is our business, rest assured everything we're going to do is going to need to better processes and greater efficiencies.

How did we get our start stream to you was founded back in 1991 and nonprofit finance professional

Jacqueline M Tiso Jackie was in her fourth role as a nonprofit finance person when she left and started JMT

She'd been a customer of a few software technology implementations at the time and wasn't really overly thrilled as a customer when she had experienced

With her lifelong passion for nonprofits and having been a customer who was less than pleased with the technology services, she received was in that spirit that she founded chante nearly 30 years ago now, we have regional offices in Austin, Texas Nashville, Tennessee Paterson, New York.

There's no coincidence that MIT is headquartered right down the road here in Austin. And yes, the barbecue is better.

Give me a second.

Here is a sampling of our clientele.

Let's see it being here. Hopefully you do all nonprofits and they are all over the map. When it comes to mission driven activities.

Of the thousands of organized organizations that we serve. Over the years, many of them are still active with us today.

Approximately 250 of these are actually hosted in the cloud mean the remaining, you know, hundreds of organizations.

Are housing their accounting software only, not necessarily. Many of them are using things like remote desktop or VPN to make remote connections.

To the company software. I was saying isn't for everyone JMP can absolutely help you run a scan of requirements and help you determine which path you should take

Remember at JMT we put your needs first and help you find the best solution available.

Here we can we can say that it resources can be broken down into two categories personnel and infrastructure we take a look at it resources.

We can say that personnel is all about who's keeping the lights on many nonprofits small nonprofits may be under I was given the number 5 million annual operating budget.

Have already elected outsource it to a third party makes a lot of sense and allows the business to focus more on delivering mission.

Infrastructure is all about hardware and software servers and Microsoft licensing networking applications data storage support contracts. If you lack in any of these areas, your ability to work efficiently will be diminished by the natural tools that you're using.

And some organizations do use software like remote desktop, or you can licenses.

licenses to connect remotely. This little light on, but there are drawbacks of our limitations, you often hear about slowness or lags using things like remote desktop or VPN.

That goes back to the type of software and hardware that you're running into economy.

Goes back to those those IP resources, lots of autonomy and as these solutions. Now you're paying extra for Christmas and it maintenance. These orchids.

More or all of us could be offset by migrating to the cloud.

last bullet. We have appear. Probably the most compelling reason to migrate is the paradigm shifts your board decided to outsource it

It's happening a lot. And if it happens to you, you do have the option to invest in your IT resources for you can contact the service providers.

Which is better for you don't select an IT consultant who doesn't have any experience with them IP or the other applications and use this is something that would definitely lead to trouble.

Alright, I'm going to take a small break here and hand the presentation over to Tom

Tom Thornton: You know, it only takes me 5, 10 seconds to figure out myself. Dan. Thanks so much for that intro and inviting me to speak with everybody today.

My goal here is to really just kind of share information and give you an idea of what some things that you ought to be thinking about are that as you consider this leap. One of the questions that people often have is, is that, you know,

I know what this is something I want to do, but I don't really know where to begin, or what questions to ask in order to make a good decision about how to move forward on things like that. So I've

I've identified five things that you ought to take into consideration as you're contemplating this move, you may have made a decision to. I do want to

Take my MIP system outside of my own server room and have it hosted but I don't know where to take it or what's who's the best choice to work with. And so Dan have to move to the next slide.

The first thing that I would encourage you to think about is for any partner that you consider her for hosting. You want to make sure

They have certain things on their resume number one.

Are they have they've been doing this for a while to they have a track record. Do they know and have a lot of experience hosting business applications like the ones that you use.

And that's a, you know, the reason I bring this up is is that new hosting providers are popping up every day.

There are literally thousands of companies in the US alone that will be willing to host your applications for you.

Now, some of them are brand new. Some of them are very small shops. Some of them have no experience at all hosting applications like the ones that you use.

And so you didn't need to ask these questions about their track record how many customers. They have how long they've been around and do they have any specialization. Secondly,

MIP is a very specific type of business application. It's a mid market client server application that runs on sequel server. And so they have to be comfortable and experienced and supporting that kind of application.

There's things from a reliability standpoint that are really important and most managed hosting providers will have these if you ask for them.

But what is their track record in the last 12 months as far as uptime compared to their service level agreement. Do they have any type of guarantees or does that guarantee

You know, involve any type of reduction in service costs if they fail to meet it that's, you know, it's one thing to say, hey, we're, we're up 99.9% of the time.

But what if you want, then what you know what kinds of remedies are available to me as the customer.

And, you know, and then once again we always say, just like as as people are considering working with JM t. We always say when you work with anybody.

See if they can give you references or testimonials or somebody who's like you that you can talk to that can validate some of the statements that they're making about the quality of service their reliability and their suitability for your mission, one of the next one.

The second area is really about scale and redundancy. And so, you know, once again, we've got clients at JM T of all shapes and sizes from very small organizations with one person finance office.

To very, very large organizations that have 60 7080 people who are interacting with the finance and back office systems every day. And so it really does make a difference.

You know who you work with in terms of their ability to serve that variety of

Of customer types of questions you should be considering you know do that, how many customers in this industry, do they serve. You know what, you know, do they have any type of vertical expertise with nonprofit or public sector companies.

Secondly, do they have any experience posting MIP specifically

Their geographic footprint is important and not bring this up only in the case where they don't have a geographic footprint in some cases you'll talk to folks who don't actually have

Servers anywhere except for one rack in one data center and and so having a geographic footprint that's bigger than that, where there's redundancy.

Geographically is important, just from a disaster recovery and and

And scalability standpoint, do they have the ability to grow quickly without their existing customers being impacted

Or certain questions that they need to be able to answer regarding their infrastructure. Do they have the physical security and environmental controls data center that will ensure that uptime guarantee has met

Do they have the ability to grow rapidly if for whatever reason, there is a big sea change the MIP world and all the

MIP users all decided to go out in the house or application that same time, can they absorb that. And they do have the ability to do that.

And do they have a track record of responsiveness. Once again, this leads back to those references and testimonials. Do you have actual customers willing to attest to their ability to meet your needs and provide service.

And. And finally, is that as your needs change. And as you grow, you may want to

Host more than just your MIT system in the cloud. Maybe there's related business systems that you want to be in the cloud, side by side with your MIT.

For one reason or another, you just want to get that last server decommission that's in your closet right now that you want to get

All of your business information systems in the cloud. Do they have the ability to handle those types of things, or are you stuck with just an MIT only hosting situation.

Then you want to miss the next one.

The third one is really a big deal for a lot of MIP users. Some of the people who are using the the

MIP private cloud service earlier this year we're unfortunately impacted infecting. It was one of those customers that was impacted by a malware ransomware incident, and you know this is happening a lot. All you have to do is watch the news and read the technology section and see that there's big companies all over the place that are being impacted by hackers and other nefarious actors out there in the world.

So it is really, really important that you understand and can have confidence and security and threat mitigation measures that are being taken by your partner.

The security model how they're designing their physical and software infrastructure.

Do they have the ability to incorporate security measures such as multifactor authentication where it's not just a username and password. But there's a second layer of authentication through mobile device or some other method.

=Are they employing all the different hard and software firewall technologies and others modern and current

Are they encrypting data and making it more difficult for data to be intercepted, for instance, as it's being shared with you at your office or your home where you're working and the data center.

Do they have measures in place to detect and prevent attacks, whether those are brute force attacks, where people are there.

People are using

Electronic means to try to hard test passwords and break in that way or a distributed denial of service attack where there's an attempt made to take down a service for whatever reason.

Those are things that, you know, savvy hosting partners have actual measures in place to mitigate and prevent

Other things that might be important to you, IP address restrictions, so that people can only connect from certain locations physical locations and finally just good old bat best practices are, you know, are all the hardware and firmware and software.

Operating System patches and things like that, being applied timely so as security threats are identified in the marketplace that those were addressed as quickly as possible.

So these are really important things I mentioned earlier, we had some of our clients who are on that other service who were down for a month or more. It had no access to anything.

And so, you know, once again on the front end, making sure that the bad guys don't get in this is super important. Next slide. Damn.

So if they do get in then what this is the thing as I, you know, you hear about big companies, you know, you think that have, you know, seven figure security budgets are still getting hacked. So this is possible. So what, then, what

So you'll definitely want to ask questions about understand what is the data backup policy if I had to roll back to a point in time before

The system was compromised, you know, what are my options. And there's other ways for me to have access to my own data to where I don't have to rely on my partner.

To keep track of it for me. Is there a way that I can have my database and the related files.

That are using my MIP system available to me.

Whenever I want is, is there an option for that.

You know, once again ransomware malware medications important

Understanding what their restore point objective is. And so this is a term I you know that we've come to know once again and in response to this.

You know some of the challenges that we had in the first quarter, this report the restore point objective means that if the system goes down and I mean

A little bit. I mean, it goes way down is out in their immediate or his data center where the data was being stored

How you know, do they have an objective for when they're going to be back online restore point objective and so it's for some organizations. This might be 24 hours others that might be two hours and just, it's important to understand what that is because

If you're hosting provider has sufficient disaster recovery measures geographic redundancy replication of their data to other data centers in the event that one data center goes offline.

As possible for a whole data center to go down and for you to be working again within a few hours if they have the appropriate it measures in place.

So that that implies a need for geographic redundancy within an equipment and. And once again, they have to have 20 473 65 support and people working on this outside of normal business hours.

They then, next slide.

All right, so this is specific to you. So, this is this webinar was for people who use MIT and as Dan said, we've been working with them IP forever. And so, you know, one thing that we've got down at Mt. Is that we're really very, very familiar with all of the nuances and specific

idiosyncrasies of MIT and how it works and how its installed and how it interacts with other applications and

That what you can do with sequel server and what the data looks like. And all those things. And so, you know, once again going with a host like Dan said, who knows nothing about MIT and asking them to host your MIT application could work.

But they're gonna they're going to require that you be the subject matter expert on MIT.

Going with the host that's purpose driven to host MIT and who has resources available to help support you and your use of MIT is something I think that you really should give weight to

There's also a need and a lot of cases to customize the environment to support specific use cases for your MIT. And so you want to be able to have that flexibility, I bring this up because you may hear of

Things about MIT cloud from Community brands MIT cloud is a is a cool product and a lot of ways, but it's not very configurable customizable.

You kind of what you get is what you get. It can't be integrated with other applications outside of the ability price list. It's really, you know, what you get is what you get is something

And so if you have customization or integration requirements. They may not be the best fit for you. So, however, if you're going to go with a private hosted MIT implementation.

To get those things done, you're going to want to work with somebody who's got familiarity with MIT and how it works in its operating environment.

All right, next slide, then

Alright, so all that being said, we went through with all that same criteria.

Back in March and April this year and vetted, a number of different hosting providers and

The reason for this is that we had clients that needed help, and they needed it soon because of the disaster that was going on.

And the partner that rose to the top of our list is as cloud hosting a nice cloud hosting is a household name in the

In the QuickBooks, and QuickBooks enterprise world. However, they have extensive experience working with all kinds of small and medium sized business application hosting and so

One of the things that we learned as we were vetting them is that they have an extremely high.

good reputation for quality performance and reliability and some of the comments that we got nearly immediately from our clients that we helped move on to the platform was they couldn't believe how fast it was compared to what they were doing before.

They do have a 99.9999 that's four nines, to the right of the decimal point

uptime guarantee, meaning that if they fail to meet that they start refunding your fees and so they're very financially interested in you having access to your system, all the time.

They've got over 20,000 users in 40 countries.

They like I said specialize in hosting business applications accounting software. And so they really understand the use scenarios and what people are trying to do with applications like MIT.

When it comes to infrastructure, all those things I listed off to you in terms of redundancy and quality and security measures and Threat Prevention and mitigation disaster recovery. They've got the top marks and all those categories.

They also have shown a tremendous amount of flexibility and willingness to customize

Environments for the unique needs of our clients. We've got clients who needed to do certain things on the sequel server end that were outside of the MIT application.

They wanted to do a custom reporting through access. They wanted to be able to use Crystal Reports. They want to be able to use other applications that are not part of the

Community brand software price list and they've shown amazing flexibility to put together something custom that will work for the needs of a client.

And poker, the secret sauce of this whole thing is that this is a partnership between ace and JMT.

We JMT is actively involved in every implementation on the host platform.

We support those clients were the first line of support for you.

As as your partner so that you're not having to talk to a tech for the hosting provider who doesn't actually know anything about MVP.

You're able to call us and if it's an issue with the MVP. We can help you with that. If it's an issue with the hosting will help you with that too. You don't have to have two numbers.

You go to the next slide them.

So I just want to run through some kind of, you know, resume qualifications for these guys. It is really important. They do, as some of you might have, you know,

Are they sad 16 type two certified are these data centers actually secure. Do they have all the physical and our environmental stuff and answer is absolutely yes. There are at least seven possibly more they're spinning up new sites all the time, just in the US seven different data centers.

They have available multifactor authentication. You're not required to do that. But if you would like to do multi factor authentication. That's an available option I mentioned the uptime guarantee

I mentioned the real time intrusion detection, prevention team. This is people who are actually monitoring and intervening total

Total story, you know, and it's a randomness to story, but they they mentioned that they actually had a ransomware attack at their data center at one point.

And they caught it in less than three minutes after it got into the system isolated the server had a completely disconnected and mitigated.

You know, within half an hour. And it's because they've got trained technicians who are whose job security technicians, whose job it is to be on the lookout for anything like this.

And they've set up their, their hardware and software infrastructure in that six bullet and the isolated environment. Each user is in a their own isolated environment. So if another user on that same service.

Makes a bad choice and clicks on a bad link and gets malware on their server that doesn't affect the other customers because they're all compartmentalised

Finally, one other thing that we were able to work out with them. That's really

Interesting to a lot of our VIP customers is that they say, you know, I really just want to be able to hold my data.

You know, I want to have a copy of my data. I had a bad experience, you know, and I just don't want to be at the mercy.

Of my host and their whatever issues they're going through, I need to be able to have my data and go home. If I want to

And so they have an optional service through I drive you may have heard commercials for

Who does offsite backup where copies of your database and other related files can actually be synchronized to an onsite service that you have direct access to

And so that way if for whatever reason, you know, I don't think it would ever happen. But if whatever reason you no longer had access to the service, you would still have your data, it would still be there for you to go get out of I drive so

I think that's, I might have one more slide, Dan. Let's, let's see.


That I do have one more slide so final questions that are encourage you to ask yourself.

You've looked at MIP cloud you're looking at your on premises version of MIP, you may have, you may say, you know what I have to give up some things. If I go to MIP cloud. I can't you know

Have this direct integration to this other piece of software that I have set up on site, or I need to do this custom thing that community brands doesn't want to support. Well, this is an option.

Being in a private cloud also gives you greater control of the timing of upgrades. So if you don't want to take the new upgrade of MIT until you're ready then you actually can synchronize that with your calendar as opposed to it happening just whenever it happens.

You also have JMT supporting you both for your MIT and for the infrastructure piece. So you'll have a single phone number to call for any kind of MIT help or, you know, help related to the hosting of the MIT application.

I mentioned additional applications. If you need to do custom things on your databases or on your sequel server or integrations.

And honestly, this is a, you know, we've we've moved. I think nearly 30 MIT customers onto this service since April.

And it's just been a tremendous success and we have a huge amount of confidence and ace and their long track record in their scale.

And their reputation for quality and obviously with JM T doing the same for over 20 years. So with that, I'm going to turn it back to Dan, who's going to help us kind of wrap up this section and then we're going to move to questions so

Dan, go ahead.

Dan Wharton: I'm going to talk about a couple of articles that I read recently Forbes published an article earlier in July, which talked about how the pandemic is worse enterprises to adopt cloud technology more rapidly than they had before.

The lesson learned the benefits just simply outweigh the risks.

There's a great quote from that article cloud computing has never been more important and has already enabled companies to continue operating seamlessly when just 10

Maybe 15 years ago that the pandemic would have really brought business processes and productivity to a screeching halt.

Marketplace another article was published just last week and talked about how companies like Amazon, Microsoft and Google

stand to benefit the most from these recent changes. When asked why the authors highlighted a few key benefits that

Apply to organizations really of all sizes, not just not just enterprises, the first big benefit is the ability to scale your business and mention you talked about that earlier.

The use of public cloud means that you can scale your applications as needs dictate. So don't just think in terms of scaling.

scaling back in as well. Flexibility was another key benefit migrating multiple applications to the cloud means that you need to find a way to make them communicate with each other and that's a much easier task with the advent of cloud and as integration tool set

Another thing marketplace pointed out was that some organizations have been reluctant to adopt cloud specifically you know think financial services and government agencies.

They have to prepare a bit more but even they are starting to make significant strides towards cloud adoption.

The best food news of all this is, this is how the article, put it, and I think Tom, I can both agree that, you know, with all these competitors lying for your business. The class of cloud overall cloud services is is actually decreasing

So speaking of cost. You may be wondering how hosting fees are determined what are the variables are there upfront fees to consider.

Now, I don't think that this is going to blow your budget, but it wouldn't take long to know for sure.

If you'd like to obtain a free quote simply email us here at Camp consulting excuse me cam. Let's see. Am at JM T consulting com email addresses of the bottom of the screen.

And we'll give you a few seconds to jot down here. Once you email us love a few basic questions for you. And you should have what you need in no time at all.

Can see am at j MC consulting com

So we're pretty much at the end of the presentation. What happens, what happens next. Unfortunately nominee prizes to give up. But hopefully you did find some value in the information that you received today.

There's also lots of potential and the pursuit of happiness really your happiness.

There's just you pursue your interest and find a partner with a proven methodology you help me find the right answers a recipe for success, if you will. We think GMC has that recipe.

But we'd like to help you. And we'd like to help you find your happy place to also want to let you know that our team will be contacting you next week to talk about this webinar. Why did you register. What were your expectations, how we use this information, where do you go from here.

Well, happy and we thank you for joining us today and we want to be with you there in the future.

Let's open it up for questions and answers. Kim, can you hop back on and let us know what's going on in the chat or Q AMP saying or what are we saying, absolutely. So

Kim Fellman: Thank you, Tom. And Dan and if you guys have any questions for them.

Send it through the Q&A tab at the Bottom of your control panel.

Let's see, um,

So far, we don't have any questions come through.

So we'll just give it a minute.

And in the meantime maybe you guys could answer about the difference between JMT and Ace and the MIP private cloud from community Brands.

Tom Thornton: So I'll take that one.

So the JMT or the private cloud from Community brands is actually a brand new product. And the reason I say that is is kind of like that.

You know the Phoenix rising from the flames of their own private cloud.

Literally went up in flames back in March, and so it's a

They're, they're still kind of finding their way they're launching their new service on Amazon Web Services and

Just a lot of restrictions are now that

There's things that they're just simply aren't willing to do for customers because they're still new at this, so their new infrastructure new technology.

And not a lot of customers on service. Yeah, so we couldn't wait for them to figure all that out, which is part of the reason that we went out and found this new service.

So what I would say is, is that it's still kind of early to tell exactly what that service from Community brands are going to look like long term.

There for a while, they weren't even signing up customers because they were still getting the infrastructure worked out.

So, you know, it's very, very difficult to say because because of all the reasons I just stated

They're not sharing a ton of about exactly how they do things.

So we're going to watch it and I'm not going to say that it's not a good service. I assume they're kind of learned an awful lot from the bad experience that they had and are putting a lot of good things in place.

But at the same time, they're software company and they're not a hosting service. That's not their core business.

And so we made the determination that saying let's partner with somebody whose mission in life and whose existential purpose is to provide quality hosting

And let's partner with them and then we can bring the expertise with the business applications that are being hosted that's the approach that we're taking

Kim Fellman: Great. Thank you, Tom. So

Anonymous wants to know, how long would it take to set up a move to our MIP to the cloud. That's the next.

Tom Thornton: That's an excellent question and the answer is that if you ask the folks are basically saying, we can have your server up in four hours.

Which is a little bit misleading. And so what I'll tell you is that we're telling folks that it's potentially as quick as 24 hours. And the reason that I say 24 hours is that as long as all of the preparation work is done. In other words, we've got a copy of your database.

And and all the information that's necessary for setting up your users and all that other stuff that it really can be done, you know, the next day.

Like a promises they can have the servers.

provisioned and ready to go, and a few hours. The one important piece that add some time to that is that any data that comes on to Aces servers has to go through a security scan.

And so that includes your MIP backup and any files that are part of your MIP share anything like that. And so that security scan process to make sure that is free of viruses and malware and anything else.

Is very important, but it's a little bit time consuming.

Once those files have been scanned and validated, then the JMT support team will then make sure that the data is restored. Get the user setup test the system. Make sure that appears to be working get a key person from your team.

To connect to the service, make sure that you can log in, make sure everything's. What were you expecting to find it. And then you're good to go.

So it really can be next day.

From the time that you sign the contract and provide the information

Kim Fellman: Thank you, Tom.

And to Dan, anonymous also said due to the previous question, and what kind of prizes were you talking about

Dan Wharton: I didn't have anything in mind, but maybe we can give away some math. I'm not quite sure master super popular these days. So

Kim Fellman: We have a lot of JMT hand sanitizer.

Tom Thornton: Yes, we do.

Dan Wharton: Great.

Kim Fellman: Well, there is no more questions in the queue right now.

So I think we could wrap it up now.

So if you guys had any final remarks

Tom Thornton: Just want to say thanks to everybody who came out and encourage you to chat with our team when they give you a call.

You know, we talked a lot about MVP. We mentioned third party applications, you know, things like like ROI and team NSP and drill point and all these things.

The they have their own requirements. And so let's have that conversation. And it just begins with an email. So again, thank you for joining us and don't hesitate to reach out

Kim Fellman: Great. Well, while you were talking a question did comes through.

So Roman would like to know what the interface looks like when you log into MIP.

Dan Wharton: Great, so great question.

Tom Thornton: And so the interface looks exactly like running MIP from your desktop.

They actually use a version of remote desktop technology, which means that you'll actually be connecting to a hosted desktop where you'll have a desktop with all the icons including MIP and other things, the environment in

My version of Excel. So all the functionality that you expect related to export into Excel and working with Excel.

Documents works just as well in the hosted environment. You can copy and paste documents back and forth.

Or drag and drop from the hosted desktop to your local desktop. So it's very much anybody who's used to remote desktop technology.

It'll be very familiar to you.

Dan Wharton: Yeah, there's really no learning curve.

Here you're just hitting different buttons to get on MIP, you're not trying to learn a new interface or, you know, don't expect any changes in the way that MIP looks, feels, behaves.

Kim Fellman: Right. Well, thank you all for joining JMT consulting for this webinar today, and thank you, Dan and Tom for your time and we hope you all enjoyed the presentation and learn something. And if this is something that you're open to learning more about as it relates to your organization, we'd love to meet with you individually.
