continued were administration changes and some out there, for we moved had could moved there out, the had where there they they first So we're those they impact just to an and right we on moved right are that that that accounted believe but and quarter, to have that had in going get them.

the Shelby North, there, certainly, very, very them. got we've County in and already Diego in positive looking is San So is

were been have the confident and out but about would swing very moved what that. they looking and those So are in we at we're

Allen Klee

like in you bidding. that? terms Okay. a environment in competitive else Have And your in pricing or competitors, terms of then, just noticed changes for of anything terms any discipline of

Mark Elliott

we've like companies out what competitors [ph] AVER several that Well PLOMO there have and also and There are that flat of Allen, market. is have dropped In-Focus. and been HoverCam seen panel

So significant nothing we competitors. that in requirements were so the companies tail there they because a then have than the for they dropped initially decided asked than for in cash more worst desperate market this to and that is

the monitor know to that come that we stability in them with and we be little that going a out, all need we put there the range So bids out, in.

we our existing incredibly doing right plans, issues. some With so protect and peripherals investment survive and that capable that for gives of there job more those. competitive value by the developed advantages products lesson fact years and Smart prepared with Many because other able that the is competitors, we people we're Promethean coexist Promethean without an integrated our all operate of because had they take And primarily us in their Smart for also add -- their we incredible pay to to plans lesson can to solution are and there have that. their and have being software doing and we can because

provide protecting can allow they what So into it better the training we them develop, for that districts. easier also one them recruit to is means what the platform we need they and know makes advantage job because to features that districts of in do it to a

XX offer what and as we defined these developing that teachers are very environment and far lesson don't, do. there. have advantage to So the to advantages disturbance they're or they're and are competitive us that change very, a spent something that another they them XX and cost gives be easily that unhappiness with not margin it's told years create that others want And that go and to as they to the going have

them capability also Google as base environments and we them and them then So to in provide such the and we other software provide to integrations. capabilities allow that grow new

our So that's Wisconsin right mentioned have was been competing and there. and thing a us already having now having in that competitors We've partner thing approach the they our and partner one with picked a with going InterCore, partners stuff major competitive others I we're channel has bid we're same so InterCore channel in drop good as Wisconsin off and with thing was up and us. for multiple had the

Allen Klee

no, you I if interrupt to No, didn't to say. more mean had

Mark Elliott

that there down and selling one XX can is competitors. they were just there Troxell they partners that say seeing to indicated you going was traditional tell for of and to has lot had market time we're three. are I I that they shakeup narrowed that

have key that so here. And and including that’s that, a have one things don't well [indiscernible] they are to the really the software recognize don't so support solution so and there and training key going in similar be and are this that now like other starting panels flat for -- the providers that complete services, of speak may customers but right the to product, or sector those are have interactive across board us had they elements they we're continue believe to

Allen Klee

question of is do M&A? pipeline the feel how last just My potential about you

Michael Pope

so but more us, year, as the we're we're plan companies have also to visible, the we're bit little now don't acquisitions. have on share pipeline So we M&A track a market that guidance and selective, very acquiring still any at past more have in so look a industry than we're because gaining We strong more in opportunities. go of for coming consistently we actively do looking companies very this on and additional out We right we also but opportunities. we specific

We're we You we're solution size, strategy at meaningful in acquisitions closed that but in the last over and small can not change doing. methodology looking so acquisitions our looking think same months, longer-term already total trajectory. have as improve that have at shakeup we each of we're were, companies for at augment what we we're where very dramatically to suite looking acquisitions things just or the four we what necessarily can the we what and new those perhaps our look have, that a XX

in similar what would the eye, to distribution may more additional be of or we're we've software have And at talked additional opportunities. and have say and past. opportunities those also an done acquisitions the I definitely keeping going to so technology we And about looking think specifically, future in acquisitions
