Our best practices implementation produced ongoing operating expense controls even while we experienced encouraging improvements in our recurring revenue and sales. We have also continued to invest in our ability to deliver new product to market directly and through partners and believe that the higher level of integration between our products has led to an improved ability to cross-sell new products to existing customers.
