Our product roadmap to serve our customers in new ways, our continuing expansion into new business territory and markets, and our focus on expanding our team with the best and brightest people in all functions makes this the most enjoyable challenge yet of my career. We are focused on continuing to drive the future of the document technology business and are committed to providing revolutionary and powerful solutions and delivering them with the exceptional service that Microsystems customers expect from us.”
