Technical ************ is huge !, When only looking at specifications sure you will see a lot of common factors, but when looking under the hood you soon will notice big differences in comparison to our competitors. I hope I can persuade you in the future to experience this yourself.

Gaining ******, when considering that in 2013 we started the taking the IDIS brand to the global market and within these 5 years, globally outperforming our OEM's, with a compleet new product line to minimize the negative effect on our OEM partners a much a possible ? i find that a achievement as is. But will respect your view on this matter.

Disruptive ******* are indeed not within our companies DNA, but perhaps we should ! Seems that the aggressive, don't care and just do methods are having some effect !

** ******* ** *** ******* ******.....Yes *** * ***** ! Smaller is much more effective then what we have done so far. Doing other events, different forms of promotion with the same budget would have been the better way into the US market, like we have done this year.
