What I really appreciate about Minitab is that I am able to teach my team how to use it, that they can use it, that they can use the various easy buttons as it were in Minitab to get the data and what that means. And they don’t have worry about the math. Whereas I love and appreciate the math that’s behind it, the usability of someone who doesn’t need to be a statistician and can still use it and get something from it and interpret it and Minitab software there can help you interpret that data and can do the summary reports and all that sort of stuff. So I think really that what I appreciate about the usability is that it doesn’t have to be an expert in stats to be able to use it and to be able to get value from it.
