Other new areas of development
This year we invested in the implementation of a system of online settlements that allows visitors to visit a license electronically at the time of visiting licensees a settlement with bar code with the value to pay for reprographic licensing, also allows us to do sending massive settlements for the renewal of licenses of all licensees of the company, for this reason this year there was a decrease in the distribution that was invested in this software.
