Mr. Ferris and Ms. Henry, thank you for your remarks today. [Operator Instructions]. Our first question today comes from the line of Jaeson Schmidt at Lake Street. Please go ahead, Jaeson.
Hey, guys. Thanks for taking my questions. Just curious if you could quantify how much revenue was pushed out of Q1 into, into kind of Q2 and Q3?
We've not quantified that. But as a general number, it exceeded $1 million.
Okay. That's helpful. And then, Bob, I know you mentioned some of the traction you're seeing specifically with the IDIQ order in April, but curious if you could expand on that and just talk about some of the order patterns that you saw in April, and then now here in the first part of May?

So, I think it's a result of a lot of our website updates and our digital marketing capabilities has made us a better choice during this time of stay at home orders.
Okay, appreciate that color, And the last one from me and I will come back into queue. It sounds like you're not seeing it today. But given the potential for constrained budgets in the future, are you seeing any push back from customers from a pricing standpoint?
Thanks, Jaeson. Not any different than we've seen in the past. So, I, we always have the potential to encounter people that are very price sensitive. We do our best to explain that sometimes you get what you pay for and being a department that has selected the lowest cost simulation provider that may have the weakest training potential in life and death situations is not a great position to be in and actually can be counterproductive. We think we are in an area where effective training can many times win the argument over the lowest cost provider, and we certainly work hard to explain that. So and we also for those who do want quality training we also have the STEP program, the subscription arrangement so that
