n A redeployment of one person from the buyer group to the sales force will increase sales by $300,000 a year.
-- Eliminated time for picking and scanning and signed paper at the counter could create an annual savings of $160,000.
-- Another position in accounts receivable and payable will be avoided, saving $40,000.
-- Plus, there will be savings from improved customer service.
