RE: [Histonet] Ventant Benchmark

From:"Malcolm McCallum"

Undoubtedly the cost and maintenance of automation is cheaper than the cost of additional employees salaries and benefits accompanied by associated duplication of manual systems.  Additionally, equipment is depreciable, whereas human resources are a cost.

How come every one talks about the reliability and walk away technology, but
no one ever talks about the price of running these machines? Shouldn't cost

Oh, by the way, I told the same thing to my Ventana Rep on Friday. He knows,
so y'all don't need to call my CEO. Y'all know who you are.

Let the flaming begin.
