With the new wireless system, programs are fully transferred from the computer to the machine every time, and Mr. Stollen does not have to check the code multiple times to ensure it has completely transferred. "I would say it saves me around 15 percent of my time every day," he estimates. The wireless units came with some additional benefits as well. For instance, Mr. Stollen did not have to pay to replace the shop's cable infrastruc- ture, and he did not have to increase his insurance to replace the cables.
