The Power of Now at GE

$1.6 billion saved last year from digitization, roughly 16% of the $10 billion GE expects to save annually by 2006

$3 million saved by GE's plastics division on payroll costs so far from switching to digital cockpits

$100 million freed up by digitizing inventory, accounts payable and receivables

$6 million saved in interest payments last year by knowing which customers paid bills late

5% improvement in GE Power Systems' inventory turns, and 10% hike in receivables turnover

$680 million cut from total purchasing costs last year by using online auctions

2 Times as many customers per salesperson can be handled, thanks to cockpits that guide price and sales
