You have a chance to improve the way things are done that will increase sales, profits and move you and your team to the edge of greatness because you listened to the ideas from your stakeholders and decided to move on them.

Give them a fixed time frame to run the test. After you experience its success, expand it. Take the results of your test and determine its viability as a new process for the entire company.
