Help writing persuasive memo?

You are Dave Jones, a claims adjuster for Statewide Insurance. Your job requires you to investigate automobile accident claims, negotiate settlements, and authorize payments. Customers are already distressed, of course, over their accidents. The last thing they need is a delay in settling their insurance claims and getting their vehicles repaired. Because you travel the entire eastern half of your state to physically examine the damaged vehicles and talk with those involved, you constantly have to search maps and the Internet for directions to many out-of-the-way places. It occurs to you that you could be more productive and provide better customer service if you had an onboard automotive navigation system that relies on the federally operated Global Positioning System (GPS). The device in which you are interested is the “Street Pilot,” which boasts a large color display as well as voice prompts (such as “turn right at next intersection”) and automatic routing capability. It is portable, so you can use it on any vehicle – which is particularly useful given that you sometimes have to fly to your destination and then rent an automobile. The cost is a one-time fee of $699, but there is no monthly access charge. Send a memo to your boss, Lisette Washington, Vice President of Operations, trying to sell her on the idea. * Don't write it for me just help me get started. give me some ideas on how dave jones shold convince his boss etc.*
