I suggest eliminating the use of primer by going with a higher quality of paint. I would use Benjamin Moore regal select eggshell and be certain that it will cover in two coats. There for eliminating not only the labor cost for priming but also the cost of the primer.
There is nothing more expensive than cheap paint

Using Promar 200 is like buying a van that carries 7/8 of what you need to carry everyday instead of spending a little more to buy a van that carries everything you need at once. You save a little money going in but at the end of the year it costs you big time. What if you could do your everyday work in 3/4 of the time? Would that save you money? And what if you could do the jobs you do every year with one or maybe even two fewer guys on the payroll for the year? Would that save you money?

What if you could paint a 200,000 square foot job in two fewer days? would that save you money? Does anybody think this way?

Of course people think the way you do PACman.

As an employer, it makes perfect sense.

Of course people think the way Oden does.

As an employee, his perspective is widely shared.

And do you really expect an hourly employee to tell you how you can cut his hours and make him more productive? Really? And do you expect him to say "wow! with this paint we could do more jobs this month!".

Or have him tell you that the extra $2.00 a gallon you spent on paint took away his "cake" overtime?

Bidniss is bidniss!

We use promar 200 all the time as well. I can promise you, 80% of companies can't match my companies speed....

Your speed argument is invalid.

And we have made promar do things that would seem impossible on paper.

Extra bonus: because it's cheaper, we can be wasteful and increase productivity.

Agreed. I don't use it often but it certainly take any more time to apply than a higher priced product. It might not hold up as long but that's about it.
