Isn't the rule subject-verb agreement or some such? I think the analyst is thinking "This new process...improves adherence..."

My solution: "...benefits are...improved adherence...increased sales..." I know you wanted us to agree with you `,(

I'm going back and forth with an analyst on something. I have the
following paragraph:

This new process delivers the following benefits to the business:
- Improve adherence to corporate discount policies, increase sales
efficiencies, improve margins, automate and expedite a
standardized Discount Approval process.
- Automate workflow of schedule of authorization table lookup to:
- Confirm Level of authorization
- etc.....

She keeps adding an S at the end of many of the words, such as
Improves, increases, improves, expidites, Automates, Confirms, etc..

I think it reads better without the S and I'd like to offer a
gramatical rule to justify my position. I right, wrong, or neither, and if right or wrong, is
there a rule under which this falls?
