why dont you just track both projects for a while and get some results
about the current productivity of both teams, say a month or two.
then put it into an analysis model showing the cost of moving either
team to the others toolset and the perceived cost reductions in the
long term supporting just one toolset.
these things always need to be analysed properly rather than gut
instincts and who can argue the best.
