Mitchell announced the winner of its Get-a-Life Dream Vacation contest held in 2011. Mitchell’s RepairCenter team presented Gabrielle Kephart of Wicklunds CARSTAR and Glass in Liberty, Mo., with a check totaling $5,000 in late December 2011, for an all expenses paid trip to Maui, Hawaii. RepairCenter is the industry’s first Shop Workspace solution that manages the repair, the customer and the business, all from a single personalized workspace, helping body shops manage their businesses so well that they have time to "get a life," Mitchell says.
"Congratulations to Wicklunds CARSTAR for winning Mitchell’s Get-a-Life Dream Vacation," said Jim O’Leary, Mitchell’s vice president of Repair Solutions. "We are pleased to empower shop employees to ‘get a life’ by simplifying every aspect of complex auto collision repair business environments. Mitchell’s RepairCenter auto shop management software streamlines key repair processes to help body shops be more efficient."
O’Leary added, "We believe that a trusted partnership founded on listening, responsiveness and collaboration is the cornerstone of Mitchell’s and our clients’ success, and we will continue building on the value we deliver to the collision repair industry."
"I’m thrilled that I won Mitchell’s Get-a-Life dream vacation I couldn’t believe that I won," said Gabrielle Kephart, collision repair consultant for Wicklunds CARSTAR. "Mitchell RepairCenter is a great program that helps me daily in my job, from managing and navigating through files to get info on a certain file. I’m looking forward to having an amazing time in Maui with my mother."
Mitchell notes that RepairCenter’s flexible design allows auto body shops to select the tools they need to create a customized Workspace that meets their exact needs, and then add modules as their businesses evolve.
