Mitchell Provides Up-to-Date Recycled, A/M Parts Inventory with APU Solutions

Mitchell International, Inc., announced that it has expanded its partnership with APU Solutions to augment its estimating, shop management and workflow solutions by providing APU Solutions PartsNetwork to streamline recycled and aftermarket parts selection and sourcing.

APU Solutions PartsNetwork is an online software that provides real-time inventory searches and procurement for alternative parts. Enabling PartsNetwork to be used with the Mitchell estimating system provides collision repairers and carriers increased access to accurate parts pricing and availability, Mitchell says.

"Efficiency is key at a time when the economy is challenging the way collision repair industry participants operate," said Jesse Herrera, Mitchell International’s senior vice president of Product Management and Marketing. "By working with APU Solutions to expand our partnership, we’re able to help both collision repairers and insurers reduce cycle time and in turn increase efficiency and ultimately customer satisfaction with the claims experience."

Charles Lukens, APU Solutions’ CEO, said, "We’re excited about expanding our existing partnership with Mitchell to further streamline workflows and provide even greater efficiency gains for all collision repair partners involved the auto claims process.”
