Mitchell International, Inc., announced the integration of its Special Materials Quick Reference Guide into the RepairCenter TechAdvisor auto repair shop software solution. The integration simplifies the structural identification process for technicians by presenting the special materials data in Mitchell’s proprietary format that remains consistent across the different OEM’s.
"Instant access to the Special Materials Quick Reference Guide via RepairCenter represents the first time that special materials specifications are available from multiple manufacturers in a consistent, user-friendly format from a single repair shop solution," said Jason Bertellotti, Mitchell’s vice president of repair solutions. "This enhancement is just one example of Mitchell’s ongoing commitment to optimizing the collision repair process. We continue to invest in TechAdvisor and find new ways to leverage Mitchell’s collision expertise to augment the OEM data and create a truly unique value proposition for the collision repair industry."
TechAdvisor’s Special Materials Quick Reference Guide helps ensure the proper repair of today’s advanced vehicles by identifying and color-coding special materials such as HSS and aluminum consistently across all manufacturers in an easy-to-read format, Mitchell says. Color codes indicate the composition of parts, helping technicians to perform the correct repair procedures and estimators to determine whether the parts can be repaired or replaced. Collision repairers are able to more quickly research today’s complex cars and trucks, write more accurate estimates, and ensure proper repairs with the end goal of reducing cycle times and increasing customer satisfaction, according to Mitchell.
