Mitchell RepairCenter ToolStore Integrates with Car-Part.com’s Pro Search

Mitchell has announced a new technology integration with Car-Part.com as a partner in the RepairCenter ToolStore, making it possible for body shops to search for green parts in the Car-Part Pro marketplace directly from the RepairCenter Workspace.

The Car-Part Pro marketplace, designed for body shops and insurance appraisers, is now integrated into RepairCenter through the RepairCenter ToolStore. Car-Part Pro allows professionals to search by delivery date, warranty, recycler certifications and part quality, and returns all inclusive pricing results from a database of 140 million parts, 4,200 recyclers and hundreds of alternative parts providers. The built-in Live Service messaging feature allows real-time communication with part suppliers, and Car-Part.com’s SmartVin technology decodes VINs to simplify part choices during the search.

“This integration gives Mitchell customers the ability to search for green parts and see only those that can be delivered within their cycle time window, meet their warranty criteria and conform to their quality standards,” says Jeff Schroder, founding CEO of Car-Part.com. “We know it’s crucial for shops’ profitability to have all the information they need at their fingertips, and we’re excited to provide a simple and powerful solution directly integrated into Repair Center.”

In addition to passing data to facilitate parts lookup and ordering, the RepairCenter ToolStore also provides the ability to receive data back from Car-Part Pro. This two-way integration empowers shops to eliminate the manual steps required to update relevant parts costing and estimate information in RepairCenter, further simplifying workflow. Car-Part Pro interface is offered at no additional cost in the RepairCenter ToolStore and takes one click to activate.

“Navigating the recycled parts marketplace can be a challenging proposition for shops. Now our customers can rely on Car-Part’s feature rich parts procurement solution to help them make more educated decisions about who they do business with and the parts they order,” said Peter Lovasz, senior director of Mitchell Repair Solutions. “Integrating the Car-Part Pro interface into RepairCenter makes the parts procurement workflow more streamlined and will benefit all stakeholders in the repair process.”
