Mitchell International has announced a new partnership with GRC-Pirk to
provide environmental sustainability software to Mitchell RepairCenter
The integration with Mitchell RepairCenter, which is expected to roll
out early in the second quarter, will provide collision repair
facilities with tools to track their pollution prevention and energy
reduction efforts. According to Mitchell, the solution eliminates the
need for shops to document their results manually and helps reduce the
risk of non-compliance with regulatory requirements.
The GRC-Pirk GreenYield program extracts monthly repair order
performance patterns from Mitchell’s RepairCenter application and
compares equivalent engineering conversion units to previous
corresponding periods on a continuous basis.
"Our relationship with GRC-Pirk allows us to offer accounting and
sustainability solutions that operate in one package. In turn, our
customers can feel secure that they have the necessary data to validate
their green business achievements," said Jason Bertellotti, vice
president of repair solutions of Mitchell International. "Technology
tools from a company like GRC-Pirk let our customers focus on repairing
cars, not managing regulatory reports. We’re making it easier to help
shops help the environment and comply with the regulatory requirements."
Steven Schillinger, president of GRC-Pirk, added, "The launch of our
GreenYield application provides the technical mechanism for independent
reporting of insurance discounts, utility rebates and tax credits. These
scientifically derived datasets were developed in cooperation with the
U.S. EPA as the foundation for GreenSWEEP monitoring, an award-winning,
web-based tool that provides an official record of sustainable waste,
emissions and energy performance through dynamic, detailed tabular
"GRC-Pirk Management has become the ‘go-to’ compliance company for
collision repair shops and paint manufacturers alike," said Cassandra
Azzam, CFO of GRC-Pirk. "Our online services enable shop owners and
managers to better educate their customers and insurance providers on
the value of going green."
