PaintManager software is a proprietary network solution that helps boost collision center productivity by combining computerized color mixing accuracy and efficiency with comprehensive reporting and tracking features, according to PPG. Efficiency can be further enhanced by incorporating PPG’s paint shop interface utility, which allows sharing of critical workflow information between the front office and the paint operation.

Mitchell says its RepairCenter ToolStore program is a dynamic marketplace that enables body shops to connect with their mission-critical collision repair trading partners and third-party add-on tools in order to streamline workflow and run their businesses more profitably and efficiently.


By combining PPG’s PaintManager software with the RepairCenter ToolStore program, the companies say collision centers will be able to generate a seamless, easily accessible data stream to monitor and manage body shop repair and paint procedures. This will allow them to operate more efficiently while augmenting repair productivity and increasing revenue opportunities.

“Integrating these systems is part of our overall pledge to provide PPG customers with every opportunity to improve their paint operations,” said Mary Kimbro, PPG global color director. “We are very aware of our customers’ expectations in all aspects of their business. The PaintManager software was designed to be compatible with most body shop management systems on the market and the RepairCenter system is an exceptionally suitable counterpart for it. With the collision repair industry moving to new levels of technological capabilities, these two advanced applications represent the leading edge. By merging the two systems, collision shops can experience improved productivity, efficiency, management and, of course, financial performance.”


“We’re very pleased to be linking RepairCenter to PPG’s PaintManager,” said Jim O’Leary, vice president of repair solutions at Mitchell. “We have found the PaintManager program to be reliable and easy to use, and RepairCenter has repeatedly proven its worth in collision centers around the country. We firmly believe this is a good match.”

The PPG paint shop interface tool and the RepairCenter ToolStore system are available to collision centers through the ToolStore add-on.
