Mitchell 1 says the introduction of its Manager SE Truck Edition truck repair shop management system means independent shops that service all makes of Class 4-8 trucks now have access for the first time to a system to help them manage every aspect of their operation.
“We are really pleased with the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received about the system as it reinforces what we believed – that Mitchell 1 is well positioned to deliver a product that can help the truck repair aftermarket get to the next level of sophistication in managing for success,” says Kristy LaPage, business manager for Mitchell 1’s commercial vehicle group. “Small and medium repair shops certainly operate differently from a truck fleet or a large dealer, so we specifically designed Manager SE Truck Edition to meet their distinct challenges and needs.”
Mitchell 1 says the independent truck repair market quickly recognized the benefits of this latest Mitchell 1 software innovation that delivers a complete system to help shop owners streamline all the shop functions required to run a successful business. Mitchell 1 has been a leader in delivering software to enhance shop productivity for more than 20 years.
“When Manager SE Truck Edition became available from Mitchell 1 earlier this year, we jumped at the chance to incorporate that with TruckSeries,” says Adam Burgess, manager at Joe’s Auto RV & Truck in Kingman, Ariz. “As our customers bring vehicles in for service, the programs manage the whole process from diagnostics to final invoicing and everything in between. The best thing is this is all done with one login. It’s made a huge difference to the truck repair side of our business, maximizing our resources to their full potential.”
Mitchell 1 says Manager SE Truck Edition integrates seamlessly with Mitchell 1’s TruckSeries, giving independent truck repair shops immediate access to repair information, trouble code diagnostic procedures, labor estimating and management tools on one platform.
The detailed overview of business activities and performance offered by Manager SE Truck Edition provides shops greater control and visibility to track vehicle repairs through every step of the process to be sure they are on schedule and contributing to the bottom line. Additionally, when combined with the optional ProPack customer communication toolbox, truck repair shops can quickly and easily build custom inspection worksheets specific to their needs, the company says.
TruckSeries is the only comprehensive repair information software suite of its kind available for Class 4-8 trucks, delivering a one-stop, single log-in, all-makes data resource with scalable wiring diagrams, digital pictures, DTC-to-diagnostics, and more, all delivered in seconds, Mitchell 1 says.
