Mitchell 1 has awarded FedEx Freight technician Mark McLean, the Grand Champion of TMC’s SuperTech 2017 National Technician Skills Competition, with a subscription to TruckSeries that will allow him to access all of Mitchell 1’s online truck repair software for Class 4-8 trucks for a full year.
The event was part of the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council conference held September 16-21, at the Marriott Orlando World Center in Orlando, Fla.
TruckSeries, Mitchell 1’s suite of complete software solutions for the trucking industry, provides integrated access to labor estimating, diagnostic trouble code procedures and repair information for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles in a single application. TruckSeries is used for testing at the Service Information station each year at SuperTech.
Kristy LaPage, business manager for Mitchell 1’s commercial vehicle group, says that “Being the SuperTech Grand Champion for an unprecedented third time is a remarkable achievement. Mark’s skills clearly put him in the upper echelon of fleet maintenance professionals, and we are pleased to recognize his accomplishment with a complimentary subscription to TruckSeries.”
The TruckSeries software will give Mark and his company access to online repair information and tools to enhance repair efficiency on any brand of truck they operate and service.
Mitchell 1 has been a sponsor of the SuperTech national competition since its inception 13 years ago. Each year Mitchell 1 has run the Service Information skills station, testing competitors on their ability to use computers and web-based programs to diagnose and fix vehicles properly. In addition to involvement at the national level, Mitchell 1 also supports and participates in many state technician skills competitions.
