To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its shop management software, Mitchell 1 has made major enhancements in the latest edition of the software, Manager SE version 7.0, that will help auto repair shop owners work more efficiently.
The enhancements include:
New Scheduler — The next generation of the shop scheduler/calendar is now built in at no additional charge. This helps shops improve workflow by maximizing available resources, including technicians, bays and equipment. Quick views by day, week and month, plus the option to quickly schedule same day appointments and warnings when resources are double-booked, give shops better control. They can create an appointment with integrated access to all of Manager SE’s estimating tools, including quick customer lookup and canned jobs, saving time and reducing double entry.
Plate to VIN — Shops can simply enter the license plate number and Manager SE automatically provides and decodes the VIN, quickly delivering vital vehicle information such as year, make, model, engine type, service history and account details to help speed up the estimating process for service writers. This feature is also included for free and with “no strings attached” with the Manager SE subscription.
User Interface Update — The 7.0 release has a new look and feel that is more modern in appearance and takes advantage of functionality in newer versions of the Windows operating system.
“Our goal at Mitchell 1 is to always provide solutions that will enable our shop clients to work efficiently in every aspect of the business so they can consistently deliver an outstanding repair experience to their customers,” said John Dwulet, senior product manager for Manager SE, Mitchell 1. “As we mark the 20th year of our shop management software, it’s truly remarkable to reflect on how far the industry has progressed. We’re thankful for our tens of thousands of loyal customers who have inspired the many enhancements implemented over the years.”
