Lighting the Way to Profit

Posted By: Alex Sun

Welcome to the Mitchell Repair Blog! I’m excited to introduce you to what will become an ongoing series of relevant discussions on topics that matter to you most. At Mitchell, we are always looking for ways to drive additional value to our customers, and we look forward to using this blog to share topical and important information with you that, in turn, can help you continue to grow and develop your profitable business.

Over the years, we have delivered industry-leading technology and innovative products that generations and generations of collision repair professionals have relied on to help their businesses succeed and adapt to industry changes. These breakthrough products have been focused on driving efficiencies, saving costs, and creating profitable outcomes within our clients’ businesses. A few examples of these developments include:

  • 1982: Mitchell delivers the collision industry’s first electronic estimating system called Mitchellmatix®
  • 1989: Mitchell introduces the first DOS-based estimating system that uses barcode reader technology.
  • 1994: Shops begins to utilize the industry’s first Windows®-based estimating system called Mitchell UltraMate®
  • 2005: Mitchell ABS™ (Advanced Business System) gives shops the first full-featured business management system.

This past year, we introduced the Mitchell RepairCenter™ ToolStore as the first (and only) platform that allows shops to build applications from industry partners-integrating seamlessly into their shop workflow. These apps instantly assist shops in their quest to streamline repair orders, ultimately giving our shop customers new ways to create more profit in repairs. And looking forward, later this year a series of innovative products and exciting new solutions will be released, giving body shops like yours all-new opportunities to drive profit throughout your entire enterprise. 

But delivering value to our clients is not just about delivering great products. It’s also about sharing information and engaging in discussions on critical topics. You’ll find this blog to be a part of our widening communications initiative designed around involving you in the gaining of knowledge, acquiring new skills and techniques, and opening access to powerful industry information that will help you be even more successful. 

We are continually adding new ways to communicate with our customers. So make sure to come back to this blog regularly where you’ll hear from our experienced Mitchell thought leaders on topics that I’m sure will be important and interesting to you. Please feel free to let us know if there is a topic you would like to know more about, and we will do our best work at looking into it and delivering the kind of thorough research and information Mitchell has been known for in our industry for over 67 years.
