Scott DeGiorgia, general manager at Mitchell 1, says recent advances to the company’s TruckSeries suite of web-based software can significantly increase the efficiency of commercial vehicle service professionals.
TruckSeries provides access to complete labor estimating, diagnostic trouble code procedures and repair information for all makes of medium- and heavy-duty trucks in a single application.
“We are committed to continuously enhancing our software to provide all the information required to correctly diagnose and repair any make of truck in the fastest and least complicated way possible,” DeGiorgio said. “Our company started over 100 years ago with industry-leading printed repair manuals and is now providing the most complete web-based software for today’s commercial vehicles.
“And we are not done—many future advancements are on the horizon.”
Mitchell 1’s advanced 1Search Plus interface, as well as the company’s newly enhanced wiring diagrams, utilize intelligent navigation to speed up the work of the technician by taking him or her directly to the information required with fewer clicks, DeGiorgio said.
“The less time a truck is down for repair, the more time it is available to produce revenue,” he maintained.
The 1Search Plus interface streamlines search and navigation for diagnostic and repair information specific to the vehicle being serviced. A technician selects the vehicle he or she is working on, enters a search term for the type of repair required, and 1Search Plus brings together all relevant information in a user-friendly layout.
Similarly, Mitchell 1’s enhanced wiring diagrams take the user directly to the specific component diagram with the related wires automatically highlighted. The new navigation feature speeds up the search process and quickly opens the right diagram for the component being searched, without the need to scroll through multiple pages.
Mitchell 1′s TruckSeries is a comprehensive repair information software suite for Class 4-8 trucks, delivering a one-stop, single log-in, all-makes data resource with scalable wiring diagrams, digital pictures and DTC-to-diagnostics delivered in seconds, the company said. TruckSeries is integrated with Manager SE Truck Edition, Mitchell 1’s truck shop management software that delivers an end-to-end solution for every step of the repair process.
