Mitchell Announces Launch of RepairCenter on the Apple® iPad™ to Complement RepairCenter™ Mobile

For the First Time, Shops Can Write an Estimate and Run Their Complete Management System on the Apple iPad

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  Mitchell International, Inc., a leading provider of information, workflow and performance management solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced the launch of RepairCenter™ for the Apple® iPad™ to enable wireless shop management. The RepairCenter shop Workspace is now fully compatible with both the iPad and iPhone™ and is designed to enhance workflow by allowing collision repairers to stay connected to the shop and keep jobs moving -- even when they are not on-site.

The RepairCenter Mobile Application provides access to a variety of RepairCenter applications including customer and job tracking, task management, and vehicle repair status. Mobility gives collision repair owners and managers the ability to access the vital information they need to manage their business on the go and even write estimates quickly and accurately in the field -- from either the iPad or the iPhone.

"We are very excited to expand mobile access to the RepairCenter Workspace with the new iPad application. As the demands of the modern shop and the modern shop manager evolve, Mitchell is committed to evolving its technology to ensure those facilities operate as efficiently as possible," said Jason Bertellotti, Vice President of Repair Solutions for Mitchell. "Providing shops the ability to operate their management system and estimating system from their iPad is a great example of Mitchell's ongoing commitment to bringing new solutions to the market to fit our customers' work style and help them take better control of their operations to improve the way they do business."

From shop owners who travel between locations and want to maintain visibility while offsite to technology-savvy employees with higher expectations for technology, the iPad integration offers RepairCenter users a new level of flexibility in shop workflow and management.

Enabling RepairCenter and RepairCenter Estimating on the iPad builds on the iPhone application introduced last year. Shops can experience the RepairCenter iPad and iPhone solutions this year in the Mitchell booth (N1523) at NACE 2010 in Las Vegas. RepairCenter Estimating will be commercially availability in the first quarter of 2011. Mitchell RepairCenter is the industry's first shop Workspace, building on the strength of Mitchell's market-leading business management system, repair information content, and customer satisfaction services functionality.
