Mitchell Announces Release of ABS® Enterprise

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2005 -- Mitchell International, Inc., a leading provider of information and workflow solutions to the automotive insurance claims and collision repair industries, today announced the release of ABS® Enterprise™, a web-based shop-management solution with expanded capabilities to meet the unique needs of multi-location and mega-shop collision enterprises. ABS Enterprise uses integrated Collision Industry Management Systems™ (CIMS) functionality recently acquired by Mitchell to answer demands for flexible, web-based management tools. ABS Enterprise is the latest addition to Mitchell's suite of information and productivity tools designed specifically to meet the needs of today's collision repairers.

Mitchell will continue to support and invest in its industry-leading ABS™ shop-management system to ensure it continues to meet the needs of the industry. "Mitchell's ABS shop-management solution has been the recognized industry-leader for more than a decade, and will remain so," said Marc Brungger, VP-Collision Sales at Mitchell. "The addition of ABS Enterprise to our solutions portfolio is merely an affirmation of the continuing commitment to the shop market that first earned Mitchell its prominent position -- enabling shop-owners and managers to choose the management system that's right for their business."

ABS Enterprise takes advantage of the speed and flexibility of a Web-based architecture to provide superior central oversight of large and/or geographically distributed operations. Job-status, parts-price changes, sales/close ratio data, and other critical information is updated instantly and automatically so managers will always know exactly what's happening in all areas of their business in real time, and can achieve greater economies-of-scale for increased efficiency and profitability. Detailed management information reports provide perspective and insight on aggregate and ongoing operations as well. Additional features like integrated load-leveling/scheduling, email, payroll, consolidated electronic RO review, EMS analysis, and a Palm Pilot™ interface provide further valuable functionality.
