Mitchell Releases Integrated Salvage Management Solution

WorkCenter™ Salvage 2.0 to Help Insurers Streamline Disposition Cost Management and Achieve a Higher Percentage of Positive Recoveries on Low-Value Salvage Vehicles

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the Property & Casualty claims and Collision Repair industries, today announced the release of WorkCenter™ Salvage 2.0, an innovative salvage management solution that helps carriers minimize the cycle time of salvage vehicles while maximizing their recovery value. The solution is fully integrated within WorkCenter, Mitchell's end-to-end physical damage claims settlement solution that powers an insurer's physical damage claims processing needs -- including dispatch, repairable estimating, total loss valuation, repair management, review and customer management. Using data-driven technology, WorkCenter Salvage 2.0 integrates workflows and enables users to process assignments more quickly and monitor "on-the-ground" salvage inventory for direct cycle time savings.

"Our mission is to deliver the best possible outcome, and to do so we put a great deal of passion into always improving insurance claims processing for our clients, every step of the way," said Paul Rosenstein, Vice President, Product Management for Mitchell. "To achieve positive recovery on low-value salvage vehicles and overcome inefficient salvage workflows that can cost extra cycle time days and higher disposition costs, insurers need consistent, real-time and accurate information delivered to them from an unbiased solution provider as part of their primary workflow. Salvage 2.0 provides this directly within WorkCenter."

WorkCenter Salvage 2.0 simplifies the entire salvage process by enabling users to monitor, manage and track all salvage-related activities -- including auction, owner retained, unrecovered theft, title work only, early tow, tow only and charitable donation -- from one central location. Data is transferred within WorkCenter automatically, enabling insurers to issue assignments faster by avoiding the manual rekeying of vehicle information. Users can easily select pools that best meet their needs by connecting to a network of more than 350 salvage yards (regardless of geography). They can also request bids directly from a small group of well-targeted buyers for low-value salvage vehicles for maximum efficiency gains.
