Truck repair professionals now have access to a full menu of labor times from a single source. With TruckLabor’s Standard Repair Times (SRTs), technicians, service writers and shop management can determine how long a repair will likely take for any medium- or heavy-duty truck. Service writers and supervisors can use TruckLabor to manage shop resources and optimize workflow. It also provides accurate estimates of when a truck might be back on the road.
TruckLabor is a cloud-based system, so labor time data is automatically updated and the shop’s latest estimates are auto-saved for quick retrieval. Technicians always have access to the most current information. The intuitive navigation guides the user through the steps to generate an estimate: 1) Identify the vehicle and selecting year/make/model. 2) Choose the labor operations and add parts if applicable. 3) Print the estimate.
“TruckLabor is a ground-breaking labor-time estimating solution for the Class 4-8 truck market," says Dave Costantino, director of Mitchell 1’s commercial vehicle group. "We've heard from many in the industry that this tool is needed, and we've committed significant development resources to make it a reality. This product is a great example of how Mitchell 1 listens to the market and continues to develop innovative solutions to help service professionals increase efficiency and accuracy.”
